As with any community group, your church may occasionally require some outside funding to support the many programs and local initiatives it participates in. This is where fundraising can be a significant help, as it can help provide your group or cause with extra funds while fostering community between your fundraisers and your supporters. At Florida Indian River Groves, we have years of experience partnering with church groups to help them host successful fruit fundraisers. Our delicious fruit is always fresh and always easy to sell to those in your church and community. When you host your next church fundraising event, remember some of these tips, and be sure to utilize your complete toolkit from Florida Indian River Groves.
Market Your Cause Throughout Your Community
When you sell fresh fruit with Florida Indian River Groves, we provide you with a toolkit full of fundraising resources. It includes full-color brochures and digital resources like a free fundraising website that can collect orders from participants. You will want to use the tools available to you to spread the word about your fruit fundraiser. Members of your fundraising team can also use our free mobile app to share news of the fundraiser with their friends through email, texts, and social media posts.
Go Beyond the Tried and True
When planning for your church fundraising event, you may start with reaching out to supporters who have contributed in the past. However, if you want your fundraisers to be as successful as possible, it’s also worth reaching out to new supporters.
Don’t limit yourself to sharing your fundraiser within your church community. When you reach out to your wider community, you may reach charitable individuals or other church groups who feel compelled to donate to your cause. Craft fundraising messages that explain what you are fundraising for and who the funds will help. Ultimately, you may be able to interest new families in your church and its work year-round.
Keep Your “Eyes on the Prize!”
The key to a successful fundraiser is staying motivated – and what helps you stay motivated is remembering why you are hosting your fundraiser. Whether you are raising funds for a new building project, a missionary trip, a community event, or anything else, you want to make sure your fundraisers and supporters know how they are helping your cause.
Your enthusiasm for your project will shine through and attract even more support! When you combine your passion for your goals with the delicious appeal of our fruit products, you’re sure to find success at your next church fundraising event.
