Online Fundraising: How to Spread the Word


Tips for Online Fundraisers

Creating a fundraising page is just the first step! The next step: Ask everyone you know to donate to your page.
Here are some tips on how to “Spread the Word”:

Send emails through your usual email account:

Email everyone in your address book. In your email, tell people why you’re fundraising.

Include the URL of your fundraising page in your email. When people receive your email, they’ll click the link, see your page, and donate.

Share on social media:

To share your fundraising page on social media:

  • View your fundraising page.
  • On the left, you’ll see icons for Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Click these icons to share your page.

Add a signature to all of your emails:

In your outgoing emails, under your name, add a “signature” line asking for donations. Example: “I’m raising funds for breast and ovarian cancer support – please donate!” Include the URL to your fundraising page.

Now, every time you send an email for any reason, the recipient will see your message. One fundraiser exceeded her goal with this simple step!
