Getting the Ball Rolling with Fraternity Fundraising

Fraternity fundraising is these days, an almost essential part of making sure your fraternity stays afloat. Let’s face it, being a maintaining a chapter is not an inexpensive venture, and how much help can you realistically expect to get from your college when budget cuts are more extreme than ever? But don’t let it get you down, not all of the fraternity fundraising is doom and gloom. Not only can you have a serious amount of fun with your fundraiser, but the more fun you have with it, the more likely you are to be successful with it.

I’m sure that in your time at college you have quickly figured out the sobering truth about how much things cost in the real world, but that doesn’t mean you have to feel limited or just accept a lower standard for how you run your fraternity chapter. There are a reputation and a legacy to be upheld, and fraternity fundraising can show everyone just how dedicated you are to maintaining those high standards.

Reminding your fraternity brothers that fundraising is the way to pay for trips, for chapter house improvements, and for all kinds of other necessities, can really help keep the group focused and motivated about fraternity fundraising ideas. Obviously the group is more likely to stick together and focus on the goal if the road to the goal is interesting and fun, so make sure you keep the emphasis on the positive aspects. Remind them of all the cool things that can be done once you have completed your fundraising successfully. It sounds obvious, but when people understand that their efforts will reward them in a very direct way, fraternity fundraising becomes less of a chore and more of a labor of love.

Fraternities represent some of the oldest and most traditional student groups at universities around the country, and it’s important that that tradition is kept alive. With the right fraternity fundraising ideas and a group of motivated fraternity brothers, the sky is truly the limit where fraternity fundraising is concerned.
