Back-to-School means Back-to-Fundraising
Whether you’re raising funds to attend a competition or trying to pull in some cash to buy equipment, a fundraising project can be a fun way for your team or club to raise money.
Running a car wash? Selling something yummy? Use these selling tips to help you get the most out of your fundraising project:
- Go for the Goal: Set a monetary goal for your fundraiser – make sure everyone in the group knows what they’re working for so they’ll really go for it!
- Share It: Upload a flyer about the product or service that you’re selling onto your team’s website and social media pages so people can read about it from home or their phone.
- Give the Details: Your customers (aka friends, neighbors, and family) may have questions about specific ingredients or other details. If you’re selling a product, provide a link to the corporate webpage where they’ll probably have answers to FAQs.
- Be in the Know: Talk to your team members about the specific product or service that your group is selling. Qualities like “no artificial preservatives”, “dairy-free options”, or “unique flavors” could be appealing to potential customers – so take a few minutes to learn some selling points of the product.
Fundraising requires some time, effort, and organization -- fortunately, it also generates plenty of benefits. In addition to helping your group earn money for uniforms or entrance fees, participating in the fundraiser itself can be an opportunity to develop leadership skills, confidence, and even a fun group-building activity.
