9 Sneaky Social Cues You Can Use For An Epic Fundraising Event [SLIDESHARE]

Ah, galas...

That staple of nonprofit development strategies. Both beloved and beleaguered. 

One of the reasons that events and galas can be effective is the fact they they're social. Your most engaged supporters are there with you, face-to-face. They're chatting, drinking, and taking in some entertainment. It's a prime opportunity to launch a campaign and start bringing in donations.

Here at WeDidIt, we're big fans of using mobile-responsive campaign pages on iPads at events, because the donation is instant. There's no hiding pledge cards under your plate. Once that iPad starts getting passed around the table with everyone making instant donations, the social pressure is on to make a gift.

We called that an atmosphere of shared responsibility.

How else can you create an atmosphere of shared responsibility? Check out the SlideShare below for 9 tips!
