Fundraising Tips


What inspires you to ride for Bike MS? How do you connect with your friends and family to support you financially in your journey to raise money and awareness to help find a cure for MS?

Team Left Hand focuses on the 4 P's of fundraising: PASSION, PERSISTENCE, PHILANTHROPY and PEOPLE FOCUSED

  • People are more likely to listen, believe and donate when you speak directly from the heart, passionately.
  • Be persistent with your audience, make the ask more than once.  A personal direct ask if more likely to say yes.
  • What is your Philanthropy?  Giving of time (a 2 day weekend)?  Giving of talent (riding 100 miles)? Helping to make life better for other people (finding a cure for MS)?
  • Who are you riding for?  What is your experience with MS?  How has your life been impacted by MS?
