Easy Fund Raising Ideas for Your Next Fundraiser
If you are looking for ideas for fund raising, check out this article.
Fund raising is a necessary part of keeping an organization going that many people dread. When you are constantly fund raising, it’s easy to lose sight of the ultimate goal and to recognize that the money raised is a means to a greater end. It is important to remind yourself that your school fund raising actually affords your school the freedom to explore or execute programs that they may not be able to otherwise. Fund raising can purchase the supplies your team needs to practice and improve their skills. Money raised through fundraising can help your charitable cause whether it be something small and personal or something international. Keep your eye focused on the benefits of fund raising and the day-to-day struggles may not seem so daunting.
Fund raising starts with ideas for fundraisers. Ask yourself a few questions. How much money do we need to raise? What type of fundraiser will work best for my supporters and donors?
Knowing both how much your donors can afford to spend and what types of fundraising they will be willing to spend their money on is important. If you don’t have the answers to these questions, you may want to do some market research. You can ask a few of your prospective supporters what kind of fundraiser they would like to see. Give them a few choices that you have thought about in advance. Present them with ideas that you have found would offer you enough profit for the amount of work required. Rather than asking a supporter “how much would you spend?” – you can ask them if you were to offer Auntie Anne’s pretzels for a certain amount, would they buy? Or, if you were to offer an exceptional meal with entertainment for between $$1000-$2500 a plate, would they like to purchase a ticket? If you are planning to charge that kind of money for your event fundraiser, you probably already know that your target audience can and will support that.
Some areas and groups will find that event fund raising will be a fantastic option for them. Event fund raising can be very formal and expensive and it can also be very down to earth and low key. Either way, an event fundraiser requires quite a bit of fundraising management. Different aspects of the event must be attended to. Sponsors, food, drink, location, publicity, invitations, entertainment, décor and seating, and more all must be taken care of whether your event is a 4th of July fireworks extravaganza or a more humble talent night. It is important to have people you can delegate to ensuring your fund raising event success.
Many groups will find it easier to pursue fund raising through products that require less work and internal organization. Fund raising with products takes the effort of phone calls and all of the moving parts of an event off your plate. However, for a successful fund raising campaign, you will still need to be involved. It is important that you still maintain a timeline, remain organized, and your fund raising focus will be on motivating your group to raise as much money as possible.
