Because Batman needs Robin, you should donate to fundraisers
What would Batman be like without Robin, right? That is a query that many someones ask. This is how fundraisers work. People who want to start a fundraiser to “support” a campaign already being run by someone they know can use a support-fundraiser to do so. For example, this could be an example: a close friend of yours has started a fundraiser on Impact Guru to help pay for their child’s medical care.
You can create a fundraiser to help your friend reach their goal by getting money from your friends and family. The money you raise on your support fundraiser will be added to the funds raised on the primary fundraiser. It helps a campaigner, especially if a family member grows cash for a medical patient if two or more people decide to help them. Plus, the more shares the fundraiser gets on social media, the more people see it, which leads to more money.
Having more channels covered
If you’ve already shared it on WhatsApp and Facebook, but you don’t have a Twitter or Instagram account, you can still talk about it. Your support campaigners can help you raise money through channels you might not have thought of. This way, you can reach more and different people through each medium or channel, which can help you raise more money.
Some people want to help
A support-fundraiser is almost the same as the primary fundraiser regarding how it works and looks.
A support-fundraiser will have these things:
- A different title shows how you are connected to the cause or the ill person. I need your help to pay for my friend’s father’s treatment or help me teach 2000 kids with the Magic Bus Foundation.
- Different pictures or videos show how you feel about the person or the cause.
- Set your goal amount. As a support-fundraiser, you can help raise some goal amounts.
- Write your own story about why you want to help the cause or person and add your pleas for money.
How do you make a support-fundraiser?
There is a dialogue box when you click on the support-fundraiser option. The box says, “Create a support-fundraiser to help the cause.” You can start a support-fundraiser by giving your name, email address, and phone number, as well as the amount you want to raise.
Suppose your friend needs to raise Rs. 5 lakhs. If you want to help, you can start a support-fundraiser to raise Rs. 10,000 or more to help the primary campaign, like this: As soon as you finish setting up a support-fundraiser, your name will appear in the bottom right corner of the screen. To get to the main fundraiser page, click on it. It will be linked to your support fundraiser.
How to use assistance fundraisers the right way
People who work for non-profit groups are always looking for help because their projects are significant and could use more hands. When you see NGO fundraisers trying to raise money for big projects, like giving poor kids education or building a healthcare center, you should set up a support fundraiser to help them out. To help out the NGO, you should raise money for them. Volunteers already have to run the organization, so you should help them out.
For health reasons

For projects that aren’t just for fun
There are many ways to help raise money for creative causes like filmmaking, theater, and more! People who make movies always look for people to help pay for their films and many of them can not even start working on them due to money. Some people use crowdfunding to raise funds for a wide range of things, like paying for film equipment, paying actors, marketing, the cost of travel, and so on.
Helping filmmakers and their crew members raise the enormous amount of money they need to start a film, especially if it’s going to be a feature presentation, is something you can do. As long as enough people go to their plays, theater groups can stay in business. But theater groups can also use crowdfunding to make sure they get enough money. It can be beneficial for these groups to have a support fundraiser to help them reach their goal amount.
To help start-ups,
A support-fundraiser is the best way for you to help an early-stage start-up or a big business that wants to do something big. Suppose someone you know has been working on a project. You can start a support fund to help them.
These people could use some help because they’d be too busy with their projects to keep track of their fundraisers. Starting a support fundraiser for small businesses is also a good idea because these businesses are always in need of money to do certain things, pay their employees, and grow in the future.
For projects that are for personal use or college
When you want to help someone, you can use support fundraisers to help them out. They can help them finish their projects. In this case, you could start a support-fundraiser for your friend who wants to go to school in another country and pay a lot for it. The same is true for someone who wants to finish an expensive college project, a long science assignment, and so on.
