|Our Top 5 Fall Fundraisers|
For back to school, football, cheer, youth group or any other fundraising need this fall, here are our top 5 fall fundraising ideas! Yard work lets your group enjoy the final days of the season outdoors, while our other faves are good in any season and won't be stopped by cooler temperatures.
#1 Yard Work
One of our favorite fundraisers period. Yard work fundraisers can take place in spring, summer, fall, or all the way through for a recurring seasonal fundraiser!
Why yard work? Because everyone who owns a home with a yard needs yard work done! Take orders from local homeowners for a good yard cleaning on one weekend, or sign them up for service throughout the season. Keep your rates competitive with local landscaping companies.
Always do the cleaning in a team, with adult chaperones. This makes the fundraiser way more fun, faster, and safer. Never send a kid alone to someone's house!
#2 The Online Magazine Fundraiser
This unique program combines 2 of our favorite things for fundraising: magazines and the internet!
Magazines are a great fundraising product because just about everyone buys and reads magazines. They’re also a great non-food alternative to sugary fundraising snacks, and are something that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
The internet is one of the most powerful fundraising tools around because it allows you to easily reach potential supporters nationwide, and it makes fundraising faster than ever before!
With the online magazine fundraiser, you get a free online magazine store that offers over 650 different magazines, so there’s sure to be something for everyone, and subscriptions are offered at up to 85% off cover prices. Your store is completely online, and has a built-in email feature that allows you to invite people all across the country to your fundraising store.
All this, and you get 40% of the total sales as your fundraising profit. You never touch an order form, make deliveries or handle inventory. It’s all online. Even your profit checks are sent to you by mail each month!
Frozen cookie dough usually comes in tubs, or in pre-portioned, “place and bake” varieties. It’s a convenient product that makes baking at home easy as pie, and makes it a fun, no-fuss activity that kids can take part in too!
And through fundraisers, your customers have more cookie dough choices than they would typically find in grocery stores. That’s why people love cookie dough fundraisers so much!
Any time a fundraising product is loved by customers, it’s definitely a top fundraiser.
This unique fundraiser is a sure winner because first aid kits are something every group, business and household should have.
Also, first aid kit sales are easy to organize for any season. Imagine setting up an outdoor chocolate sale in the middle of a steamy July! All that melted candy would not be good for sales. First aid kits, however, can easily be sold no matter what the weather, making them a definite top fundraiser.
Online auctions are like a worldwide yard sale, but so much easier to organize! You can sell just about anything on auction sites, and the wide reach of the internet means you can reach potential buyers worldwide, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
If this seems like it’s too much for your internet skills to handle, an online auction company that exists specifically for online auction fundraisers, and offers years experience in the field, is cMarket. They also offer all kinds of tools, including auction success tips, backed up by years of research and studies of online fundraising auctions.
