How To Get TEENS Involved With Your Fundraiser | Fundraising Tips


Are you having trouble getting your teen involved with your fundraiser or getting involved with the community at all? In this video I’m going to give you three tips of How To Get Your Teen Involved with your Fundraising Efforts. Right now! Hi, I’m Kristy with funds2orgs, and if you’ve never been here before every week we post new videos with tips and tricks about helping your fundraiser. In this video of our How To series, We’re discussing how to engage teens and get them involved with your fundraising efforts. Now we know it can be difficult to get teens motivated to do…anything. So I’ve got three tips for you. Tip #1 Offer Them Something Now this doesn’t have to be monetary, for example: if you’re a parent you can offer your teen a reward for helping with the fundraiser, such as extending their curfew one night or Giving them car privileges or even letting them sleep in on the weekend. Those were the days… Tip #2 Ask Them For Social Media Help Now, maybe you’re already a super tech-savvy parent or teacher. However kids will always know what’s hot and new on social media. They know how to promote and help spread a message in a way that few others can manage. Ask them how to help promote your fundraiser through social media, ask them what ideas they might have. Today’s generation of youth is among the FIRST to be fully immersed in the digital world from an early age. Meaning, they know how to mobilize their friends and community with social media to get support for a cause. Tip #3 Give Them Responsibilities Have them manage a project within your fundraiser. So if you’re doing a shoe drive fundraiser with funds2orgs, have them manage something within that such as, maybe they’re in charge of managing and reporting the bag count, or maybe they can be in charge of having a bagging party every week. By giving them responsibility, you’re helping teens to develop skills around leadership, organization team-building. All of these are core competencies and a huge learning experience for them to take on to the next chapter of their life. So what’s the benefit of having teens involved? Organizations and leaders that understand the importance of engaging youth in their activities have a higher level of success and engagement because they understand that teenagers can become amplifiers for their cause. Involving them in your community efforts can create various win-win situations for both the teens and the organizations involved. Plus you will be helping out the next generation of our leaders!
