Tips for a successful fundraiser.
- Make sure you enter a lot of good information in the "Description" section. This is your chance to tell people why you are doing the fundraiser and why you feel it is important.
- A lot of people will have a purpose behind their fundraiser. See below for "Fundraiser Ideas."
- It helps to add a profile picture to your account. You can do this by clicking on "MY PROFILE" and then "Edit Profile (as user)."
- Give up your birthday! Ask people to donate your age in dollars instead of giving you a birthday present. Turning 20? Ask everyone to donate $20! Turning 55? $55! Everyone can do this because everyone has a birthday!
- Performance! Is your organization putting on a dance? How about a drama performance? Increase your ticket prices and tell everyone that proceeds will go to building a house!
- Hold a Campaign! Do you like to run? Ask people to donate a certain amount for every mile you run. Or maybe you like to hike? Ask them to donate per hour! Or maybe you like to make music? Upload a cover song to YouTube everytime a certain amount is donated.
