In the age of online meetings and digital communities. You may be struggling to figure out how to raise money for your nonprofit, charity, event, or cause. Don’t worry! There are many opportunities for online engagement with your communities and audiences. Take a hint from the list below of commonly hosted events and let PayBee help your foundation realize its goals.
1. Virtual 5K or Fun Run
For fun and fitness, virtual races are a great way to get people out and active. Runners who are already training for a charity race might consider livestreaming their journey on the Paybee platform to further enhance participation and pair their running day with live donations. Multiple participants can be brought into the stream to share their own local course and race progress.
Paybee Virtual Gala hosts can livestream their run progress including live video feeds and chats. All participants can share their results while cheering on other racers and all the while donating to your good cause.
2. Product Fundraising
Consider fundraising by selling your foundation’s branded merchandise, with the proceeds going towards your good cause. Consider popular items such as facemasks, hats, frisbees, jackets, shirts, and beach tote bags to name a few.
With PayBee you can host live and silent auctions that can fully feature your products along with your foundation’s branding and your mission statement. Both features include a buy-it-now option for non-auction products with unique URL’s and built-in social sharing links, making the process of spreading the word about your auction items seamless.
