How it works

Odommo Bangladesh Foundation

Online Fundraising Through OBF Fundraising platform

Start a Campaign: Sign-in or register to OBF’s website and create an online fundraising campaign by filling in the required details. After that, we will review your campaign and publish your campaign on our Fundraising platform. If you are going to create an online fundraising campaign for the first time, you can face difficulty finding the option. In that case, see at the bottom line of the webpage or simply follow this link, https://odommobangladesh.org.bd/donation/create/campaign

Create Awareness: Once the campaign has been created, share the link on FacebookTwitter, and other social media channels, and let your friends know.

Raise Funds: Tell your friends and family that they can support OBF by contributing to your purposeful campaign.

Make an Impact: Know that we will utilize all the funds raised through your campaign to provide support underprivileged street children in Bangladesh. We will use that fund for the specific goal you selected in your campaign.

It won’t take more than a couple of minutes from your busy schedule and you’ll become a role model for other people.

 

Transparency of Online Fundraising Through OBF Fundraising Platform

It is transparency that motivates a donor to continue his support for a nonprofit. So, we are Introducing the “OBF Fundraising Platform”- a more transparent way of helping street children in Bangladesh.

Donating online is safer than ever. While donating through the OBF Fundraising Platform, donors can use 24 mediums including Bkash, Card, Rocket, etc. All donations will directly be deposited to our official bank account named “Odommo Bangladesh Foundation”. So, no members of our organization have to deal with donations personally.

After donating through the OBF Fundraising Platform, both donor and fundraiser can see the donor’s name on the website. If any donor wants to donate anonymously, we respect the donor’s decision. That’s why we provide an option to donate anonymously. In this case, he will see his donation amount marked as anonymous. This particular system will work as a donation confirmation to the donors.

Also, it can reduce receiving cash donations. According to OBF’s official system, only a few selected members of the organization can receive cash funds. But, still there are at least two risks in this. The donation money can be lost or hijacked. Any of these incidents can damage the trust of the donor and also the confidence of that particular member.

Besides, receiving donations from a donor’s place can be both time-consuming and costly. For example, If one goes to Uttara sector 6 from Khilgaon(OBF’s Head Office) to collect donations, it might cost around 130tk. The up-down bus fare from Khilgaon to Uttara Azompur is 70tk. And the rickshaw up-down fare from Uttara-Azompur to sector 6 is 60 tk. Also, Dhaka’s regular traffic jam might waste extra 03-04 hours. On the other hand, if the donor donated online, say 5000 tk is donated via Bkash. Bank will charge only 1.7%* of the donation, which is 85tk for 5000tk. So, using this medium will save both time and money.

Impact on Street Children of Odommo Bangladesh Foundation(OBF)

For us at OBF, online fundraising has more to it than simply accepting donations online. It is a platform to reach out to as many people as possible. The more people know, the more awareness will create about the street children. The support for street children will be increased immensely. More people will be starting to support street children from their respective places.

Also, every donation we receive makes a difference to many underprivileged street children’s lives. As of now, we connect with 2000 underprivileged children every month in Bangladesh. We provide them nutritious food, quality education, medical support, and most importantly a happy time. Our vision is to build street children free Bangladesh. And that will be easier if we have more people on board.

In essence, you can help OBF reach more people and raise funds for our cause by starting and promoting an online fundraising campaign on our own fundraising platform.
