Tips for fundraising as an introvert

When it comes to fundraising, there’s a method out there for each one of us. For those who are introverts, we’ve created a handful of tips to help create the perfect fundraising environment for you.

Work with your strengths

Many skill sets come along with being introverted, which can help make fundraising fun and easy. When addressing a challenge, those who are introverted tend to be more methodical and, as such, carefully consider the best approach. This is a great asset when fundraising as you are more likely to plan and execute an effective fundraiser.

Leverage online platforms

Using online platforms, such as email, social media and crowdfunding websites, to create and promote fundraisers is a great way to support your favorite charities. For example, you can create a Facebook fundraiser with just a few clicks. Fundraising has never been simpler. 

Develop your writing skills

It's helpful to tell a compelling story about what you are fundraising for and why it's important. And online platforms are a perfect venue to help you both develop your writing chops and share these stories. Storytelling can help people feel connected, which often elicits empathy and a desire to help others.

Consider hosting virtual events

If in-person events don’t fall within your comfort zone, hosting a virtual event is a great way to fundraise for St. Jude. Consider assembling a webinar or some sort of visual presentation for your audience to showcase what you're fundraising for and then create a fundraising challenge or activity to keep your audience entertained and focused on the goal.

Partner up with others

Teaming up with others is a great way to approach fundraising regardless of whether you are introverted, extroverted or somewhere in the middle. When you partner with others to meet a fundraising goal, work can be divided based on skill sets. Collaborative efforts also help to amplify your message, reaching even more potential donors. 

Why support St. Jude through fundaising

Children icon

Every child deserves a chance to live their best life and celebrate every moment. When you support St. Jude, you help give kids with cancer around the world that chance. Together, we can save more lives.
