Running a Successful Fundraiser
Need to raise money for your child’s sports team or to support a worthwhile cause? Raising money is hard work, no matter what economy you face. Rather than invest your valuable time and resources with little payback, we have provided some tips on how to run a successful fundraiser.
Establishing a basic sales technique can help garner donations or interest in your cause. Do not ask anyone if they want to buy anything without first sharing information about yourself, your cause, and your goal. Emphasizing your cause will convince individuals to donate because they can understand it on a personal level. If you’re careful to respect your sellers and buyers throughout the fundraising process, you’re bound to be successful. If there is an incentive prize, choose one that is relevant to your cause. If your cause is raising money for a child’s sport team, the grand prize could be tickets to the big game or that of a popular sports team. Keep it manageable. Ultimately, you will want to work as a team to gain the best ideas and to spread awareness.
Remember to promote your fundraiser as much as possible! Do so with flyers, a social media campaign, even t-shirts!
