Halton Down Syndrome Association, a non-profit organization, participates in the Annual Buddy Walk and has been doing offline paper pledge forms to raise support through the participants for the past number of years. Successful – yes! This year HDSA decided that they needed to take their event to the next level and look for an online fundraising program to meet the needs of their participants and their donors.
Not only does utilizing RaiseAThon’s online fundraising platform make fundraising easier and more convenient for the participants and the donor. Now the event coordinator has more time to make the actual event day larger than life. HDSA was able to rest easy as they could see the fundraising dollars come in, in real time, and know that they were going to far exceed their goals. Halton Down Syndrome and their Buddy Walk www.haltonbuddywalk.com had an initial goal of $20,000 for this year’s walk. They moved the needle up to $30,000 when they blew their first target and decided to leave it at that. It wasn’t long when they had surpassed their original target by a long shot with a final fundraising dollar amount of $53,190 by utilizing RaiseAThon’s online fundraising tool.
Not only did they raise more money for valuable programs within their organization, but they raised awareness to their organization simply by going online and people now having the ability to access information about their organization.
Congratulations Halton Down Syndrome on your great success!
