Tell your Story
In the text box that says, “Why are you raising money?”, tell your story of why you want to raise money for a particular cause the church is supporting. The more personal you make your case, the more likely people will support your fundraiser. Share if you have a timely reason for people to support your efforts, like if it’s your birthday or there is a deadline/goal.
Select a Photo
You can use our graphics for your fundraiser (save to your device first), or some other personal photo that amplifies your message.
Thank you for starting a fundraiser! Now, we have a few tips to help guarantee a successful fundraiser.
Tips for a Successful Fundraiser
- If you can, consider making the first donation, whether it’s $5 or $50. Fundraisers that already have some donation activity are more likely to spur additional donations.
- Consider writing a post on your fundraiser page to update people about its progress. This helps generate more visibility for your fundraiser on other people’s Facebook feeds.
- Share your fundraiser page link with friends who may be interested in supporting you on your birthday.
- Thank your donors!
