Sharing Your Fundraiser

Fundraising has always been about numbers: the more people you can engage, the more you’ll raise. Boon Supply has developed a set of easy to use tools that make it simple for you to share your fundraiser and drive engagement. As the Fundraiser Chair, there are three ways for you to spread the word: Inviting Sellers, Boosting, and Sharing. 

You can take all of these actions directly from your Chair Dashboard, simply login to MyFundraiser and complete the steps below. 

Invite Sellers

Inviting sellers to join in your fundraising efforts and encouraging participation amongst them is the Chair’s most important job. We suggest making this the first stop in your sharing journey, because it allows others to join your efforts and share your fundraiser with their own networks. The wider you can cast your net, the better.

What to do: just click the Invite Sellers button on your Chair Dashboard. A window will appear with the options to share via Facebook, Twitter, email, or by copying a link that you can use everywhere. These options all direct your network to seller registration. 

Of course, there are several other ways to get sellers to join in on the fun. If you are leading a school fundraiser, be sure to check out these letters we’ve designed to get students to register as sellers. 

Boon’s Exclusive Boost Tool

Our most effective sharing tool is called Boost 10 - because all you need to do is enter the email addresses of 10 (or more) potential supporters in order to Boost your fundraiser to success. Then, we email your family and friends 3-5 times throughout the course of your fundraiser, asking for support on your behalf.

What to do: To start, click the Boost Now button on your Chair Dashboard. We’ll take you to your Fundraiser Landing Page, where you can enter email addresses for potential supporters, check the box to verify your age and consent, and Save. We suggest entering at least 10 email addresses for max impact. 

We strongly suggest that you utilize the Boost tool yourself, and encourage sellers to do so as well. Learn more about the power of Boosting.

Share, Everywhere

We’ve designed a sharing panel that offers several ways to easily share your fundraiser with potential supporters, each method with its own strengths. To access your sharing panel, click the Share Now button on your Chair Dashboard. 

Your sharing panel has four or five buttons, depending on the type of device you’re using. Each button directs potential supporters to your Fundraiser Landing Page, where they can Shop to Support, Register as a Seller, or share your fundraiser with their own networks. 

Here’s how each sharing method can help your fundraiser meet its goals: 

  • Facebook - This button will direct you to Facebook, where you will find an automated post with a graphic asking your friends and family to Shop to Support your fundraiser. Customize the message to your liking - we always suggest letting supporters know why the fundraiser is important to you. Fun fact: we’ve helped causes like yours raise millions of dollars through Facebook alone.
  • Twitter - The same functionality as the Facebook button, but perfect for asking for support in 280 characters or less.  Tweet, tweet! 
  • Email - The good ol’ fashioned way to send a personal message to a smaller group. When you use the sharing panel to share via email, you’ll have the link to your fundraiser all ready to go. Just adjust the message to your liking, add your contacts, and hit send. 
  • Text - The vast majority of the Boon Supply audience is on their phone, and we’ve designed the experience with that in mind. That means we’ve made it quick and easy to text your fundraiser to any contacts in your phone. Simply tap the Text It button, choose your recipients, and you’re off. Don’t forget to send to your group chats! Note: this button will only appear if you are accessing your sharing panel from a mobile device.
  • Copy Link - From here, share anywhere. Think big and try to spread the word in ways that make sense for your supporters, and your cause. Here are a few places to share your link just off the top of our heads: Instagram, Reddit, TikTok, Snapchat, Slack, Discord, Nextdoor, Pinterest, Clubhouse, Meetup, Houseparty, WeChat, Whatsapp, MeWe, and Yelp - the world is your oyster! Don’t forget to put the link in a visible spot on any of your social media profiles, so you can easily drive supporters to the link in your bio when you talk about your fundraiser. 

When you share your fundraiser, especially on social media, it’s great to include a personal photo that immediately tells your supporters what your fundraiser is all about. For example, use a picture of the new gym your school fundraiser will help build, or the team you’re raising money for. But, if you don’t have an image that you love, we’ve designed some graphics for you to use instead. Find those images here, along with additional tools to help you spread the word. 

Anyone can do it! 

All of the tools that we’ve listed above (with the exception of Inviting Sellers) are available not just to you, but to anyone who knows about your fundraiser. We suggest letting your family and friends know that sharing your fundraiser is a great way for them to support you and your cause, even if they are unable to make a purchase on your behalf. Then, simply direct them to the easy to use sharing tools on your Fundraiser Landing Page. 

Reminder: get the link to your Fundraiser Landing Page by clicking the Share Now button on your Dashboard, and then the orange Copy Link button.
