School Fundraiser Tips: Use Emails

School Fundraiser Tips - Writing EmailsOne of the most important parts of a successful school fundraiser is promoting it. When working with our fundraisers, we find that chairs struggle with how to get the word out effectively. A cover letter can really be a great kickoff to the fundraiser and can get people excited about supporting the cause. Another important factor to consider is the email. Take the traditional cover letter to the next level with effective emails to send out to parents. Emails are a great way to save paper and are often the easiest way to get in touch with parents at your school. Check if your school offers an email database, as many schools will allow this type of email for fundraisers. Talk to the teachers to see if they can help you with getting all of the parents’ updated email addresses. After all, it is for a good cause!

Successful Fundraisers Start with the Reps

Fundraising Tips - Mixed Bag Designs Fundraiser Sales RepsIn the fundraising business, there’s always a lot of talk about how to be successful and making the right choices for your organization. The important decisions in fundraising run the gamut, from choosing the right products to making a fundraiser plan and proper timeline. Something that you may not give much thought to but is equally crucial to a fundraiser’s success is choosing the right fundraising partner based on their account representatives.

The fundraising company‘s sales rep represents far more than a company’s sales strategy, they are your engine that can really rev up your fundraiser’s profits. When planning a fundraiser and selecting a company, contact a few and see not only who responds but HOW they respond. Do you get a simple email or a personal note with a bit of creative flair? What is the rep’s communication style? Are they friendly yet straightforward? Do they take the initiative right away and offer up interesting ideas and help? All of these questions should be raised when first selecting what kind of partner you are seeking for your fundraiser.
