Run Wild for Autism | Fundraising Toolkit

This toolkit is full of fundraising ideas to help make #RunWild2018 the most successful year yet!

We will periodically be awarding prizes to the top fundraising team.
Keep an eye on our social media pages for contest announcements.

Start a Team

Last year, you raised nearly $75,000 to support our FREE services for Maryland families. Most of that support was in the form of team donations.

Customize your team page with photos and your personal story. The more donations your team brings in, the more families we are able to serve. YOU can make #RunWild2018 the most successful year yet!


Use the Send Emails tool or click on the email icon in your Fundraising Center to request donations from your family, friends, and coworkers. We provide a template with a sample message which you can customize to make your own.

Corporate Matching

Did you know? Many companies will DOUBLE your impact by matching your charitable giving. Check with your employer or human resources department, request a matching gift form, and send with your donation. Some companies will match gifts from retirees and even spouses.

Find out if your company has a matching gift policy.

Restaurant Nights

Many restaurants and fast food places are willing to donate a percentage of a night’s proceeds to charitable causes. You may be asked to provide our Non Profit ID# which is 52-2226573.

Ask for a Team Donation in place of a gift

Before Run Wild on September 30, will you be having a birthday, retirement, wedding, or other typical gift-giving event? Ask for donations in lieu of gifts.

Social Media

Post a link to your team fundraising page directly from your Fundraising Center using the Facebook and Twitter icons.

Be sure to include the hashtags #RunWild2018 and #RunWildForAutismand when telling your story, use #WhyWeRun.
