9 Steps to Better Fund Raising

There are several ways to go about fund raising, but the golden standard remains selling chocolate! You did it as a kid, your kids do it, their kids will do it, and so on until the end of time. But as simple as the process may seem, there are ways to increase the effectiveness of your fundraiser.

Here are 9 steps to help you raise more funds:

9. How much time do you need to reach your fundraising goal?

You don’t want to order too much chocolate, but you also do not want to order too little. Set specific fundraiser goals and set deadlines. This will help you stay on track and continuously sell instead of waiting until the last minute.

8. Family and Friends:

Sell to your friends and family first. This is always a good place to start.

7. Do your research:

Is it legal to fundraise in public spaces where you live? Having to pay fines will only hurt your fund raising totals.

6. Where is all the foot traffic?

Find areas of high foot traffic and set up shop. The more people around, the greater your odds are to make a sale. It is that simple.

5. Local stores:

Check with local storeowners and set up a booth out front of their store. Remember, grocery stores are always a great location with tons of foot traffic.

4. Be cordial:

No one wants to buy chocolate from you if you are not polite. Remember your please and thank yous.

3. Double dip:

Keep track of when you sold in a specific area. After a few weeks, double back around. And since you have already established a relationship with these people, selling should be easier the second time around.

2. Keeping track:

Keep track of how much money you are raising and in what timeframe. This will help you track this year’s fundraiser as well as help plan for next year.
