Hi, I’m CJ Friedrichs, a sales consultant here at Frazer. And today I want to talk to you about how crowdfunding can help your families raise money to pay for funerals.
Crowdfunding is a way for individuals to raise money for a cause or for a project by accepting donations from individuals who share the same passion for a goal. In the funeral home industry, more and more families are using crowdfunding as a way to raise money to help pay for funeral costs.
That’s why we added Tribute Crowdfunding as part of our Tribute Pay platform. It can be activated on a need-to-use basis, so it’s there for your families when they really need it.
We put an emphasis on making it easy for your families to use and to share. By simply activating crowdfunding, a Donate Now button will appear on the obituary and a Tribute Fund will be created. This is where families can see donations in real time, as well as monitor how close they are to fulfilling their goal.
Having the ability to contribute and view the obituary all in same place means less hassle for your families and it will drive more traffic to your website. Family members and friends can simply click the Donate Now button, decide how much they would like to contribute, then enter their payment information.
They also have the option to leave a message or donate anonymously. When someone donates, they have the option to share the campaign on their social media pages to encourage other family members and friends to contribute. This makes it easy for people to contribute and drives even more traffic to your website.
A big difference between Tribute Crowdfunding and a GoFundMe campaign is that your funeral home’s bank account is directly connected to the Tribute Pay platform. So you won’t have to go chasing down any individuals or any loved ones to ensure that those donations actually pay for your services.
