How do I set up challenges and matches?
Create a Personal Plea:
A personal plea is a short video in which you explain why you support the campaign and encourage others to do the same. Personal Pleas are accessed from the Advocates tab of the campaign page. Additionally, when you create a Personal Plea, you receive a direct link to your Plea that you can share with your network. When someone makes a donation directly from your Plea, it will be noted on the Advocates tab along with any other Advocate stats that you have generated (clicks, donations, etc.).
Offer a Matching Donation:
You can motivate others to give by creating your own matching donation or challenge. Maybe you would like to give $1 for every donor who gives to the project up to $100. Matching gifts like this will really motivate others.
Offer a Challenge:
Another option is to set a goal for others which, when accomplished, will earn an extra donation. For example, maybe you have made your gift, but you notice the campaign has slowed down. You could offer an additional $100 if donors give a total of $1,000 before the end of the day. This is another great way to inspire others.
Thank you for everything you do for St. Thomas and for helping make Tommie Give Day a success.
