How to Set a Fundraising Goal

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.

Easy Fundraising Ideas

As team leader, the most important meeting you will have is your initial brainstorm. Ask your volunteers what ideas they have and what they can bring to the table. What connections do they have? How much time can they offer? If you have someone on your team who has connections to the Toronto Maple Leafs, a raffle or auction would give a substantial profit. At the end of the day fundraising is meant to be fun. For the volunteers and for those who donate. So have fun and get creative!
