Fundraising to pay for cancer treatment

Fundraising to pay for cancer treatment | Social Media and Non-Profit | Scoop.it

" When Michelle Shutzer was diagnosed with late-stage colon cancer two years ago, she initially shunned the idea of holding a fundraiser or soliciting money from friends and family to pay for any out-of-pocket costs associated with her illness.

 

Then she decided to "crowdsource" funds.

 

"Fundly, which was started in 2009 for political campaigns, is considered one of the largest social fundraising platforms, with more than 28,000 campaigns to date collectively raising about $290 million. The company has large nonprofit clients such as Teach for America and Habitat for Humanity, but its largest use by far for individual fundraising is medical care."

Fundly, which is privately held, is designed to connect with other social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube."

Social Life: Why social media is the future for charities

Social Life: Why social media is the future for charities | Social Media and Non-Profit | Scoop.it

"Social media marketing and fundraising is powerful because, unlike traditional mail which has an uncanny knack of catching you at the wrong time, charities can reach and build relationships with new hot leads. We search and share so much that at the exact point of someone thinking about an area your charity helps, you can reach them. Whether this is using social media monitoring, Facebook ads or Google Adwords (using the $480,000 of Google grant that your charity could access), cost per acquisition suddenly sinks through the floor. And because they were in the right zone when you reached out, they are not only more likely to respond, but it is easier to build a relationship. Through the immediacy of website and social media interaction, there is the chance to accelerate them from being attracted, to taking action to becoming an advocate in no time. Advocates become your social media army, sharing and stimulating others and helping word of mouth flourish."

Katya's Non-Profit Marketing Blog | Social Media and Non-Profit | Scoop.it

"1. Don’t tell your nonprofit to value marketing… And don’t call it marketing.

When people tell me their organization doesn’t value marketing, they typically say something like this: “I tell my boss why marketing is important and why he should care about it. I tell him we absolutely must do X, Y and Z because marketing is so valuable.” What’s interesting about this approach is that it’s basically a sermon on why the organization should value marketing. That is not walking our talk as marketers! We should be asking our colleagues what THEY care about and showing how we can support that—rather than informing them that they should care about marketing."
