Talking Points and Examples

Asking for donations can be hard, and doesn’t come naturally to most people. The key is to remember that you are offering an opportunity for your friends and family to be a part of something special, something unique, and something that is making the world a better place, one camper at a time. Need some ideas about how to bring in the bucks? Here are some helpful talking points to get you started:

  • Make it personal. Share why camp is not just important, but important to you. ex: “My parents met at Camp Kinderland, so I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for this special summer camp with a conscience!”
  • Share a specific memory. Bring your friends into your experience by sharing a funny or heartfelt story that they can relate to. ex: “Camp Kinderland was the place I…learned how to swim, had my first kiss, developed an activist spirit”
  • Talk about its impact on you. Tell your friends why you have Kinderland to thank for your career choice, your social justice engagement, or for introducing you to the friends you have had for a lifetime, and how this has helped you become the person you are today. ex: “It if weren’t for Kinderland, I may never have developed a passion for socially conscious theater, so ConsciousClowning may never have gotten off the ground!”
  • Make a clear and actionable pitch. Explain why you are asking for donations, and ask your contacts for a specific amount.
