Do you know how your organization could strengthen fundraising with social media? Why not check out practical possibilities that are effective and budget friendly. Here’s some examples of how to use social media to strengthen your current fundraising practice beyond a credit card form on your web site.
Strengthen Social Media for Events
Add a web page to your spring walk or run that gives power to your sponsors and supporters. Let them create a web page to tell their story of support for your organization with photos, videos and content. Set a donation goal and raise funds before, during and after the event to a specified date. Create competition across the teams with a prize and include social media recognition.
Keep individual ticket sales and donations in your process. Add the request to your sponsors to build community awareness. With personally designed web pages for each sponsor, you make it easy for them to drive engagement from their employees. And employees can share with family and friends the event through their favorite social media channels right from the sponsor web page. It’s a personal appeal, not a form.
On the event day, attendees can use their mobile devices to buy tickets and donate to raise additional funds for a favorite team. You make it easy to give.
Strengthen Social Media for Galas
Table sponsors are committed. But why not multiply their impact? Set a fundraising goal for the table and let the host and invited attendees spread the message on social media with a personalized web page. Supporters who can’t attend can still give to the cause and be part of the total dollars raised. Highlight their support on your web page.
At the gala, use a mobile phone appeal to collect additional donations after the speaker engages the audience.
