All charities and independent volunteers have their own groups and communities on social networks. On the pages in the groups they report on their work, share news, post requests for assistance. Volunteering and charity require full transparency, otherwise it will not trust such people and organizations. If we are talking about the collection of funds, the organization must have an impeccable reputation, and to confirm its activities in a permanent record. Moreover, the financial report of the charitable funds should be published every year. We are talking about a mandatory audit of non-profit organizations. All other reports on the expenditure of funds are published at the request of the management. But any contributor and the sponsor shall have the right to make an individual request for a financial report.
Today in Russia is registered more than 150 charities .
Assistance in network
Unfortunately, the realities of life are such that major surgery, to help the poor, to support orphans and to feed the stray animals have to collect money from the world. And social media covering the largest audience of active users, these things are very helpful. Requests for assistance appear there regularly. But we must not forget that swindlers in the network is sufficient. Charities when publishing posts requests must comply with the mandatory conditions. All registered nonprofit organizations must have an official website with contact information, Bank details and electronic payment systems, information about the management and staff, copies of registration documents. Thus it is possible to confirm its official activities in the eyes of potential donors.
The popularity of online
For example, the Foundation collects funds for the construction of a Playground at the orphanage. Before the rally you must select contractors and prepare the final estimate for the construction. Information about fundraising you must first publish on its official website. The article is necessary to specify for what the orphanage collected money that will build, put a copy of the estimate and a photo of the place where will stand the new site. After that, the news should be "reposted" in all the social networks where the Fund community. As practice shows, most of the responses are in the networks Vkontakte and Facebook. A little worse for LiveJournal − it is convenient only to publish reports and draw attention to promotions and events. After posting a post with a request for help ask all your friends to copy news on your page. So you can attract more attention, and therefore money.
All the rules
The most critical issue of fundraising is a method of transferring money. The main legal means of obtaining funds the Fund is a Bank account. However, for many philanthropists like this method of funds transfer is not very convenient. There are also many who have to go to the Bank and stand in line, someone does not want to pay a fee for the transfer of funds from one Bank to another. Others fear of tax deductions. Although according to the law, a charitable donation (as a recipient and sender) to any tax exempt. It is necessary to observe only one rule: in the column "purpose of payment" please indicate that this donation. You can, for example, to write that this is a donation for the construction of the Playground. Then, in this case, the Fund will not be able to spend the money on something else. The same applies to electronic money and wallets.
Sms-service to help
The most popular way of collecting funds are chargeable sms message. Charity draws up a contract with your cell provider (or intermediary) for the provision of premium short codes sms service. At the conclusion of the contract stipulates the purpose of the numbers, the percentage (or lack thereof) for mediation services. The convenience of this method of fundraising is that the money is then immediately transferred to the account of the Fund in the recruitment of a certain amount.
To justify the confidence
To raise money to volunteers is difficult, and volunteering in Russia is not regulated by law. Trust only cause those people who work on behalf of nonprofit organizations. And if anyone of the donors there was any doubt, he may call the Fund and ask about this man. After the fundraiser be sure to publish the report. It is necessary to specify how much money is collected, what they spent (with copies of estimates, receipts, certificates of the executed works). Be sure to make a photo report.
