Crowdfunding is a style of fundraising where you can set up an online donation page and ask your friends and family to donate. It’s really that simple.
To get started, you should pick a platform and set up your campaign page. Your page should have a captivating title, a reasonable fundraising goal, a few compelling images, and a well-written description to convince people to donate.
Crowdfunding is our top choice for fundraisers connected to breast cancer for many reasons. Here are three:
- The campaigns are virtual, so if you’re trying to raise money while focusing on treating your breast cancer, you and your family & friends can manage a low-maintenance campaign. That way, you can focus on your health while reaping the benefits of a successful fundraiser.
- Crowdfunding is quick and free, too. With the right mix of promotion and campaign design, you can raise a lot of money in a fairly short amount of time.
- When raising money for breast cancer treatment, research, and / or awareness, you have an inherently compelling cause that people are going to be driven to give to. Setting up an online crowdfunding page helps you make your cause known to a larger audience than if you were limited to in-person fundraising.
If this has convinced you, in just a few short minutes you could have a campaign up, running, and raising money.
