    Go out of your way to make sure everyone feels included in your fundraiser. Get the message out that everyone’s participation is invited and appreciated. This included pricing items in a way that they can be afforded by everyone.

    Grandparents!Grandparent Involvement

    There may be many grandparents that are eager to get involved but have never been asked. Parents’ connections are limited, so don’t neglect a group that could be an asset to your cause. Don’t just sell to grandparents, ask for their help!

    Important

    When patrons know how important the fundraiser is they will be more likely to get involved. Craft your message. Let people know how much their assistance means to your cause and how their donations will benefit your group.

  • Selling Tips for Better Fundraisers

    Good sales advice can help you get the most out of your time spent fundraising and take your fundraiser to the next level.

    We at Freedom Fundraising are proud to have power seller customers who are ready to share what they’ve learned from their years of experience.

    Here of some sales tips we’ve gathered from our time doing business with some of the best in fundraising.

    Kids are Power Sellers

    People like to help kids, and young people may be able to get sales in places that parents would not have much luck.

    Have students tell people what they are fundraising for and how the moneyraise money for schools will be used. This gives them more reason to be invested.

    Personalize the Fundraiser

    Use a slogan for your fundraiser: Help us buy new computers!/Help us get new sports equipment!/etc. You can put your slogan on flyers and tell it to donors.

    A slogan will put your own mark on your fundraiser, and it will give donors more reason to get involved.

    The Power of Gifts

    People are likely to buy more when they are using your product as a gift item. Remind them how well the product can work as a gift.

    Freedom Fundraising: Fundraising Ideas

    Try a New Product

    A new item can be an attention grabbing boost for your fundraiser. You may find that you appeal to a new group of people with a new item.

    Freedom Fundraising offers all kind of fun, creative products that your audience may not have seen before:

    Try Creative Prizes

    There are unlimited numbers of low or no cost prizes that will keep students motivated. – Teacher for a Day, First to Eat Lunch Passes, Pizza or Ice Cream Party

    Publicize

    Get the word out early and be ready when your product comes in. Send out emails, make phone calls, and make a post on a bulletin board a month ahead of time and let people know what is coming and what to expect.

    You can get a volunteer to be the cheerleader or evangelist for your cause. They can take on the duties of getting the word out before the fundraiser starts.

    Give Students Recognition for Their Involvement

    Public recognition can give students a boost in motivation that will keep participation up and sales strong. Consider some kind of public recognition such as posting names of students who meet the goal.

    Try Another Season for Your Fundraiser

    You may be surprised at your results when you try fundraising in a different season. Some products may be tied to certain times of year such as Christmas, but Candy and Snacks can be sold all year long. Trying a Candy or Snack fundraiser can open you up to try overlooked seasons in which you may have better sales!

  • Winning Ideas From Our Biggest Sellers

    Freedom Fundraising is fortunate to have very successful repeat customers. We talked to some of our most outstanding money makers, and they gave us their guidelines to help people just starting out with fundraising.

    Derek C. from Friendship, Wisconsin has successful fundraisers every year. Here are some of his best words of advice:

    1. Students will sell a lot of candy if they call gas stations, local grocery stores, and COLLEGES. You would be surprised at how many college students buy candy from kids!

    stores2017

    2. Allow students to check out 1 box of candy and 2 if they have a note from a parent.

    3. Set your fundraiser for 2 weeks only. This is the right amount of time for a student fundraiser. The kids are focused in this amount of time and will not grow tired of the fundraiser.

    4. Have an early turn-in date where kids need to turn in leftover candy. This way leftovers can be redistributed to other kids and there will not be wasted pieces.

    5. Kids like sour stuff. Adults like chocolate. You can combine both for best results in a Create Your Own Variety from Freedom Fundraising.

    6. Keep accurate records on a Google spreadsheet or something comparable. Check out Freedom Fundraising's tools page for resources to help keep your records.

    7. Remind and encourage parents to pre-pay for boxes, so they are able to take more and sell.

    8. Submit a picture to the newspaper of your top sellers. It is a great PR plug. Parents also love to see their kids in the paper.

    9. Send out thank you notes to the parents after the fundraiser is done and let them know that their support has been appreciated! Thank you notes are simple to do, and they go a long way in encouraging people to support you again.

    10. Give out cash prizes to the top 10 sellers. This is a huge incentive for kids! Cash talks!
