You have the cause, the idea, and the enthusiasm to run an effective fundraiser. Of course, it is easier said than done. No matter how big or how small the fundraiser is, the process is always the same. There are multiple factors that contribute to a successful fundraiser and it starts with proper planning.
Watch your fundraiser grow by following these 4 easy steps.
Step 1: Set up a fundraiser
Start by picking your dates. Planning a fundraiser around an event; such as Back to School or Parent Night, can help boost participation. After you register as a Fundraiser Chair on Mixed Bag Designs website (or sign in if you are an existing customer), follow the instructions to sign our fundraiser agreement. Now that you are registered, it’s time to start recruiting volunteers to help with your fundraiser. They are important and will save you money. Offer signup sheets for each task or create a digital version through signup.com. Break down the larger jobs into smaller increments. Don’t be afraid to ask!

While there are occasions to be charitable all year long, fall provides several unique opportunities to get creative. The weather is just right, kids are in school and everyone is back from their vacations. The list of venues for your fall fundraising ideas are in great abundance, from a school cafeteria to your own backyard. If you are not getting the results you need with door-to-door fundraising, it is time to get creative. Consider supplementing these ideas into your Mixed Bag Designs fundraiser.

You might be thinking “It’s too early to think about the holidays,” but did you realize there are only 13 more Sundays until Christmas? It doesn’t sound that far off anymore, does it? Catalog fundraisers are a versatile and easy way to earn money for your school, group or cause. However, some times of the year are easier than others to urge supporters to purchase products to help your organization. At Mixed Bag Designs we’ve found that Fall fundraisers are the most profitable time to run a catalog sale. What’s one of the biggest reasons? Holiday gifts!
Shopping for holiday gifts while also supporting a fundraiser is a great way to knock a couple “to-dos” off your list while helping a great cause. In addition, shopping from a catalog or through our online store to support a fundraiser saves the hassle of shopping at crowded malls or fighting traffic.
