Nonprofit Fundraising Challenges:
How EASY Wireless Can Help
Nonprofits are faced with a lot of challenges; nonprofit fundraising is the biggest one.
No matter where you turn, someone is in need. People are hurting and struggling – and you know it. That’s why your organization exists – to fill a need that you are passionate about. And the truth is that if it wasn’t for organizations like yours, so many people would go without things vital to survival.
The trouble is that your work requires resources – funds to help you extend your hand to those who need it most. And those funds are getting harder to come by with the current state of the economy.
Common Nonprofit Fundraising Challenges
Though every nonprofit has its own unique challenges, there are some that impact all nonprofits. These include the following and more.
- Getting your message and mission out there: You can’t expect donations to pour in if no one knows you exist, of course. And they have to understand the value of your mission. It takes time to get the word out and build trust with donors.
- Competing with the economy: This can be one of the toughest challenges. Even people who normally donate can hit their own financial snags that make them tighten their purse strings.
- Competing with other nonprofits: You don’t want to take dollars away from others who are providing assistance, but you still need funds to keep your own mission going. To do so, you have to find a way to stand out among others.
- Generating funds while focusing on your core work: Somehow, you have to address all of the challenges listed above without taking time away from your mission. If you spend most of your time generating funds, you don’t have much time to put those funds to use.
How About An EASY Solution to Your Challenges?
We salute you and the work you do, which is why we’ve created an EASY solution to your nonprofit fundraising challenges. Our EASY Affiliate Program is designed to help you bring in the funds you need with little to no effort on your part.
Who We Are
We are EASY Wireless. And like you, we want to help those in need the best way we know how. Our mission is twofold:
1. To support you in your nonprofit endeavors and
2. To help those in need receive the assistance they deserve.
We do this by bringing free communication through ACP and Lifeline programs to households that struggle with communication expenses. There’s often a misconception that, since cell phones are so easily accessible, anyone can get one. However, many people are unaware that a cell phone bill for just one person can easily cost over $100 per month. This can be a struggle for many households. Yet having a cell phone is a necessity in our day and age.
At EASY Wireless, we want to help put an end to the communication struggle by bringing assistance to every single qualified household. But also like you, we can’t do it on our own. We need help spreading awareness of this incredible opportunity. And that’s where you come in.
How Does It Work?
It really is EASY. It starts with a simple application. From there, we’ll send you everything you need to succeed, including:
- A welcome kit
- A referral code that is generated specifically for your organization
- Access to branded materials to use
- Access to your very own dashboard to keep track of your earnings.
All you need to do is share your code, and there are many ways to do this. You can keep it as simple as hanging a poster on your wall or putting a flyer into bags of goods that you give out.
You can also share it on your social media pages, add it to your own blog posts, or create videos to share the message. You get to choose how to share the message and how much “work” you want to put into it. We have no quotas you need to fill and there is no selling involved in the process. You just get your code and our message out there.
When someone uses your referral code and successfully enrolls through our website, your organization gets $15. That’s it! And if you ever need help, we’re here for you.
Who Can Sign Up?
Anyone is welcome to apply for our affiliate program and benefit from EASY fundraising, including but certainly not limited to:
- Food banks and pantries
- Thrift stores
- Low income support groups
- Family assistance programs
How Your Nonprofit Benefits
The following are just some of the benefits you'll find with our program.
You Can Generate Limitless Funds Without Endless Work
The amount you can earn is not capped. As long as the ACP and Lifeline programs exist and you are a member of our affiliate program, you can continue to earn.
And those earnings are basically on auto pilot. After your initial sign up, you determine how you’ll share your code and put those avenues to work. From there, your only job is to track your earnings.
Those earnings can be quite substantial, too. You can use our affiliate program to supplement your other fundraisers, or you can use it as a main resource.
Let’s say you need to earn $10,000 in 12 months for a specific mission. That breaks down to $833.34 per month. To raise this amount, you need only 56 people to sign up successfully through your referral code. Think that sounds a bit high? Take a look at the next benefit.
You’re Filling Another Need
Your organization exists to help those in need. Even if it seems a bit strange, having cell phone service is a struggle for more people than you might think. Approximately a fifth of American adults don’t have a phone at all. And nearly 50% of those that do can’t afford their monthly phone bill.
In short, this means that by sharing our message and mission, you are helping over 50 million people get access to free cell phone service and more than 100 million take a large financial burden off their shoulders. This might not have been the mission you had in mind when you started your organization. However, it is one that you can play a vital role in while funding your own mission.
There’s No Guilt Necessary
When you sign up for our EASY Affiliate Program, you can put any guilt you might normally feel to the side. Why? You’re not competing with any other nonprofits for donations. You are providing a necessity to people – that’s it. The ACP and Lifeline programs are funded by the government.
When someone signs up through your referral code, the money comes from those government funds – not donor’s pockets. And even better, you’re not selling something to those in need. You are helping to fill a need – one that they don’t have to pay for.
How Your Community Benefits
In addition to having access to more of the assistance you offer, your community members that sign up through your referral code receive a SIM Kit with:
- FREE Unlimited Data
- FREE Unlimited Talk
- FREE Unlimited Text
This helps keep families connected while eliminating expensive phone and internet bills. And people can sign up under you to also become an affiliate member. They’ll earn money for each successful enrollment through their code – and so will your organization. Not only will this increase your funds, but also help families generate additional income.
