You can now manage your team for fundraising success!
Here are some ways to get things started!
If live-streaming, encourage the use of the Team Overlay to track and display the performance of everyone's fundraising!
Determine the length of the campaign! Is it a weekend of fundraising or are you fundraising throughout the year! Having a certain day is a powerful way to create a sense of urgency.
Gather your contact lists and send emails, make social media posts in order to let people know about what you’re doing.
Connect with the charity you are supporting to see if they have assets to show why you are looking for support.
Inquire at your school, place of worship, place of work, or community center to see if they are interested in joining your team.
Check to see if your employer provides matching gifts for donations made.
Donate to yourself to get things started and encourage your teammates to do the same! Get that donation train moving!
Set-up awards and shout-outs for teammates that hit goals.
Touch base regularly with your team with any updates or encouraging messages about the impact they have on the cause!
Celebrate post-campaign and give your team members a recap of their fundraising performance!
Teams have a great potential to expand your fundraising potential and bring your community together for great causes on Tiltify. Setting a team up is easy, it's up to you what you do with it.
