Inform and inspire. You want to motivate as many friends as possible to give to your nonprofit of choice so you can amplify your impact. That means educating your friends, and telling the story of why this cause matters to you.
Stay involved. Check in and comment often, call out your friends to thank them when they donate, and encourage them to share the Fundraiser with more people.
Present a strong call-to-action. Giving people a milestone to work toward helps rally the crowd behind a common monetary goal.
Track your goals. Post announcements when you reach a fundraising goal, to remind people and keep them motivated. And if you reach your goal early, celebrate by raising the bar and setting the goal higher.
Offer a match. If it’s possible for you, offer to match your friends’ donations. With new matching tools, we’re making it easy fundraiser creators to pledge to match donations to incentivize giving.
Share inspiring content. Post announcements when you reach a fundraising goal, to remind people and keep them motivated. And if you reach your goal early, celebrate by raising the bar and setting the goal higher.
Take it offline. If possible, host an in-person party or event to continue getting your friends excited about the cause and your goal.
Follow up. At the end of the fundraising event, always report and celebrate the impact that your friends’ donations had on advancing your nonprofit’s mission.
