general questions

Where does my donation or my fundraising go?

100% of the funds raised will go directly to supporting LoveYourBrain’s programs, which improve the quality of life for people affected by traumatic brain injury.  

 

How do I spread the word?

  • Plan early and start early! Begin marketing your class through the studio, by word of mouth and online as soon as possible
  • Utilize our media kit
  • Post about your activation (class, event or campaign) on social media and be sure to tag @LoveYourBrain and hashtag #LoveYourBrain so we can like it and repost

 

Can I sell LoveYourBrain Merchandise to raise awareness for your organization?

Yes you can. You can purchase LoveYourBrain merchandise online from us at: http://www.loveyourbrain.com/store/ and sell it at retail price. All proceeds from sales go to support the programs made possible by LoveYourBrain.

 

Is there a timeline for meeting my fundraising goal?

We hope you can meet your goal less than 1 year from the date you setup your fundraising page (and we'll do all that we can to help you get there!) but if you don't hit your goal by that time, keep going! We're here to help so if you need inspiration, reach out to us.

 

How will LoveYourBrain acknowledge the fundraising benchmarks? 

LoveYourBrain will highlight your fundraising efforts through our social media, as well as send you a special gift of gratitude in the mail.  

 

Will I or my donors receive a tax­ deductible receipt?

Yes!  For all donations made online, you will be issued a receipt via email.  For all donations by check over $100, you will be issued a hard copy receipt.  For offline donations (i.e. checks) less than $100, please request if you need a receipt and we will gladly issue one.


Donation-based class specific questions

What is the best way to get funds to LoveYourBrain following my studio’s donation-based class?

  • Set up your own fundraising page: after setting up your own fundraising page, direct students to donate in advance of your class (best option!) or at the beginning of class on their mobile devices -- if the studio has an iPad or laptop you can have the page up and ready to go. You can check the progress of who has contributed and use it as a pre-registration tool.
  • Cash: you can collect cash from students and after the class is over send us a check or make a donation online in the amount of money raised to your fundraising page
  • Personal check: You can ask students to bring a personal check made out to the LoveYourBrain Foundation and mail the checks to us at: PO Box 247, Norwich VT 05055. Please make sure to note your name, the studio name and we will add this amount into your fundraising page.

 

What if my studio uses pre-­paid punch cards?

We suggest giving your students the option to use their punch card or make a donation out-of-pocket.  If a student chooses to use their punch card, it is the responsibility of the studio to record this class as a donation and make a contribution to us by check or online. 


event specific questions

What is the best way to get funds to LoveYourBrain following my event?

  • Set up your own fundraising page: after setting up your own fundraising page, direct people to donate in advance of your event (best option!) or at the door of the event -- if you have an iPad or laptop you can have the page up and ready to go. You can check the progress of who has contributed and use it as a pre-registration tool.
  • Cash: you can collect cash from students and after the class is over send us a check or make a donation online in the amount of money raised to your fundraising page. Money orders work too!
  • Personal check: You can ask people to bring a personal check made out to the LoveYourBrain Foundation and mail the checks to us at: PO Box 247, Norwich VT 05055. Please make sure to note your name, the studio name and we will add this amount into your fundraising page.
