In the meantime, here are some additional FansRaise resources and recommended further reading.
We’ve made it our mission to help arts programs as much as possible. We’re trying to spread and grow the arts — here’s how.
No fundraising is truly 100% automatic—that would be magic. In reality, it takes work.
Campaigns need proactive monitoring. If 10 of your members never signed up, wouldn’t you ask them about it?
For a fundraising campaign to be truly successful, it needs to be monitored, managed, and maximized.
Luckily, we can help – we offer training and coaching sessions for all our customers and their student members.
Win the game, win the prize
Most campaigns need to motivate high school & college students — FUN is a key ingredient.
We’re all competitive, even if we only compete with ourselves. Use that to your advantage.
The MOST important factor in campaign success is buy-in from the members, and friendly competitions make that happen.
Section vs. section. Upper classes vs. lower classes. Whatever your competitive model is, make sure the members have a FUN reason to participate.
Above all, members should understand that when they compete, the whole program wins.
Incentives & Thank You’s
Our platform will contact & collect — but your campaign needs to convince & convert.
Donors love to receive gifts & thank you’s in return for their support. Leverage the incentives.
One of our most successful campaigns ever turned a pile of used drum heads into a pile of $100 donations.
You might call this the PBS Model: set aside 5 types of “gift” or thank you item to give to your donors. The more they give, the higher tier gift they receive.
Donors are generous people, by definition. But incentives and thank you’s are proven to improve donation rates and amounts.
