Why Charities are getting it all wrong! Matching Passion to Charity


Why Charities are getting it all wrong!  Matching Passion to Charity 

When Non profits raise money, they send out mails, emails and hold events/parties to people who
are concern about their Specific Cause- for eg. cancer survivors for cancer, heart patient families regarding heart problems, or pet lovers for saving homeless animals etc etc.

You get the point.


Is this truly how one would look to raise serious, big money?


The true one way to raise the big bucks is through Passion. Or Hobbies.


In the marketing world, we are constantly pushing or pulling customers.

With Passion/hobbies or affinity marketing, that effort is minimal for impulse buying or giving.
Because the enthusiasm is already there. All u need, is a little tilt.

For eg., u dont have to remind a tennis enthusiast to play tennis on the weekends.  He will play no matter what. No asking necessary. In fact, he will pay you to play, rain or shine.


Or a golf maniac to play golf. No pleading necessary.

Or a avid chess player to play chess. No cajoling either. He will probably go on medication if he dont. (a joke, clearly)


So the ultimate strategy in non profit fundraising or fundraising in any kind is to link Passion/hobbies to charity theme. It doesnt matter what cause u are promoting. Cancer, heart, earth, animals, hunger etc etc.

Its simply not going to matter.
The key is to structure meaningful, memorable, fun  events or parties related to specific passion, hobby/affinity grps.

For eg, a autographed party by a famous chess pro where attendants play and mingle. And then donate.

Or a tennis party with a kids tennis seminar by John Mcenroe.

These u dont need to push much. Or pull much. The desire is already there for the enthusiasts.

 To attend.
Play.
Party.
 Mingle.
Laugh.
 Give.
 And not watch some somber video  and cry.

And perhaps they will give  very big. Especially if they have an awesome fun time, for them and their families, with memories lasting them a life time.


So lets get sober, throw out those somber videos- and start linking Passion to your charity Cause.
