A goal setting chart is a perfect tool for tracking your progress milestones during a fundraising campaign. A goal thermometer tracks donation totals on a single contribution form and is particularly handy if you’re fundraising on a deadline and want those contributing to physically see the progress being made. Using goal tracker to monitor the donations, sales or profit coming in for your cause can help motivate your supporters by providing a visual representation of just how much more needs to be done.
How to Use a Goal Thermometer Template
A goal thermometer template will give you and your donors a visual representation the progress made towards a specific goal. The first thing you need to do when creating a donation tracker is to decide on whether you want to measure the number of contributors and participants OR the number of funds raised. Your goal thermometer should be based on a tangible goal - think it through beforehand and make sure you’re the goal you’re setting up is reasonable. Setting a realistic goal on your will more likely compel supporters to participate. Remember to leave space for the start and end dates of your fundraiser on the goal thermometer template before you upload and you’re ready to begin your campaign.
