Preparing A Successful Fundraising Campaign: Tips From ABC Fundraising®
Do you need ideas for your next Fundraising Campaign? If so, you've come to the right place. ABC Fundraising® has done the work for you. We have researched and selected the best and most profitable fundraisers so that your fundraising campaign is a success from the start.
When selecting your fundraising campaign, keep in mind your area, the size of your group and what you think your supporters would be interested in. It's also important to consider your timeline, how much parent or adult involvement there will be and how much money you need to raise.
In some areas, event or activity fundraisers work really well - if you have a lot of time, and adult involvement, event fundraisers are a fun option to consider. These fundraisers are not easy and usually have a lot of moving parts that you must attend to. However, if you are up for the challenge, some popular event fundraisers are: crab feeds, auctions, casino night, or carnivals. In addition to planning your fundraising campaign well, it is also crucial to publicize event fundraisers so that you bring in the money you need.
In most areas, you will find a product fundraising campaign to be successful. Choose your fundraising product based on time of year and what you think friends, family, neighbors and community members will be interested in. Do your supporters like delicious food fundraisers - like Cookie dough fundraisers or Auntie Anne's Pretzel Fundraisers? These fundraisers tend to be very successful for most types of groups. They tend to be especially popular for school fundraising and little league fundraisers.
Maybe your community is into more health-conscious fundraisers. Make your fundraising campaign a success with a scratch card or discount card fundraisers. Spinners, Scratch card and discount card fundraisers are gaining popularity because they are a great way for your supporters to help your group and save money themselves at the same time.
Discount Card fundraisers are an excellent choice because ABC Fundraising® has just made it easier than ever for your group to sell them. You simply fill out a merchant wish list, with a list of local businesses like dry cleaners, dentists, markets, coffee shops, gyms, chiropractors, car washes and so on. ABC Fundraising® will call and secure the merchants for your discount fundraising card so all you have to do is sell them! Now that is an easy fundraising campaign! Discount cards are terrific because they can save your supporters money year-round as they can use them over and over again. Your local businesses like them because they get extra business so these are truly a win-win. Your profit potential is huge because the discount cards are so easy to sell. You can go beyond just selling to friends, family and neighbors - sell at local events, local markets, farmer's markets and more. Get creative and discount cards could be your most profitable fundraising campaign ever.
Another fundraising campaign to consider is a Movie ticket fundraiser. This one is great because Abc Fundraising offers the option to run the movie ticket fundraiser alone, or you can run it along with another fundraiser like Auntie Anne's pretzel sales or a Spinners fundraiser. Who doesn't love movies? It's great to be able to offer something that people already buy at a good price - allowing your supporters to get something of value and help you raise money.
Remember a few tips to make your fundraising campaign your most profitable ever:
Choose the right fundraiser!
Set a timeline - most fundraisers should be run for approximately 2 weeks - have an end date so that you can keep your group on task.
Motivate! The key to a successful fundraising campaign is keeping your group motivated. Keep pushing and encouraging your group members until the very end - the fundraisers that raise the most money are the ones where the group members motivate each other.
Have Fun! Fundraising should be something that brings your group together - don't make it stressful.
ABC Fundraising® wants to make it as easy and stress-free as possible for you and your group.
