Type in»fundraising ideas» into any Internet search engine and You’re likely to have thousands of search results, ranging from bake sale ideas to companies offering fundraising opportunities
There are a number of things that separate a fantastic fundraising idea from a bad one. You should take note of the following when considering every idea:
* Price of getting going ought to be exactly what you can afford to invest – Be certain your overall cost doesn’t exceed your proceeds!
* Use of tools and abilities – Have you got the people to do it?
* Manpower – Have you got sufficient or can get enough for it
* Theme-appropriation – Do not try Marathon fundraising for elderly home organisation. It may not be suitable
* Appropriate for the size of your group – Make certain you have sufficient (and dedicated ) size to work on it. I recommend having some»extra» personnel for only in case functions.
* Usuage of expensive resources you Don’t Have
