Online Fundraising Tips

 

Online fundraising is fun, effective and easy. Here are some tips to make the most of your online fundraising!

Five steps for online fundraising success

1. Get set up Register to host a Girls' Night In now. Once you’re registered you can create your online fundraising page straight away. You can also personalise your page with photos, videos and messages to your event supporters. Let everyone know what you want to achieve and why fundraising for women’s cancers is important to you. Set a fundraising goal. Aim high! Why not kick-start your fundraising by making a donation yourself?

2. Let everyone know Login to your page at any time to send an email to everyone you know, inviting them to attend your fundriaser. Let your friends and family know that they can donate securely online at any time, even if they can’t attend your event. Get the word out even further by sharing your updates and a link to your online fundraising page on Facebook and Twitter. The more you share the more you can raise.

3. Download our mobile app Fundraise on the go with the FREE Pink Ribbon mobile app for hosts. This fun, free mobile app will allow you to receive donations and track your fundraising efforts wherever you are. To download the app, search "Pink Ribbon" in the iTunes or Android app stores.

4. Say thanks Thanking people involved makes it all worthwhile. Login to your page to send out thank you emails and let everyone know how glad you are that you have helped women like Claire Williams, one of the 50 women in Australia who are diagnosed each day with breast or a gynaecological cancer.

5. Bank your funds To bank what you’ve raised, simply login to your personal page and click on the "My Fundraising" button, go to the "Input your cash donations" tab and follow the prompts. You can also deposit funds at your local bank using your deposit slip. Bank your funds by Monday 14 November 2016 and you could win a fantastic prize!
