2021 has passed and nonprofits are gearing up for another year. Just as it has always been, a new year brings a new chance to evaluate what has worked and what hasn’t.
This blog highlights 3 ways you can creatively increase donations. Check them out, adopt them, make them your own, and let’s have a great year of fundraising!
When it comes to fundraising campaigns the possibilities are endless. There are many options to choose from; tools such as peer-to-peer, text-to-donate, video fundraising, can be leveraged to step outside of the norm.
A new type of campaign can spark engagement and teamwork internally and also grab the eyes of potential donors. If you want to do even better than last year, be sure to try out new ideas!
2. Be Personal
One of the best f
eelings is being recognized and shown appreciation on a personal level. For example, when a donor is personally thanked for their contribution, it can produce a meaningful impact in the way they perceive your organization.
When 20 years pass, we won’t remember everything, but we will remember who made us feel appreciated. And as a nonprofit organization, you have a huge opportunity to make your donors feel like they made an impact.
Record live thank you messages and send them with Shoutout directly to your donors!
You may not see the results in a week or a month, but these small gestures can become waves that propel your fundraising and donor retention to new heights.
3. Add an Element of Surprise
Who doesn’t love a good surprise?

Teasing a surprise can spark curiosity and engage potential donors. Likewise, bringing special guests to events is an effective way to inspire action.
The best types of surprises are one that resonate with your audience. You know them best!
