Fund raising

There are many ways to raise money for a good cause, and these simple suggestions can help make fund raising easy. It's important to set reachable goals, and stick to them. This is a task that maybe somewhat overwhelming, so don't try and take it on by yourself. Getting everyone involved, by recruiting volunteers elders, and young alike, is a great way to get the community together. Raffle ticket drawings, bake sales, and yard sales, are excellent ways to bring in the cash.

Having a raffle ticket drawing can be accomplished by raffling a purchased or donated item. It's best to choose an item that is of great interest to all, after all the goal is to sell as many raffle tickets as possible. The tickets themselves can be made, and distributed by the volunteers. Raffle ticket pricing should be set so that they will be easy to sell, be sure to include the date, and time of the event. Giving yourself, and your volunteers plenty of time to make ticket sales, will ensure a successful raffle ticket drawing.

Having a bake sale is a fun, and delicious way to raise money. Cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and candy are all delicious treats that are hard to pass up. Baking these goodies with your kids, or friends, and letting them take part in the all important decorating let's them know that they are important as well. Setting a time, date, and place for the event, and rounding up the volunteers, to help in the booth are just a few things that you need to get this sale in gear.

Having a benefit yard sale, or garage sale is another great idea. This event usually requires more of an effort. Selecting a good location where there will be plenty of customers is the key to success. Making a list of all the items donated, setting a time schedule for the volunteers, and pricing all items, ensures a hassle free day. It's a good idea to have a specific person in charge at the cash box. This ensures that there will be no mix up, and it's a lot less frantic than having a lot of people trying to make a sale all at once. If needed, have two cash boxes, on opposite ends of the yard sale. Last, but not least, advertise a week in advance in the local newspaper, and hand out fliers a day or two before the event.
