Every day fundraisers go off without a hitch; meeting their
goals and realizing their cause. We’ve seen it done successfully hundreds, if
not thousands, of times, but what about the fundraisers that didn’t reach their
goals? What do the successful fundraisers know that these didn’t?
Well, take a look and find out for yourself. This list
reveals the secrets that the most successful fundraisers use to grab the
attention of their donors and keep them giving over and over again.
- To have a successful fundraiser, you have
to know your campaign inside and out. You have to know exactly what your
raising funds for, why it’s important, what materials you need in advance, the
scheduling of your campaign, etc. This step is your opportunity to plan ahead
and ensure that you have all the information and resources you need to be
prepared throughout the course of the entire campaign.
- Once you have your fundraiser planned out
top-to-bottom, you absolutely have to know who your donors will be. Fundraising
is more than just blindly throwing out a request for funding. It’s calculated
and direct. Not everybody is going to want to donate, which makes it extremely
important to direct your communications to only the people that will be
Them a Reason to Give
- Alright, so you know your campaign like the
back of your hand and you know who you’re trying to get donations from. The
next step is to incentivize. Give your donors a reason to give that’s more than
just that warm, fuzzy feeling. Give them a product that displays their
generosity or an event that celebrates their donations; anything that makes
them feel like the donation they made was recognized and appreciated.
- Get the word out there. It’s incredible to
see the difference that promoting your fundraiser has. Use advertising
materials and media resources to communicate your cause to your target donors.
We’re talking about flyers, pamphlets, emails, social media, even radio and
television commercials. Wherever your target donors are, that’s where you want
Stop After a Donation
- Just because you receive a donation doesn’t
mean you’re done. Use your donors contact information to continue reaching out
to them and keep them informed about the progress of your cause. The trick is
to really make the donor feel like they are a valuable part of your cause. Make
them excited about it. Once they’re in you may have a donor for life. Reach out
to them again on your next cause and causes that you support.
