Fundraiser Invitations

You can quickly and easily invite any supporter to create a fundraiser. You can do this from the menu point 'Fundraiser invitations' in your dashboard.

 

You need to choose a project the fundraiser is being invited to, and enter a first and last name and an email. When you hit send, an email will go out to the fundraiser. You can see a list off all fundraiser invitations, and if they has been accepted, on the same page.

Note that an invitation is marked as accepted when a person clicks the email and clicks 'create fundraiser' on the landing page. In theory a person could leave the creation flow midway thereafter, and it would still be marked as accepted.

What text is in the invitation email?

White label / Branded customers

Here is the standard text for fundraiser invitations sent from a white label / branded subscription. Customers on the premium subscription can have the content modified (contact us). 

Note that it is signed by both the organisation and the person sending the invitation from the dashboard.
 
Sender:{{organisation_name}}
Subject: (A/B test) "An invitation to fundraise together with us" OR "Do you want to fundraise for {{organisation_name}}?"

Body: Hello {{first_name}} 

We would like to personally invite you to fundraise on our behalf. You will help us by sharing our message and encouraging your personal network to donate to {{organisation_name}}.

It takes less than five minutes to get started, and you will be guided with tips, tricks and help along the way. You can delete or end your fundraising page at any time.

Every year thousands of supporters create online fundraising pages supporting great causes, and we hope you will join this community of good-hearted men and women.

We are grateful for your time and effort. Without the help of amazing supporters like you, we would never be able to do the work we do!

Best Regards

Note: We do A/B split testing on subject lines, so standard subscription customers will experience variations in the subject line. In the example above are the subject lines we are starting with.

What if I need to invite lots of supporters?

We can do bulk invitations. Contact us at orgsupport@betternow.org for more information on how to do this. 

You can also send invitations through API calls. This is brilliant if you want to send invitations based on supporters e.g. entering a certain segment in your CRM system. Read the developer docs here or use  our Zapier integration.
