Increase your chances for success with a Mixed Bag Designs Fundraiser. We have helped schools and nonprofits raise over $70 million. To help ensure your next fundraiser is a winner, we have compiled 6 Steps to Fundraising Success.
1. Remember to Share the Details
Always share your fundraiser goals, how the funds will be used, important dates and your fundraiser ID. Start by figuring out the purpose of your fundraiser. Help your network take the next step, include a call-to-action such as “click here to shop now” or “help spread the word.” Many fundraisers have more than one goal, but figuring out the details will depend on knowing what you are trying to achieve.
2. Set Goals for Personalized Emails
Email is the most effective way of asking friends, family, and colleagues to support your fundraiser. Ask participants to text or email at least 5-10 contacts and to follow up often. Clear goals will keep everyone on track. After you know what you are raising money for, decide who your target audience is and emphasize who your fundraiser will benefit. Make sure to set timelines to ensure your accomplish your goals on time and allow participants to set their own goals to instill motivation.
