• Fundraiser Selling TipsSet a starting date and closing date for your fundraiser. Two weeks is the ideal time frame. Anything more than two weeks can be counter-productive.
  • Clearly define the reason and goals for your fundraiser.
  • Assign volunteers to help run and administer the fundraiser – like distributing the brochures and the products when they arrive.
  • Have each participant make a list of family and friends who may be interested in supporting your fundraising efforts.
  • Promotion and word of mouth is the biggest key. Spread the word.
  • Take advantage of using our free web page promotion and print it on all promotional materials.
  • Keep copies of all order forms for your records.
  • Double-check all payments and orders before calling or sending your order to Canada Fundraiser. This will save you a big headache if your orders are correct.
  • Rely on your product fundraising company professional for suggestions and advice.
  • Keep copies of all forms turned in by volunteers before sending them to the fundraising company.
  • Keep your participants enthusiastic and having fun! Offer the ones who sell the most a reward such as free pizza or books, or even bigger items if you can strike a deal with a local store or restaurant.
