Make giving easy and fun so donors give more.
Do you encourage giving?
When donors are present at an event or visiting an online campaign they are ready to support your mission. You could be leaving money on the table if you don’t ask at the right time or don’t make it easy to give.

You’re never alone with CausePilot as your co-pilot.
Make sure you ask.
It’s about making it easy to give from anywhere.
Whenever you invite people to your campaign always invite them to give and provide an easy way to make a donation in the amount of their choosing.
At an event, ask your speaker to offer guests the opportunity to help specific amounts and let the paddles raise. Write them down or enter as they are received.
Encourage supporters to give at checkout, especially if they won auction items and paid less than they were willing to. It’s your last chance to ask.
