The good and bad ways to start fundraising

The psychology behind this is that people like to join a cause that already has some momentum because they feel like this makes it more valid. Therefore, you need to get one of your friends or family members to make the first donation in order to get the ball rolling. You should wait to publicly share your fundraiser until after you have tapped out the resources that are available from your closest friends and family. This will allow others to see that your campaign is active, and it will make them more likely to join in.


Scholarship Campaign In Honor of Jake Merrill

Our website provided Jake's friends with the perfect resource for collecting donations, and they were able to exceed their $2,000 goal by almost $200. This means that Jake's memory will be honored with the scholarship fund, and students who revere learning and the outdoors as much as Jake did will have the opportunity to walk in his educational footsteps.


Online Fundraising for the Boy Scouts of America

One of the biggest perks of using DonationTo for your online fundraising campaign is that you will receive access to a free social networking integration tool that makes it easy to spread the word. A good example of how helpful this can be is showcased in the highly successful Daja-Brown Rogers Memorial Fund. By utilizing the tools that DonationTo provided, the Brown-Rogers family was able to raise more than $18,000.


5 tips on how to create a fundraising status update on Twitter

Each tweet that you post regarding your online fundraising efforts needs to contain a clear call to action and the link to your donation website page. After all, failure to follow this basic formula will make it much more difficult for you to receive good results from this particular social media site. People are used to receiving quick bursts of information in tweets, and you can make this work for you. For example, creating a tweet for an online fundraising campaign should include a quick hook and call to action: "Help my wife beat cancer by donating today." This gets directly to the point, and it also makes it clear that you need immediate assistance from your followers. Taking this approach has been proven to provide the best results, so we heavily encourage you to utilize this information for your cause.


Crowdfunding with Google Plus & Images

Photos should be a major component of your race crowdfunding campaign, but it is important to make sure that you select images that are relevant to your cause. For example, if you will be participating in a charity run to support a local animal shelter, it will be best to post photographs of some of the shelter animals and your previous marathon experiences. Keep in mind that Google Plus allows you to include a brief message that explains each picture, and you can format that text to call attention to specific words and your fundraiser's URL. We recommend posting a new photo every day to capture attention and keep your supporters informed.


Fundraising for the ACLU

For example, the PAWS online fundraising campaign was posted by a woman who wanted to raise money for a half marathon that she is running to support a no-kill animal shelter in the Chicago area. By using the resources that DonationTo provided her, she was able to pass her goal of raising $1,000 a week early.


Crowdfunding For Medical Bills – Robbie Miotto

Robbie Miotto suffered from a devastating head trauma on February 22, 2014, and it left him in critical condition. The college student required extensive hospitalization and rehabilitation, and his family also need assistance with travel and lodging expenses so that they could be by his side during his recovery. Eleanor Poppe created a medical fundraising page to assist Robbie and his family with these expenses, and she set a goal of $10,000. To date, almost 100 people have made a donation, and more than $7,800 has been contributed to this worthy cause.
