Step-By-Step Supporter Guide


FirstGiving is the world’s most advanced peer-to-peer giving platform, allowing individual supporters to fundraise for their favorite causes. By empowering people to utilize their own network of contacts, FirstGiving allows an individual supporter to set a goal that is two or three times their own giving capacity… and to reach that goal easily! Learn more about how FirstGiving works HERE.


Follow These Steps:

  1. Visit our FirstGiving Page HERE
  2. Select “Start Fundraising” to begin registration
  3. Select “Support Saint André Bessette’s Annual Fund” (or use the drop down menu to select a customized way to fundraise, such as a sporting event, memorial, etc.)
  4. Once on the Annual Fund page, you will be able to learn more about how our FirstGiving fundraising is going, and start your own page to fundraise
  5. Select “Fundraise” at the top of the page
  6. Create your free FirstGiving account & select “Next” (you’re 30% done!)
  7. Create your page title, image & story – consider including information to your friends, family, and colleagues about why you’re supporting Saint André Bessette and what our community means to you – then determine how much you would like to raise & consider making the first gift to your own pledge to set the pace! Finally, select “Next” (you’re 60% done!)
  8. If you’ve decided to make your own first gift, complete your donation information and select “Submit” (you’re 90% done!)
  9. You can follow the prompts to view & enhance your page, including adding photos and/or videos, adding more details, editing your goal, etc.
  10. And finally – and DON’T SKIP THIS STEP – it’s time to spread the word! Email your FirstGiving page to your contacts, post a link on Facebook or Twitter, and phone a few friends to get the giving started! Keep up the great work and celebrate, because now, you’re 100% done!
