This year, we have one extra day! February 29 only comes every once in a blue moon, so take advantage of all the things you can do as a fundraiser with that extra time!
While 24 hours might not seem like much in the scope of an entire year, we’ve put together a handy list of fundraising strategies and tactics that take just ONE day or less. You’ll find it’s possible to do a lot more in a day than you might have previously thought.
Say thank you – Call people, send a kind-hearted email and say thank you even if they haven’t donated recently. Unexpected acts of gratitude are often the ones people appreciate the most, so take the time to let constituents know you treasure them!
Organize a team event – When was the last time your organization got together for some good ‘ol fashioned team building? Have a brainstorming session, volunteer together for the afternoon, treat everyone to a fun lunch, or do all three! When you bring people together who care about a specific cause, magical things can happen.
Post a fun graphic or video to social media – Making a fun graphic that says something insightful or even post a video showing your followers a behind-the-scenes peek of your organization. It’s as easy as pie, and a great way to get your digital supporters engaged. Heck, you could even make it into a fun series!
Get some valuable training – Take the time to read from or watch a recorded webinar on a topic that you have been wanting to learn more about. Feel free to check out our resources, where we have tons of fundraising tools readily available for fundraisers who want to educate themselves on something new!
Set up a peer-to-peer campaign – Did you know that when you use the right software, it can take no time at all to get a fundraising event up and running? With Kimbia’s platform, it takes less than two minutes for your constituents to register as P2P fundraisers.
Set up testing – Fundraise smarter, not harder! Set up an A/B test to finally figure out if that subject line or button color is really does resonate better or.
