Best Fundraising Tips for Your Organization:
1. Tell them to Create a List
Start by puting together a list of friends, family, co-workers, work out buddies, etc… (i.e. potential donors). Think creatively here. Do you have neighbors, doctors, sports club members, etc. that might support you?Remember, it doesn’t hurt to ask so build the biggest list you can by including everyone you can think of!
2. Set a Fundraising Goal and Continue to Raise It
Make sure you set a goal. Having something to aim for always helps and most people end up doing better than they originally thought so aim high! Normally, you set your goal at the start, but you can go back and raise your goal as you start to see the fundraising dollars come in. Remember, you’re raising money for a cause you care about. Push yourself to raise more than you ever thought you could.
3. Remember Your WHY
There’s a reason why you are supporting this cause. Remember that and bring that same energy to your fundraising efforts. As you go about setting your fundraising goal and sending out personal appeals to your friends and family try including a personal message about why you’re supporting the cause and what the fundraising efforts mean to you. The more personal you can make it the better.
4. Form Teams
There is nothing like the camaraderie of doing an event with a group. A team will be able to raise more money faster and the team atmosphere will help foster friendly competition, inspiration, encouragement and participation. Make it a game. Teams Rock! Create one if you can.
5. Get Face to Face and Smile
When you’re fundraising make it a point to ask the friends and family you see on a regular basis to support you by donating. School events, soccer games, church, dinner parties, family reunions, etc. are all great opportunities to ask in person. Remember, it’s difficult for people to say “no” if you speak with them in person and remember to smile.
6. Make It Personal
People will donate because YOU are asking them to. Simply because they like you and respect that you’re supporting a great cause. Tell them why supporting this cause is important to you. Communicate your passion to your friends, family, co-workers and other potential donors. It’s critical to your fundraising success.
7. Send out emails
Email is fast and can return instant results. Even friends with the best intentions can easily lose or forget your email in an overcrowded “inbox.” Use emails as a follow-up to those who don’t respond the first time.
8. Follow Up
We all have busy lives with many responsibilities so it’s very common for people to put things off. If someone has indicated that they want to donate or purchase from you, but hasn’t, don’t hesitate to follow-up with a phone call or reminder email. Use a little reminder nudge, especially as the time you have to fundraise for the event runs down. People respond to deadlines!
9. Say Thank You
It’s a simple thing, but also one of the most powerful. Make sure to say thank you to everyone who supported you. Send emails, write personal notes and thank people in person. Do it every opportunity you get.
