Blockchain technology is not going to magically make online donations easier, it is trying to make the road towards more interesting new forms of charity fundraising. Charity fundraising risks involves being left alone in the shift to online activity. Learning from the Covid-19 pandemic trends and the latest payment technology could help in gaining some opportunities. Change comes even if you’re ready for it or not but being ready means that you are prepared to seize the opportunity. The past year has increased the pace of digital transformation dramatically. Even though personal contact was moving online, and contactless payments were replacing cash the pandemic did not exactly push the world quicker and up to a point that no one expected this would happen. This resulted in some challenges for the nonprofit sector and with that some extra possibilities.
Charity events and street fundraising are two important traditional revenue streams which have been strongly reduced due to the pandemic. Nonetheless, lockdown has unlocked some beneficial creative attitude such as the 2.6 challenge in which sports and fundraising agencies requested the public to create and introduce their own challenges to fill the space left by the London marathon. For instance, let’s consider how Captain Tom Moore created over 32 million euros ($44 million) by simply walking around his garden. This simply proves how an individual’s effort and hard work could drive even more stronger engagement than a marathon. When supporters will be able to see the inspiration behind each challenge, they will feel motivated. This is entirely based on the strength of an excellent narrative and originality. To stand out among other attention-grabbing narratives and to achieve the sense of giving out positive affirmations is really important to strengthen the idea of keeping it personal and keeping it relatable.
Even though huge moments like this capture the essence and attract a ton of drive contributions, charities need plenty of donations and a well-connected fundraising for their financial health. It is really important that organizations change one-time donors into supporters who are involved and committed to sharing their moto with the entire world. Online fundraising may seem particularly effective at this task mostly due to the power of a strong narrative. Based on a research, at least 57% of people who go one to watch a fundraising video continue to make a donation. With this just imagine how much more could be generated. A charity or activist website can turn a place for helpers and the helped alike to share their experiences, their intentions and the effect of their actions. There are plenty of questions wandering around such as how are individual online actions able to transform into something bigger? How can online social tools build a company? Also, how to mobilize a social-class that doesn’t trust the established groups to do the right thing once the donations have been made, or believes that agenda should only be made by the biggest donor?
Transparency and responsibility are becoming more and more demanding in all areas of life. Young people are curious about their influence in today’s world. They need to see a track record of strong action mixed with responsible management and they will spread the word for you. Explain what resources are required and how they can be put into use. Groups who use social media and other universal tools that are readily accessible and understand will be best placed to win the trust and loyalty of the generations that are entering the prime of their life.
One should understand the main aspects of payments. The process of making a donation online be a bit tricky for some. Donors are required to complete a detailed form and should provide their name and other methods of contact. This random act of kindness can be misunderstood as more and more demands are made of people who imagine that their personal information is being stored in a database. Blockchain technology is capable of making this process easier. If a charity website created a micropayment layer that allowed donors to give any amount with the click of a button with no forms to fill out or no personal information to give out wouldn’t your mind eventually go to the idea of unlocking goodwill, not to specifically mention giving? This has a chance of happening. Once the tech has achieved acceptance from all over it wont stick to making online donations easier, it will instead pave the way for exciting new forms for fundraising. For instance, the ice bucket challenge donations from social media phenomenon reached $115 million enabling the beneficiary, the ALS Association to doubling its funding for research into the disease. We can think of a free marketplace of information that drive fund towards the most crucial causes.
