There is no better way to spread news these days than on the Internet, and your fund-raiser is no exception. Internet fund-raising sites, like Crowdfunding or GoFundMe, are good places to start, but even with an online fund-raiser, you should set up a strategy and a strong message to draw attention to your sale.

A classic donation box should not be discounted as a way to raise a lot of contributions for your fund-raiser. As long as your box is eye-catching and strategically placed, it should be a big success! Try placing the box at a popular community hangout, like a pizza parlor, bookstore, or coffee shop. These places might even offer to match your donation. Also consider decorating your box, and including a message for why you are raising money to help attract patrons.
