When it comes to fundraising, it is important to spread the word about your event so that you get a good turn out. Here are some fundraising ideas to help you reach an audience and make the most of your event.
Word of Mouth
People often times forget about the most basic form of sharing information: word of mouth. Talk to family members, friends, and people in your community or at your work place about your fundraiser; hey may continue to spread the word. People need to know your story to care, so telling people face-to-face gives you a chance to connect with them.
The local news is always looking for a great new story, so share yours! Reach out to local newspapers, radio stations, and news channels to advertise your event. People love to support their community, especially when it comes to school fundraisers or church fundraisers. The local news will get your story out to people in your community who would be willing to show their support.
The best outlet to reach the largest group of people is through social media. Fundraising on social media is becoming huge, so post your fundraiser on every platform you can Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest are all great outlets to share your story.
