Breaking Down Barriers
26 October 2016
We know that it can sometimes be awkward, embarrassing or daunting to ask potential donors to donate, so we’ve got you covered with these tips.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it!
Make sure your fundraising project features on your website! The more your community is exposed to your story and goal, the more it will resonate with them. We’ve created a collection of website button styles for you to use and promote your project with. Click here to choose your button.
A quick, easy and efficient way to ask for donations is by sending a bulk email and we’ve done the legwork and created a template for you! Use your club database of email contacts, alongside any other campaigns or as a standalone piece, and hit send. Click here to access the email template then just copy, paste, and fill in the blanks!
Share your meaningful story on social media and urge your donors to do the same. The more likes and shares your post has, the more reach your campaign will get, and the more potential donors will be able to see your story.
Showcase the benefits
Whether it’s a new clubhouse, team rooms, upgraded lighting, sports equipment, team travel or the need to boost participation numbers, be clear about your fundraising goals and what they mean for your club or organisation. Our deductible gift recipient (DGR) status enables donations of $2 or more to be tax deductible so make sure your donors know that they can benefit and claim tax deductions for their support.
