Here's WHY the following fundraiser is currently my favorite fundraising idea:
1. It's easy to setup
2. It's cost-free
3. It's Hassle-Free
4. And it's relatively easy for you to promote (and for your supporters to share)!
Plus: it will continue to raise awareness for your cause, long after it's finished.
Let's talk money though...
Currently causes are raising between $500 and $10,000 with this idea (within a few weeks or a couple of months). There have also been quite a few who have raised well over that figure.
It may not have as much potential as a Peer-to-Peer Fundraising Event...
But it is considerably easier to setup, and is a fundraiser that can be done on your own and without a committee (although! I do suggest you still have a fundraising team).
Just like an ordinary T-Shirt Fundraiser, but with the power of the web...
Cost-Free - Easy to Promote - and No Inventory: You don't have to purchase shirts, get them printed, or ever deliver them... Everything is done through an online platform.
In a few easy steps, through this free online platform...
It's a brilliant concept, that gets amazing support...
As long as... your supporters are proud to wear your Cause T-Shirts (that's why you must make them awesome!)
It's called BonfireFunds... and I'm absolutely in love with what these guys have created!
And because I've invited you, they'll also give you an extra $1 for every shirt you sell (up to 100) from your fundraiser! ... It's a pleasure! :-)
Here's something you may hear me repeat often: "Hope marketing, or hope fundraising... Is not a strategy!"
If you want your T-Shirt campaign to succeed, you need to plan out a proper strategy for succeeding.
Simply putting up a fundraising page, a quickly designed shirt, AND HOPING you'll sell them.... WILL NOT GET YOU FUNDED!!!
Sorry for shouting... But I honestly want you to succeed!
Then sit down and plan your fundraiser carefully. Start by asking these questions...
I'd also spend some time on the BonfireFunds Blog, look through their Help Centre, and read their success stories...
You'll find some great pearls of advice through those who have already succeeded with this fundraiser!
And that's my Current Favorite Fundraising Idea done! I hope you find great success with it.
All the best of luck with your fundraising!
And don't forget - that by using my invitation to BonfireFunds - you'll raise an extra $1 for every shirt sold through your campaign (up to $100).
