Learn how you can plan a successful fruit sale fundraiser with Florida Indian River Groves.

If you are planning a fruit sale fundraiser for your organization, team, or school group, figuring out how to meet your financial goals can be difficult. Ultimately, the secret behind every successful fundraiser is a well-planned campaign. When you work with Florida Indian River Groves to hold your fruit sale fundraiser, you already have a knowledgeable and experienced fundraising partner. As you use our resources for both in-person and online fundraising, you can consider the following to make sure you successfully reach your supporters.

Know The “Why” Behind Your Fundraiser

Why should a potential supporter give to your organization instead of another? You should always be able to answer this question because potential donors may ask. To hold a successful fruit sale fundraiser, first, make sure that you understand what you are raising money for so you can explain to people how they can help you. For instance, if you are a sports team raising money for new uniforms or a church group raising money for missionary travel, you can explain to potential supporters why you have this goal and how these funds will help your group significantly. 

Reach Your Supporters

People want to give because they like to make a difference in their local community. Take the proper steps to encourage people to contribute, ensuring a successful fundraising campaign.

The first step in finding supporters is to reach out to people who will feel passionate about your cause. For school groups, this often includes the family members of students who want the best for their children. However, sports teams may reach out to their fans and family, and church groups can reach out to their congregation or their wider religious community. 

Explain the Benefits of Supporting Your Cause

When you hold a fruit sale fundraiser, it’s easy to convince people to participate. In exchange for supporting your group’s cause, your supporter will receive one of our healthy fruit packagesAlmost everyone enjoys fresh fruit, and your potential supporters will appreciate being able to order directly from the farm.
