Grow Overall Fundraising Keep costs low Increased competition from competing organizations Diversify Fundraising Efforts Trend Driver: Need to grow overall revenue Pressure from the Top : Demand from Organizational Leadership Social Fundraising is… Relatively Low Cost to Set Up Relatively Low Cost to Maintain An Expansion of Fundraising Footprint
“But We Do Just Fine with Traditional Fundraising” Traditional fundraising events still have a place. However, to expand even our traditional fundraising, we rely on supporters and their friends. The tide toward social fundraising means “asks” for support by friends are becoming commonplace. As your friends and theirs are recruited to support other charities, if you don’t participate, you may lose ground you cannot gain back. 12 RMHC
