Fundraising with Learn Appeal is easy and a lot of fun. We’re here to help you as much as we can.
With a bit of planning, most people exceed their expectations by a long way and have a lot of fun in the process! Follow these ten simple steps for successful fundraising:
Work as a team
You will find that involving your family, friends and colleagues will help spread the load.
You will be able to be more creative by brainstorming ideas, sharing best practice, and responsibilities.
Don’t overextend yourselves or try and do too much.
Stick to simple fundraising ideas, as these are easy to explain to others and also easy to organise.
Write a simple plan of the events you intend to do during the year and estimate how much you think you’ll raise from each event.
This is really key to successful fundraising as you’ll find that the more people that are aware of your efforts, the more support you will get.
It’s surprising what an element of competition can do to people!
If you haven’t already done so, include quizzes and competitions in your fundraising.
Think about involving your clients and suppliers – ask them to take part in raffles or sponsor you.
Everyone can involve friends and family by asking them to sponsor you or attend your events.
A special event, or making fundraising part of an existing event, can be an excellent way of getting more people involved and may also provide good PR opportunities.
Remember to say thank you to everyone who supports your fundraising efforts.
Also let them know how much money you have raised – as this is another big motivator!
Don’t forget that you are not alone.
We will regularly share good ideas and keep you updated with what others are doing so that you stay inspired!
