Be a Fact Forward Champion  

What are Champion Pages?  

Champion Pages are a way for donors to connect their passion and network by creating a personal campaign to raise money on behalf of any nonprofit organization participating in Midlands Gives. Donors can create a custom web page with a goal, photos, and a personal appeal. Once the page is set up, they can share it with friends and family. You must create this page by May 2 if you’re interested.  

How to Set Up Your Champion Page:

Visit the Fact Forward Midlands Gives page https://www.midlandsgives.org/factforward. Click “Create a Champion Page.” You will be asked to create a donor account – it doesn’t take long. Click on the tab My Champion Pages to create your campaign. Fill out the information. See suggestions below:  

  1. Title of Champion Page: Join Me in Supporting Fact Forward!  
  2. Goal: $1,500 
  3. Hero Image: Fact Forward Logo (attached) 
  4. Fundraiser Story: “Giving adolescents the facts they need to make healthy decisions is a community effort. Fact Forward helps train and educate people who work with young adults. They teach parents how to talk to their kids about the issues. They promote easy access to reproductive healthcare, and they work with a variety of organizations to promote policies and initiatives that improve reproductive health outcomes. I’m proud to be board member at Fact Forward – help me support them this Midlands Gives.”  

You’ll then submit your campaign for approval and it will show up live on the Midlands Gives page.

I hope this note finds you well!

As you may know, today is Midlands Gives. As you may not know, Fact Forward is the organization that deserves your support most. And here's why.

Their evidence-based strategies lead to healthy reproductive choices. Want proof? It's all in the numbers. Over the past twenty years, as a result of Fact Forward and other likeminded organizations' hard work, the teen birth rate in South Carolina has fallen by a staggering 73%.

That's an astonishing statistic, one well worth celebrating. But we can't afford to get complacent. Especially with STIs on the rise.

With your support, Fact Forward can continue its vital work of advancing reproductive health across the Palmetto State. Make a contribution on or before May 2 for Midlands Gives. You can donate here: https://www.midlandsgives.org/factforward

Not in a position to donate? No problem. Help us get the word out about Fact Forward on social media.
