In the past, fundraising could only be done by meeting with friends, neighbors, and community members face-to-face. However, with the evolution of social media and the accessibility of the Internet, many fundraising groups have realized that online fundraising programs offer several unique benefits. At Florida Indian River Groves, we offer fundraising organizers three fruit fundraising programs in which to take part – including an entirely online ship-to-home program. Online fundraising programs can help groups extend their reach, personalize their marketing, save on expenses, and take advantage of convenient payment and delivery options. If you’re interested in online fundraising, read on to learn about these distinct benefits.
Extend Your Fundraising Reach Online
Online fundraising programs take place online from start to finish. This means that you immediately expand your potential reach. Rather than being limited to people you can meet face-to-face, you can reach out to your extended social network to sell them fresh fruit packages from Florida Indian River Groves. Considering how many people have friends and family spread throughout the country, including them in fundraising is highly beneficial.
When you use Florida Indian River Groves’ fundraising programs, you receive a free e-commerce website from which to operate your fundraising. As the fundraising coordinator, you have access to your website’s dashboard. You can easily set up the site, promote your fundraiser, and utilize built-in marketing tools to reach potential supporters.
When you use our free mobile fundraising apps, selling to supporters is even easier. Participants download the app, and select contacts already on their device to receive texts or emails regarding the fundraiser. Participants can also link their social media accounts to reach out seamlessly to their online network.
Online fundraising programs make sharing fundraising materials a breeze. Traditional fundraising can typically involve lots of printing of paper sales packets and brochures. The time and expense required in printing and distributing these items can be exhausting. When using the online-only program, you can effortlessly share a digital fundraising brochure and a link to your free online ordering web page with as many supporters as you like.
Convenient Payment and Distribution
When you use online fundraising programs, payment collection and product distribution are easier than ever. All sales are submitted online, with supporters able to use a credit card, debit card, or electronic check. You can use your website to track sales and profits by participants while knowing the funds are protected.
Once the selected fruits are ready to ship, they can be delivered directly to the recipient’s door. This saves you the hassle of distribution while your supporters don’t need to schedule a pick-up time. Instead, they have their fresh fruit boxes delivered to their home address!
When you take advantage of online fundraising programs, you can avoid the stress, frustration, and time-consuming activities that often discourage fundraising participation. Instead, you can enjoy larger profits and happier participants and supporters.
