Overcoming Common Challenges
Faced by Fundraising Teams
Fundraising is at the heart and soul of charities, empowering positive change in our communities. It's all about inspiring the public, encouraging them to embrace challenges and activities that generate crucial funds for your cause. However, fundraising teams often encounter a common hurdle: the lack of relevant materials and the hassle of manual processes involved in creating and distributing fundraising packs and materials to supporters. Does this sound familiar?
Take comfort in the fact that you're not alone. In this article, we'll delve into the top five struggles faced by fundraising teams when it comes to fundraising packs, and we'll explore a cost-effective solution that can help overcome these challenges.
The top five fundraising pack struggles faced by fundraising teams
- Time-consuming manual processes
Fundraising teams frequently find themselves burdened by time-consuming manual processes involved in sorting and distributing fundraising materials or even creating bespoke materials for certain supporters. From designing to printing, collating, and sending physical materials, these tasks drain valuable resources that could be better spent on impactful activities for the charity.
- Inefficiency and lack of scalability
Traditional methods of creating fundraising materials can be inefficient and limit scalability. As fundraising teams strive to reach a wider audience and expand their supporter base, managing the manual creation and distribution process becomes increasingly challenging. This leads to delays, potential errors, and missed opportunities to engage potential supporters.
- High costs and resource constraints
Printing and mailing physical fundraising materials often incur significant costs. Fundraising teams frequently face resource constraints and limited budgets, making it difficult to allocate funds and staff time towards creating and distributing materials. These financial and resource limitations can hinder their overall effectiveness.
- Lack of customisation and personalisation
To effectively engage supporters, fundraising materials need to be relevant to their event or activity. Sometimes, generic materials fail to resonate with supporters' activities, leading them to create their own posters out of frustration. Wouldn't it be great if you could offer every supporter a way to create relevant materials without having to design them yourself?
- Difficulty in tracking and analysing effectiveness:
When you send out a fundraising pack, do you know how much of it gets used? Don't worry, not many fundraising teams do. This often leaves supporters feeling frustrated, charities unsure of which materials are successful, and some materials simply ending up in the recycling bin. Moreover, without knowing which materials supporters are using, it's hard to reach out and offer assistance or gauge their level of engagement.
