When we say *bazillion… well we really mean, much much better. The fundraiser is a multitalented unicorn who can do it all. Well at least that’s what everyone is looking at you thinks (no pressure. And wither that’ss exactly who you are OR you’re adopting the “fake it to make it approach we’ve got you covered for some of the best FREE online resources out there to make your everyday superhero routine go a lot smoother. Everything mentioned below I use on a daily base with GoRaise content, so you know its good.

For all your design requirements we would like to introduce,

CANVA

Content creation GoRaise
Canva is a free online design tool that connects you to thousands of designs, free images and ideas. Yes, it is completely free to use! I spend so much of my time using Canva, because unfortunately I am not blessed with incredible design skills. Those of you who are just like me, Canva is the simple way to create designs for absolutely anything. Think of that Facebook post you have scheduled in 2 weeks, wouldn’t it look so much nicer with a well thought out design or even photograph with the correct dimensions? There are several options within Canva for you to create designs that can fit into any of your marketing or day-to-day duties. Email marketing, posters, logos, social media profiles, you name it.
For all your free and legal imagery needs, and this can be a complicated area with the copyright thing, meet,

PIXELS

GoRaise imagery

I personally use Pexels on a daily basis to source many of my photos for content, marketing or even just to make my team smile after a long and boring email. There are however, a multitude of copyright free image sites but Pexels is hands down my favourite. You simply search for the type of image you are looking for and Pexels will do the work for you.

For all your spelling, punctuation and grammar this is a must have:

GRAMMARLY

Spell check GoRaise

Grammarly is a free plugin that you can download straight to your browser. We praise it’s capabilities in the office and continue to use it in all aspects of our work. Whether it’s simply writing an email or sending out a big email campaign, you can feel confident knowing that your grammar and spelling is constantly in check.

If mkaing more money for your cause is your bag, and let’s face it your a fundraiser so making more money is the number one goal then this is an absolute must,
