Booster fundraising is some of the most dedicated fundraisings out there. In fact, many booster clubs are formed for the sole purpose of raising money for the group they represent. This puts a lot of pressure on you when organizing a fundraising activity, because if fundraising is the whole point of the booster club, then people expect you to do a halfway decent job of it. This can prove daunting if you’re the kind of person who joined the booster club because you wanted to be helpful, not because you knew anything about how fundraising works.
So where do you start? How do you begin to know anything about successful booster fundraising? One smart first step is to enlist the help of those who have done it before. There are bound to be a few people in the booster club who have either organized fundraisers before or who at least have some helpful knowledge about how to get the whole thing organized. There is no need for you to do everything on your own, and in fact, that is the benefit of having a club – the members can support each other by helping out where they can, each in their own area of expertise with booster club fundraising.
