  • Easy way to boost any fundraiser

    A simple practice many people overlook is making your fundraiser part of an event. A change in the timing or placement of your fundraiser could double or triple the profit you usually make, without adding any additional work for you.

    Our customers have been using events to boost their fundraisers for a long time. Being associated with an event can help your fundraiser make more profit quickly and reach a wider audience. An event can also put your fundraiser in front of new people. Think of the friends, relatives, and loose associations that show up to student performances, awards ceremonies, and sports games.

    Here are a few of our favorite types of event opportunities:

    Musical / Theater / Choir

    Do not miss out on the opportunity to make profit at your group’s performances! Audience members are usually happy to help your cause. Who doesn’t like a snack while watching a show?

    Our Grand Variety features theater size candy like Skittles®, Reese’s®, and Kit Kat®.

    Even if your venue doesn’t allow food, we have exciting opportunities for your fundraiser. Donation Dots® is a fun, community fundraiser that works great when crowds are gathered.

    Athletic Events

    Sports games are a great chance to make big profit. Even if your games have a typical concession stand already, there are additional ways you can reach potential donors at the venue.

    Non food items and class lanyards work really well, and you won't be competing with a concession stand.

    We have excellent items for outdoor events. Our Ultimate Variety has popular candy and snacks that are perfect for outdoor or indoor sports, and fans always buy a lot of Cheez-It®, Oreo Mini®, and M&M’s®.

    Our Create Your Own Varieties are always helpful. You likely have a good idea of who will be at your event, and what kind of items they will find interesting. Use Create Your Own to deliver to your donors exactly what they want, whether that be chocolate, hot snack items, or candy.

    The chance to customize your fundraiser with big brand names and make up to 50% Profit doesn’t exist anywhere else in fundraising.

    Quick Tips

    Make signs. You can make donors aware by having signs hung before your fundraiser or you can use them to add hype during your fundraiser. You can’t go wrong with hanging signs about your fundraiser.

    Be visible. It may sound obvious, but be sure to place your fundraiser where it is clearly visible. This may be in a main entrance or a hallway with a lot of through traffic. Don’t forget to make your display appealing to people who walk by.

  • Tips to Speed up Your Fundraiser

    Our goal at Freedom Fundraising is to help you meet your fundraising goals as quickly as possible. Here are tips we've gathered from some of our most successful customers about running a smooth fundraiser.

    Who wouldn’t like to speed up their fundraiser?

    Get your fundraiser in front of the largest crowd that you can. Think about how you can organize your sellers so that they are in front of as many groups as possible and can get your products in front of new donors who will help your group.

    Donors who have made a purchase before are an asset to you. Previous purchasers can be reliable for additional sales. If you know people who have purchased from you in the past, let them know that your fundraiser is starting again. You can tell them about the returning items that they like as well as new items they may be interested in.

    Setting up a table near crowds

    Try to place your fundraiser near an event where people will want candy and snacks! Think about plays, sporting events, school dances, and church events. These are events where large groups of people gather and many would enjoy a snack and feel good about helping a worthy cause.

    It’s always a good idea to set up a table where there are large crowds. Your setup attracts attention, and your sellers should be good at explaining how your fundraiser will help your group.

    What to sell

    It can help morale if your sellers really like the item that you sell. Candy fundraisers are still the number one selling fundraiser, and they remain popular with kids and adults alike.

    Our $2 Chocolate Bar Variety offers 60% Profit for a limited time! They come in 5 delicious flavors and are a customer favorite.

    Think about choosing the highest profit margin product you can find when deciding on a fundraiser because a higher profit margin can make a giant difference to your fundraiser. It can help your group make more money and cut down on the time you have to spend selling.

    Our Create Your Own Varieties allow you to choose your own variety of our proven, best-selling candy and snack brands. Personalize your case and sell items you already know your customers want. This is a tremendously helpful option when you know your audience well, whether it's a student body, church group, or event-goers.

    If you plan on getting a lot of sales from parents, consider a brochure fundraiser. Conveniently parents can avoid carrying large amounts of products when they take brochures to work. Once parents have received orders, they can deliver items to donors. This option leaves little work to be done up front by the parent. It’s a super convenient way to get parents involved!

    Planning and consideration of how many sellers you have, what kind of display you are able to use, and you can find large crowds will help you have a successful fundraiser that will meet your goals. If you have questions and would like assistance in selecting the perfect fundraiser, call us at 1-800-500-2500. One of our fundraising staff members is waiting to help you find the perfect product for your fundraiser.
