One of your biggest tasks for One Day for Dawgs is spreading the word! You need to let your supporters know how they can help your day be a success. The information outlined below are suggestions to help you build an engagement plan to reach your supporters before, during, and after the event. 

As you know your audience best, use discretion and adjust to what you feel will work best for your cause and supporters.

Social Media

Social media is one of the best ways to engage supporters with your message. Posting early and often, while reminding your audience of your mission and how these funds will help you support students is a key to success!

Email allows you to share a bit more content and tell your story directly to your supporters in their inbox. If you need help requesting audience data, reach out to a member of the advancement team for help.
