College Fundraising Ideas

Whether you are fundraising online to go to college, for your college, one that is close to you, Piryx has compiled some great college fundraising ideas that are not only easy to do, but are proven to help raise more money online for you college fundraising needs!

Below are some great college fundraising ideas:

1. Set up a FREE Piryx account today

You can set up a college fundraising campaign very quickly and begin to raise money online in the same day with one or multiple college fundraisers.

2. Share your College Fundraising link(s)

There's a very good chance that many of your friends, family, co-workers, and other contacts in your social network, along with those who have donated to your college, are already using Facebook, Twitter, and at minimum have an email account.

Once your college fundraising donation page is completed, and as a first step, you can simply share your message with a link to your fundraising page with your social network via email, facebook, and twitter, along with posting links or even your college fundraising web page on your website or blog as well.

3. Optimize your College Fundraisers for Ultimate Success

Piryx offers a lot of free web and social media marketing tools, along with a very simple and easy to use analytics dashboard in order to help you make sense of rather complex information, so you can make better decisions for improving your college fundraising campaigns online.

One size often does not fit all, and we are aware of that here at Piryx. By using the free tools we provide, you can gain more insight into conversion rates on your donation page(s) and alter your messaging, design, and more. You can make better decisions off of the data provided in your dashboard, while understanding what is working great and what might need to be improved, and/or which of your donors give the most and who to contact more or less.

4. Allow your donors to Champion your cause

By sharing links with your donors for any one of your college fundraisers, you should encourage your donor base and other contacts to "share" your donation page links with their social network too. This will help you minimize your time allocated to fundraising, while allowing your social network to help fundraise on behalf of your college or to help you go to college.
