3 Fundraising Campaigns Do's and Don'ts


  • DO be detailed. This is how you can emotionally connect with your donors so make sure your story is interesting and informative. 
  • DON'T forget to outline your goals by answering questions like who are you impacting, what is the time frame? and how can donors help? 


  • DO engage your donors by responding to comments, posting updates, and sharing pictures to encourage future donations. 
  • DON'T be afraid to repeat yourself. It can take time for donors to get to know your campaign, so send multiple e-mails to let them know how to get involved. 

Social Media

  • DO plan your content. Take advantage of social media by planning clear and thoughtful content that helps donors focus on your campaign. 
  • DON'T tweet before you seed. Donors like momentum! That's why we suggest waiting until you've hit 30% of your goal before promoting your campaign on any social media.
