Why product fundraising may be right for you
The number of options for fundraisers available now can be dizzying, and it is hard to separate what might be an effective fundraiser from what is a waste of time. Even with the variety of fundraising ideas and options available today, product fundraising is still one the best and most effective ways to fundraise for your cause, and the right product that connects with your donors will make your fundraiser really effective for your group.
If your item is well placed, it will free up your energy because it will cut down on the work that it takes to sell. A good example of this is a sports event or theater performance where there is already a demand for candy and snack items. Our $2 Create Your Own allows you to make your own perfect selection of theater size candy.
It can be easier to have a product for donors than to simply ask for money. If a product is well placed, it will be easier to sell because it meets a donor’s need. Having a variety of products can also give your seller many of good ways to easily ask for a donation.
Donors may buy multiple items or buy items as gifts for other people. If a donor likes more than one item, he or she may consider buying more than just one! It can help a lot to use fundraising items that make good gifts. We recommend looking at our Excite! Your Snacktime and Celestial Candle brochures for potential gift items.
Your product can connect to the season. There are so many events throughout the year that have candy or snacks associated with them. Think about Halloween, Valentines Day, and Christmas, and the list goes on and on. There are all sorts of creative tie-ins you can do with different days, we even have special wrappers you can download and print.
Product fundraisers are such a simple and effective way to raise money that it’s easy to see why so many people rely on them. There is so much variety possible and connect with your audience. We even allow you to make your own variety of candy and snacks with our Create Your Own varieties. Let us know what we can do to help, and give us a call at 1-800-500-2500.
