Crowdfunding campaigns bring additional opportunities for you to support FKHDF. 55% of those who engaged with nonprofits via social media are inspired to take further action. By utilizing your online connections and accessing your community of givers, it allows FKHDF to reach more donors than through traditional channels alone, highlighting special projects in addition to the good work you do every day.
One of the main components of designing your own fundraising opportunity is the ability it gives you to individualize your cause and explain why it matters to you. You can connect your own beliefs, values, and identity to FKHDF’s mission, and your personal fundraising page becomes a vehicle for you to express your story in your own words. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, or the loss of a pet or loved one, fundraising for a cause is a great way to recognize your life events and milestones along the way.
When you raise money for FKHDF, you help others learn about your cause through promotion of your campaign. People are more likely to donate to a cause that you feel strongly about and have shared that story with them.
