Oh, No! It's My Turn--Tips, Techniques and Strategies for Successful Fund Raising.Written by Larry Denton
Oh, no! Yep, this year it's your turn to conceive, organize, recruit volunteers, and administer your organization's biggest fund raiser. Every year fund raising ideas help thousands of communities across America raise millions of dollars for schools, sports teams, fraternal organizations, Scouting programs, charitable organizations and churches. Fund raising projects span a wide range, from selling lollipops and candy bars to donkey basketball and kissing pig contests. Coming up with profitable fund raisers can be a tough process.
Do not lose sight of two primary goals of fund raisers: to make money for your organization and to have FUN. Many people, both young and old, grow weary of fund raising projects and simply give up. Do not consider this option! Find a fund raiser that will not only make a profit, but will also excite and stimulate volunteers or participants. Build in fun goals, offer fun incentives, take and display oodles of pictures (everybody likes to see their picture), and plan fun wrap-up activities--a barbecue, touch football game, Frisbee golf, swimming party, etc.
Fund raising projects can essentially be broken down into two broad categories: brochure fund raisers, and direct sale fund raisers. Brochure fund raisers are relatively profitable, fairly simple to organize, and almost risk-free since you do not have to purchase any products for resale. You can offer a vast array of products (from Christmas wrap and tulip bulbs, to magazine subscriptions and CDs) via color brochures to your family, friends, neighbors and business associates. It's also recommended that fund raisers offer their brochures in general business community.
