4 Types Of Fundraising Every Organisation Can Consider

When it comes to choosing a fundraiser, organisations cannot easily make up their minds because of the options to choose from. Even for beginners, the chances for success is still high. You just need to choose the type of fundraiser that will cater to the audience you are trying to target. 

1. Host a fundraising event

There are many ways you can get potential donors together in one venue and one of which is by hosting an event such as a golf tournament, 5k and gala. Aside from creating a memorable experience, you will also bring awareness. Events must be carefully planned with a purpose. 

2. Online donation

Organising an event does not have to happen in a specific venue because asking donations can also be done online. However, this type of fundraising is not as simple as creating a website and expecting people to click the 'donate' button and voila! instant donation. You will need to tell a story and toss a number to get the transaction processed. You can set up an online registration and also add an option to donate on the website. The donation page should give donors the option to make a donation upgrade.

3. Crowdfunding

Speaking of online donation, leaders can also encourage supporters to create a page that they can share with their friends and family. Crowdfundraisers can either stand alone on their own or they can also be paired with a fundraising event. Supporters will be the ones to spearhead the event making sure that all networks are used to maximise the effectiveness of this type of fundraiser. 

4. Auction

A silent auction can also complement an existing event. Donations can be obtained from purchasing tickets. You will also have the option to have any number of items available for auction. This technique will boost the donations and attract potential donors. 

You can also mix any of these types of fundraising to boost your efforts. If you have many supporters, it is possible to incorporate at least 2 or three fundraisers. It is also important to note that organising an event must also be coupled with commitment and hard work.
