Motivating your team for fundraising success!

People like succeeding at personal goals, which is why setting up levels for people to reach is enticing…even when they’re volunteering their time with you. There’s an interest, which naturally happens, through curiosity and the desire to be the best. 

In multi-level marketing the image below would be considered a down line. One person invites multiple people to join them in accomplishing a goal.

Social Networks

Through fundraising at SOAR we talk about our downline as ADVOCATES who are members of a team. Once an Advocate comes on board the goal is for them to invite others to become advocates alongside them. This involves inspiring people through LEVELS of accomplishment. An Advocate becomes a Major Advocate, Progressive Advocate, Competent Advocate and at the highest level – a Distinguished Advocate when they accomplish goals.

Adding value for involvement

Begin by making a list of twenty marketing benefits your advocates will receive because they tell people about you. Narrow your list of twenty down to the most important and beneficial. The reason you list twenty to begin with is because a long list allows ideas to develop. It is a creative strategy for thinking outside of the box. You can do this brainstorming process with a group of people. SOAR recommends staff and volunteers working on it together.

Advocate levels include marketing opportunities. The list below is an example of the first two levels:

Advocate (telling people about your organization)

  • Printed nametag for events
  • Invitation to quarterly event
  • Mentioned on social media

Major Advocate (2 advocates in down-line)

  • Printed nametag for events
  • Invitation to quarterly event
  • Mentioned on social media
  • Opportunity to be involved with events as a greeter
  • Ribbon added to nametag (“Major”)

As you expand your program to the higher levels of advocates you continue to increase the amount of benefits a person receives.

Learn more about two new programs with SOAR, which are meant to help you stand out among other organizations in relation to how you give back. This 9-minute video helps to explain!

Your ability to give back in productive ways makes a huge difference in results when it comes to creating awareness about your program.

Vehicles for Raising Money!

Individual giving, group giving, and organizational giving are three of the vehicles people use for donating money nowadays. This is important to know when you’re establishing ways to share your information with people who may be potential donors. These methods become vehicles for your success when you let people know your organization is an option.

Individual: This is when someone gets directly involved in your mission. Usually, there are obvious reasons, which make this happen. They may have a  personal connection through a family member or friend. Other times, it’s not so simple.

Group: This is when someone chooses to be part of a group giving campaign. It may be dedicating an amount of money for someone completing a task. The one that comes to mind is a “run” where a person contributes so much per mile when it’s completed. It’s a sponsorship, so to speak.

The popular giving campaigns would fall into this category. Many people are now giving their donations through “Giving Tuesday” because it touches the organizations, which are tried and true and have taken the steps to market themselves. This is always the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – https://www.givingtuesday.org/

In Colorado there’s the Colorado Give campaign. Last year, https://www.coloradogives.org/ raised nearly 34 million dollars in twenty-four hours. This is the first Tuesday in December this year.

In Colorado Springs there’s the IndyGive campaign where 75 non-profits learn how to market their organization while also encouraging people to donate during the two month campaign. https://indygive.com/ 

The last one mentioned here – also in Colorado Springs – is the Empty Stocking Fund. this event has been around for thirty-three years. It will run Thanksgiving Day through January 19, 2018. 100% of the funds go directly to agencies to support those in need thanks to the sponsors. https://www.fillanemptystocking.org/about-the-fund/

Organizational: This is where people are contributing on the level of sponsorship. They may donate money and receive a product in return. Many times a business will purchase a “table” at a fundraising event and people from the business will attend. Sometimes, the people sitting at the table also contribute personally, which does help the organization grow. The best benefit to the people in the room is they get to know more about the organization and have the opportunity to get more involved.

Organizations sponsor the fundraising efforts of the campaigns mentioned above (IndyGive, Empty Stocking Fund, Colorado Gives and Giving Tuesday) and this allows for ways people can be involved on the organizational level.
