8 EASY STEPS
Fundraising Made Simple
Set a Date
Host your own fundraising any time of the year, that best suits you. Aim to conduct this campaign when there are fewer competing events.
Select someone to co-ordinate and oversee the campaign. Your co-ordinator will keep track of all orders taken by each seller and record the monies received. A Tally Sheet is perfect for keeping record (see our website).
Set a Goal
Establish how the monies raised will be used and set a target - it’s great to have a goal!
Promote the campaign via your newsletter and tell them how the monies will be used.
Promote the campaign as often as you can so that there is a greater degree of product awareness, which will assist your sellers when the time comes to take orders.
Ideas: Newsletters, noticeboards, posters, email, website, social media, and maybe approaching your local newspaper.
Set a Time Frame
Ideally it is a good idea to run your campaign over a 3-4 week period.
As your event approaches and throughout the campaign, it is a great idea to keep your sellers informed of key dates and activities.
