What Inspires To Donate? Five Ways to Encourage People to Give More

Ways to Encourage People to Give More

Donating is a great feeling. It gives you a sense of satisfaction and selflessness, which can be motivating for your employees or students. But there are ways to make even more people donate their time and money, especially if you want them to give more than just money.

Here are five ways that inspire people to donate more:

Donating is motivating!

Donating is a great way to help others. It makes you feel good, and it can be fun!

Many people donate because they want to help others. This is especially true if the cause is important and personal, such as cancer research, veterans or homeless shelters in your community. If you’re interested in supporting causes like these but aren’t sure how much money would be enough for what they need, consider setting up an account with PickUp Please (a nonprofit organization that Help make a difference in the lives of America’s Veterans and their families today.).

The organization has been working on long-term poverty solutions, so they have experience in providing financial assistance for those who need it most—and all this work takes place within one of the most efficient organizations I’ve ever seen: PickUp Please works very closely with partners like local governments and nonprofits so that donations go directly where they’re needed most quickly.

To give more, you have to feel like the cause is important

Ways to Encourage People to Give More

There are many reasons why people donate. Some of them have to do with the sense that they are making a difference and helping others. Others want their donation to be used for something specific, like helping animals or saving the environment. Whatever your reason is, it’s important that you make sure it resonates with people who could benefit from your organization’s work—and if you can inspire them in any way: even better!

To give more, all you need is an idea of what inspires people and then find ways to incorporate those ideas into everything you do as an organization or business owner (or both).

There’s more to giving than just money

If you want to encourage people to give more, don’t just tell them that it’s important. Show them how much they mean to others and why they should give back in any way possible.

  • Give your time: Help a friend out by offering to pick up groceries or do their laundry for the week.
  • Give your skills: Find something you know how to do well and offer it for free or at a low cost—or even at no cost! This could be anything from cleaning someone’s yard and painting their house (which is always fun!), cooking dinner for someone who lives far away (and may not have an oven) or tutoring children in math and reading at home rather than sending them off somewhere else where they’ll be picked on all day long by other kids while getting taught very little useful information about those subjects themselves

Establish Trust

When doing some donation drive, you have to be able to establish a trust where the money or goods  is going and how it will be used.

To build trust with donors:

  • Make sure your organization has clear policies for accepting donations and how those donations are used. This includes explaining what happens with the money after it’s collected (such as where it’s spent), who makes decisions about how that money should be spent, why certain things are important enough for people to donate at all and what kinds of projects/efforts require funding from sources outside the organization itself.
  • Show donors how their money is being used effectively—and communicate this information in an engaging way so potential supporters feel confident about supporting something that seems like a worthwhile cause (even if they don’t know much about specific causes). For example: If you’re raising funds for a fund-raising event or cause related to health care access because some people don’t have access anymore because they couldn’t afford insurance premiums after losing jobs due other economic factors beyond their control (like hurricanes), explain why now might be an opportune moment for raising awareness around these issues so people can donate accordingly without feeling guilty about contributing when there could potentially still be even worse outcomes down road.”

To give more, you need to know your money isn’t being wasted on things like fundraisers and advertising

It’s important to remember that you can’t just ask people to give more. If they’re giving a certain amount, they will keep doing it until they run out of money. Fundraising events and advertising campaigns are not effective in getting people to donate because they don’t work on a long-term basis; instead, they’re just an illusion of success that leaves donors feeling empty and dissatisfied with their contributions.

When I talk about “donating” money, I’m not talking about donating money; rather, I mean contributing time or resources toward a cause—whether through volunteering or volunteering at an organization like PickUp Please. When we donate our old things like clothes and furniture directly out of pocket at these events (which is what most fundraisers do), we make an investment in something bigger than ourselves: our own community!

You are also a charity when you give away your things

When you donate your things, your time, money and blood to charity, you are also donating to the cause. Donating your things helps more people than just yourself because they can be used by others who need them more than you do. When someone loses their job or has a medical emergency, they may have fewer resources available to them than they did before becoming unemployed or sick. This is why donating even small amounts of money can make such a big difference in helping others get through tough times.

You can also donate time by volunteering at an organization that helps people who need it most–for example, volunteering at a food bank so that hungry people don’t go hungry anymore!


We hope these tips will help you get more people to donate to your cause. The best part is that if you have a great idea, we can help make it happen!
