Rotarians are forever getting involved in humanitarian projects and charity work. In fact, it’s pretty much what they do – helping make life better for everyone they come into contact with. It’s important to work, and that’s why it’s also important that for your latest project, you choose Rotary fundraisers that reflect your commitment to what you’re doing, and that will help you get to your goals in the most efficient way possible.
It’s not always easy to choose the perfect fundraiser that fits your project, but with a few guidelines, you’ll be well on your way sooner than you think.
Is this your first time being in charge of organizing Rotary fundraisers? If so, being super-organized is even more important than it is with experienced organizers. You’ll want to do a lot of planning and sketching things out before you get started.
How much money, to the dollar, does your project need? Is there any margin of error there? How quickly is the money required? How many volunteers can you reliably count on for your fundraising team?
I know it sounds like Rotary fundraisers are a lot of hard work, and yes, that’s true, but if you do this administrative stuff at the beginning and get it out of the way, the rest of your fundraiser should go a lot more smoothly.
Once you have all your numbers crunched and you know who will be working with you, you can choose a fundraising idea that matches up to your needs. Smaller groups will want to stick with fundraisers that have higher profit margins, and where there are no or low minimum orders and no shipping charges.
You don’t want to have a successful fundraiser, only to get stuck paying shipping so high that it significantly cuts into your profits. Check out our selection of Rotary fundraisers, and see which ones might work well for your group.
