Selling new fundraiser ideas for school can be an interesting task.

You have to get quite a few people on board with the idea that trying something other than what have been the traditional fundraiser events will be successful. Often you run into a great deal of resistance even when your idea sounds perfect.

The main idea of changing the way your school handles fundraisers is to create less work while raising more funds. With the hope that those involved will see this, you may find yourself doing tons of research, charting, and gathering together a great presentation. Unfortunately, you may not be heard unless you start with the bottom line. What is the bottom line? How much are your current fundraisers making combined and how does that compare to what you could make with a whole new system of raising money?

In many cases, new fundraiser ideas for school are blended into the system. A radically different idea may have some trouble being blended, especially when there are new ideas on how to create more interest in the event. Focusing on the idea that simplification and less work for higher returns leads to better participation all the way around. It’s not easy to get school events off the ground. Making changes often means being able to convince a group of people that radical changes are necessary.

Of course, they are. What do you have when you have limited participation? Low returns. Many of the most common fundraisers involve the sale of something. Anything from candy to calendars can be used as a fundraiser that doesn’t return a great profit. You can change the product over and over again but the end result will still be the same. That’s because this method of raising money is overused and doesn’t usually draw a big crowd. Many schools profit less than $1000 from efforts like these.

In order to draw a big crowd and develop some interest you have to do something interesting. Switching over to a golf fundraising event can certainly be interesting to a large variety of people. On top of that, if the events are coordinated to draw in new participants you generate a greater revenue. Throughout the history of raising money for events for school you will find that the students and parents become “sales people.” Why not have them use their contacts in a different manner? What if they could call their connections and interest then in getting fully involved in a golf fundraising effort? Since it’s not even required that anyone who joins knows how to play, the event is open for everyone.

New fundraiser ideas for school need to be powerful in order to get the approval of the board. When you approach the topic in powerful ways and are able to show the board the difference in the bottom line, there is a great improvement in the receptiveness of the parties involved. Golf fundraising events can help improve interest of even the board members.
