17 Oct TIPS TO THE TOP: FALL FUNDRAISING
The busiest months in the fundraising calendar are ahead of us! Good thing Shellie Speer, our Executive VP/Client Strategic Development, has all the tips you need to come out on top of fall fundraising.
GET YOUR BEST VIDEO OUT THERE
If you don’t have appropriate video to post at this time, make sure to schedule someone to shoot video at your 2016 event.
Or video an interview with a volunteer who has served the holiday meal for a number of years and use the video to promote assistance before, during and after your Thanksgiving event.
SET UP A REPORTER RIDE-ALONG
Invite a reporter to ride along with your volunteers/staff to deliver or distribute meals to the elderly, shut-ins or low-income families.
CONNECT WITH NEW VOLUNTEERS
Increase interest in and awareness of your volunteer opportunities by registering your organization on VolunteerMatch.
This unique website attracts thousands of individuals looking to “give back” every day, and has connected nearly 11.5 million good people with good causes since 1998.
The site also offers a variety of tools and services to help your organization recruit new volunteers, manage them effectively and become a great place to volunteer.
It’s as simple as logging on to VolunteerMatch and creating a profile with information about your organization and volunteer needs. The process takes less than 15 minutes – and best of all, it’s free!
