3 Ways to Spread Awareness about your Fundraiser
By: Alexandra Belvis
Your company is developing a philanthropic event and wants to get others involved. You can always ask friends and family to donate or volunteer, but that will only take you so far. Here are 3 things you can do spread awareness about the fundraiser or event, in the same way that you would for your business:
1. Leverage social media-Utilize all corporate accounts to tell your fans about the plans of your event. According to this article, social media can actually help increase donations by 40%.
2.Blog about it-If your company has a blog, create a short post about the fundraiser and then display it on your website. Build engagement about the event on your site.
3. Display eye-catching signage-Put up signs throughout the community and around the event location. Digitally-printed signage can be especially helpful in the days leading up to the event. Check out how one non-profit used super bright digital graphics to draw attention to their cause.
