Fundraising can be difficult without the right tools. One of the most important tools of crowdfunding is learning how to maintain good donor relationships. By communicating with your donors you not only get better results but also make your supporters feel valued. Here are the best tools for learning how to write a fundraiser update.
The first step to writing an update is to recognize how your donors have helped so far. It’s critical to be grateful and sincere. Often times we don’t realize how important a simple “Thank You” is to many people. After you have thanked everyone, let them know how close you are to your goal. When you write your updates, remember to include your custom hashtag. Link to your social media pages and any blog posts you may be writing about your crowdfunding journey. Once you have given a brief update on your fundraising goals, it is time to really connect with your supporters.
After giving a good update on your fundraiser, let your donors know how else they can help: this can include showing up to a fundraising event or sharing your cause with others. Remember that people really want to support you!
