Want to take your fundraising to the next level? Consider these additional fundraising ideas:
Use hashtags to help more friends, families and associates find your fundraiser on social media. Here are some options we love: #(yourname) #(yourpet’sname) #animalrescue #adoptlove #adoptdontshop #animallovers #animalrescue #animalwelfare #helpingpetsandpeople #makingadifference #hinsdalehumanesociety #petrescueandresourcecenter
Offer to match the donations coming in. Example: “For every gift you give, I will give $5 too up to $100!”
Offer an action for gifts. This can be serious or silly. Examples: “For every gift of $50, I’ll do 20 jumping jacks in my backyard… in shorts during the first snowfall.” OR “For every gift over $15, I’ll watch your pup for an evening out.”
Ask your donors to make gifts in honor of, in memory of, or in lieu of (a birthday or other celebration). These types of gifts are an incredible way to offer your friends and family a way to give to the places and things that matter to you.
Giving examples of what a donor’s money can do is very powerful. Use these dollar “handles” to help engage with your fundraiser.
