The type of fundraiser you choose should be determined by the size and abilities of your members. Use the following suggestions to help your catholic school find a fundraiser that works:
Large Schools of Groups – A fundraising group with lots of members is very lucky. You can choose almost any type of catholic school fundraiser, and execute it successfully. A direct-sale fundraiser, like coffee backpacks or lollipops, are easy to coordinate and get started which is definitely something to consider if you are handling several people.
Small Schools or Groups- Small groups of fundraisers are perfectly capable of raising lots of money. The scratch card fundraiser is great for small groups. Each person in the group raises $100 when the card is completed. Pizza and Sandwich Shop cards are also a good way to raise lots of money, with just a few people.
Groups with no starting funds – If your school has little to no start-up money it is not a problem ? just look into brochure fundraising for your first project. The materials are sent to you FREE of charge, and you start earning your profits right away. Find a product that will work for your area, and contact your fundraising consultant with any questions you might have. Be careful to check for any shipping or minimum requirements before starting.
Groups with start-up money – If your school can afford it, one of the best catholic school fundraising ideas is to have a candy sale. Hershey’s $2 Bars offer an amazing profit return for the amount you pay, and it is name brand candy that your supporters will love. Decide how many carriers each team member is responsible for, and call a fundraising consultant, or go online to place your order.
It is also a good idea to think about where your group will be selling, and to whom they will be selling it may help determine the type of product you choose. No matter the size or status of your group, your catholic school fundraiser is sure to be a success when you find the right fundraiser!
