As few as fifteen years ago, most of us wouldn’t have considered online fundraising as an option, or thought we could be successful trying to raise money over the internet.
But as modern technology becomes more and more entwined in our everyday lives, donors are becoming much more comfortable with the idea of donating online.
That is especially helpful to nonprofit organizations today. You see, in difficult economic times, donations tend to decrease.
It is something that is being felt across the board by organizations everywhere right now. Organizing fund raising events can take a bit of an investment, and when money is tight NGOs may not even have the capital to begin organizing.
But online fundraisers can be done with little to no cash up front. For smaller organizations that often operate on shoestring budgets, this can be a huge advantage in their quest to get funding.
It is no longer necessary to let a cash shortfall keep you from doing the fundraising events necessary.
