Tips on How to Write a Good Story

Share your story honestly

Describe the situation from your point of view. Tell people the facts about what happened, why you're raising funds, and how you feel.

Be transparent and clear about the funds raised

Break down how the money you raised will be used and where additional funds raised beyond your goal will go.

Talk about the recipient

If you're raising funds for someone else, explain who the recipient is and how you know them. Paint a complete picture for your audience about this person and why they're important to you.
Your story doesn't need to be lengthy to be compelling: two to three meaningful paragraphs can go a long way.

Donation Levels and How to Use Them

What are Donation Levels?

Donation levels are when a donation is incentivized with gifts, this makes the donation partially deductible and you have to declare the value of the gifts. For anything that is not for regular sale, or will not be ever, you can indicate that value of the raw materials used to produce the item.

Ideally, the value of the perk is much less than the total donation - you want your donors to get perks for giving, not make purchases. If you find that the value of your perks are matching or exceeding the total donation, you would need to raise the total donation or reconsider which perks you give away.

How Can I Add Donation Levels to My Fundraiser?
Donation Levels can be used in two ways: as a physical reward to incentivize your donors, or as a way to demonstrate the impact your donors can make by giving at that donation amount.


Using Donation Levels to Demonstrate a Donor's Impact
Donation levels are a great way to show how a donor can make a difference. For example, you can have a donation level priced at $25 that provides school supplies for students. If you're running a fundraiser for a friend, a $25 donation level could cover the cost of that friend's dinner while they're in the hospital. Donors will then know how they're contributing to the cause!

Using Donation Levels as a Reward

Material: Offer a piece of swag, like a t-shirt or mug, to spread the word about your nonprofit or personal fundraiser. 

Personal: An acknowledgement for donating, a social media conversation, a handwritten thank-you note or another kind of interaction between you and your donors.

Experiential: A unique experience, like tickets to your next public talk or an hour with you and your team in the field.

Include Images of Your Donation Levels in Your Story Text
Your donors will want to see what they’ll receive for supporting you. Be sure to use high-quality images to showcase your donation levels in the best light!
