We would like to offer you some of our best FREE tools to assist you as you go through your journey toward parenthood. These free tools have been customized for couples who are registered in our program and our testimonials prove that these tools are crucial to your success in meeting your fundraising goal. Upon registered into our program, you were given access to this Tools for Families portal and we want to encourage you to access every one of these valuable opportunities that will assist you in motivating your contributors to support your efforts toward parenthood.
Enable Electronic Donations
You can provide your support system with an option to donate online via our secure server host, PayPal. This is powerful because it offers a fast and easy way to get everyone in your social network - including family, friends, and coworkers - to chip in. When a donor contributes through PayPal, the money usually appears in your account within minutes and you can even accept payments from around the world. Your donors do not need to have a PayPal account of their own in order to donate. They can use all major credit or debit cards. Another benefit to this is that you can keep track of all of your electronic donations along with the information of the donors in one place. There are no monthly fees or set-up fees in order to establish this, however there are transaction fees (between 2.5% and 5%) associated with PayPal donations. The process is easy. Simply send us your HTML button code and we will add it to the letter we have publicized to your webpage. You may need to set up a PayPal account. (Questions? Call 888-221-1161.)
Add a Donation Tracker
A donation tracker is a great way to keep your support system informed as to the progress of your financial goal. As your donation tracker is updated, people will see how far away you are from your goal and will be motivated to get you closer to that goal. If you would like to take advantage of this tool, all you need to do is fill out a short form, and we will do all the work for you. Once you do this, we will post the donation tracker to your story for you. (Please note that we cannot add a donation tracker with an amount of $0. We welcome you to add a donation tracker after you have begun your fundraising. To restart your donation tracker back to the beginning, a fee may apply.)
Add a Thank You Chart
Showing public appreciation to those who have already assisted you can motivate other potential donors to assist; as well, it can motivate those who have already donated, to donate again. You can make a list which consists of names, monetary donations, and in-kind donations (such as hosting a fundraising event), or you can make a list which consists of names only. As time progresses, you can send us updates and we will add the information to your Thank You Chart. If you would like to take advantage of this tool, all you need to do is fill out a short form, and we will do all the work for you.
Update Your Story
Life happens and we understand that your circumstances may change as you pursue parenthood through fundraising. As well, you may be progressing in your fundraising to the point where you feel it is necessary to update your supporters. Simply send us an updated letter and we will be happy to publicize the changes for you.
Extend Your Donation Period
If your donation deadline is nearing and you have not yet completed your financial goal, you may wish to extend your deadline. In order to do this, you will need to submit your request before your donation deadline has passed. All you will need to do is fill out a short form and we will then publish the new date to your story on the web.
