Fundraising is defined as the process of gathering voluntary contributions of money or other resources, by requesting donations from individuals, businesses, charitable foundations, or governmental agencies.
I have ALWAYS loved Fundraisers! Maybe that is why I loved grant writing so much. Now, it is one of the favorite parts of my business!
I’ve been doing fundraisers since I started with Thirty One almost 6 years ago. I had lots of practice getting the glitches out so I can make it fun for you and your organization. There are lots of ways to do fundraisers to help you, your organization or cause raise the money they need this year. What better time then during the holiday season when everyone is shopping anyway, right?
What if you aren’t a group or bold enough to ask online for help from family and friends? What if you are the average family struggling to pay for unexpected expenses? Or maybe your child (children) want to play on a sports team but you don’t have the money for uniforms or equipment? What if you have overwhelming medical bills and an extra $100 or $200 would help eliminate the stress? What if you are expecting a new addition to the family BUT the cost of new furniture, diapers (have you seen how expensive they are?) and formula is already stressing you out?
MY TOP 7 ways to fund raise!
Pick one or combine a few of them. Whatever works for YOU! Combining a few ensures success when it comes to hosting a fundraiser!
#1 Online Party
Easy Peezy! We list your fundraiser on my website and then everyone can follow the link to order. 25% of all orders are donated to your organization.
#2 Home Show/ Open House
You host a home show and invite all your friends and family to see the product and order there!
#3 Facebook Event
Is everyone you know on Facebook? This is a GREAT way to highlight product, HOW they could enjoy Thirty-One while donating to a great cause. I set it up and you invite your friends. Everything is done online.
#4 Bingo Night
OMG! This is my favorite one! Everyone LOVES to play Bingo. They win prizes, and order to donate to a great cause!
#5 Fashion Show
We pick a collection of products or bundles. Have organization members model them while we share tips for alternate uses. Everyone has that hidden desire to be an “actress”. We can have lots of fun while getting everyone involved.
#6 A Favorites Collection
We put together a collection of 5 to 6 products. I make a flier, and your group sells just those products.
#7 Registration Party
Everyone shows up on team registration night. This is a great opportunity to get ALL the parents even those you don’t see all of the time. I would be happy to set up a table of products and collect orders. We can also hand out packets so others can help collect orders.
Easier and different then the traditional candy bar or wrapping paper fundraiser. Everyone LOVES Thirty One. The products are fun, functional, fashionable and affordable. There is something in everyone’s price range.
