When a campaign launches, there is usually a flurry of donations that come in fast and furious. In fact it can be somewhat overwhelming to experience endless email notifications (the FansRaise platform allows you to customize your alerts, from real-time, to a daily roll up, to weekly, etc). It's not uncommon for campaigns to reach 60-70% of goal within mere hours of being live.

All are welcome, of course, but we wanted to provide some additional detail around member contact lists, how we use them, and what seems to be working best in the world of high school band fundraisers.
