When you are beginning the process of choosing ideas, it pays to take your time and think about what you're doing, so that you get it right the first time instead of having to start over several times with different plans. Assess the band's monetary goals for their fundraiser, and divide the amount up into terms of what each person will be expected to do. Also consider what sort of investment the band or the school is prepared to make to help out with getting your fundraiser started. For example, do you need to have a pre-sell fundraiser where no money down is required, or is there some money available to you so that you can maybe consider direct sale ideas? Things like scratch card fundraisers can provide profits of up to 90%, but to reap those kind of rewards the band will have to commit to a purchase of at least 100 cards upfront. For some groups this is not a problem, but others may need to look to other band fundraiser ideas instead.
Regardless of what kind of fundraising team you have, you can look through our band fundraisers and find the perfect fundraising activity for you. If you have any concerns or questions, just contact your fundraising consultant, who will help point you in the right direction and advise you on the best way to find the band fundraiser ideas that will take your band down the road to success.
