The future of fundraising is online. Not everything, of course -- a snack bar isn’t going to benefit (much) from posting on Facebook. But the benefits and efficiencies of using email, text, social media and various online platforms (like FanAngel) makes it a foregone conclusions that more and more funds will be raised digitally.
If you’re a booster parent or team coach, then you know all too well the vast amounts of time you’re losing to fundraising.

Others have tried with some success, but have no idea they likely left money on the table. This post exposes three major crowdfunding traps that are common. The post also explains how FanAngel circumvents these pitfalls, ultimately saving you precious money, time and energy.
