As you know, in a slow economy, groups like yours are in more need of funds than ever. Easy fundraising ideas for your group are so important for raising the necessary money for uniforms, travel, supplies and more. With everyone watching their spending, choosing the right fundraiser for your group is crucial. What are the best fundraisers for these economic times? What are some easy fundraising ideas that will make the most money for your group with the least amount of work?
One of the best fundraising ideas we’ve come across, is the discount card fundraiser. Discount Card Fundraisers are an incredible way for your group to offer a very valuable and easy way for your friends, family and supporters to save money. Rather than purchasing products that they may not need, your friends, family and neighbors can help your group raise a lot of money by purchasing a discount card that saves them money at merchants in your area.
Discount card fundraisers are excellent ways for merchants, restaurants and stores in your community to support your group and in turn for the community members to support those businesses that support YOU.
Each member of your group sells the discount cards to their neighbors, friends and family for a nominal fee. You can even sell your discount cards at local events, at supermarkets or farmer’s markets. Your group makes money and the buyers of the discount card fundraiser SAVE money. The more discount fundraising cards your members sell, the more profit your group makes.
A discount card fundraiser is now easier than ever for your group. One great way to take the challenge out of the discount card fundraiser for your group is to order from a company that does the work for you. One company, ABC Fundraising has created a way to make the discount card fundraiser absolutely turnkey for your group. Instead of you calling the local businesses and visiting restaurants to try to obtain sponsors for your discount fundraising card, ABC Fundraising will obtain the sponsors for you.
All you have to do is create a list of local businesses that you would like to see on your discount card and wait for your personalized and localized discount fundraising cards to arrive.
Discount cards are such an easy sell – who doesn’t want to save money on food, dry cleaning, coffee, working out, home goods and more? The possibilities with discount card fundraisers are truly endless.
A great way to get your group motivated for your discount card fundraiser is to have group members be involved in brainstorming potential merchants to use for the discount fundraising cards. By being involved in the selection of the merchants, you can ensure that your group members will be more excited about the deals that are offered on your discount fundraising card. If they are excited, their supporters will be excited and your group will sell more cards and raise more money!
It’s important to note that when doing a discount card fundraiser, you want to get started as soon as possible as you have to anticipate a lead time of 4-6 weeks for your group to get personalized discount cards.
