Don’t wait until year-end to rake in fundraising dollars.
The 5 Steps:
1. Take fundraising outside
Get your supporters involved with active events – from the traditional run/walks, community clean ups to American Ninja Warrior obstacle courses – all other ways to connect your cause with local events that create a sense of connectedness and community.
2. Launch peer-to-peer fundraising with your next event
When you couple a peer-to-peer campaign with an event, you allow those planning to attend your event, and those who can’t attend, the chance to contribute to your overall event fundraising impact or goal.
3. Partner with your community’s summer concert in the park series
Community benefit concerts in the park bring together friends, family and community service members to support local organizations while enjoying the sounds of the summer season. With summer calendars now posted online, it’s even easier to connect with local event planners and other attendees a way to give back to your organization.
4. Inspire donor generated content with a traveling social media movement
Encourage donors to take your cause on the road during the busiest travel season. Create a campaign that encourages donors to post pictures, videos and stories about how the support your organization during their vacation.
5. Work fundraising into golf vacations
Golf is one of the most popular games played during the
summer, and many golf enthusiasts even plan their summer
vacations around a golf destination.
