Fundraising Tips:

How To Reach Your Fundraising Financial Goals

There's a lot to think about when planning your fundraiser but make sure you don't miss these key factors your fundraiser's plans.

  1. Identify Your Needs And Set Your Goals

    The first essential steps to a successful fundraising campaign are to identify your group's needs and set your groups financial goals. If your group members know how the money will be spent and their personal benefits, this will motivate them, keep them focused and help with their sales pitch.

  2. Don't Focus On Percentage (%) Profit Alone!

    Although the percentage profit for the products you are selling is important, there are many other factors that need to be considered at the same time.

    One company may offer 50% of sales while another may offer 40%. The 40% company may be providing valuable services such as consulting, kickoffs, incentive programs, timely delivery of merchandise, and custom packing. These advantages will save your volunteers time and lead to higher profits, overall. The company offering the lower % may also have a higher quality product. This product's high quality will also help to increase sales and profits for your group. If a company is offering a lower percentage profit find out why!

  3. Get Your Participants Motivated

    In most cases, the money raised is a strong incentive, but often prize award programs can be a valuable way to build excitement and boost profits. Be sure to ask your participants what would motivate them and don't forget to be creative.
