You may already be aware of our recent launch of Donater – A platform helping good causes use technology to receive contactless, cashless and mobile donations faster.
Through Donater we have been privileged to work with some amazing good causes already, one of which has recently been Superyachts Charity.
Fundraising can’t just stop. So many charities have had to find innovative ways to keep fundraising, many of them being online. Whilst we are still having to adhere to social distancing guidelines, fundraising events have largely been cancelled, but online fundraising is one way to keep donations coming in.
Superyachts Charity has done just this. They have set themselves a huge challenge to enable them to fundraise online for multiple charities, whilst still social distancing.
Turning Cancelled Events into Online Fundraising
Superyacht Charities 7C’s challenge is a relay type trial incorporating two events that they had to unfortunately cancel due to Covid-19. The challenge will see those taking part running, rowing and riding the 1,121 miles between Southampton and Palma – The 2 locations that were supposed to hold 2020 events. They’ve already raised over £13K from online fundraising in this way.
This challenge is just one brilliant example of how social distancing regulations don’t have to put fundraising on hold. Innovative initiatives like this prove just how effective and successful socially distanced, online fundraisers can be.
As we’ve seen over the last 6 months, there are so many great things we can do online to stay connected to others. Online fundraising is one of these.
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Superyacht Charities and being a small part of their fundraising success, by building their donations page and website for this extremely worthy fundraiser.
For more information on their fundraising challenge or to make a donation, you can visit their website here.
If you are planning a socially distanced, online fundraiser of your own then why not get in touch. Donater can provide you with an easy way to receive donations online via your own website.
