If crowdfunding really is the best option for your need, take time to frame a strong ask reflecting what your audience cares about, and make sure it has a clear call to action.
Set a realistic goal for your crowdfunding campaign and get loyal supporters on board early.
After a strong launch campaign, keep up momentum with regular communications and updates, not forgetting personal outreach. Think about the right messengers in your community and ask them to amplify the campaign.
Don’t forget to acknowledge your donors and keep them updated about the impact their generosity is having, converting them into long-term supporters.
