How can I keep track of who donated as a result of my outreach?

Keeping track of who has contributed and who you need to follow up with in your campaign is important. So, if you’re wondering “How can I keep track of who donated as a result of my outreach?” then just know that you will receive a notification email every time someone donates as a result of your outreach. You can also log on to your Fundraiser page and see a list of all the donors (except those who chose to remain “Anonymous”).

How do I become an advocate?

If you’re wondering “How do I become an advocate?” Then, first, thank you for your support! The best way to help is to promote the campaign to your family, friends, and professional network by signing up to be an Advocate/Fundraiser, or by creating/joining a Team.

By signing up to be a Fundraiser, you can create your own page to describe why this campaign is important to you personally. Alternatively, create a Team and invite others to join. This is a great option if you want to bring together a particular group of individuals to raise funds collectively – for example, to support a specific element of WAIE.

Even if you don’t register to be a Fundraiser, we encourage you to share with your family, friends, and professional network through email or social media. You can click the Facebook, Twitter, and email icons in the top right corner of any campaign donation landing page to generate a post. Feel free to use this as a base, but include specific language you think will mobilize your network.
