How To Get Donations Online Fundraising - Tip 1

Crowdfunding is a rapidly-growing tool for individuals, small companies and philanthropic organizations to access the money they need to reach their financial goals. The landscape is shifting so rapidly, in fact, that from 2011 to 2013 alone, the estimated volume of overall funds raised through online crowdfunding skyrocketed from 1.1 billion to 5.3 billion, and the industry continues to grow. It’s a hugely transformative method of investment and giving.

How To Get Donations Online Fundraising - Tip 2

The fastest-growing form of crowdfunding is for investors looking to profit off of a creative idea. But nearly all sites, even those that purport to be philanthropic in nature, charge some fee for their services. Over 40% of crowdfunding sites survive by taking a cut of the money raised through their platform. Here at YouCaring, we’re committed to free, humanitarian crowdfunding and will never take a portion of your donations. That’s compassionate crowdfunding.

How To Get Donations Online - Tip 3

In addition to its effectiveness, crowdfunding also eases the social pressure of traditional fundraising campaigns. Instead of calling twenty friends and asking them for money, which is both awkward and inefficient, you can send as many contacts as you like one easy, accessible link. There they can view your updates, photos, and videos on their own time, stay up-to-speed on what’s going on in your life, and make what contribution they can afford.
