Different Types of Band Fundraising Groups

Band fundraising is all about raising money for a purpose in a hassle-free manner. For example, if you love kids and are fond of music too, then you can go in for band fundraising to generate money for worthy causes that involve children.

Fundraising ideas can be successful only if you go about it in a proper manner with an authentic structure in place. A lot of businessmen and prominent personalities in your local area will surely be willing to support a worthy cause.

There are many causes that can be supported with the help of band fundraising. Some of them include:

Catholic fundraising School Band fundraising Candy fundraising Preschool/High school fundraising Daycare fundraising Fraternity fundraising Coffee fundraiser

A successful band fundraising event can be made possible with effective organizing and innovative marketing ideas. The first step is in identifying the right cause which actually requires funds. The next step involves convincing your local community leaders and prominent businessmen to support your cause.

A lot of private investors who have confidence in your ability to organize successful fundraising events are sure to help you with funds. The trick is in convincing them. The ability to market your ideas plays an important role here.

Once you convince a few corporates, individuals, or community leaders on your skill to manage successfully a fundraising event, you will find them willingly offering you access to an open fund with the help of which you can effectively get your band fundraising event going.

The main task is, therefore, to identify and convince genuine supporters. Presenting your proposal in a simple yet effective manner with a lot of conviction that comes only with a genuine, deep-rooted passion towards the cause plays a major role here. This requires a lot of skill, effort, and marketing strategies.

Finding willing volunteers to help you with the band fundraising event is another necessary aspect. A good set of volunteers who are as committed to the cause as you will ensure a grand success for your fundraising event.

Auntie Anne’s Pretzel

If you have walked down most malls you have probably smelled Auntie Anne pretzels and thought to yourself I would love to have the Auntie Annes pretzel recipe. You probably can’t get the recipe but you could hold a pretzel fundraiser using their great products.

What You Should Know

Auntie Anne’s Pretzel Fundraisers are one of the few fundraising programs that assure that you will make 50% profit on every pretzel or cinnamon bun kit you sell. You are selling the kits for $16 and your cost is $8.

Remember that you need to purchase both the pretzels and cinnamon buns in full cases. Cases are packed with 6 kits each. So you will need to round both products up or down to full cases quantities.

Shipping is free as long as you sell 10 or more cases. Smaller orders will be assessed a $65 shipping fee.

  • No Upfront Cost
  • Free brochures for your participants

The lowest profit percentage you will make from using scratch cards for fundraisers is 70%.

What You Should Know

Our Bag Garden Fundraisers are like candle fundraisers. Your profit percentage is not affected by the number of orders you take. You get 50% profit or half the selling price for every item you sell. That means smaller groups make the same profits for selling bag gardens as larger groups.
