Make Fundraising FUN! 

The Big D Climb has shown tremendous growth not only in number of climbers but also in the funds raised over the last six years. To date, the Big D Climb has raised over $745,000 towards our mission to find a cure for blood cancers!

How can you help? After you register either online or offline, you will be given a personal online fundraising page. Take five minutes to set up your page and send out emails to your supporters. You'll be surprised to see how easy it is to raise funds!

In addition to helping raise money for a very important cause, you can also earn exciting thank you gifts based on the amount you raise. (Check them out in the bar to the right.)  

Fundraising Tips  

1. By far, the fastest and easiest way to raise money is to use your personal online fundraising page. Customize your page and send an email to your list of contacts with a link to your fundraising page! Your donors even automatically get a receipt online! Very simple and quick to use.

2. Share your connection to the cause. If you or someone you know has battled a blood cancer, do the event in their honor or in their memory.

3. Set a goal and reach it in manageable steps.  To raise $400:   





1 x $25


Two family members

2 x $25


Five friends

5 x $25


Five co-workers

5 x $25


A neighbor

1 x $25


Someone from your book club or athletic team

1 x $25


Your hairdresser, dry cleaner or doctor

1 x $25





4. Remember to ask donors if their company has a matching gift program. Matching gifts can double, or even triple the original donation amount.

5. Don't forget the power of social media. Post a link to your personal fundraising page on your Facebook or Twitter page or blog about it and watch the donations come rolling in!
