How can I achieve my ambitious nonprofit fundraising goal in 60 days?

I have two months to raise $6000 for an educational animal facility in southern Ontario. I need tips on how I can possibly achieve this goal on a crowdsourcing site. I've succeeded at raising $1000 in the past, but that's the limit of my experience with fundraising. My nonprofit is new and we don't yet have an established presence or an established donor base. Should I look for corporate sponsors? If so, what would that meeting look like and who might be sympathetic to my cause? How do I even make the initial approach?

In the past, I raised the $1000 entirely through my Twitter presence. I approached hundreds of people individually. It was very inefficient (it took months), painstaking, and awkward. For this much larger goal, I'd prefer to try something different.
