Writing Your Online Fundraising Page
The key to a good online fundraising page is to make it personal! When people go onto your fundraising page, they are sponsoring you rather than Team Kenya (if they wanted to support us, they would donate to us directly), so your page should be about you.
Using Social Media Effectively
Social media can really help you with fundraising if you use it effectively. However, think about how often you browse through your social media and see someone asking for sponsorship – you need to post consistently and effectively if you want to maximise your sponsorship!
Raising Funds Offline
Unless you have the social media presence of Kim Kardashian, you’re unlikely to be able to reach your target just through online donations. Therefore, it is important to supplement your online fundraising by doing some offline fundraising. You may wish to organise an event, take a good old fashioned sponsor sheet around your office, or organise to pack bags in your local supermarket.
