Simple Online Fundraising Ideas

Share it Please
Online fundraising isn’t limited to simply selling items (although it is a great way to raise funds for your preferred nonprofit). The digital plane is a vast world with many opportunities waiting to be discovered. With that in mind, here are a few online fundraising ideas you can try.

Email Solicitations

Email solicitations have been around for as long as most people can remember. In fact, it’s still one of the most effective ways to ask people for donations to your cause. Expand your connections and hone your writing skills, and you’ll soon be raising plenty of money.

Create a YouTube Challenge

Start a YouTube channel and ask your friends to share it on other social media channels. Create a video of yourself explaining your cause and asking people to contribute. Commit to doing something crazy after reaching a certain goal, like shaving your head on camera or submerging yourself in ice water upon raising $1,000. People will be encouraged to donate with the prospect of getting to see you embarrass yourself!

Meme Making Contest

Take a page out of 9GAG’s playbook and stage a meme-making contest. Provide a picture for contestants to use and charge a small entrance fee. Set aside a small fraction of the total donation amount and hand it as a prize to the winner of the contest. Better yet, ask a local business to sponsor prizes so you can give the entire donated amount to charity while giving the winner a unique prize.
