Hi DASH Fall Fundraiser 2019-20 parents and supporters!
We’re kicking off our fundraiser with Snap! Raise, the nation’s leading fundraising platform for groups,
clubs and teams.For the past five years, Snap! Raise has helped more than 35,000 groups in the U.S.
raise more than $400M in funding! I’m excited to get started and have one vital request.
I ask that you help your student identify at least 20 people they will reach out to via Snap! Raise, and
gather their email address prior to our team meeting on Thursday, September 26.
The list of 20 people should include many of your child’s biggest fans and needs to be completed in
full to ensure our campaign is set up for success. It is my hope and expectation that each student will
have a major impact on our program. Here are next steps:
• Help your student select at least 20 potential supporters
• Enter their names and correct email into the NOTES feature on your students’ phone
• Avoid using emails of teachers, peers of your students, or strangers
Here are 20 examples of people your student should consider adding at a minimum.
1. Parent(s)/Guardian #1 12. Family friend #1
2. Parent(s)/Guardian #2 13. Family friend #2
3. Grandma 14. Former coach
4. Grandpa 15. School alumni
5. Cousin(s) 16. Local business that knows you
6. Uncle(s) 17. Neighbor(s)
7. Aunt(s) 18. Parent co-worker(s)
8. Family doctor 19. Friends of parent
9. Orthodontist/dentist 20. Adult sibling(s)
10. Church/Social leader
11. Scout/troop leader

Thank you for all of your continued support of our program!
