Your ‘Big’ School Fundraiser – 3 reasons schools should have one.

We encourage schools to host one ‘Big’ fundraiser per semester. You will gain the following benefits:

1) Focused efforts
2) Higher profits
3) Increased participation

Having one main fundraiser allows you to focus marketing efforts on one thing. Instead of a fundraiser that goes on forever, a ‘Big’ school fundraiser could be one day (in the case of an event) and only two weeks in the case of a gift catalog fundraiser or a cookie dough fundraiser. This means you can promote ahead of time effectively, then run a concise fundraiser.

You will experience higher profits because the ‘Big’ or main fundraisers in existence today are designed to generate top-dollar for your organization and generally include prizes and promotions that help you raise more! Plus, an average sale from $10-$15 per item means that your group makes more per sale than with any other types of fundraisers.

Because of the promotions surrounding ‘Big’ school fundraising efforts, prizes and promotions and fun (in the case of school-wide events) creates excitement and kids want to be part of the action! Use incentives wherever you can to increase sales and you’ll have a winning fundraiser!

There you have it… 3 quick tips on reasons your school should host one ‘Big’ school fundraiser per semester.
