Virtual Fundraising: The New Way for Schools and Groups to Raise Funds
In the good old days, catalogs and paper form ordering were the go-to for fundraising. Participants would go door-to-door or call up their relatives on the phone and ask them to purchase products from their fundraising catalog. But! Technology has blasted the fundraising industry forward into the digital world and we are happy to be here! Fundraising has a new edge and Charleston Wrap® is taking advantage. From online ordering, to social media & TEXT sharing, to convenient home delivery - we have the tools to make the sale easy for you and your supporters (and more profitable, too!)
We'd like to introduce you to this easy-as-pie virtual fundraising program and give you a glimpse into the "digital marketing verse" where promotion of your fundraiser happens with the click of a button.
In Fall 2020, no one really knew what to expect, so we prepared ourselves for whatever the case may be. What we found was not only that 85% of our sales were placed online, but that organizations INCREASED their sale! And all without having to deal with money collection or a product delivery. With the use of our virtual fundraising marketing materials and promotional tools, fundraising has never been easier for sponsors.
How Virtual Fundraising Works
Step 1: Kick-off your fundraiser using our user-friendly instructions and promotional tools. Participants share their fundraising link with family and friends via TEXT, email, and social media. (Ask about our "Semi-Virtual" option and our Look Book!)
Step 2: Track your fundraiser's progress online using your organization's Sponsor Portal and continue promoting your virtual fundraiser using our easy digital tools and helpful resources.
Step 3: Collect your profit check!
No matter the reason you’re raising funds, the process is simple when you're raising funds virtually. Whether your group is meeting on Zoom or in person, or whether your students are in the classroom or continuing to operate remotely, Charleston Wrap® has your fundraising needs covered.
