Ask for higher donations for the Boston Marathon

  
  
  
 



As the Boston Marathon draws closer, we thought we’d make it a point to discuss the incredible fundraising opportunities an event like this has to offer. With this unofficial series, we will be shedding a little light on fundraising for this marathon up until the big day.



When making fundraising goals, one has to understand the typical donation environment; what’s realistic, what’s not, and what to expect. Our previous study on the 2010 Boston Marathon shows that the average donations per fundraising page range between $25 - $75, and $100 - $150, while the average donation is $75. You can see here the further breakdown in the donation amounts:



With the most popular donation range falling between $25 - $75, most Boston Marathon fundraisers will be receiving donations below $75. However, this does not undermine the importance of the donations over $100. These larger contributions are vital in meeting your fundraising minimums. And don't forget about those larger, individual sum donations as well! One $500 donation can make up for ten smaller ones. See what works best for you and your network and don't hesitate to ask for more.
