8 Reasons to Raise Funds Through Your Wedding Website
Use Your Wedding Website to Raise Funds for a Good Cause
What better way to celebrate your wedding than to raise funds for your favorite charity? Rally friends and family around your cause, citing your relationship with the chosen organization and providing compelling photos and links.
Pay it Forward
Use your wedding to shine a light on the importance of developing strong ties to the community and to highlight the importance of giving back when you are celebrating a time of good fortune. Become a leader in your community and galvanize your friends to follow your example.
Ask for Donations Instead of Gifts
Many couples today live together before they are married and so don't need many of the household items that were traditionally given at a wedding. Instead of linking to a registry or having guests buy gifts, use your website to solicit donations for your wedding reception, honeymoon, or for your favorite charity.
Donate to Your Favorite Charity Instead of Giving Wedding Favors
Inform your wedding guests ahead of time (on your website) that you will be donating to your favorite charity on their behalf instead of buying wedding favors. Activate your Donations Page in case any guests would like to add an additional contribution.
Reach Your Goal Faster
Most people find it easier to donate online, where they can read information about your cause and then quickly pay with a credit card. This is much easier than writing a check, buying stamps and then mailing it in.
Collect Donations More Easily
You can choose to receive payments (payouts) from MyEvent.com whenever you want. You can select your own payout threshold and we will pay you each time you reach this amount. You will never have to chase donors for payment from checks or credit payments that didn't go through.
Promote Your Cause Online
When you promote your event or cause online using social media such as Twitter, Facebook or the online edition of your local newspaper, include a link to your website. In your message, mention that people can safely and easily donate online via your website.
Enjoy Toll Free Help
MyEvent.com offers Live Toll Free Customer Support, 7 Days a Week. If -for any reason- any of your donors are having trouble completing their transaction, we'll be there to help.
