In this article, we discuss ten great ways that you can raise funds virtually that are still engaging and exciting for potential donors.
No matter which virtual fundraising idea you choose (and you should ideally choose more than one), the best way to maximize the effectiveness of your campaign is to collect contact info as often as possible. If people sign up for a watch party or virtual concert? Collect their emails. If they enter into a raffle? Try to get addresses, phone numbers, and emails. This gives you the chance to reach out to each donor, connect with them, and ask for a further donation.
If people are willing to give once, they’re likely to give again- especially if their second gift can help your campaign cross the finish line! So, no matter what you do, make sure you collect as much contact info as you can- it’ll give you a second, third, and fourth chance to secure donations for your campaign!
It seems that, with every passing year, society trends more toward the digital. If you want to raise money for a health expense, a charitable cause, or any other reason, try these virtual fundraising strategies for more success. Use the ideas we shared for inspiration, but don’t be afraid to come up with strategies of your own, too!
