CUSTOMIZE AND PERSONALIZE YOUR PAGE

Your personal webpage is your chance to customize your fundraising message to your family, friends, and other donors. Generally speaking, people contribute to your cause based on the personal message you convey. Therefore, it is important to spend time customizing your ActiveGiving page.

• Include a Message

• Upload Images

• Pick a Template to best match you logo

• Use Colors to personalize your page

Second Step:

PROMOTE THE AVAILABILITY OF YOUR DONATION PAGE

Make sure people realize how easy it is to donate online. Your webpage and emails give people an immediate link to donating. They won’t have to fill out a form, copy down postage information, or write a check. They also automatically receive a confirmation email with tax deduction information.

Tip: Once you’ve logged in to your ActiveGiving account, click the ‘Invite others to donate’ link to send and save emails to your contacts  [Click here for Fundraising Check List]

 Step Three:

HAVE A PLAN, AND STICK TO IT

Step Four:

Simple things you can do that make a big difference!

Place your fundraising link on your signature line in your e-mail. This way with no extra effort at all, every e-mail you send is another opportunity to fundraise and spread the word about your cause!  [Click Here for Email Campaign Tips]

 Post your Fundraising Link on a tear away flyer up in the break room at work with a picture connected to the cause. Your co-workers can tear off your web address and go back to their desks to check out your efforts as well as donate to your cause.

• Use Twitter and / or Facebook to ask your friends, add the link in Facebook to make it easy for your friends.

• Are you a Blogger, keep your blog updated with your Fundraising link.
