Do you have an important parade or walk coming up, and you aren't sure how you can raise funds for your group, organization or charity? Are you trying to gain popularity and help your charity grow quickly? There are a few different things you can do to get the word out about the upcoming event and ways that you can promote yourself at the event itself.
Social Media and Electronic Donations
Have all the main people involved with your group share information about your charity or organization on their social media pages. The information they give, or postings, should include a link where people can go online to donate money to your organization. If you can get every person that sees the post to donate just $1.00, and if the link is viewed by thousands, you'll be able to reach the amount you need fast. Ask that friends and family to keep sharing the link and information.
Do you need a large sign to carry during the parade or to have in front of your booth at events? If so, get a vinyl banner that is designed with the color, logo, and branding of your charity or group. Vinyl signs are perfect because they are weather resistant; light weight; easy to hang, stake, or carry; and can be rolled up. On top of that, you don't need a large area to store them, they are affordable, and you can order more than one and still get the signs quickly. For more information about vinyl banners, contact a local company like Davis Sign Co.
If you can get someone from your group on the television or radio, even if it's just for a couple of minutes, this is a great way to get people interested in your project. And people will remember seeing you on television when they see your booth or banner. Getting time with a popular local news station, or on the most popular radio stations in your area, shouldn't be too difficult if you explain what your group or charity is.
These are just a few ways you can get your voice and information out there for everyone to see, and how you can raise money. Get or do these different things and people in your community are going to recognize you, and they'll be more willing to donate and to help you when they see your booths and your stands around the community at local events.
