2. Share Your Pitch and Engage Your Community

Once your pitch is ready, it's time to spread the word. Utilize Switch's social features to engage with your community and build excitement around your fundraising campaign.

The more people you reach, the more donations you can expect.

3. Manage Funds and Track Donations
