If you want to set up an online donations site, you may be confused with the amount of options you have.
However, it doesn't need to be that complicated. These simple steps will get you ready to accept online donations in minutes:
1. Use one of the donation websites mentioned on our homepage.
2. Follow the instructions given by that particular site. If you've chosen one of our recommended sites, it should be easy to follow.
3. Share your fundraiser with those that you think will donate to you. If your cause is not private, also get your extended network to talk and share your fundraiser.
4. Do what you had planned to do once you've raised the money you need and show proof to those that donated. That will help you build credibility and it will increase the chances of getting further donations from these people if needed in the future.
Creating an effective online fundraising campaign isn’t difficult, but it does help if you take a little extra time for forethought and planning.
The first thing you need to decide on is exactly what you need the money for and what your fundraising goal will be. For example, if you’re raising money to help your child’s class, it helps if you can say specifically what the money will be used for and exactly how much money you need.
It can also be a good idea to break a very large goal up into a few smaller ones. People aren’t interested in donating money to a goal that isn’t clear, so instead of vaguely saying that you’re raising money for Suzy’s class, you’ll be more successful if you say that you’re raising money to cover transportation costs of the field trip to the zoo.
Having a clear monetary goal is one of the most important keys to convincing people to donate.
