Fundraising with Team Tourette

Team Tourette is comprised of the TAA’s supporters who walk, run, and ride to raise funds and awareness for Tourette Syndrome and other Tic Disorders.

Peer-to-peer fundraising involves Team Tourette members raising funds for research, support, programs, and advocacy efforts by reaching out to members of their personal networks, such as friends, family, and colleagues, and encouraging donations in support of Team Tourette's goals. It's a collaborative effort where each member of Team Tourette plays a role in raising funds and spreading awareness.

Fundraising Tips

  • Start your campaign off right by donating to your fundraiser.! By making the first donation, you show your commitment to the cause. This will give your campaign the momentum it needs as you share it with others.
  • Host a fundraiser like a bake sale, benefit concert, or car wash!
  • Personalize your outreach - When reaching out to your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues, make sure to personalize your message and make it about them. Explain how their support will make a difference and how it will help you achieve your fundraising goals.
  • Use eye-catching statistics across social media - Sharing statistics about Tourette Syndrome and other Tic Disorders can help spread awareness and encourage people to support your fundraising efforts.
    • Example: Did you know that 1 in 50 school-age children are impacted by Tourette Syndrome or another Persistent Tic Disorder? Let's come together and support the Tourette Association of America (TAA) in their efforts to provide support and resources to people impacted by TS and other Tic Disorders.
  • Show gratitude- A little "thanks" can go a long way. Remember to thank your donors who supported you last year and ask if they will renew their support this year.
  • Pay it forward - Reach out to the businesses and organizations you've supported in the past and ask for their support in return. You'll be surprised how many will be willing to help!
