How to reach your goals with fundraising products 

Selling fundraising products is a great strategy to generate funds. It’s a good idea to offer something in return for a contribution, whether a tasty treat, souvenirs, or other valuable items. When you provide an entertaining, practical, or delicious fundraising product, your contributors will feel motivated to contribute beyond just trying to help out.

The cool thing about fundraising product sales is that you can immediately recruit your group and volunteers to help run a successful fundraiser. Selling fundraising items can also be fun. It can provide your students with significant experience obtained by communicating with contributors and advocating for your school

Not all fundraising products are made equal 

However, you must understand that not every product is ideal for fundraising. Some items stand out, while others are low-quality or simply lame. Here are some high-quality and appealing fundraising products:  

PopCorn  

Everyone loves popcorn, which is why it can find success selling it. But not all popcorn is the same.  

Discount Cards 

Discount cards are wallet-sized cards that include coupons and discounts that your supporters may use at local retailers and restaurants to save money. 

We like this product because it’s a win-win situation for both you and your supporters. You make money while they receive great deals in exchange!

Furthermore, this is another fundraiser that you can sell online, broadening your organization’s reach

Cookie Dough 

Everyone enjoys a warm, gooey cookie fresh from the oven. Sure, you need time to bake those cookies but that is well worth it!

A cookie dough fundraiser can be exciting, especially when you make an event out of it! After the fundraiser is over, you can organize a blind taste test to see the winner for the best-tasting cookie. Selling delicious cookie dough is also fun for everyone, from young students to senior helpers.

 Scratch Cards  

A scratch card is a piece of cardboard with a thin coating with dots to scratch off to disclose the amount of a contribution. It’s like playing a game for a good cause! Each dollar value represents the kind of gift that the fortunate “winner” should make. 

All your participants will do is:
 

  1. Ask supporters to scratch off one or more dots
  2. Supporters donate the amount that revealed
  3. In return, the supporter receives a valuable coupon sheet

    Chocolate 

    There are many options out there, but the most loved chocolate candy in fundraising is

    T-Shirts 

    If you’re trying to raise funds for your school’s basketball team, T-shirts can be a great option.  Students, teachers, and parents alike will be happy to wear a T-shirt with the team’s logo to show their pride in the team and their support. Because shirts are so popular, and everyone wants one! you’re sure to discover folks willing to pay between $15 and $25 for a shirt that you can get at a fraction of the cost. 

    Also, every time one of your supporters wears a t-shirt, they spread the word about your school and the cause you support

    Lollipops 

    Lollipops are affordable, simple to sell, and a popular delicacy among children and adults.
     
    But you don’t want to sell just any lollipop. It’s important to give a pleasant experience to your supporters, even if it’s through something as simple as a lollipop. You don’t want them throwing it away after the first taste. That won’t happen if you raise funds with gourmet lollipops.

    They taste great and they are still affordable. Lollipops are a great fundraiser because you can sell them all throughout the year, regardless of the weather. Also, you can set up a stand at your school’s office or entrance to keep raising money every single week of the year.

    Pizzas 

    There may be pizza businesses in your neighborhood willing to sponsor a pizza fundraiser for your school or organization. Many pizza chains around the country make it simple for schools and NGOs to organize pizza fundraising events.

    But you can also sell pizza using order takers, just like you do with cookie dough; with no risk and no money upfront to pay.
