    Dear Texas Chapter Membership,

    SCCM is asking section and chapter members to become fundraising ambassadors to help raise much-needed funds for SCCM's disaster relief efforts for COVID-19 and other national disasters. 

    The campaign is called the Summer Games Challenge and runs from August 23 through September 6, 2021, at 11:59 P.M. Central Time, overlapping with the end of the Summer Olympics. The concept is similar to a Facebook birthday fundraising event where fundraisers email a donation page link to friends, family, and colleagues requesting a donation to SCCM. Pretty simple!

    Just like the Olympic games, competition always brings out the best in participants. To create a little friendly competition and to add some motivation to help each section and chapter go for the gold, all participants will be eligible to earn prizes for themselves and their team. Top fundraisers will receive valuable SCCM store coupons, and all sections and chapters will receive 20% of the total money they raise.

    Below is a Quick Start Guide to Fundraising  that explains the challenge, prizes available, and how to get started. You will also find step-by-step instructions on setting up a personal fundraising page, links to helpful training videos, fundraising tips, and FAQs.


    How to get started as a fundraiser


    1. Visit https://app.mobilecause.com/vf/SCCM and select your chapter or section.
    2. On your chapter or section page, select "Join This Team" to become a fundraiser or "Make a Donation" to donate to your chapter or section.  Select Texas Chapter!
    3. To become a fundraiser, complete the information and click submit.
    4. Personalize your page with a picture, set your goal, add a personal message or story to the pre-populated text on the page, and click "Save."
    5. Watch this tutorial on how to set up your personal fundraising page: http://mcause.us/fundraiser
    6. Once your page is set up, send out seven to 10 emails to friends, family, and colleagues asking for a donation. Feel free to send out emails before the official start of the campaign.

    Should you have any questions about the challenges or need help with the donor website, please contact Mark Lenhart, SCCM's Chief Philanthropy Officer, at mlenhart@sccm.org or +1 847 827-7633 for assistance.

    On behalf of SCCM, thank you for your participation in this campaign as we continue to provide support for both healthcare professionals and patients worldwide during these uncertain times.


    Good luck!
