It might be the middle of July, but it’s never too early to get started planning for the busiest (and perhaps the most important) part of your fundraising year, #GivingTuesday through year-end. Many nonprofit organizations bring in a considerable portion of their annual fundraising dollars in this time of year, so it’s worth getting a jump on your planning and preparation. The first step is easy, sign up to host your #GivingTuesday 2019 campaign on Mightycause.
Why Join #GivingTuesday 2019 on Mightycause?
Powerful Fundraising Tools
It’s simple, great fundraising tools will make for a better fundraising campaign. Rather than just sending donors to a boring donate page, build a dynamic fundraising page that captivates and engages your supporters. Add a thermometer to showcase progress toward your goal, utilize video to help tell your story, promote a live matching grant, and recognize your supporters through a donor timeline.
Beyond a dynamic fundraising page for your campaign, Mightycause gives you the option to truly customize the donor experience. Set suggested donation levels with descriptions of their impact. Choose the data that you want to collect, whether that’s phone number, company or your donor’s t-shirt size. Make the most of your first stewardship opportunity by building a customized thank you page and receipt that donors will see as soon as they complete their donation.
When you’re really ready to kick your campaign up a notch, you can take advantage of Mightycause’s peer-to-peer fundraising tools. Whether just asking a few key individual supporters to fundraise on your behalf, or starting a team campaign to get all your board members to compete against each other, peer-to-peer fundraising is a sure fire way to extend your reach and acquire new donors with your #GivingTuesday 2019 campaign.
Pay Less than Paypal
That’s right, for less than the cost of a Paypal button on your website, you can get all of the powerful fundraising tools we just talked about. Donors will have the chance to cover a 4% platform fee, and a 2.9% plus $0.30 credit card fee, and the vast majority (nearly 90% across the Mightycause platform) will choose to cover those fees for your nonprofit. That means the average organization pays x to raise funds on Mightycause. In case that’s not enough to convince you, we’ve added a guarantee in place, so that no matter how many donors choose to cover the fees for you, your nonprofit will never pay more than 2.2% plus $0.29 in aggregate for a disbursement you receive from Mightycause. With Paypal, you’ll always pay 2.2% plus $0.30 and donors don’t have the option to cover those fees for you. Don’t leave money on the table, take advantage of great value with Mightycause.
Own Your Donor Data
When you choose to fundraise on Facebook, you may not realize what you’re giving up. What may seem like a great deal, or a chance to win matching funds, is really just a commitment to handing off your donor data. When your donors give through Facebook, Facebook owns their information. For more information on how facebook fundraising may hurt your nonprofit, check out the blog post from our CEO.
