Choosing The Right Fundraiser For Your School


Even when you have the best and purest intentions of raising money, execution is still very important. When it comes to choosing a fundraiser, you will either excejoining 770559 1280ed or fail to meet expectations. There is only one thing to keep in mind if you want to succeed in your fundraising event and this is to ensure that your fundraiser matches your group. If a fundraiser fails to match your group’s interest, the purpose of the event will be instantly defeated. This is due to the fact that getting participants to sign up will be such a challenging task. You need to start with the factors that will be of interest to your group members.

Find out about the group’s motivations.

Each member of your group has different goals of participating in a fundraising event. Some of them want to help while others have more profound goals. Regardless of their reason for participating, it is important that they are motivated to meet these goals. For instance, group members may be motivated to participate because of the material prizes while others like to be involved in the social scene. Once you have gathered the group’s main objective and reasons for joining, it will be much easier for you to choose the right fundraiser.

Set realistic goals.

A fundraiser will only be considered a success if you get all group members to participate in the event. Without support, a fundraiser is bound to fail. You can prevent heading straight towards the brink of disaster if you set realistic goals. How can you tell if those goals are realistic? Think about your group’s capacity to raise money. Identify your group’s strengths and weaknesses. Some of them may be good at selling while others may be good at organizing. Assign members to a task that you know they are good at. A fundraiser coordinator must know his or her group prior to choosing a fundraiser.

Determine the group’s passion.

A fundraiser may be interesting enough for group members to walk the extra mile, but if they are not passionate about what they do, the time and effort you invested will all be futile at the end of the day. There should be something that your group members are passionate about and you need to work these out. You can make the fundraising event fun if groups do not see it as an obligation. If they are having fun with what they are doing, they won’t even know they are already doing it for a good cause.

Plan things out carefully.

Even when you have brilliant ideas, the failure to plan everything can make the event unsuccessful. Once you have identified your group’s passion, strengths and goals, you need to fuse all of these into one so you can determine the group’s common goals. In spite of the group members’ individual differences, you can still have the same goal once team work is present. Monitor the event and do a follow-up if necessary.
After the event, you should make an effort to evaluate the event so you will know the things that work and the ones that don’t. Ask the group about their personal experiences raising money for a good cause and the challenges they encounter. You can help your group avoid mistakes the next time you choose a fundraiser this way. Finally, don’t forget to thank your group and other participants.
