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 3rd 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.

Hi [RECIPIENT NAME], 

I hope you’re doing well! Today is Midlands Gives, and if you’re looking for a cause to support, I’d love for you to consider donating to Fact Forward. Fact Forward’s work ensures bright futures for South Carolina adolescents by empowering them with evidence-based strategies to make healthy reproductive choices.  

Fact Forward, formerly the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy, has led a statewide effort to advocate for teen reproductive health since 1994. Due in part to their work over the past 25 years, the teen birth rate in South Carolina has declined 70%... but there’s still more work to do. STIs are on the rise, and unintended pregnancies among young adults are up. With your support, I know they can continue to make a positive impact in our state. 

If you're able to make a contribution this Midlands Gives (May 4th) please consider supporting the great work that Fact Forward is doing. You can donate at https://www.midlandsgives.org/factforward

Even if you can't give monetarily this year, you can help us spread the word. 

Share the reasons that you support Fact Forward with the hashtags #MidlandsGives and #FactForward on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and be sure to mention us in your post using the handle @FactForwardOrg. 

Thanks so much, [RECIPIENT NAME].  

Best, 

[NAME]
