Fundraising Directory

Throughout the year I have been compiling cute little puns and statements that appear on teacher appreciation gifts. These are easy to make into cards or gifts for the special teacher (or coach or mentor or teacher’s assistant) who has been a big part of your child’s year at school. And by changing the word ‘teacher’ to ‘mum’ or ‘dad’, many of these cute lines are also perfect for Mother’s and Father’s day cards and gifts. Thank you for pushing me to do my best (push pins/fancy thumb tacks) I am so lucky to have a teacher like you (lotto tickets, scratch’n’win) Thank you for making my year so ..read more

Fundraising Directory

Experience shows that the perfect mix of fundraising is a balance of large events held infrequently, smaller events or product sales held regularly, and background fundraising running continuously. This is true regardless of whether you are a school, a sporting club or charity. Passive fundraising works because it ticks along in the background, meaning that your community are constantly making small, ad hoc purchases. Therefore, the best type of passive fundraisers are those with products or services that are required at least annually and by a large proportion of your members ..read more

Badges are a fantastic addition to any school fete or other fundraiser. Kids love designing and making their own badges, and they are a relatively quick buck to make. Once you have made the initial investment in a machine, with proper care they will last practically forever, and you can pull it out every year for your fete. Badge components are cheapest in bulk, and there is no issue with shelf life – they will last for years carefully stored. Many badge machines now also support other products from keyrings and bottle openers to hair clips and buttons. Since most badge machines work with fabr ..read more

While many fundraising ideas directly benefit our children, and their involvement is welcomed, sometimes we want to find fundraisers which can be primarily organised and led by children. A child-led fundraiser is one where the majority of the planning and organising can be done by children. Obviously adults will always need to supervise, but sometimes we also want a break and allowing kids to take the lead can result in higher uptake and commitment from the very people, who the fundraiser will eventually benefit. The children can be involved in designing and drawing posters, speakin ..read more

If you are offering a raffle as part of your next fundraising event, but the raffle is not a major component then consider this tip for quickly selling large quantities of raffle tickets to avoid people ‘forgetting’ to buy them.

A white elephant stall – or second-hand goods –stall is a popular fundraiser for all types of groups. However just because the goods you are selling are second-hand, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ensure that they are presented with the same care and attention as if you were selling brand new items. You will have a lot more success if you have the majority of your items on tables and racks and not sitting on the ground. Certain items such as shoes and tools can reasonably go on a sheet or rug on the ground, but people tend to associate second-hand goods on the ground with junk ..read more

How many times have you heard someone say ‘I’m just going to get some cash and I will be right back’ and then they never return? At school fetes and other community events this basically boils down to lost money. When someone leaves an event to get cash, they rarely come back.
