The Boston Museum of Science has launched a campaign to raise $ 2,500 needed for the reopening of the planetarium by asking it’s Facebook fans to donate to attend a fundraiser through the application Fundrazr .
This quick and effective tool, launched by Paypal (the most used international payment method) allows you to manage donations, making fund-raising campaigns, but also sell tickets and manage membership fees.
This use of Facebook to raise donations can promote philanthropy among the younger audiences. With its low cost and simplicity, it is a really interesting method of raising micro-donations.
The Boston Museum of Science on Fundrazr accepts donations of $5 to $100. In exchange for their generosity, donors will receive tickets for shows at the planetarium, can attend ‘VIP’ events and a will be named on a plaque in the planetarium.
