FlipGive Stories Fundraising Tips

O Captains My Captains!

Jul 24 2017

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

O Captains. My Captains!

The good news is, you didn’t need an eyepatch nor did you have to be part of a secret private school poetry club to become a Captain on FlipGive. You have a natural knack to being a leader. Inevitably, it’s lead you here on this path to helping your Team raise funds by earning cash back for your online purchases. That’s something to celebrate!

To further your success, I want to introduce (or reintroduce) you to one of the most powerful tools you have available only for you, the Captain.

Trumpets please....

Captains, I’d like to present to you your new best friend on FlipGive, the More tab. This is where you’ll find all the great resources to lead a successful and more profitable campaign for your Team!  Here are a few things you’ll find:

  1. A report on your Team’s progress based on the goal.

  2. Payment info regarding how to withdraw your Team’s funds (this responsibility is given solely to you, the Captain).

  3. A Downloads section where you can find handy resources like a powerpoint presentation that will make your FlipGive pitch as smooth as butter, printable handouts to pass around at the next PTA meeting and much more.

  4. A link to download our Cash Back Reminder Extension (I’m a little disappointed if you haven’t already).

  5. Tips on how to share the awareness of your Team, because sharing is caring.

So there you have it Captains, a quick summary of the resourceful tools that are already living within FlipGive. The more active your Team becomes, the more engaged they will remain, which means the more shopping deals you can take advantage of to reach your goal! Continue to motivate your Team, encourage them to use the Team Shopping List and keep the conversations going!

I’m rooting for each and every one of you!

Your Friendly Neighborhood Fundraising Coach,

Alam Song
