Fundraising is usually a key consideration when hosting a Color Walk/Run. There are many options when fundraising for an event and at Color Blaze we feel the most successful fundraising campaigns use an online fundraising platform. Online fundraising platforms typically raise 2x more than the typical paper-based fundraiser and individual online donations can be up to 25% more than offline donations. Online fundraisers also track everything for you so with the click of a mouse you can see what percentage to goal you’re at and how each team/class and individual is performing. There is no need to chase down pledge forms and keep track of a student’s envelope full of cash and checks.
How It Works – Blaze Raise Online Fundraising is a secure web-based fundraising platform that is used to collect donations. You and your participants can email potential donors a link which they can click to easily and securely donate to your cause. You can also share the link on social media.
Create Your Fundraiser and Add Your Participants – We have a super easy to follow template. You just enter your fundraiser information and then add your participants. You can break them down by classes, by teams, or just list individuals. We can even do it for you! You’ll have a dedicated fundraising coach you will help you every step of the way.
Start Raising Funds – Send out a link to your participants so that they can create their own individual fundraising page that they can share with their own network of family and friends via email and social media. Blaze Raise makes it easy to reach your neighbor next door and your uncle who lives across the country. Your fundraising just went viral!
Track, Share an Motivate – Track & Share progress to make fundraising fun and competitive. Keep motivating your group with reminders, praise and incentives. (see our article on Fun Run Incentives)
Get Paid – Once your fundraiser is over, we’ll send you a check for the total dollars raised less 18% of credit card donations.
