Catholic Church Fundraiser Ideas

When the time comes to start considering some Catholic church fundraiser ideas for activities, trips, or building new church facilities, you may not know how to begin. So many Catholic churches these days rely on church fundraiser ideas to stay afloat, so you’re going to have to come up with really solid fundraiser ideas sooner or later. The right Catholic church fundraiser idea can make the difference between your church getting exactly what it needs, or having to go through another period of financial hardship.

So what is the key to having a good Catholic church fundraiser? The basic idea is that you’ll want to be aware of your customer base and what they’re likely to want, and tailor your Catholic church fundraiser to the size of your group and what it can do. If you’re looking for a direct sale fundraiser, then something like chocolate can be a really good choice. You’ve probably seen this fundraising idea done elsewhere, but the reason it’s around a lot is because it’s popular.

If your fundraising team is smaller than most, then obviously you’ll want some Catholic church fundraiser ideas with the best potential for high profits. Scratch card fundraisers are a great choice for a group like yours. They’re easy to understand, they’re easy to carry around, and they have the highest profits of just about any church fundraiser out there. So if you like the idea of doing scratch cards or discount cards, we have Catholic church fundraiser ideas that will work for your group.

No matter what your monetary goals or the size of your church, we can help you find the best Catholic church fundraiser ideas out there. Have a look through our church fundraising ideas, and contact your fundraising consultant if you have any questions or need some help figuring out exactly which Catholic church fundraiser will bring you success.
