Tips to help you raise funds

  • Fundraise online - Set up an online sponsorship page through Facebook or JustGiving. This is a hassle-free way for your friends, family and colleagues to donate online and even spread the word on your Facebook page by attaching a direct link to your fundraising page.
     
  • Recipes – Take a look at our celebrity recipes – https://www.cancer.ie/cupsagainstbreastcancer/recipes. These are both delicious and healthy and would be great for your get together!

  • Downloads – Check out our downloads here – https://www.cancer.ie/cupsagainstbreastcancer/downloads. From invites to bunting we have your event covered!

  • Other – Don’t fancy a coffee morning? Why not try another fundraising idea? You could dye your hair pink, turn your community pink – the options are endless. Be as creative as you can!

  • Spread the word – Tell EVERYONE about your Cups Against Breast Cancer event – create a Facebook event and tag @IrishCancerSociety so we can like and share! Tag us on Twitter @IrishCancerSoc and on Instagram @IrishCancerSociety and use the hashtag #CupsAgainstBreastCancer so we can help you spread the word. If your friends and family don’t know about your event, they can’t attend and donate!

  • Hold a raffle – Ask your local shops to donate small hampers or a gift voucher to raffle off at your coffee morning. 1 ticket for €2 or 3 tickets for €5.

  • Set a goal – Having a set goal is a great motivator to you and to your friends and family to help you reach your target!

  • Get dialled in – Our fundraising team are here to help! Give them a call at 1850 60 60 60.

  • Start early – The earlier you begin, the more people you can reach and the easier your fundraising will be.

  • A healthy competition – Have your guests make their favourite dessert or treat and let everyone vote on which one is the best, but a vote costs €3 each!

  • Show your gratitude – Any time someone makes a donation, remember to say thank you with a quick email or a status update on social media.
