  • According to the Millennial Impact report
  • Setting up your page: blog post: http://blog.firstgiving.com/back-to-basics-how-to-set-up-a-facebook-fan-page-for-your-nonprofit/
  • -Provide fundraising information within your registrant packets.-Waive the registration fee if an enforced fundraising minimum is reached.-Provide incentives, like free T-shirts or guaranteed numbers in a race to top fundraisers.-If your organization uses FirstGiving’s online event registration, we’ve done the work for you! We guarantee 60% of your registrants will fundraise.
  • These should be present on your nonprofit website as well as your nonprofit fundraising pagehttp://blog.firstgiving.com/10-must-haves-for-your-nonprofits-fundraising-page/ (follow up content)
  • Between 2007 and 2010, fundraisers who created their own grassroots fundraising pages on FirstGiving received higher average donations than those who participated in official nonprofit events. Grassroots fundraisers are tailored to the passion and energy of the individual fundraisers, which, are more likely to inspire friends, family members and colleagues to give more. All of this because of the personal nature of the donation appeal.
