GoGetFunding Newsletter – February 2017

Message from Sandip (CEO)

February has been an exciting month for us at GoGetFunding. We began rolling out our new ‘GoGetFunding Global’ payment option and are heartened to see so many people who were previously unable to crowdfund, already raising funds with this feature.

Watch out for more great features coming over the next 12 months!

Features, Updates & News!

GoGetFunding Card Payment Service Goes ‘Global’

GoGetFunding is constantly exploring different ways it can improve its features and service to its existing users, this includes investigating and trialing different ways in which it can increase accessibility to those who may struggle to gain funding due to restrictions in their country or personal circumstance.

After considerable research, testing and feedback we were delighted to be able to launch GoGetFunding Global earlier this month.

The arrival of GoGetFunding Global means that fundraisers in 14 countries, who were either previously unable to use our site (and many other crowdfunding platforms), or had limitations with it’s use, are now able to. Those countries include:

Ukraine, India, Hungary, Phillipines, Ghana, Kenya, Turkey, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, China, Serbia, Russia, Thailand, Vietnam

If you would like to learn more about this new feature and how it can help you raise funds in one of these countries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our customer support team who will be more than happy to answer any queries you may have.

Timely Fundraising Ideas for YOU:

Time for a Spring clean

Spring is a time when houses everywhere are having a spring clean. Harness that and organise a fundraising event such as a bootsale or jumble sale.

These types of events cost almost nothing to set up, and can be a real money-spinner for your cause.

 

 

 

Get your pets involved

If you’re an animal lover and want to organise an event to raise funds for a local animal charity, events such as dog shows, sponsored dog walking, fancy dress and photography competitions are incredibly popular and likely to be supported by local newspapers and radio stations.
