How It Works

Register to participate

Set up your own Manna March Fundraising Page! 

 

Why walk against hunger? Is it for human dignity,  just the right thing to do? Whether standing up for children not going to bed hungry or to support your community, join us in taking a stand against hunger. 

 

Get Started

Now that you know how each page works, it’s time to get out there and fundraise! Once you claim your page and log in, give these three steps a try to get yourself started:

 

1. Register to Participate – All gifts to your fundraising page will not only be credited to you and/or your team, but they will also directly help individuals and families coping with food insecurity.  Step up to help the one in nine children who go to bed hungry in the greater St. Louis area. 

 

2. Create a Personal Fundraising Page - Once you register, you can create a personal or team giving page. Follow the prompts provided to quickly make changes . The more personal you make your page, the more likely people will make a gift. Easily share the link and invite others who also want to support people who are hungry during this most difficult time. All donations are credited to you and your team (if you have one). 

For example, if you are a member of a team and a friend donates $50 to your Manna March Fundraiser Page, then the total on your Manna March Fundraiser Page and yourTeam Page will show a $50 increase.

3. Reach Out to Friends and Family Invite your friends, colleagues, family, neighbors to join. We make it easy. Make a list of 10 people you’d like to ask and then reach out to them directly, via phone, text, email or even in person. A direct ask is more likely to be successful and will help build your fundraising confidence.

 

4. Spread the Word – Use social media to let all your friends and family know you are fundraising for Feed My People. We suggest trying to make one post a week so that people get multiple reminders.

 

 

Don’t Forget! Your workplace can also be a great place for fundraising. Not only can you ask your co-worker to join you in supporting Feed My People, but don’t forget to check about your company’s matching gift policy to help double your impact!
