With the new year approaching, it's time to get your fundraising strategy in place for 2022. Check out three of the top fundraising tips you can put in place right now.

 

1. Always use dollar handles

Donors could be spending their money anywhere, and it's up to you to show them why they should give to your organisation.

Boost transparency and trust by sharing a video of your team talking about their personal drive to help the cause, a showcase about how your services are making a difference, or even just a fun, behind-the-scenes look at your day-to-day work.
