A crowdfunding fundraiser is asking people to donate money for a specific cause or project. Crowdfunding is useful for a variety of opportunities, whether fundraising for disaster-relief, medical bills, a new church sanctuary, creative projects, school band uniforms, creating a salable product, or creating a start-up. Crowdfunding fundraising platforms allow you to market your project, generate interest, and receive funds. It is not limited to certain kind of project. There is no discrimination! Only great ideas! Crowdfunding fundraising can be fast, efficient, and effective if done right. The more creativity and fun you have, the more likely you’ll get funded. You share your crowdfunding fundraiser using social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Email, and Instagram. People can make an instant cash donation to your group or cause.
We have included a number of do-it-yourself fundraising ideas in this section that offer a break from traditional product sales. They were developed by groups just like yours in an attempt have a little fun with their fundraiser. Some of them are tried and true while others show a lot of creativity … and even wackiness in some cases. All of them are obviously not appropriate for every group, but sometimes, with only a little modification, your might find some fund raising ideas that are perfect for your group. If you have an idea for a do-it-yourself fund raiser you are willing to share with others, please send it to us via email. Include anything and everything you would want to know if you were hearing the idea for the first time.
