Tip for Successful Fundraising
TELL YOUR STORY
Communication is key and passion is power. Tell your visitors why you are fundraising and what direct positive impact their support will have. Better yet, say it in a YouTube video!
SHARE YOUR PROJECT LINK
Tell friends, family and colleagues about your project through personal e-mails, word of mouth, Facebook, Twitter or your blog. Always include a link to your project page.
THANK YOUR DONORS
Keep your donors motivated by taking the time to thank each one individually when they make a donation. This often leads to more donations.
PROVIDE REGULAR UPDATES AND KEEP ASKING
Let your followers know how your fundraising project is going, whether it is preparing for a race or reaching an important milestone. Always include an ask in your update.
MOBILISE YOUR NETWORK
As the saying goes, “1 plus 1 equals 11”. Raise the visibility of your project by asking your network to spread the word about it!
