Check Off Your Holiday List with Your Fall Fundraiser
Thanks to our sponsor, See’s Candies, for this festive post on fundraising!
We bet you’re thinking about your Fall fundraiser (along with two million other things)! This year, you’re thinking strategically — you’re implementing all those tips for efficiency you picked up on Instagram, you’re thinking two-for-one to make the holidays a little easier by planning ahead with the Fall Fundraiser!
With the Fall holiday season upon us, event invites are sure to start rolling in soon. So, candy fundraising with a company like See’s Candies is a no brainer. Raise money for your class, team, troop or organization (earn up to 50% in profits!) and get ahead on your gift shopping at the same time.
No matter what the occasion, you and your buyers will be prepared. Bring a box of See’s assorted chocolates to the party host or pick up a box of See’s Peanut Brittle as your white elephant gift. Grab some Toffee-ettes for Boss’s Day in October and don’t forget the chocolate candy bars and lollypops for stocking stuffers!
The holiday season is also the perfect time to show appreciation for those other special people in your life – like your house cleaner, yard guy, and babysitter who work hard all year to make your day-to-day a little easier. And what about your kids’ teachers and coaches? This year, give them See’s Candies as a sweet thank you for all they do, and make up to 50% profit when you do!
Pumpkin Carving Fundraiser
Help your community get ready for Halloween by hosting a pumpkin carving contest. Provide the pumpkins and necessary carving tools, and assemble a panel of judges. Ask participants to pay an entry fee that will go toward supporting your organization. Then watch the creative magic happen! The winner gets bragging rights for an entire year and everyone goes home with a carved pumpkin to decorate their porch.
Pro Tip: Ask your community for pumpkin donations or talk to the local pumpkin farm about a discounted price on a bulk purchase of pumpkins for your event.
Gift Wrap Fundraiser
Everyone needs wrapping paper for winter holiday gifts, right? So, why not ask them to support your school fundraiser and spare themselves a trip to the store? There are a number of fundraising companies that will help you coordinate your gift wrap fundraiser.
Pro Tip: You could also set up a volunteer gift wrapping booth closer to the holidays and ask participants for donations to take that hassle off their hands, too!
Wreath and Poinsettia Fundraiser
Deck the community’s halls with wreaths, garland, centerpieces and other Christmas decorations while you earn money for your group with a wreath and poinsettia fundraiser. Friends, neighbors, and even local shop owners will love adding a festive touch to their spaces while also supporting a good cause.
Pro Tip: Scan in your fundraiser brochure and post it on social media with a brief message about your cause to spread the word!
