It is also starting point for a Fundraise with Facebook campaign to help you really get the word out to your network of contacts.
- Send emails and mail personal letters. Use a combination of emails and personal letters for your donation requests. Your online Participant Center allows you to email your donors and will return instant results, but sending a good old-fashioned hand written letter to certain donors shows a personal touch.
- Follow Up. It’s very common for people to put things off. We all live busy lives. A little reminder never hurt anyone. Don’t hesitate to follow-up with a phone call or reminder email. People want to support you they just need to be asked.
- Remember Your Inspiration. There’s a reason why you are supporting this cause. Make sure to bring that same energy to your fundraising efforts. The more personal you can make it the better!
