4 tips to take your online fundraising game to the next level
In 2021, large and small scale non-profits must constantly innovate to stay ahead of the digital fundraising curve.
How can we make our campaign stand out?
Which tool will help us raise the most funds?
Do we even have a budget for digital fundraising?
When you partner with Rafflebox, we become an extension of your fundraising team and can answer these questions for you. We’ve helped more than 10,000 charities, non-profits and sports teams create and manage their own online 50/50s and prize raffles. Fundraising professionals, volunteers and coaches alike are empowered to raise more funds for their worthy causes with our easy-to-use platform with no start-up fees (for real, we won’t even take your credit card).
Consider starting a Rafflebox and our team will help you level up your online fundraising game with best practices like these.
1. Incentivize your fundraising team
Your employees or team members are the best advocates for the important work you do; consider asking for their participation in your fundraiser if your raffle rules permit. Consider creating a contest within your team to see who can raise the most funds. Use the Rafflebox “In support of” feature to track individual ticket sales and generate friendly competition.
2. Align with corporate partners
For-profit organizations often seek opportunities to make a difference in their communities and aligning with your worthy cause may be mutually-beneficial. Sponsors could help support your fundraiser by donating funds to your jackpot or a prize for your raffle.
Matching gifts are a popular form of corporate giving. Taking part in a gift-matching program essentially doubles the funds you raise without double the work! This is a win-win situation for everyone involved — your organization, the sponsor and the community.
3. Create a recurring tradition
Maybe you hosted a holiday themed raffle, or a raffle for your in-person event. Once you’ve hosted a success raffle — why not recreate it? That’s the idea behind most walk-a-thons and other annual events. Non-profits that document their processes and lessons-learned are able to replicate successful fundraisers and foster legacy campaigns for years to come.
4. Try something new!
Testing new digital marketing tools can be intimidating but, with Rafflebox, there are no upfront fees and your dedicated Rafflebox account manager will guide you through step-by-step! Consider adding a 50/50 or prize raffle to an existing event or fundraising campaign to raise more funds and create opportunities to attract new donors and sponsors to your worthy cause.
