If fall is the time that your school does most of its fundraising activities, it would be a very smart idea to consider a school calendar fundraiser. Calendars are very popular items anytime from about Halloween onward, and during the end of the Thanksgiving season, people are really starting to think not only about the coming year but about Christmas gifts, as well. A school calendar fundraiser is a perfect opportunity to step right into that market for calendars and help people out with their Christmas shopping while benefiting the school as well.
A school calendar fundraiser is one of those things that can turn into an annual event pretty easily. Calendars never go out of style, because people are keen to ring in the new year with a clean slate and a fresh calendar ahead of them. If you start to organize your school fundraiser early in the fall semester, you can get the kids selling their calendars just before the Thanksgiving holiday. This gives plenty of time to process orders and get your school calendar fundraiser completed before the kids break for Christmas.
A school calendar fundraiser is a pre-sell fundraiser, and this means that you don’t have to put any money down upfront. We will send you all the brochures and order forms you need to get started, and your fundraising consultant will be able to assist you with any questions you have about how to proceed with your school calendar fundraiser. The concept is pretty simple: the kids take the product brochures around the neighborhood, they explain to their customers what the school calendar fundraiser is about, and they take orders and collect the money. Most people are pretty sympathetic to any cause children are involved in, so a school calendar fundraiser is a great idea to help bring in some much-needed money for school teams, clubs, and programs.
