1. Engage Donors In Mobile Giving

What better way to fundraise than on your mobile device and activate donors in just two clicks. Mobilize your fundraising efforts with a free text-to-donate keyword, included as a feature for all fundraisers. Choose your preferred keyword that donors can text to the easiest number to remember: 707070. It's perfect for any event in person or virtual!

2. Spread the Word on Social Media

Tell your network about the campaign and share why your cause is important to you. Set a fundraising goal and share that with people, too. If you plan to go live on social media to talk about your campaign, reiterate the importance online! Include the text call-to-action in your imagery & in your caption, so that it's very clear and easy for people to remember.

Here are examples of how you could spread awareness for your cause through your social posts and campaign assets:
