Inspire your donors by sharing your story

Inspire your donors by sharing your story. There is a reason why you decided to open a nonprofit. A story that perhaps you are a bit uncomfortable to share. Raising money is about connecting with people. People understand who you are and what you stand for by your actions. There is nothing more motivating for a donor than an authentic inspirational story.

One organization leader shared her very moving personal story with crowds of people she had never met before. Her story was very emotional. She recalled being a 14-year-old girl who witnessed first hand a terrorist bombing in Israel. She described how she ran down to the burning bus where people were screaming for their lives however she is held back because of her age.

Later in life, she went on to share her story with as many people as possible

Later in life, she went on to share her story with as many people as possible. She described in full detail the pain and suffering and the magnitude of the injustice. Her story was coming directly from the heart and went directly into the donor’s hearts.

She made a compelling argument to the donors of what a crime it is to sit by and do nothing when men woman and children are crying for help. She proclaimed that one must be proud of having the ability to help. The authenticity of the mission and the positive outlook completely resonated with the potential donors. Those donors over years became friends and those friends brought in new friends.

The cause is extremely worthwhile and the assortment of prizes is really great.

Donors are free to buy as many tickets as they want in the virtual fishbowl.

Donors are free to buy as many tickets as they want in the virtual fishbowl. At the close of the auction period, the winning ticket for each auction item is then drawn from the corresponding bowl.

Obviously, the more tickets a person deposits in the bowl, the higher the percentage chance that they’ll win the item. That means that highly desirable items will draw a lot of tickets, just as they would draw a lot of bids in a regular Chinese auction.

There is no doubt about it during COVID -19 nonprofits have to use some ingenuity to get by.
