At some point in your fundraising, donations might slow down or you could lose your momentum. Fatigue is normal, so don’t be discouraged if you hit a lull! The most important thing is to find ways to stay motivated and keep the buzz going around your project. Here are a few tips:
- Update your donors. Post updates on your fundraising page to show donors how the campaign is going. Thank your donors with personal notes. You can contact them through your fundraising page, an email, or a handwritten letter (by far the most appreciated way!).
- Explore new ideas. Revisit the inspiration page to start thinking about new fundraising ideas.
- Collaborate. Post in the Impact Ambassadors Facebook group and ask fellow IA’s for advice. We’re all in this together!
