One of the best ways to spend intimate time with the family is to invest time into raising funds for the household’s favorite charitable organization. Not only does the time go towards helping people who are in need, but it teaches the family a valuable lesson in giving.
Make giving fun. Charities love a one-time gift, but what better than to give a gift that keeps on giving. Build a fundraiser that is revolving. Make charity day a day for the family to focus upon working together to help others. Take a look at a few helpful tips that will help drum up ideas to raise money for the family’s favorite charities.
Launch a mobile objective
Get the team together to formulate a mobile fundraising campaign. Whether the funds go towards a church, school, or nonprofit organization’s initiative, the internet is a tool that cannot be overlooked.
Last year, it was estimated that nearly 20 percent of online transactions were completed using a mobile device. The percentage of mobile transactions have steadily been on the rise. Even if the family or team has already set up an interactive web presence, it should always be optimized for mobile use.
Build a strong team of people
Getting the family on the same page is one thing, but a solid donation initiative takes more than just a few bodies. Try gathering together several families from the same church or sports organization to work as one towards achieving the same goals.
Two heads are better than one, and ten are better than five. The greater amount of people who get involved will help to reach a greater or wider audience of potential givers. You could even involve some fraternity fundraising ideas or with the local school too to raise even more awareness. When one person shares the initiative on their social media profile, the message may reach 100 readers. When ten people share the initiative through their social media profile, the message could reach thousands.
Craft a compelling message
In order to draw the attention of a wide pool of potential gifters, the fundraising campaign must have a compelling and enthralling message. There must be a call to action that will power people towards giving. If the family has been raising money for more than a year, it helps to provide the public with last year’s results. Providing tangible numbers tends to draw trust and a willingness to contribute.
Conduct intermediate events
Conducting well-placed, timely events throughout the year will help generate a steady pool of interest. Have the families organize a family friendly field day event for surrounding neighborhoods.
Ask for a charitable donation at the entrance, and take whatever people are willing to give for admission. Events such as this provide the opportunity for those who are less fortunate to have a good time, and those who have extra, a chance to pay it forward.
