The pandemic continues to change the way we’ve always done things.
What if you’re a board member who’s stuck at home? How can you support your nonprofit’s fundraising?
3 Ways to Help Your Nonprofit Fundraise in a Pandemic
People are still being generous. They are still giving to nonprofits. Even in a pandemic with unprecedented economic disruption.
How can you help them give to your favorite nonprofit?
- Keep giving yourself, if you can
Your giving will help set an amazing example for others. Even if you don’t talk about it, people will know your asking them to give to the nonprofit is based in your own giving.
- Share with others that you’re giving
If you can share, do. Social proof is motivating for others. People find it easier to do things they see people like themselves doing. So if they’ve seen you’ve given, they will be more likely to help too.
- Tell you “nonprofit” story
Even while you’re stuck at home, you can start your “nonprofit” story. Think about your involvement. Being a board member is a big deal. What inspired you to give you time and talent to this nonprofit? Why do you keep giving it? What values connect you to this particular nonprofit?
As you get clearer on this answer, you’ll be able to help your nonprofit raise even more money.
