Tips from Charity Fundraising.
Another Summer has come and gone and it’s back to school for the kiddos! When the school bells ring, it’s time for the Parent Teacher Organizations and extracurricular clubs to start their fundraising campaigns. It’s seems like we’ve all had our dinner interrupted by the door bell, only to find a youngster selling candy bars or wrapping paper for the football team or for new playground equipment for their school. Though we all enjoy a candy bar now and then, it takes a lot of candy bar sales to purchase new football uniforms or send the marching band on a trip to a college bowl game.
This year, think outside the box (of candy bars that is). Charity Fundraising can provide you with school fundraising ideas for your Parent Teacher Organization or school club. Michael Gordon, Fundraising Specialist at Charity Fundraising encourages schools and clubs to host a silent or live auction as a part of their annual fundraising strategy. “We have seen great success with silent and live auctions for our school partners. Parents love bidding on autographed items from Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, The Avengers, Glee and Harry Potter. They are helping their school and providing their child with a unique piece of memorabilia to treasure well beyond their school years.”
Schools and extracurricular groups have also seen great success and elevated bids on VIP Packages, like a trip to the Teen Choice Awards or a family dream vacation to Disney World. These packages make great graduation gifts or summer vacations for families while raising dollars for your cause.
Thinking your school can’t afford to showcase such amazing charity items? It’s easy with the help of Charity Fundraising. Recent school fundraising partner Elizabeth Mejia from Communities In Schools of Miami comments, Charity Fundraising is “a pleasure to work with, the school board was very happy and we will be using your service again.” Charity Fundraising has helped over 3,000 non-profit organizations, including over 500 schools increase their fundraising revenue by tremendous margins with our no risk auction items.
In fact in 2011 alone our no risk auction items raised over $3 million for charities and non-profits in the US and Canada. To give you more detail about how we support our charity partners, Charity Fundraising offers all our incredible autographed memorabilia, VIP experience and vacation packages on a no risk consignment basis, so your organization will receive 100% of the profits. We’re proud to work on the honor system and request no cash, credit cards or deposits up front. We work exclusively with the non-profit community, so we have perfected the fine art of helping deliver blockbuster charity auctions to all our partners.
