Crowdfunding goals for nonprofit startups are different than raising money for a well-established organization. Your unique situation allows for several crowdfunding goals. Raising money is very important for a new organization, however, it’s only one of the important crowdfunding goals for a startup.
Crowdfunding as a start-up nonprofit is a great way to raise awareness in your online community
Crowdfunding as a start-up nonprofit is a great way to raise awareness in your online community. Crowdfunding gives a storyline for people to follow. For instance, let’s say that your nonprofit helps battered women. The subject of domestic violence may be a well-known subject. However, as a subject, it sits at an emotional distance from the average potential donor. When a nonprofit puts a face to the case, the need becomes instantly animated. Potential donors now hear emotional testimony from a victim that lives in close proximity.
Creating engaging content with tips as you post the campaign page educates community members on how they can take a proactive role in helping others with the same issues. In this specific example, the charity can educate the public on how to detect signs of domestic abuse while raising funds online.
Promoting your YouHelp.com campaign on your Facebook.com and Twitter pages are a fantastic way to start building your organization’s name recognition. Many potential donors may be skeptical when new hearing about your initiative. They may question the need and claim that there are already other nonprofits doing what you are doing. Launching a focused campaign for a specific case immediately gives answers to these critics.
There is another crowdfunding campaign advantage as a startup. Bringing awareness to the problem gives an opportunity for new people to volunteer for your cause. It could very well be that your cause resonates deeply with certain people in your online neighborhood. Besides making a donation but may be willing to dedicate time to assist you with your efforts.
As you move forward with your campaign make sure to set mini-goals with feasible milestones.
