Using online fundraising to raise money for a service dog is the best and easiest way to quickly gather the funds necessary to train a service dog. But, how do you set up an online fundraiser? Here are a few simple steps.
First – Pick a fundraising site which suits your needs best. We recommend choosing a site which offers great service and no charges. Check out this post featuring The Top 5 Online Fundraising Sites
Second – Do some research to figure out how much your service dog will cost. This will help you determine your fundraising goal (Remember you may have to purchase the dog, training costs, and possibly transportation costs if the schools are out of area). Then determine when you will need the money by, and use that as the date to end your fundraiser.
Third – Fill out your fundraiser description fully with just enough information to help your supporters understand your cause. Be careful not to write to much it could over whelm them, also don’t write to little because it could hinder them from giving.
Last – Add a picture that suits your cause well. It could be of the dog you are getting, or of yourself, it is important to be creative. Remember, a picture says a thousand words.
