How To Create a Fundraising Website

The first thing that any organisation, club or charity should do is setup an online donations page page

How To Create a Fundraising Website

We have many ways to help you fundraise on your own website including, auctions, raffles, online store and live streaming. Also it is a continous way to fundraise and promote any fundraising event.

The Importance of a Donation Page

We are living in the digital age and if you are not taking online donations from your website, you are ignoring that fact to your considerable loss. People like ex pats from your area see social media and would like to support events back home so taking regular payments online is essential.

Provide Donation Options

Offer different donation options, such as one-time donations, monthly donations, or custom amounts.

This is a huge mistake that most seem to make regarding their donation form. You have a unique chance to upsell another donation product.

A club payments form for instance can feature donations, memberships, 50-50 draw, raffles, tickets, products, general payments

Promotion

Highlight the benefits of donating, such as supporting a good cause or receiving a tax deduction.

Share your donation page on the usual social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, TikTok or Instagram

Run paid ads on social media platforms or Google to reach a wider audience. This is a good strategy for starting off with a donation page.

 

I include a specialised website of all of the donation features listed above for clients websites.
