What Types of Fundraising are Right for Your Organisation?

Narrow down the best fundraising method for your nonprofit.

 

Whether you’re just starting out or have been doing this for years, you know that your nonprofit relies on fundraising and regular donations. Perhaps you have a tried-and-true method of fundraising. Perhaps things have slowed down recently and you’re looking to kickstart the new year with more donations. Either way, you need to know what different types of fundraising work for your nonprofit. To help, we’ve rounded up a few so that you can put them to the test.

 

Host an Event

Events are fun to attend, and are relatively attractive to supporters. It’s a great way to bring in new donors and welcome them to the nonprofit. What’s more, fundraising events increase your visibility, especially if there is media awareness. They work great in email campaigns and social media strategies. Keep in mind, however, that they are resource intensive, requiring a lot of time and planning to arrange.

 

Text to Give

There are many tools available to make texting a donation possible, making it enormously popular. The ease of use makes it a great way to receive regular donations, and almost everyone has access to a phone.

 

Silent Auction

This kind of fundraiser works well with events like tournaments, festivals, or cocktail parties as guests are moving around and doing their own thing. They can be easily organized but just as easily ignored, which is why it’s important that there is encouragement and monitoring.

 

Email Campaigns

This is one of the most effective fundraising methods out there. It’s inexpensive, automated, and tailored to your needs. There are many software products that can easily automate this for you and make it a major part of your fundraising strategy. Be aware, however, that most people’s inboxes are already pretty crowded, so keep your message short and simple.
