How to Mobilize Supporters to Fundraise for You

The success of your fundraising campaign hinges on effective methods of sharing. Without actively telling your supporters to go to your campaign page and take an action, your campaign will not generate the traffic, donations, or fundraising that you need to be successful.

You’re in luck. GoFundMe Charity provides you with the tools to help you be successful in getting the word out, including inviting team members, social sharing, email customization, and a mobile-friendly platform for sharing on-the-go. In this webinar, you'll learn tactics to spread the word and mobilize your supporters to not only make a donation, but to fundraise for you!

What you’ll learn:
Best practices for recruiting fundraisers for your campaign;
How to invite team members directly from your GoFundMe Charity campaign;
How to share on social media to reach new audiences and expand your fundraiser base;
How to communicate with and support your fundraisers during the campaign.

Crowdfunding is done online, often with social networks, which make it easy for supporters to share a cause or project with their networks. Organizations, businesses, and individuals alike can use crowdfunding for any type of project, for example: charitable cause; creative project; business startup; school tuition; or personal expenses.

Some of the emails you can customize: Donation Receipt: All donors get a tax deductible receipt and you can add your contact information Thank you email: A personalized thank you note to donors. Join the team: Edit this to provide strategic tips for fundraisers, to get them excited and motivated and thank them, to give them your contact information for help. Emails to encourage your fundraisers to continue with the campaign if they haven’t set a goal or haven’t raised any money (these emails automatically go out one week after someone creates a campaign for you). @JULIACSOCIAL @GOFUNDMECHARITY
  33. 33. HOW TO SEND INVITES TO FUNDRASIERS If you’re contacting your network via social media or email, simply send them your direct campaign link and ask them to click the Join the Team button. This will prompt them to create their own campaigns which will be directly linked to yours. @JULIACSOCIAL @GOFUNDMECHARITY
  34. 34. HOW TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO MOBILIZE SUPPORTERS Encourage your supporters to share on your behalf. This enables your message and campaign to go even further across social networks. Vary your social media content across the platforms that you use. What works on Instagram may not necessarily work on LinkedIn, etc. Photo and video are the leading forms of content on social media in terms of engagement. @JULIACSOCIAL @GOFUNDMECHARITY
  35. 35. HOW TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO MOBILIZE SUPPORTERS In your social media content, always include the direct URL to your campaign with a clear and concise call to donate, or to start a fundraiser. Don’t just ask for money in each update. Give updates on your progress, share stories, provide data on the problem. @JULIACSOCIAL @GOFUNDMECHARITY
  38. 38. TIPS FOR USING THE CAMPAIGN UPDATE TOOL Using the Campaign Update tool at strategic times during your campaign (such as halfway or close-to goal) helps generate excitement and a sense of urgency in your donors. Use photos to convey impact. Snap a live video of your work in the field (where possible). Send it out to everyone that donated to demonstrate impact. Announce stretch goals. Thank people for donating, and ask them to consider starting their own fundraiser! @JULIACSOCIAL @GOFUNDMECHARITY

  41. 41. ACTIVITY FEED The Activity Feed displays donations in chronological order and fundraising milestones (e.g Campaign created, 50% to goal, etc). Beside the Activity Feed, you have 1-2 additional tabs that display all Fundraisers (individuals fundraising on your campaign) and/or Teams (groups of individuals fundraising on your campaign, if you have Multiple Teams enabled). @JULIACSOCIAL @GOFUNDMECHARITY
  42. 42. THREE WAYS TO DRIVE DONATIONS 1) Your nonprofit drives people to make one-time donations on the campaign page. 2) Individuals can raise money for you by asking their friends and family. They are called Fundraisers. 3) Multiple fundraisers can join together as a Team. Multi-team campaigns are great for: Allowing families, relay teams, or tables in a gala to fundraise together. Promoting peer-to-peer fundraising with a customized landing page. Chapters of an organization under an umbrella page. @JULIACSOCIAL @GOFUNDMECHARITY
  43. 43. TOOLS FOR MANAGING YOUR FUNDRAISERS If you click on a Fundraiser, a menu will appear that allows you to take additional actions for this individual.

  44. 44. TOOLS FOR MANAGING YOUR TEAMS Toggle to the Teams tab (this is available if you have Multiple Teams enabled from your Campaign Editor).

  46. 46. KEEP IN CONTACT WITH YOUR FUNDRAISERS Provide updates on the total campaign and progress. Give them tools and content like graphics, photos, videos to share with their network. Be accessible for those who need help with their campaign. Who can they call and email? @JULIACSOCIAL @GOFUNDMECHARITY
  47. 47. CELEBRATE YOUR FUNDRAISERS Your fundraisers have put themselves out there and done one of the hardest things there is to do – raise money!
