School Fundraiser Organization Tips Part 2
Posted by Nick Niesen on November 8th, 2010
Hopefully, you've already read Part One of these tips for organizing your school fundraiser. A smart plan can make your school fundraiser much easier. Here are some other considerations:
Using a consultant
Use a fundraising consultant to take the hassle out of organizing your event and put the ?fun? back in fundraising again.
Protect your reputation
That?s not to say that percentage isn?t important, but consider other factors as well. Look at whether sales incentives are included, hidden costs that may arise, sales brochures that cost extra, poor quality merchandise that can hurt future sales, and so on.
Insist on best value
Beware of perfuming the pig
If you overcharge your customers for common items, they?ll resent it, consciously or subconsciously. Compare results with records from past fundraisers to check what price points were offered before on similar items. Be certain to give fair market value for the items your group is offering. You want those customers back the next time, don?t you?
Setup calling trees
Use co-chairs for each mission critical function. Cross train on all tasks. Keep duplicate records of important details in a different location as part of your backup plan. In the world of technology, this is called disaster recovery or disaster prevention. Double count all deliveries coming in and going out.
Setting goals and deadlines
Always have a hard deadline for the sales period to end, nothing more than 17 days. Seventeen days is two weeks plus an extra weekend, the prime selling time.
Don?t forget to smell the roses
