If you are just starting out learning everything there is to know about cancer research fundraising, it’s possible you feel a bit overwhelmed by all the information out there. Cancer fundraising is more complex than it looks on the surface, and it does require some effort and organization on your part, but none of those things has to be difficult. You want to have the best cancer research fundraising experience possible – getting yourself informed is the first step.
Whenever it seems like the stresses and anxieties of cancer research fundraising are getting to you, take a breath and reassure yourself. Cancer research fundraising is not all that difficult, and it’s easier than a lot of other types of fundraising because people see buying items for cancer research fundraising as helping a worthy cause. All you have to do is pick a cancer research fundraising activity that will work well for your group.
The biggest issue with cancer research fundraising is matching up your group to the right fundraising activity. If you have a large enough group that you can go for one of the more traditional catalog fundraisers, that’s great, and you can make a lot of money if you can meet minimum orders to offset the shipping charges. But if you have a smaller group, it’s probably best to stick to something that has the highest profits, low or no minimums, and free shipping. Our scratch card fundraisers work well for many cancer research fundraising teams because the minimums are so low and the profits can be as high as 90%, which is the highest of just about any cancer research fundraising activity.
