Ways to Enhance your Fundraising Page
So you've created a GiveForward page, now what?! Your fundraising coach will soon be reaching out with advice on how to promote your fundraiser. In the meantime, here are some tips to utilize all the great features GiveForward has to make your page look like the cat's pajamas!
1. Make your page look as spiffy as possible by adding some smiling and happy photos. Telling a story about the person you are raising funds for through photos is a great way for potential supporters to connect with your fundraiser. You can add as many photos as you'd like under the "photos and video" tab of your dashboard.
2. Tell your story! Under the "details" tab of your Dashboard (get there by clicking on your name after you've logged in, then My Pages, then Edit Fundraiser), you are able to expand on why you are raising funds and how they will be used in the long description. You are able to write as much as you'd like in this section! Potential donors like to know where their funds are going and how their donation will impact the person receiving the funds.
3. Make sure your goal amount and end date are to your liking. In the "details" tab, you are able to set up your end date - your fundraiser will remain open and active until this date, regardless of falling short or surpassing your goal. The Team Captain is able to edit this information at any time during the fundraiser. Also, don't forget to add an automatic thank you message in this section! Once a gift is made, a pop up will appear with your thank you note that you can customize to send your love and thanks for the support.
