How do I write a great update?

Supporters love to hear how your project is going. Once they've pledged their time or money it's exciting to see how things are progressing.

While it's best not to bombard people with daily updates, it's important to send out messages when you achieve a major milestone or receive a fabulous pledge. Has a sports store donated equipment to your club? Let people know. Has an artist offered to paint a mural at your community garden? That's an inspiring update! Keep it short, clear and engaging; pictures of the latest development help.

Updates can also be used to rally support. If you're nearing your project deadline, and you're still not quite at your fundraising target, let your supporters know. It's a great way to motivate people to spread the message via social media – they're invested in seeing you succeed, and may help you along.
