Fundraising ideas with proven results
You need to raise money for your small group, cause or charity. With time constraints and budget needs always a priority, it’s important to focus on fundraising ideas that produce proven results and won’t bankrupt your time or meager resources. Whether the money you raise is to promote awareness of breast cancer, support research, or finance your non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the right approach is key to your success.
The best nonprofit fundraising ideas are the simplest ones
Perhaps you have some creative ideas of your own to raise money, but if you have never run a fundraiser or your fundraising campaigns have gotten stale, it’s time to take a fresh look at your approach. Here are some quick ideas and things to consider before you embark on your fundraising:
I am a sales rep for Yankee Candle fundraising. I do also represent other fundraising companies under the umbrella of my own company which is Black River Fundraising. I contract with Yankee Candle for territory; specifically the state of Vermont (where I live across from the Black River) and the adjacent counties in New York. All Yankee Candle sales in my territory are booked by me. If you call Yankee Candle and ask to start a sale you will be referred to the sales rep that handles your particular area.
