Using a crowdfunding platform, you can set up an online donation page that is easily shareable with your friends, family, and broader network.
First, you start by picking a crowdfunding platform (check out this list of top crowdfunding websites to help make your decision). Once you’ve found the right crowdfunding software, you’ll want to design a compelling page.
An effective crowdfunding donation page will include: an informative title, an aggressive but attainable goal, at least one high-quality photo, and a thorough description explaining what the campaign is meant to accomplish.
For funeral costs and memorial funds, crowdfunding can be especially effective as a fundraiser for a number of reasons:
- Online crowdfunding pages are easily shared and can overcome geographic boundaries that would impede other types of fundraisers. So, if you’re raising money to cover the costs of a funeral for a loved one, and someone wants to show their support but can’t attend the funeral because they live too far away, they can still make a donation and leave a condolence message.
- Crowdfunding campaigns can be very low-maintenance, which is important when you’re dealing with more important matters than raising money. While you and your loved ones come together and mourn, a crowdfunding page can be up, actively shared, and collecting donations, giving you one less thing to worry about.
