Now more than ever people crave connection. Just because it’s harder to gather people together physically doesn’t mean we can’t create this feeling of community and togetherness.
Challenges for good causes do this. They bring people together around a single goal and are an amazing way to offer connection to your supporters and raise money for your charity.
And the glue which holds these challenges together is Facebook Groups.
When you’ve got hundreds of people in a Facebook Group, doing the same challenge at the same time, something magical happens. They become like a huge sports team. They encourage each other. They drive each other to do more.
And they love the experience.
Based on this core idea, Roswell Park Alliance Foundation tested an innovative new model using Facebook Ads, Groups and Facebook fundraisers to run a new style of virtual event entirely on Facebook. It resulted in acquisition of new supporters at a much lower cost per acquisition and higher fundraising metrics leading to an overall jump in return on investment.
What was originally a short-term fix, working around existing physical events, has turned into a long-term opportunity.
In this fast-paced session you’ll learn:
- How to generate thousands of new Facebook fundraisers with a simple, low-cost strategy that works even during lockdowns
- The core problem with Facebook fundraising and how to solve it
- Why Facebook Groups are the secret sauce to P2P fundraising and how to get a huge return on Facebook ad spend
- How not to trip yourself up by implementing shiny digital technology that your supporters don’t want or need
- And much more!
