Ideas for how to promote your cause
The more members that chose to donate their 1% to your cause, the more funding your project will receive.
You should encourage members to choose you as their cause by promoting your project online, on social media and in your community.
If you have a website, add a link to your cause’s unique profile page so members can easily find you and choose to donate their 1% to you.
Save the Co-op logo jpg (34kb) so you can use it when promoting your cause. Read about how you can and can’t use our logo in the logo brand guidelines pdf (3,887kb).
