Increase Fundraising How To Ask For Help
Once you reach supporters that are responsive and motivated, they are usually happy to introduce you to additional supporters, so don’t be afraid to ask them for help finding additional supporters!
A good place to start is asking them to reach out to their social network to raise awareness. Asking for something specific makes people much more likely to help, so start by asking supporters to tweet about your cause, mention it in Facebook status updates, or forward emails to their friends, family, and colleagues. If any of your supporters blog, ask them if they would mind writing a short post summarizing their support.
When thinking of who to reach out to, remember to keep it relevant. For example, if you’re raising money for an animal shelter, reaching out to animal blogs would be a good idea, but deep sea fishing blogs might not be the best use of your time.
Although there’s no shame in asking for help, you should be careful to avoid being overbearing. If a supporter doesn’t seem interested in spreading the word, just move on, and whatever you do, don’t be pushy.
In conclusion, the value of support goes far beyond a monetary contribution. Don’t just ask your supporters for money, ask them for…well, support! The learn more about creating your own fundraising page visit: www.DonationTo.com
