Register for UMPQUA STRONG. Not a runner OR walker? Make a donation to the concert or even register as a volunteer, then you will have access to your own exclusive fundraising page.
SHARE YOUR STORY
Each participant is given the option to create a custom fundraising page. Share why you are #UMPQUASTRONG by uploading photos and writing a unique message to greet your donors. Be the star and shine for those charities!
Recruit your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to join your team and start asking for donations. Lead by example- start the ball rolling by being your first donor!
Go OFFLINE and do it the old fashioned way- Host a game night, a movie marathon, or turn on your favorite sporting event. Ask guests to make a donation to your personal UMPQUA STRONG page. You can even have a casual prize drawing for a gift card or prize- and donate the proceeds back to your page. Or ask your employer if your company matches charitable contributions- double the bang for your buck!
Track Your Progress
Stay connected to your generous donors by tracking your progress and following up on donation requests. They say ‘fortune is in the follow up’- so check back in every few weeks to let people know they can still contribute to the cause. Make it personal- let people know WHY this is important to you.
