While the impact of a single individual fundraising is powerful, the impact of a group of fundraisers can be game-changing. Some of the most successful campaigns on CrowdRise adopt a team-fundraising model. See below for our three best tips on recruiting fundraisers for your next campaign:
- Ask your biggest supporters first - Think of your supporters that are most invested in your mission. These could be big donors, board members, returning event participants or your employees.
- Ask well - The initial idea of asking individuals to fundraise on your behalf may seem daunting, both to you and them. Make sure you include excellent reasons why their help is crucial to your success and how their efforts go the extra mile in propelling your cause forward.
- Provide Support - Fundraising is not always easy. That’s why it’s important to keep the lines of communication open between you and your fundraisers before, during and after your campaign. Prepare materials for your fundraisers such as how-to guides, sample messaging or engagement toolkits to make it as easy as possible for them to raise money.
