With the Gift of Parenthood’s new fundraising tools, future parents have the resources they need to break the stigma and financial strain of infertility, educate others, and raise money for fertility treatments. Using our platform to tell your story, you are in the driver’s seat of your fertility journey, spreading hope and representation that benefits the entire infertility community. Speaking publicly about your fertility challenges can feel scary at first, but we know you will find an outpouring of love from friends and family; you might even help someone else struggling in silence to feel less alone. To ensure that your campaign is as successful as possible, you must share, share, and share some more! Here are our top fundraising tips for getting the most exposure and donations possible.
Being vulnerable can feel nerve-racking, but when you open up to family and friends about your infertility struggle, they may be more supportive than you think, so we encourage you to build a fundraiser, raise funds for your fertility treatments, and start a conversation.
? Snap A Pic & Take A Video
Personalize your account by uploading a profile photo. It is a good idea to use a clear photo of yourself so your friends, family, and others you share your fundraiser with can easily identify you. Personalizing your fundraiser helps increase donations. Additionally, consider adding a video to bring even more life to your cause.
? Get Social
Share your fundraiser on social media to raise awareness and increase exposure. Fundraisers shared on social media raise up to 5x more so share and share often! Copy and paste the fundraiser page URL or use one of our social media sharing tools by logging into your Dashboard and going to Manage > Share Fundraiser
? Email Blast
Don’t underestimate the power of a simple email! Send email invites to friends and family who may want to contribute to your cause and encourage them to share with their network of friends. We built a comprehensive email invite tool that can be accessed via your Dashboard. Just go to Manage > Send Email Invites and fill in the required information. You can copy and past up to 50 email addresses to send out bulk invites!
