Webinar: Kickstarting your fall fundraising.

September 18, 2023

In this webinar, Zeffy’s Customer Success team shares a few tips and tricks on using Zeffy’s 100% free fundraising platform to get the most out of your nonprofit’s fall fundraising campaign.

We’ve broken down the webinar into sections for you, or you can watch the whole thing—we definitely think it’s worth a watch! Gaspard goes over why fall is such an important fundraising season, a few fall fundraising ideas and examples, advanced settings on Zeffy’s fundraising platform (early bird ticketing, multi-date, etc.), types of forms and when to use them, CRM tips for engaging and retaining donors (emailing, thank you letters, etc.), and Gaspard talks briefly about Zeffy’s free Tap-to-Pay app.

Why should your nonprofit plan a fall fundraising campaign?

  1. Most of us are back at home after our summer.
  2. It’s a good way for old and team members, volunteers, and donors to catch up and get to know each other.
  3. A great time to recruit new volunteers because of events like GivingTuesday.
