How-to: Use QR Codes to Promote Your Fundraisers

Give donors easy access to your fundraisers with QR codes.

QR codes give donors a direct link to your fundraising pages and Activity items simply by scanning the codes with the cameras on their mobile devices. This makes it easier for donors to find your fundraisers and gives you more promotion opportunities.

    • Add the QR code to flyers, videos, or other promotional materials to increase your fundraiser’s reach.
    • Add the QR code to your organization's website so donors can access your fundraisers right away.
    • Create hybrid fundraisers that combine in-person events with online functionality
    • Display QR codes at your in-person event so people can buy raffle tickets, sale items, and more.
    • Take payments online to simplify the donation process.
  • Enhance your Auctions
    • Use QR codes instead of bid sheets during in-person silent Auctions to reduce administrative work for event organizers.  
    • Promote specific Auction items that have a low number of bids, are only available for a limited time, or are specialty items.
