Fundraising Tips from a Mom Who's Done Them All
Seriously, moms. You know how it goes. Little Sally joins the soccer team and suddenly you’re saddled with uniform fees, picture fees, travel costs, volunteer duty at the concession stand—and on top of all that, the coach has the audacity to send home a fundraiser sheet for which the soccer players (i.e., YOU) are expected to tour the neighborhood selling tubs of frozen cookie dough.
Can we stop the madness, please???
In my years of parenting children who attend school, dance class, music lessons, volleyball club, karate, youth group—in other words, kids who breathe air and occasionally leave their bedrooms to participate in life—I’ve experienced my wild share of fundraisers. I’ll bet you have, too. Popcorn sales, cookie sales, candy bar sales, wreath sales, wrapping paper sales, car washes, silent auctions, jump rope pledges, change wars… all great campaigns for great causes, of course! But they all have one flaw in common.
They’re a lot of work—for the parents. And the kids. And the coordinators.
And quite honestly, nobody in my house needs another box of chocolates.
What if we could find a fundraiser that provides a product people actually need AND want, and that doesn’t require a ton of effort for anybody on the front end? No handling of inventory, no sorting and distributing boxes of goods, no chasing down family, neighbors and co-workers to deliver what they paid for.
Is such a fundraiser possible? Does it even exist?
Good news. It does.
