2021 was a year with hopes. The way we had suffered from March 2020 to mid 2021, it would be correct to say, we had not only lost our economy but our faith to rise as we were before.
But changes took place. The winds set our sail in a new direction; a positive direction. We have learnt the best use of technology in 2020. This year we put it to the best use.
Like any other activity, fundraising could also be done online. There are various ways, where we can create platforms and invite people to join our fundraising. This not only engaged people but also created a larger reach. Online platforms made it possible for these fundraising campaigns to reach every corner of the world.
Let us check out how online fundraising made a difference.
- Virtual Events
- Joint hands by Non-profit and For profit organizations
- Social media
- Peer to peer fundraising
1. Virtual Events
Virtual concerts, expos, business conferences have started to become the rulers of the market today. These events help in saving a lot of money otherwise and help raise funds. These platforms reach a larger audience and engage the backers from across the globe.
2. Joint hands by Non-profit and For profit organizations
The people who work together, live happily. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw new partnerships between for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations. Here, many startups join hands with Non-profit organizations, in order to do something better for the society. With this, not only did the NPOs earn charity but also, recently started startups began receiving recognition and soon funds began to raise.
3. Social Media Reach out
Pandemic has turned everyone, young and the old, social media masters. We are now well versed with how to make social media the best promotional tool. With social media reach out, you can reach not only your close ones but all and can share your ideas and business plans and get a lot of positive responses.
4. Peer to Peer Fundraising
With peer to peer fundraising, a lot of our closed ones support our project and be the best help they can be. They would also use other tools to bring more supporters, for us to get better funds. All in all, peer to peer fundraising, will help us reach our goal along with others working for our goal.
Though the pandemic has hit all hard, it has clearly taught a lot. We have become advanced, technology-versed and well aware about how without going anywhere, we can reach the world and be part of somebody’s success story.
