The Future of Fundraising: Are you Awake?

Online Social fundraising is about much more than just taking credit cards and paypal and slapping a big "Donate Now" button on your website (though a big visible button is very helpful!). It's also a lot more than yelling at folks on Twitter to donate. Successful online social fundraising requires lots of pieces of your marketing strategy and your technology tools to work together to provide a seamless, inspiring, and comforting experience for your donors.

  • Geo Location - Does X mark the Spot?* Have a sponsor donate $1 every time someone checks into their venue and shows it tothe manager/cashier/etc.* If you’re coordinating an event, give attendees an opportunity to earn a swarm badge for being there with more than 50 people, or a super swarm badge for being there with more than 250 people. These badges are often hard to acquire and are considered a bonus.* Add a contest such as a random lottery drawing of everyone who checks-in or a prize for the person with the best "shout-out" when they check-in.* Don’t expect Foursquare to make a special badge for your nonprofit. Stick with check-ins, mayor ships, and connections to offline opportunities.
