Fundraising can be challenging, especially when you want to make sure you reach as many people as possible. While fundraising in-person is still a great way to reach supporters, including a mobile app in your fundraising tool kit can help you reach even more people and save you some extra time too. At Florida Indian River Groves, every fundraising group we work with receives a free fundraising website and mobile app to reach out to friends and family. As you initiate mobile fruit sale fundraising, remember these tips for success.
Keep Things Simple
To make giving as easy as possible for your supporters, focus on straightforward communication and easy-to-access information. Keep your mobile fruit sale fundraising efforts easy by scheduling outreach within your app. When you use the Florida Indian River Groves app, you can automate the sending of prewritten text messages and social media posts, encouraging your friends to purchase items benefiting your cause. These messages include links that take potential supporters directly to a web page to browse items and initiate orders.
Include a Clear Call to Action
At the end of every message sent to your supporters, provide clear instructions for what you want them to do. For example, at the end of every message you send through Florida Indian River Groves’ fundraising app, you can ask your supporters to purchase their fruit products and provide a link where they can do so.
Spread the Word on Social Media
Sharing your fruit sale fundraising campaigns on social media can significantly increase the effectiveness of your outreach. When you use our mobile fundraising app at Florida Indian River Groves, you can schedule regular posts on your social accounts. By posting your fundraising messages to your social profiles, you can reach your entire network and gain new supporters.
Make Sure Your App Is Secure
Your supporters will want to know that their information is secure. The fundraising website and app for Florida Indian River Groves ensure that supporters’ payment information is safe. Make sure to let your supporters know they can trust the fundraising website and submit their orders online as easily as they would in person.
Always Say Thank You
One golden rule applies for both mobile fruit sale fundraising and in-person fundraising. You should always say thank you! While fundraising messages sent to your friends and family can be automated through our app, once someone supports your cause, you should send a personalized thank you when possible. The message doesn’t need to be long, but your supporters will greatly appreciate a small note of thanks. This may also encourage those supporters to help your group raise money in the future.
