Having a successful fundraiser does not always come down to the products. Although the type and quality of products are important, it takes a team of people dedicated to your organization, with enthusiasm and tenacity to meet the goals needed to move the organization forward.
How you set up a fundraiser is as important as what you’re selling. We took a little advice from a high school cheerleading group in New Jersey to find out what they did to maximize the return on their coffee fundraiser.
What they found was door-to-door sales don’t do as well as selling product at games. If people sample the product, which of course they pay for, they’re more willing to buy a bag or two of coffee on the spot.
Since they have to raise funds for their activities throughout the year, they decided to choose products that are easy to sell on cold fall nights. Coffee just happens to be a perfect product for their type of fundraising. They sell the coffee and ask each customer what they think of the quality. If the customer likes the coffee, they then suggest if they would like to purchase a bag or two of coffee to help with fundraising for their activities. After collecting the customers information they then submit the entire evening’s worth of orders to Fundraising Junction. Since Fundraising Junction ships quickly, the next football game the customers orders are already at the game for them to pick up. Customers love the fact that they can order coffee by the bag and have it ready the following week or even have it shipped to their house.
