Event Profile

Situated in the beautiful Yarra Valley, the Harvest Run event is not your regular fun run. If your supporters love running, great food and wine then this race is perfect for them! They will have the option of participating in the 5.3k or 13.5k distances and can unwind afterward by sipping on local wine and snacking on delicious treats.

Asking your supporters to compete for you

It’s easy to make the most of the event opportunity. It all begins with asking your supporters to take part and support you by giving their effort and time. Make sure you ask:
  • Past supporters who have run, walked, ridden or swam for you previously
  • Both your one-off and regular donors, by offering them another way they can support you with their effort
  • Your volunteers
  • Your charity’s staff

Setting up a charity team

Setting up a fundraising team is a great way to build a sense of community for all your supporters in the event. Once you’ve created your charity team, make sure you invite anyone supporting you in the event to join. Need help setting up a charity team? download our guide here.

Reporting

Don’t forget to use your data to grow your fundraising results in 2019!

Fundraiser and Donor Reports can be found under the Reports Tab when you are logged in to your Charity Profile.

Data Tips:
  • If you are short on time, download your Fundraiser Report and identify those who have set their fundraising goal higher than the default. Reach out to these potential star fundraisers and ask how you can assist them with their fundraising efforts.
  • To help with fundraiser acquisition make sure you email your past fundraisers as well as their peer donors who have opted-in to hearing more from your organisation. This data can be found in your Donor Report.
  • Don’t forget to thank all your fundraisers post-event. This small but significant gesture will help cultivate stronger relationships and brand loyalty.
