Expand Your Giving Window With Mobile Fundraising

Why limit your supporters to only giving during your event? With mobile fundraising, you can open yourself up to receiving donations all day, every day.

Build Anticipation For Your Fundraiser

In the months leading up to your fundraising event, you and your team put a lot of effort into preparations. All of that hard work will eventually result in an engaging and successful fundraiser. But why wait until the day of your charity event to start raising money? With mobile fundraising, you can get started early.

While you are spreading the word about your upcoming fundraiser, let your supporters know about your mobile fundraising app. Educate them on how to download the app and make a mobile donation. Not only will you prepare attendees for giving at the event, but you will likely see donations roll in early.

Mobile Fundraising After Your Event Ends

Giving to your cause does not have to stop when your fundraiser is over. Even after your supporters head home and return to their busy schedules, they will still have your mobile fundraising app downloaded onto their devices. That means they can give to your cause again, any time they choose.

They don’t have to be anywhere near your event or offices. They don’t have to spend a lot of time researching how to make a donation to your organization. Your supporters can simply pull out their phones, locate your organization in the app, and give any amount they choose. It’s quick, easy, and convenient.

Allow Absent Supporters To Get Involved

Now you understand how mobile fundraising can create a wider window of time to accept nonprofit donations. But what about the physical constraints that sometimes keep people from giving? Can mobile fundraising help you broaden your spacial giving window, too?

Absolutely. By offering a mobile option, you open up your potential donor base to not only those who attend your event, but also those who can’t make it in person. Before, during, and after the fundraiser, use social media and your email newsletter to let your absent supporters get involved from afar.
