It’s time to get excited about crowdfunding!

It’s time to get excited about crowdfunding! No one likes to leave their comfort zones. Since this pandemic has hit we have had all the excuses in the world to wait. Wait for a vaccine, wait for a new President, and wait for a new year.

For us to survive, we are going to have to venture out of our comfort zones and into new and unchartered terrain. For many nonprofits coming up with fundraising, our annual budget depended on repeating past methods of success. Some relied heavily on Government grants others on their board members and for some others, it might have been their annual fundraising banquet.

Here we are another day has gone by and we haven’t left our comfort zone in search of new solutions to raise money for the important work we do.

Here we are another day has gone by and we haven’t left our comfort zone in search of new solutions to raise money for the important work we do. The reason why we haven’t yet pivoted is that we are afraid of failure. We are afraid of new and different. Our brains have been programmed to stay away from failure and only go down paths that are known to us.

We can’t stand the thought of our coworkers making some negative comments confirming our biggest fears that the project was a big flunk.

Another common excuse is that we just don’t have the time to learn how to crowdfund.

Crowdfunding For Nonprofits Made Easy.

Crowdfunding for nonprofit’s made easy. This resource page will help your nonprofit with a few great fundraising ideas and free software to help you. We understand how difficult it is for nonprofits to keep up with all the new technology in online fundraising.

Our first idea for crowdfunding for you today is an online auction.

Our first idea for crowdfunding for you today is an online auction. Nonprofits can reach out to their donors for donations of unique items that can generate more money in an online auction then they ever thought possible.

Online auctions have become very popular during COVID 19

Online auctions have become very popular during COVID 19. The process is rather simple and there is a great software for nonprofits to help them. The leading site for nonprofits is called https://www.biddingowl.com/

Another new reality for nonprofits is integrating online fundraising and offline fundraising into the same software. Just imagine one Sunday afternoon you bump into one of your charity supporters at a community event. The donor is in a jolly mood and he says “how much did I give last year to your charity? I am thinking about doubling it”!

Back in the day you would have said well I am not sure I will check when I get into the office and get back to you. Not anymore today there is a very good software that will help you from your smartphone.

The software integrates all different types of donations including crowdfunding online donations. Keeping track of your donors has never been easier.

We recommend a website called http://www.donortools.com to help your nonprofit.

Text Fundraising has also shown signs of potential for nonprofits.

Text Fundraising has also shown signs of potential for nonprofits. A few years back an organization that I coached raised fifty thousand dollars using a text fundraising App. The organization located in Manchester England held a concert with a famous singer.

They placed a massive screen behind the stage. The organization prompted the crowd of donors to text in their donation amounts throughout the night. While the singing and cheer filled the hall. Donors competed with each other to be the highest donation on the massive screen!

We recommend a software called https://www.qgiv.com for your next text fundraising event.

Crowdfunding for nonprofits is much easier when you have someone to talk to and can advise you along the way. At Youhelp.com we really care for our clients. Being a boutique platform we can afford to give your nonprofit the customization you need for a crowdfunding campaign.
