The cast and crew of NBC’s supernatural drama “Grimm” hosted the second Grimm Gala on Feb. 16, raising $386,000 for the endowment that “Grimm” actor Sasha Roiz established for Portland’s OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

The funds were raised from a combination of individual ticket sales, sponsorships, donations and an auction — which included “Grimm” props and limited-edition “Grimm”-customized Nike shoes, which were signed by both Michael Jordan and legendary Air Jordan designer Tinker Hatfield.

Tap Into Who You Know for Must-Have Fundraising Incentives

The cool fundraising incentives offered to anyone supporting the Grimm Fundraising Gala show the types of resources celebrities can pull together for the causes they care about. But what do you do if your organization isn’t closely associated with the cast and crew of a popular TV show with a huge fan following?

Just because you don’t have TV or movie stars on your board or donor rolls doesn’t mean you don’t have your own valuable network of people who you can tap into, especially on social media.

Post a photo or short video on Facebook as your call to action and include a keyword and shortcode that followers can use to link to your mobile-friendly survey form. You can easily create and customize your form in minutes to capture ideas or actual commitments for fundraising incentives.

On LinkedIn, you can ask your direct connections for help or for introductions to others who might be able to provide you everything from fundraising incentives, in-kind donations, entertainment and emcee options that can make your gala event one your attendees will never forget.

Summary: Tap into your social media connections to help you find and acquire fundraising incentives for your upcoming gala or other events and make it easy for them to support your cause with mobile-friendly forms they can easily access via a text keyword and shortcode.
