How to Have a Successful Fundraiser!

July 31, 2017

Fundraisers are a great way to make money for a nonprofit organization.  The problem is, many people hold fundraisers for it not to make the impact they had hoped.  When planning a fundraiser by yourself it can take a lot of effort so no one wants it to be unsuccessful.  We want to make the process easy for you.  If you or your company is planning a fundraiser there are ways to ensure its success.  Follow these tips and your fundraiser is sure to be a success. 

  • Have a purpose

Before even planning the type of fundraiser you must clearly outline the purpose behind it.  Why are you holding this fundraiser?  Having a clear reason for the fundraiser will not only give you a guideline and more passion for the fundraiser but will also bring in more attraction.  If you tell people you are raising money for a specific reason they will be more inclined to participate.  Here at Bricks R Us, we are committed to making you 100% satisfied with your product.  We want to help your organization make a difference with quality products and with our ongoing support.

  • Budget

In order to make money, you must spend money, but you don’t want to be spending more than you are making.  Set a budget for your fundraiser, enough to make a profit but not too much that you will lose money.  Try not to exceed the budget, and to do that you must leave a little room in the budget for unforeseen expenses.  Here at Bricks R Us we guarantee the lowest price.  We’re committed to having the lowest prices so if you find a competitor with a lower price and provide us with the company name or a written quote and we’ll match it!

  • Market your fundraiser

People must be aware that you are holding a fundraiser in order for it to be successful.  If no one knows about it, no one will participate.  Market your fundraiser with enough time before so people have time to become aware and prepare.  Use multiple methods in order to reach the most amount of people possible.  Letters, emails, flyers and print ads are great traditional ways to market your fundraiser, but you should also use social media.  Facebook, instagram, and twitter will allow more people to be reached.  If you have people in the company or close to you, share the posts more people will see it.  When you fundraise with Bricks R Us we provide you with marketing for your campaign.  We are the only brick engraving company to offer a free online ordering system with the app. 

  • Return on Investment

People are more likely to participate in your fundraiser if they get something in return.  Donors are investing in you and it’s only fair for them to get something in return.  Whether it’s a material object or a simple thank you, your donor will feel appreciated and will be more inclined to donate again or participate in any future fundraisers you hold.  When fundraising with Bricks R Us your donors will be able to leave their legacy or memory at a special place that will last a lifetime!
