It's Simple, Secure and Free to Fundraise on Crowdera
TIPS FOR SUCCESS
Set Your Funding Goal
Decide how much you’d like to raise for your cause and how long to
run your campaign. We suggest your campaign to be at least 30 days,
but it cannot exceed 90 days. Of course, the length of your
campaign and how much you plan to raise all depends on your team
and the fund raising activities of your organization. Think
realistically, but don’t be afraid to think big!
Build your campaign page
Share your ideas and engage with supporters of your cause. Post a
description of your campaign, the beginning and end dates of your
campaign, and your funding goal. Include content like pictures and
video to make your page pop! Get started here.
Tell the story of your campaign with a short video. Crowdfunding
campaigns which include a video are 50% more successful! We suggest
your video be no more than 3 minutes long. Whether you’re filming
with a digital camera or a smartphone, videos that make a
connection with the passions and interests of your audience can
help you meet your goal.
Express your gratitude to your supporters with perks.
They can be as simple as two free tickets to a school sponsored
event or an original piece of student artwork. Your perks should
closely match the contributions to your campaign. The average
contribution is $70, but the most common is $25.
Appoint a Chief
Keep up the momentum of your campaign with a CEO, who actively engages with your campaign
supporters through email, social media and
campaign updates. Campaigns with more than 25 updates have raised
upward of 400% more funding! Frequent updates keep your supporters
informed and excited about your cause, which is key to a successful

family and friends
Get your loved ones involved with your campaign!
Spread the word about your fundraising efforts by
reaching out to your networks and sharing your campaign
on social media outlets and via email! Don’t be shy!
One of the reasons that crowdfunding campaigns are so successful is that they
have been shared across various geographies and reach a wide audience of contributors.
Add updates to your campaign regularly.
Campaign updates are automatically emailed to your contributors,
followers and teams. They trust and believe in you and your cause;
adding updates is a good way to keep in touch with them and keeping
them informed about the progress of your campaign.
Add teams to your campaign to multiply your results!
Each of your team members can help you gain momentum on
your fundraiser by telling their individual story, adding their own perks,
and sharing your fundraiser with their networks.
