Top Fundraising Club

The Take Steps Top Fundraising Club recognizes all the hard work you put into raising money in support of IBD research. We want to celebrate the incredible milestones you achieve, and the difference you make in the lives of those living with these diseases. Each Take Steps walk’s Top Fundraising Clubs differ in terms of benefits and fundraising minimum to gain entry. We hope you will set an ambitious goal and the tips below will help you meet it!

  • Build your team: The average Take Steps fundraiser raised $686 in 2020 so the more friends, family and co-workers that join your team, the better chance you have of being in the Top Fundraising Club.
  • Set a goal: Donors like to see that their donation is building towards something. Setting a goal helps them decide how much they want to donate and gives them the satisfaction of seeing your thermometer grow closer to that goal because of them!
  • Ask everyone to fundraise: Not only does fundraising give everyone the satisfaction of supporting the IBD community, it allows more donors to get involved with the cause since members of your team will all have different networks to include.
