Getting started

The only charity video maker your organization needs

The numbers don’t lie: users view more than 1 billion hours of video a day on YouTube alone. Which means a quality non-profit video is the best way for your organization to reach its audience, raise awareness for important causes, and boost donations. Fortunately, it’s easy to make a charity video with Biteable.

Stick to your budget

Charity videos made with Biteable won’t break the bank. When you sign up for our popular online software, you’ll get access to a host of amazing features for one low monthly price. You have a budget, we stick to it — something the video crew down the street can’t claim.

No experience needed

Biteable fundraising videos couldn’t be simpler to create. Start with one of our professionally designed templates. Then customize the text, change the colors, add video clips from the Biteable library or your own personal stash — whatever you want. It’s easy as pie.

Biteable is awesome. It helped me create something so beautiful that I didn't have the skills to do!

The basics

Raise awareness with powerful fundraising videos

Awareness is key. After all, if nobody knows about your non-profit, you’ll have a hard time raising funds. Charity videos are the best way to share your message with the world, but you have to get a few foundational elements right.

Understand your viewers

Success with charity videos always starts with understanding your unique viewers. Who are they? What moves them? How do they prefer to support non-profit organizations? Answer these questions and you’ll be well on your way to crafting an effective video for charity.

Prioritize engagement

The best non-profit videos are informative and engaging. If your videos don’t grab your audience by the lapels within the first few seconds and give them a compelling reason to keep watching, they won’t. So make sure that when you make a video for charity it’s “triple S” — short, simple, and specific.

Pro tips

Build non-profit campaigns that win

If you want to craft effective charity videos, you have to get the basics (outlined above) right. If you want to totally crush it with charity videos, you need to add a little mustard to them. Here are a couple of tips for total mustard-drenched non-profit video goodness:

Hit ’em where it counts

Number and logic will only carry you so far. To really make fundraising videos that actually, you know, raise funds, you need to hit your audience where it counts: the heart.

Make your viewers laugh, cry, or feel passionate. Better this than boredom and indifference. If your videos rile up emotions, you’ll see donations pile up faster hipsters on a pair of skinny jeans.

Create, test, repeat

We’ll let you in on a little secret: Babe Ruth didn’t crush a homer on his first at bat, Michael Jordan had to learn to make layups before he could sink three-pointers, and John Elway lost two Super Bowls before he won one.

The point? You might not make the perfect charity video on your first try — and that’s ok! The trick is to create something, test it out, learn what worked and what didn’t, and adjust your approach for future videos.

Say it with us. ”Create, test, repeat. Create, test, repeat. Create, test, repeat…”
