Here are a few tips and suggestions you should consider for when fundraising with kids...

  • Equip Them Properly - Obviously depending on the fundraiser, make sure that they have all the right information, equipment, sales forms and/or flyers etc. for them to fundraise properly with.
  • Teach Them How To Sell - This is obviously specifically for sales driven fundraisers. Teaching your kids some basic sales techniques will help increase your fundraising sales by huge amounts.

    I can't emphasize the importance of this. A little bit of work on this and it will pay huge dividends to your fundraiser.

I'd highly recommend you read this fundraising eBook by Jack Atwell to learn how to give your kids some basic and effective fundraising sales training.

  • Or Teach Them How To Promote - If it's not a sales fundraiser there is a good chance the kids' purpose in the fundraiser will be to promote the fundraiser.

    For example, for an Online Donations Fundraiser, give them some ideas and tips on how to promote the fundraiser through Facebook and other social media they may use. Plus also on how to spread the word effectively offline!
  • Hold Them Accountable Regularly - Kids have the tendency to forget things or forget about things. So if they are taking payments or collecting cash, have regular money 'hand ins' before they lose the money somewhere (or spend it themselves).

    Also remind them regularly about the fundraiser and what they need to be doing.
  • *Extremely Important* Take Precautions For Their SAFETY - Lastly, but definitely not least, always make sure you take the kids safety into consideration when running any fundraiser.

    Take any precautions necessary and prep the kids about those precautions and their safety!
