Sponsorship

MS appreciates you supporting your child's fundraising efforts in the MS Readathon. One of the most valuable things you can do is help them manage their fundraising.

Tips for Managing Fundraising

  • Make sure you talk to your child about who they'll be asking to sponsor them. MS stresses the importance of NEVER asking strangers for money.
  • Your child can be sponsored in a number of ways: some people will prefer making a flat donation, and others will sponsor an amount for time spent reading, or the number of items read. Either is okay.
  • If your child is not working online, and recording sponsors manually, make sure their records are up-to-date and have the names of all sponsors and the amount they have donated.
  • If someone has sponsored your child more than $2 you can ask them if they would like a receipt from your MS Readathon Receipt Book. You can request these online or by contacting the MS Readathon.
  • Talk to your child about where the collected money should be kept - make sure it's in a safe place.
  • Keep encouraging your child. Every dollar they collect, every book they read, makes a difference.
