1 Training for Nonprofits Part II of II: Using and Getting the Most out of Razoo Nevadas Big Give powered by

2 Getting the Most out of Razoo 1. Create Projects, Fundraisers, and Teams. 2. Encourage Donations – be creative! 3. Plan a Fundraising Strategy. 2

3 Create: Projects From your nonprofit page, click the Fundraise button on the right hand side to create a page for a specific program or event, which we call Projects. Click Share to embed a Status Widget on your website or in your e-mail signature. The status widget updates as donations are made to your project and is hyperlinked to your project page. 3

4 Create: Fundraisers Direct supporters to click the Fundraise button on the right hand side of your organizations page. Fundraisers are customizable pages where supporters can use their own personality to raise funds on your behalf. When individuals share why they love your nonprofit through their fundraiser, your work gains more exposure and support. 4

5 Create: Teams A team page unites multiple people who are fundraising for the same cause or event. Overall progress is tracked and organized in one central location. Once the Fundraise link is clicked, click Set Up a Team and follow the prompts. 5

6 Encourage: Asking Personal: Send e-mails to individuals, or call them on the phone, rather than sending mass e- mails. Relevant: Help supporters relate by telling stories about ways your nonprofit has made a difference. Concrete: Provide examples of work your organization has done and ways that their donations will bring about future good. 6

7 Encourage: Creativity Associate your online fundraiser with an actual event. Have people donate to your fundraiser on a laptop, iPhone, or iPad: –host a party or happy hour –invite people into your office –start a competition Use photos and captions to tell a story or make a video highlighting the work of your nonprofit. 7

8 Examples of Creativity Tell a story with images and captions. Add suggested donation amounts to express the value of a donation. Connect your fundraiser with the actual work of your organization and help donors relate. 8

9 Examples of Creativity Use a matching grant to inspire generosity, generate enthusiasm, and double your donations. Tell the story of a specific way your organization has made a difference. 9
