If you plan on doing some event fund raising you are going to need a solid plan in order to be successful. There are a few very simple tips that you can use to be more successful. This article will look at a couple of things you may try next time you plan a fundraiser.
One way to plan out a good fundraising project is to evaluate the area in which you live in and try to capitalize on obvious areas where you might be able to raise funds. One of the keys to success in any business is to do things that other people don’t really want to do. You can apply this same principle when it comes to event fund raising.
If you live in an area where they have harsh winters, you can plan ahead and maybe have your youth group or other organization you’re working with to get people to sign up for having their driveways cleared of snow and other types of things. This could be a fantastic way to pre raise allot of fund raising money.
Shoveling snow and such may not be that great of a job and in fact it’s something that most people really hate to do if they live in area where there is a lot of snow. This is the perfect opportunity for you if you want to make some good extra money for your charity or organization.
Another great tip for making your next event fund raising project a success is to think about doing things when other people are not doing them. Every summer you see the garage sales and car washes all over town. Have you ever thought about doing those events during the wintertime when there’s less competition. You might be able to find a local car wash that operates year-round that would be willing to let your group come in and wash cars or help clean wheels and such and donate a part of the profits to your group.
Everybody loves a good rummage sale or garage sale, but why not open up your gym at your school or at church and have an indoor garage sale right before Christmas. Many people will buy Christmas gifts from these types of sales. These are just a few simple fundraising ideas that might make your next event fund raising project a success.
