When it comes to online fundraising, the larger your reach is the faster you can meet your fundraising goal. In this post we want to explore one of the major benefits of free online fundraising – Reaching donors from all over the world.
In the past, asking for support from countries like Canada, Australia, and the UK, were not practical. The cost of making those supporters aware and receiving the donations were just to high. Now with the help of social networking, email, and long-distance communication like Skype, out of country donors are easily reached. But, reaching your donors was not the only difficulty.
Currency exchanges and fees were a huge inconvenience in the past. Now, free online fundraising sites are able to take and process donations in many major currencies.
YouCaring.com, one of the top fundraising sites on the internet. Accepts Canadian Dollars, Euro, Pound, and Australian Dollar. This opens up a whole new amount of donors and supporters, it also allows fundraisers from those countries to create and host their own free online fundraisers. The site uses two services for processing money called WePay and PayPal, both are safe, easy, and secure ways to make donations around the globe.
