Ready to host your best fruit fundraiser this year? Remember these tips!
Create a Fundraising Committee
This can be especially helpful if you are fundraising for a large group. Regardless of the size, bringing together a handful of fundraisers who can be the leads for other volunteers can be beneficial. This way, there is a central point of contact who can keep others informed on which fundraising methods are working, how close they are to their goals, and what resources or help they may need from volunteers.
Automate Social Media Fundraising Messages
When you use Florida Indian River Grove’s mobile sales app, you can easily automate social media messages. When hosting your best fruit fundraiser, you want to reach your supporters through multiple channels. Posting to social media pages can be a great way to remind people of your ongoing fruit fundraiser and with the app, you set it and you’re done!
Automating messaging makes it easy to share periodic messages without worrying about forgetting to do so.
Fundraising groups always can use a few more hands on deck for the fundraiser, you can recruit volunteers through family or friends that may be invested in helping your group raise funds. For instance, parents may want to help their children’s sports team fundraiser to ensure they can enjoy those new uniforms or trips to championships.
You may not even need long-term volunteers! You can save valuable time by asking for help tabling at events or making or printing your marketing materials.
Encourage Participation Online
Even if you are hosting an in-person, local fundraiser, you don’t have to exclude virtual fundraising. Hosting your best fundraiser means reaching out to people through all possible methods. Your Florida Indian River Groves fundraising team provides you with a free website for your program, and your supporters can submit their orders here. You can ensure that supporters know this is an option for your fruit fundraiser. This way, people know they can place their orders on their schedule, even if they don’t have time to contribute when you first approach them.
