How To Plan A Successful Fundraiser
In general, the best way to start fundraising is to look at the things you want to do, (travel, equipment, uniforms), and understand what they cost. When you search for fundraising products, look at the fundraising profit they offer and calculate what you need to buy to meet your fundraising targets. Here are good questions to ask when planning a successful fundraiser:
- How much time do you have available for fundraising?
- When should you start fundraising and for how long?
- When will you need to receive the fundraising products
- What resources available to you? (volunteers, financial, contacts)
- How many cases will you need to meet your fundraising goals?
- Do you want to order all at once, (to get discounts) or order in smaller quantities?
- How you want to do your fundraiser? (Buy up front then sell OR take orders first, collect money after).
- How do you want to pay for your order?
- What can you to get ready before you start fundraising?
After this, consider how the fundraiser works and how much of your time and effort is required to use it. If a fundraiser is complicated you will need to spend time explaining it. If the fundraising product is perishable or requires special care and storage you may spent a lot of time with this. That’s where you discover the hidden costs of many fundraisers.
