With a few easy tips, your group can make the right choices to make your fundraising profit skyrocket!
Here are a few fundraising profit tips:
Choose the right fundraiser. For school fundraisers and other large groups, choose fundraisers that will be easy for your group members to sell without too much hands-on involvement. With larger groups, it's hard to keep track of each and every member throughout the fundraiser. It's idea to choose something that the students or group members can understand and sell easily. Cookie dough fundraisers and Discount card fundraisers tend to be great for these types of groups. Straightforward and very popular, both of these fundraisers tend to be top sellers in most communities. If you take advantage of ABC Fundraising's Profit Booster Program - you can increase your fundraising profit even more. If you only have a few people in your group, then a cookie dough or discount fundraiser may not work as well for your group as both of these fundraising options require minimum orders. If your small group is super-motivated, then they may be able to meet the minimums and make a huge fundraising profit despite your small numbers.
Other great fundraisers include Spinners Fundraisers, Candle Sales, Movie Ticket Fundraisers, Auntie Anne's pretzels fundraisers as well as event or activity fundraisers. Event fundraisers can be a lot of fun but are also a lot of work so make sure to consider the time investment when factoring your fundraising profit. A couple of ideas for event fundraisers to consider are: creative bake sale fundraisers, dance-a-thon, jog-a thons, auction fundraisers, chili-cook-offs and car wash fundraisers.
Motivate your group or team. This is invaluable and is the biggest factor in your fundraising profit. If you can get 100% participation or close to that, your fundraiser will be a success and you will reach your fundraising profit goals. The main reason a fundraiser does not succeed is if your group members don't do it. Here are a few ideas to motivate your group: make the fundraiser a friendly competition. Pit classes against each other or girls against boys, or older grades against younger - host a rally to get everyone fired up about the fundraiser and the spirit of competition. Offer a small prize whether it be a party, extra break time, or some other benefit that makes sense for your group. Encourage parents to urge their child to participate and explain why. Encourage and track successes and progress.
What is the best way to track fundraising profit? Our favorite way is with a Free Fundraising Thermometer. This free tool that ABC Fundraising is proud to offer gives your group an opportunity to watch your fundraising profit climb. Keep it updated - have it posted on your school, church or group's homepage and on everyone's facebook page. This will also encourage more people to donate to your group and support the fundraiser so that you can reach your goals. Share your fundraising thermometer with your supporters so they can follow your progress too. You never know when they might want to push your fundraising profit over the edge!
