River Falls Youth Softball Organization Parents and Supporters,
We’re kicking off our fundraiser with Snap! Raise, the nation’s leading fundraising platform for groups, clubs, and teams. For the past six years, Snap! Raise has helped more than 40,000 groups in the US raise more than $400 Million in funding! We are excited to get started. It’s easy and effective and will only take 20 minutes of your time.
Snap! Raise utilizes email, text and social media to reach out to your child’s and program’s biggest fans. Your role as the parent is to compile a list of 20 emails (examples below). the list needs to be completed in full to ensure our campaign is set up for success. It is our hope and expectation that each family will complete this very simple task to support our program!
The next steps
1. You and your player will receive and follow the link and/or QR Code that is sent to create a Snap! Raise account (or Log In if you have participated before) and join our campaign page. When you receive the link/QR Code you will:
a. Make sure to upload a nice profile picture, donors will see your child when they open the email and we want to ensure they know it is from them.
b. If YOU, the parent, are creating the account, use your child’s name, the profile is created by you on their behalf, only 1 account per household needed. If you have more than 1 child put both of their first names in the First Name Field.
c. Enter your emails of potential supporters. The more the better!
d. Complete your account, that’s it. Snap! Raise takes it from there. You will also have the opportunity to text your link to supporters and share your link on your social media channels once we activate the page on October 11.
*Snap! Raise never sells, shares, or spams the email addresses entered in the campaign.

River Falls Youth Softball will be running the 50/50 Raffle at Johnnies on Friday evenings and we need your support! It's a great way to raise money for the association and help keep our fees down. We have recently been able to purchase a pitching machine and build a batting cage at PR's with some of the funds we have raised.
