Planning your fundraising ideas and running your fundraising plans!

Assistance with planning your fundraising ideas and running your fundraising plans!

Have you heard of the saying: You can have a million $ idea but unless you implement it successfully it is worthless.

Planning is essential for a successful fundraiser
If you’re new to the role of fundraising coordinator, life will be much simpler when you adequately plan your fundraising events and programs through the various stages of setting them up, running and completing them. If you’re an old hand at fundraising, I can assure you there’s always something new you will find that will help you!

AFS_logo_500x260

What Australian Fundraising can do for you?
Australian Fundraising is a ONE STOP SHOP for fundraising coordinators. Over the last 15 years we have established our own collection of successful fundraising programs.

But just as importantly, we have developed and supply a range of knowledge, materials and services that substantially supports fundraising coordinators in their quest to run successful and profitable fundraisers in an easy and efficient manner. When you’re successful, we’re successful!

We can help you develop a strategy for various fundraising programs and events throughout the year or season. We take into account your budget, location, the size and type of your group and past successes and failures.

Elements to Planning
You can easily download two free Fundraising Planning Guides at the Free Tools section on our website (see below). Without going into too much detail here, I set out some commentary on each of the planning elements. But there is nothing better than a bit of a chin wag with our team of friendly and helpful consultants. We’re ready to talk to you on 1300 133 022. Continue reading

Choosing Fundraising Ideas, Fundraising Programs and Events

Looking for fundraising ideas and programs for your school, child care centre, sporting club and community group?

There are so many options such as a cookie dough drive, fun runs, walk-a-thons, spell-a-thons, kick-a-thons, fancy dress day, sausage sizzle, movie night, chocolate drive, car boot sale, raffles, fetes and fairs, cent auction, plates, discos, trivia night, Mother’s Day/Father’s Day stalls and much more.

And with so many co-ordinators working and being time poor, in so many cases you need to use the services of an outside fundraising company that supply products and services and can assist you in setting up your fundraisers.

Don’t do too much!
Before we get into too much detail, a word of caution: don’t run too many fundraisers as you will alienate your parents and supporters and they will cease supporting your fundraisers? And also your co-ordinator will get burnt out. It is best to run a major fundraiser per term than 5-6 smaller fundraisers.

AFS_logo_150x78
We’ve been around since 1999
We’re plugging our own products and services but at Australian Fundraising we’ve been in fundraising since 1999, have developed a range of highly successful fundraising programs, supply all of the materials and services you require to run a successful campaign and we’re dedicated to the success of your fundraisers. We’re a proud family owned and run business, not a multinational. With the support of our friendly and knowledgeable staff, we all do our best and work hard for your families.
