Fundraising Companies To Help Plan Your Project

April 16, 2016 | Author: | Posted in Education

Raising money for your organization or cause is not as difficult as you would think. There are plenty of fundraising companies who are ready and willing to show you the ropes. They will make sure your project is a success. From pancake breakfasts to karaoke night contests, there is a fun and quick way to raise funds needed for a specific project or organization.

The first thing to consider is the demographic that you want to buy your product. Do not sell books for children to raise money for redecorating a retirement home. Try to understand what your potential customers would want to purchase. Another factor is the profit margin. The smaller the profit margin the more work you will have to do to achieve your goal and vice versa.

The companies will show you the way to success, with selling tools and planning guides. Consider the shipping aspect if you are selling a product. It is better to have the product shipped directly to the customer. This saves you the trouble of delivering products to several people.

Take the time to do some research to make sure you make the smart choice for your organization. There are resources online that you can download, and they provide excellent advice and ideas. One catalog tells the profit margin to expect and how to market your product. They will also provide you with links to companies, who will contact you in hopes that you will choose their product.

Group activities are fun and they can be very profitable. These may not be as straight forward as selling candles, but the opportunity for bigger rewards is certainly there. Have a tennis tournament and sell tickets. Include a silent auction for lessons from the club professional. If your target market loves tennis, this will be a huge success. Social events are great morale builders, which is an added benefit.

Gala parties and karaoke night are also fun. Be sure you are having an event that your feel will appeal to your crowd. Most people have donated to a marathon where kids are paid an amount of cents or dollars for each lap they run. Taking this to the nth degree, think of the walk for breast cancer. This is a huge undertaking, but something similar on a smaller scale could be effective and profitable.

Two great websites will provide you with lots of resources. Go to Double the Donation and Fundraising.com. You should be able to find out everything you need to know to get started. Put your heart and energy into the event. You will have fun and make money for a good cause.
