Strategies to Get More Donations for Your Nonprofit

Help your cause by improving donations.

Even though generating donations for your nonprofit can seem like a never-ending battle, there are ways to make it easier. The Internet has changed the face of fundraising, and more and more people are giving to donations online. It is crucial that your nonprofit can step up to the task of adopting these strategies to help receive more donations.

Make your website mobile friendly. If users can’t’ access your website on their mobile device or if they do and it’s hard to navigate, they’ll likely click off it. The percentage of users accessing the Internet through mobile devices has soared in the last few years, and it’s expected to continue to rise. Check that your website and donation home page can be easily accessed on a mobile device.

Ask for specific amounts.

The human mind needs to be told what to do. Don’t simply say “Please donate” as people won’t know what to do or how much to give. Instead, say, “Please donate $50 – your donation will provide….” It’s a good idea to have varied levels of donation, clearly associated with the benefits they provide to those you serve.

Create great content.

People love to read a good story – so make an emotive piece and publish it on your website and social media. People will react to sad, inspiring, hopeful, and happy tales relating to your cause. Show the journey of the impact one donation can make in an inspiring way, and people will line up to make that transformation go further.

Say thank you.

Never underestimate the power of these two words! If you want donors to come back again and again, show your appreciation. From shout-outs on social media to sending handwritten letters, you can make donors feel a part of the team’s success.
