To help you achieve this goal, we have put together a list of four quick email tips to help you encourage people to donate online.
1.) Create an Email Schedule
If you are learning how to fundraise, you might not have a full appreciation for how important it is to stay in regular contact with your potential donors. However, if you simply send one email and hope for the best, you are not likely to have a fully funded online fundraising campaign. Consider for example how often you have received multiple emails on a specific topic before you have taken action. Your best course of action is to send out weekly updates about your cause to keep your donors constantly engaged. By doing this, it will be much easier to raise money online.

2.) Leverage all Email Methods
One of the best ways to get people to support your fundraising ideas is to reach out to them via multiple different communication methods. For example, if you have a personal and work email address for a potential donor, you should send a message to both addresses. By doing this, you greatly increase the odds that they will actually read the message and decide to donate online.
3.) Leverage all of Your Email Contacts
Whether your supporters have a professional email address or an account that is hosted by Yahoo, Gmail or Hotmail, it is essential to send them a message on a weekly basis, and you should also go through all of your email contacts and reach out to them as well. Consider for example how many contacts you have sitting within your personal email account. Even if most of them do not respond, you are still going to spread the word about your fundraiser, and you are also likely to receive donations from unexpected sources.
4.) Ask Your Supporters to Forward Your Emails
If you can create a viral email campaign, you will have a much better chance of hitting your fundraising goal. Therefore, you should ask all of your supporters to forward your emails to their entire contact list. Consider how many times you have received a forwarded email from a friend or co-worker that caused you to take action. By spreading the word about your cause, you will definitely end up with better results.
With DonationTo, you will receive 100 percent of the money that you raise so that you can hit your fundraising goals more easily. One of the fastest ways to spread the word about your cause is by leveraging all of your email contacts and asking your supporters to forward your emails. By using our four simple email tips, you will be able to easily increase your donations even if you are still in the process of learning how to fundraise.
