Fundraisers for Fraternities Are a Team Effort

Fundraisers for fraternities are not easy under any circumstances. You might think it’s just about going out there and selling things, but there’s a lot more to it than that.

There’s a whole series of events that happens beforehand, to make sure that you get the best possible result from the selling portion of your fundraiser. If you want to do this right, you need everyone on your side. You’re lucky in that your fraternity chapter is full of ambitious men who can get this fundraiser done right, but if you want this fundraiser to turn out for the best, you’ll want to get everyone organized in the right way.

A meeting is the best way to start out fraternity fundraisers. Get everyone together in an official capacity, and discuss the financial issues that your chapter is having. Make sure everyone understands exactly what the fundraiser is for (chapter house improvements, a trip, or whatever), and how much money needs to be made.

Present the fundraisers for fraternities that you have researched, and explain the benefits and drawbacks of each one. Then you can let them discuss things or ask questions, after which time you can take a vote as to which fundraising idea you want to pursue. As for organizing fundraisers for fraternities, delegation is a great idea.

Choose people you can trust to get certain jobs done, like keeping track of orders or making sure that the money is safe. If you are doing a pre-sale fundraiser, you will also need at least a couple of people to be there on delivery day and make sure all of that gets sorted out correctly.

Having this support network of people on your fundraising team is one of the biggest factors in running successful fundraisers for fraternities, so you’ll want to take advantage of every bit of help you can.
