Thanks so much for choosing Razoo!
On the following pages, you’ll ﬁnd tips and tricks
we’ve gathered over years of assisting individual
fundraisers and nonproﬁt organizations with their
online fundraising eﬀorts.
We’ve already helped raise over $160 million for
good causes. Now, we’d like to help make your
fundraiser as successful as possible.
Set Clearly Deﬁned Goals
Start by identifying speciﬁc, realistic goals and
requirements of your fundraiser:
• What do you want to accomplish with the money
you’re raising, and how much money do you need
to accomplish it?
• How will others feel the impact of your project?
• How much time do you need to raise the money?
• How much time and energy are you willing to
spend to make your fundraiser a success?
Use this checklist to prep for your fundraiser:
q Choose your cause or project, whether personal
q Deﬁne what impact you’d like to make.
q Choose a monetary goal.
q Pick an end date for your fundraiser.
q Create a Razoo account.
q Create your fundraising page. Short & Sweet:
run no longer
than 45 days.
Tell Your Story
Creating a fundraising page on Razoo is an
opportunity to tell your unique story through
words, imagery, and videos. We provide all the
tools, but you provide the most important part:
Make your page your own. Tell your donors about
your goals. Let them know the personal story
behind your eﬀorts.
The more you share, the more people will want to
share their generosity with you.
Have some fun with your fundraiser. A creative
approach goes a long way towards engagement
and makes your project more memorable.
Use Lots of Imagery
Images are powerful! Fundraisers with at least one
image raise 2x more money than those without.
So, use imagery that helps tell your story and
speaks to your audience.
Use Videos, Too
Fundraisers with at least one video raise 2.1x more
money than those without. Videos provide a
memorable, shareable, multimedia experience,
and don’t have to be fancy to be eﬀective.
Map Donations to Impact
It’s often diﬃcult for people to grasp how
much they can help with just a small donation.
Let people know how much each donation
will impact your project.
$100 1 veterinary check-up
$75 1 cat adoption fee
$50 2 inoculations
$25 1 month of prescriptions
$10 10 cans of cat food
Fundraisers are Campaigns
Think of your fundraiser as an ongoing campaign, rather
than something you post about once then forget. Support
your fundraiser with continuous promotion until you
reach your goal. Some helpful tips:
• Update people on your progress, send thank you
notes, or just ask people to share. Not every message
about your fundraiser needs to be a request for
• Upload new images on a frequent basis. Give people a
reason to keep coming back to your page.
• Comment on your fundraising page to keep people
engaged. Fundraisers with comments earn 8.3x more
money than those without.
Share Early, Share Often
Start your fundraiser oﬀ with a bang! We’ve found
that the ﬁrst few days of any fundraiser are critical
to its success. In fact, fundraisers who receive their
ﬁrst donation in their ﬁrst three days are far more
likely to hit their goal, regardless of the length of

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask
Most people are happy to help, you just have to
ask. Start by asking your inner circle and expand
from there. As your fundraiser builds momentum,
branch out to other groups.
