Why is fundraising so hard? We hear about the same challenges from many parents and teams about their past unsuccessful fundraisers. The difficulties tend to surround a lack of planning and an undesirable offering. The best fundraising ideas start with a simple but well-thought-out fundraising strategy and great product. We know our pepperoni stix sell, but in order to achieve the best results, remember to be SMART about your goal setting. Without defined goals, it is pretty hard to know whether or not you are succeeding.
Are you in search of the best fundraising ideas for kids? When getting children involved with fundraising, you show them how to give a little to make a big difference. They can be raising money for a community center, a new computer lab, or for their neighbourhood club; the best part about fundraisers led by kids is that they are able to learn the value of charitable giving at an early age.
We believe that if you’re going to be part of the community, you should also give back to it. We have a number of charitable organizations that we partner with, to help raise awareness as well as much needed funds. Halenda’s is so proud to partner with Returns 4 Leukemia to help raise money and awareness for such an important cause.
