Running a non-profit organization requires a lot of work and planning. You need to recruit, train and utilize volunteers, organize fundraisers and manage the daily operations of your not-for-profit organization. When it comes to fundraising ideas, you don’t want to be stuck doing the same candy fundraisers so common with schools and clubs. You need fresh and exciting fundraising programs if you want to attract donors and expand your reach.
One of the most common limitations for the growth of non-profit companies is the number of charitable donations they receive in any given fiscal year or quarter. Relying on the same corporate donors or in-person donations will continue to keep your charitable organization from real growth. You need to consider how online fundraising could give you the boost you need.
Since the explosion in popularity of social media in the last decade, people across the country have begun conducting more and more business online. That includes finding, researching and donating to charities and non-profit organizations. Individual users sharing donation pages and information about donation drives can help nonprofits reach new donors and increase their budgets.
Just like with shopping, the modern consumer expects near-instant gratification when it comes to giving to charities. You have an opportunity when an interested person clicks on your website or a post you shared on social media. In order to capitalize on that opportunity, you need to make donating as convenient as possible. Creating a simple, secure online fundraising system can help drive new donations and convert more followers and visitors into donors.
