Fund a Campaign places a PayPal shopping cart on your schools Facebook page with a "We Need Your Help" call to action.
This encourages a "followers" to donate $100 and receive a free gift, an amazing flashlight pen (or whatever you choose) for their generosity.
We collect the money, record the donor's information and ship the product right to their door.
The only responsibilities assigned to the school are to send a "Thank You" email to the donor. Fund A Campaign does everything else. We furnish the gift, collect the money, pack and ship the item and distribute the proceeds.
The school does nothing else and receives 100% of the net proceeds.
Example... if the total cost (the gift item, shipping, handling, payment processing, PayPal Shopping Cart, etc.) is $15, the net profit will be $85, which the school receives deposited directly to their bank account. This works 24/7 and is a continuing program that Fund A Campaign monitors and administers.
If you have 50 Facebook followers that will donate $100 and "shares" this with their FB friends, that nets $4,250.
Now these friends have 50 friends each (total of 2500 friends) and just 10% of those (250) donate $100 for a gift, that brings in $21,250.
With just these 300 FB followers, it brings in $25,500. You are also helping build name recognition for the organization by sending a logo imprinted gift
If you decide to ask for only $50 donations, the net proceeds would be $35. Using the same scenario of 300 Facebook friends, would yield $10,500!
A recent report by Artez Interactive found Facebook had the greatest impact on fundraising when participants raised donations through families and friends.
Why? Because people care about the causes that their friends care about.
In fact, in an average peer-to-peer or "crowd sourced" campaign, 15 to 18 per cent of donations are referred from Facebook.
In scenarios where a fundraising campaign allows registrants to use a social login, those who connect their accounts to Facebook will raise on average 40 per cent more than those who do not, plus earn 30 per cent more donations!
