Thread: SCINetUSA/JustADollarPlease Fundraising Tools

  1. #21
    Hope it works. I know you can't market passively. I had a site up that proclaimed all revenue from Amazon would go to research and that never got any traffic to speak of, but I did find CC looking at my server logs. For that, I was thankful.

    maglito,

    Sounds like an effective way to raise money but we don't want to turn CareCure into a fundraising website. It's purpose is to provide the community with information about care and curative therapies of SCI and other CNS disorders. We can use it to promote SCINetUSA and JustADollarPlease, so if you have any ideas please let me know. The more ways we raise money, the better.

    skeaman, I'm hoping in the near future Dr Young will be doing some high profile interviews to get exposure for SCINetUSA. Also, I have been recording his lectures to put out there after the new JustADollarPlease website is finished.

    I need your emails to add to our eBulletin list- jimbenn@rci.rutgers.edu

    I don't think allowing members recognition in their profile for donating to spinal cord injury research would change the purpose of the website. Only, allow people to get excited and join the movement when they see so many of their peers donating. This sounds more like promotion than changing the purpose of the site to me.

    OK, I just added SCINetUSA as my cause for my bithday on Facebook. My old platoon sergeant donated a token $25. She saw that 4.75% of each donation went to the donation processor and not the charity. Is there a way to do an automatic deposit from a bank account monthly? She'd prefer that. If not, to whom and where do donors address checks? BTW, she processes and deals with death payments and benefits for the Marine Corps. I could use the info rather quickly. You can email me or msg me on FB besides answering here.
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
