Online fundraising is quickly becoming one of the most successful forms of fundraising and there are many ways of doing it. One of those ways is through Donations off a Crowdfunding Website.
And one of the best ways to help promote your donations page is through a Fundraising Widget that supporters can download and place on their own blogs and/or websites.
Just like these widgets below...
For example if you setup a fundraiser on this excellent Crowdfunding/Fundraising website, a Fundraising Widget is automatically created for your fundraiser.
You can then encourage friends, family, colleagues, members, supporters, etc. to download the widget and to place it onto their websites.
OR if you are a Charity that uses Network For Good you can encourage supporters to create their own Charity Widgets with their Badge Creator and to choose your Charity as the beneficiary.
If you're an individual who wants to fundraise for a specific charity, you can use a Charity Widget in 2 ways...
You can either setup your own Crowdfunding
page that explains who and what you're
fundraising for. (You can actually set up your fundraiser so that funds go directly to your Charity.)
Then you or any of your supporters can use your Widget that is automatically generated when you create a campaign.
OR you can use Network For Good's Charity Badge creator that allows you to choose your favourite Charity for donations to go to.
Here are a few tips for your Charity Widget's success...
You can also customize your widget to better suite your fundraising campaign and cause!
The other type of Charity Badge is a
physical button that supporters purchase, or receive as thanks for a donation
or for supporting.
These fundraising badges are a great way of encouraging people to donate. Recognition is a huge motivating factor for people when considering supporting a cause and a Charity Button helps facilitate with this!
But then the buttons will also raise further awareness for your cause as the supporters who wear them will be broadcasting your cause wherever they go!
