Cheerleading Fundraiser

As with most groups that have to travel to participate in events, fundraising is an important part of group activities, and for cheerleading this is no different. Organizing a cheerleading fundraiser, indeed any fundraiser, can be stressful, but we aim to remove some of that stress here at Practical Fundraising.

Try to find a fun activity that everyone will enjoy, or an interesting or useful product, because then you will get a lot more volunteers to help you, and of course a lot more people will participate and your funds will increase.

Easy Fundraisers

by Cassie Kale

You are probably here searching for information on fundraisers and fundraiser ideas. We want to make your fundraiser easy for you, it doesn't have to be a difficult task setting up your fundraiser, and in fact the easier it is, the higher your success rate!

You know that you would like to host a fundraiser for your company, school or organization to raise funds, but how can you set your fundraiser in motion? This fundraising article will help you to plan your fundraising event so that it's easy and successful!

What are your fundraising goals? This is most important question, the more specific your fundraising goals, the more successful your event will be. How much money do you need to raise from your fundraising event? How many people will be involved? When will it start and how long will your fundraiser last? If you are on a deadline for the funds you need to fundraise, be sure to allot yourself enough time for the fundraiser to end.

Volunteers, and several of them, will assure that your fundraiser will run more smoothly. If this is your first fundraising event you should allot yourself some extra time should any unexpected problems arise.

Picking the right product for fundraising is vitally important to your fundraising event. While there are so many neat fundraising options make sure to pick a product that you think your target audience will like, something that creates an impulse buy! Depending on how much money you need to earn will also be a factor in your deciding.

Candles, Chocolate, Magazines and coffee are four of the top fundraising products that are commonly chosen for fundraising events. They are items that most people will like and buy on an impulse. They are reasonably priced, most people will buy more than one and they are products people would normally buy anyway. This will make it easier for you and your organization.

I like the idea of a cheerleading fundraiser being to sell candles. So many families are now buying and using candles in their homes, not only for decoration, but to provide a relaxing fragrance or a romantic light. And what's more, once the candle or candles have burnt for a few hours, they will need replacing!

These days you are not limited to plain white utility candles. Your cheerleading fundraiser can offer a whole range of exciting colours and interesting candle fragrances  to suit everyone's taste, and they are not in the least bit fattening!          ~Site Editor

We suggest your fundraiser be no less than one week but no more than two, three tops. One week is not quite long enough to get the momentum going but anything past 2-3 weeks, takes away the sense of urgency to buy today.

Taking money at the time the order is placed is your best option. The last thing you want to do is chase someone down for money because things come up or to be short. So we advise you take the money before handing over the products.

And that's it in a nutshell; our fundraising tips that should help you get your fundraiser going with a bang! Remember organization is essential to help your group meet your fundraising goals.
