One of the best ways to raise money for a cause or charity is to throw an event and invite many potential benefactors. Once you have the room decorated and the menu set, BizBash recommends taking advantage of the following four tools to help raise money during your next event:
- MobileCause is a text-to-give system that keeps bill handling with a donor’s wireless carrier. More recently, MobileCause added mobile pledging that allows donors to make a mobile payment with their credit card. The service links to an automated thermometer that measures the donation progress, which you can display at your event.
- BidPal brings a closed and secure WiFi network to your event that guests can access via smartphone or tablet to make donations. They can even sign up for “outbid” alerts that inform them when a fellow giver makes a larger donation – creating a sense of competition for a good cause.
- Bidding for Good is a fundraising auction site accessible via smartphone and desktop. Prior to your event, you can post any number of auction items to create excitement, so once your event starts it’s a free-for-all.
- Razoo provides an optimized site and donations page that is readily available for donors. The site can be shared as a QR code while Razoo also offers widgets that can be embedded on your website or social media pages.
