Fundraising is an essential part of any school, child care centre, sporting group or charity that need to raise much needed funds.  Picking the right one for your group can be the difference between making a huge profit or a minuscule one.

Planning a Fundraiser! Use our free guide. Part 1

Even though planning a fundraiser is a large job, it is often very straightforward to do. Once you have everything organised to achieve your goal, it will be well-worth your time and effort.  By following this fundraiser planning formula below your fundraising event will have a greater chance of success.

Know your purpose – why are you raising funds?

A fundraiser is often done to raise money for a specific reason. Are you raising money for new sports equipment for your club or new computers for your school? So before planning a fundraiser, you must know why you need to raise money in the first place. From there, you can start formulating your goals and objectives.

Set your goals and objectives

This is a very important step because your goal will lead you on to the next step. Aside from that, it gives you and your team motivation for the project. This is very similar to the “Knowing your purpose” section above. However this is where you decide how much money you need to raise – e.g. are you wanting to add 2 new computers to the school computer lab or 20? Deciding this now makes your planning easier.

Set your budget

When planning a fundraiser you must keep your budget in mind, so consider expenses that you will incur. Your plan should include a detailed spending plan that lists all the costs that will be needed to hold your fundraiser. Remember to include costs before, during and after the fundraiser. 

Determine your target audience

When planning a fundraiser you must also consider your target audience. To maximize involvement, identify who will be attending your event or buying the fundraising products. This is a crucial step when planning a fundraiser to ensure you reach your target.

So who is your target audience? The general public, people in your neighbourhood, or are you focusing on a specific group like school-age children or your clubs fans. Deciding this ahead of time helps with items like advertising your fundraiser.

Fixing your timeline

To make your fundraiser a success, you must schedule the date and times. While organising a fundraiser, it is essential to set a schedule which will guarantee sufficient time for your group, but not so far in the future that people lose interest. Also ensure that you have checked the calendar for other events like holidays and public events that may impact your fundraiser to ensure that there’s no overlapping of activities.

However, if you need any help with this seek advice from seasoned members who have been part of such events in the past. Remember that Australian School and Club Fundraising Specialists has been helping schools, sports clubs and other organizations for over 15 years.

Identify the setup of your fundraiser

In planning a fundraiser you need to make sure you’re organized ahead of time. It should cover all the particulars of the actual fundraiser. For example, you need to know dates, times, products, foods that will be served (if needed), volunteers etc.

Market your fundraiser

Promoting plays a key role in holding a successful and profitable fundraiser. In this case, you need to draw up your marketing strategy plan. The more people that know about your fundraiser, the greater chance it has of being successful and making a profit. There are many different ways to promote your fundraiser – social media (like Facebook and twitter), emails and newsletters are just a few. These marketing platforms are the latest advancement to help create a buzz about your fundraising event.

What we already have announced are some terrific new varieties for our popular cookie dough fundraising program:

Some have described this cookie as better tasting than the original Choc Chunk. This could become our No.1 cookie! And we have made the price very reasonable to ensure affordability.

Lower Fat/Lower Sugar/Lower Salt Choc Chunk
This is genuinely a good tasting cookie. You will be pleasantly surprised. We were!

Caramel Fudge
Caramel flavoured throughout and combined with low fat caramel fudge pieces. A really nice, balanced caramel flavour.

Triple Choc
The Triple Choc is back! Dark choc chunks, white choc chunks and a chocolate syrup. For the real chocolate tragic!

This is a beauty: Doggie Biscuit Dough Treats
You and your children will want to get a pooch just to bake these cheese flavoured Doggie Biscuit Dough Treats. Sampled and overwhelmingly approved by a “focus” group of doggies, including Kailua the leader of the pack, Billy G’s family puppy!

And we’re providing free freight in 1st term!
We’ve also launched our range of gourmet pies and sausage rolls. You have the choice of receiving order forms with cookie dough only or cookie dough and pies. The pies and sausage rolls are currently only available in QLD, NSW and VIC.

We will also make available our support materials that include Ebooks on various types of fundraising, planning calendars, how to run fundraisers.

Please phone our office on 1300 133 022 to order your copy of our 2014 Fundraising Catalogue and order and sponsorship brochures.
