Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Create a Page
One of the best ways to garner early momentum when you begin to fundraise is to create a page with unique and compelling content that captures the viewer’s attention. If you want to hit your goal, be as transparent as possible. Let people know why WestBridge is important to you.
Don’t be afraid to tell your story about your time at or working with WestBridge. The more thorough your page’s description and the more insight you can provide into why WestBridge is so special, the better. Photos also go a long way in bringing your page to life. You can embed videos, post events and add links to outside sites to keep supporters up to date and interested. Because of the nature of the work WestBridge does, we would ask that any photos or videos you may choose to share be selected with the utmost care and attention to protecting the privacy of others who may not wish to be identified.
Step 2: Spread the Word
Asking for donations is not easy, but all successful organizers overcome this challenge when they fundraise. While asking for financial support can be humbling, we’ve witnessed thousands of people come together, time and again.
Start to fundraise on a smaller scale by asking close friends and family to be part of your fundraising effort. Then once you’ve gathered early momentum, promote your page via email, Facebook and other social media outlets. Supporters can donate to your WestBridge Friends page online using a credit card, debit card or PayPal account.
Step 3: Receive Funds
Your fundraiser will be updated as people donate to WestBridge Recovery Opportunity Fund. We process all of the funds that you receive, you only need to send us any cash or checks you receive. You can track your progress via the thermometer and in your online headquarters. Do a happy dance knowing you just did something extraordinary.
Let people know that 100% of the donations they make are tax deductible and the system will automatically send them a receipt for tax purposes.
Step 4: Pay it Forward
Pay it forward by helping another WestBridge Friend learn how to fundraise online. They’ll be grateful that you did!
