Crowdfunding is an easy and effective way to raise money to cover the cost of expensive medical treatments and unexpected health emergencies. Due to the current coronavirus crisis, it’s more important than ever to be able to generate revenue incredibly quickly.
Crowdfunding simply refers to reaching out to your network of supporters and asking for donations. The top crowdfunding platforms let you set up mobile-responsive online donation pages and collect donations from your friends, family members, and even strangers. All it takes is a few clicks (or taps) to donate. Supporters—whether they’re directly impacted or complete strangers—will feel compelled to give when it’s that convenient!
To start a campaign, you’ll need to select a crowdfunding software provider and then design your fundraising page (complete with pictures, a description, and a fundraising goal). Once your page is set up, you can share it with your network and start asking for donations to cover medical fees.
Here’s why crowdfunding is our #1 medical fundraising idea for coronavirus:
- The campaigns can be managed from anywhere. In other words, if you’re busy focusing on your health or are potentially limited in terms of what activities you can do, online crowdfunding makes it easy to fundraise from the comfort of your own home or bed. With social distancing orders in effect all around the world, the ability to fundraise remotely during coronavirus is a crucial consideration.
- With a crowdfunding campaign, you get the opportunity to truly tell your story. You can use images and video in addition to a compelling campaign description to explain your situation and what any donations would mean to your health and your treatments. Remember, the most successful campaigns evoke emotion and convey the urgent need for funding!
