  4. Set up an email campaign to inform everybody about the fundraising terms & conditions, and encourage your volunteers, workers, supporters, and donors to share information about the campaign.
  5. Regularly update the campaign page to make sure it mentions all the important details and changes to update your supporters and stimulate more donations.
