Online Fundraising: There’s Power in Numbers


Tips for Online Fundraisers

You don’t need to ask for large donations. You can ask a lot of people for small donations. Remember: A lot of small donations add up to make a big difference in many lives!
Fundraising is easy when you think about all the different people you can reach out to. Here are some tips to increase your fundraising using the “Power of Numbers.”

Five easy steps to raise $500

  1. Donate $50 to your own page.
  2. Ask 2 family members to donate $50.
  3. Ask 10 friends to donate $20.
  4. Ask 2 stores or businesses that you patronize to donate $50.
  5. Ask your boss for a company donation of $50.

You did it! You raised $500!

Five more steps to reach $1000
