The numbers you have in your group are your largest asset. Let's say you have a group of 100 musicians in your ensemble. That would be 100 different networks that you can potentially use to promote your campaign, and instead of one campaign page doing all the work, with FansRaise you have 100 individualized versions* of the page that will be broadcasted via social and email.
* Participant campaign pages are what we call 'lightly customized' in that they contain the members' name and profile image, should they choose to upload one.
In terms of considering numbers, the most logical thought is "How many donors can each student find?". Reasonably speaking, that number ought to be 3-5 provided that the students are engaged and guided towards thinking about what friends, family, neighbors, and other connections would make a potential donor.
Now, go back to your ensemble of 100 participants. Let's say you AVERAGE 2 donors per student (which is actually lower than we'd like, but let's use it).
200 donations averaging $50 per donation would net this group $10,000, and there are DISTINCT ways and means to increase your average donation significantly. These ways and means comprise some of the "secret sauce" that we discuss in our $10,000 Blueprint which is serving as a campaign roadmap for ensembles all across the country.
