Charity questions

How do I create a successful fundraiser?

If you’re on Incitement to raise funds or recruit volunteers for your social project, you will need to spread the word about your project in order to create awareness around it and ultimately attract sponsors and volunteers.

To help you do this, we’ve created a collection of creative materials that you can use on your website, social media channels and email lists.

We’ve also compiled a list of tips and best practices for crowdfunding campaigns, to help you get the most out of your fundraising efforts.

If you ask us, we’d be happy to help you create custom creative materials for your specific cause or project. Should you be interested in this, go to our page on Incitement and start a chat conversation with us.
