You love to support good causes and you have donated to many fundraisers in the past, you’ve volunteered to make phone calls or send out flyers, or maybe you even helped organize a past product fundraiser event. But now, you are the Chairperson for the big fundraiser for your organization and there is a lot more responsibility than ever before!. People are counting on you to make the right decisions about your fundraising strategy so that the campaign will be a success.
Everyone is counting on you to bring them a successful fundraising plan. There’s great news, however. You have Little Angel as your fundraising partner! We offer some fantastic products that are healthy and useful, some of the best profit margins you’ll find anywhere and we promise to be there with you every step of the way to help you reach your goals.
Let’s get started looking at some proven fundraising tips and ideas that will help ensure that your fundraising success:
Set Your Fundraising Profit Goal
The best fundraising goal is written in a way that sums it all up in in one sentence and explains clearly the difference the funds will make. Speak with your group about what you want to get out of your nonprofit fundraiser and set a reachable and realistic goal. Are the funds for your group’s activities, new building improvements, or donating to your organization’s favorite cause? Help your supporters see exactly what your nonprofit fundraiser will do by creating a specific goal statement.
For example, here is a vague and not-so-good goal statement:
“We want to raise money to help needy children.”
This way might be better:
“We will raise $1,000 using a product fundraiser to help pay for the new playground equipment at our youth center by June 30th.”
The second statement is a much clearer fundraising goal because it identifies the specific need, the exact dollar amount, the recipient and the goal deadline.
Understand How a Product Fundraiser Works
Product fundraisers can provide significant profit in as little as 3 weeks, with a small number of volunteers. Selling products for a nonprofit fundraiser is often much easier and quicker than either a direct appeal or event approach. When you partner with Little Angel, you have the advantage of offering a variety of products to sell for fundraising that people actually want to purchase and you’ll often be able to reach people in your entire community as a result. You can certainly combine your product fundraiser with one or more events. Greek Festivals are a perfect example. Whatever your needs, we think you’ll find having Little Angel products to sell to be a big hit with both your supporters and your volunteers! And, you’ll have all the resources and help you need from us every step of the way.
Create a Sound Fundraising Plan
