Learn what you can do to guarantee a successful school fundraiser!

School fundraisers are incredibly helpful for school groups that need to raise funds for uniforms, equipment, trips, and a variety of other necessary costs. School fundraisers are a great way to involve your community in supporting your school’s programs and are widely enjoyed because supporters of the fundraiser can receive excellent products while supporting the school. For instance, when you hold a school fundraiser with Florida Indian River Groves, your supporters have numerous packages of fresh fruit to choose from and enjoy. But what can you do to make sure your school fundraiser is a success? Florida Indian River Groves has helped many school groups hold successful fundraisers and has a few tips to share. 

Think Ahead and Start Your Fundraiser Early 

The earlier you start, the more money you can raise. You can start planning a fall fundraiser in the summer or think about that spring program after the new year. This way, when it’s time to start selling, your team is prepared. When you work with Florida Indian River Groves, you have three fundraising programs to choose from, enabling you to fundraise at any time between August and May.

Pace Yourself

Don’t try to do everything all at once. Make a clear and realistic timeline for your school fundraiser and a reasonable task list for your volunteers. The free fundraising coordinator’s guide found on the Florida Indian River Groves website can help you plan out your school fundraiser and plan future actions. 

Keep Everyone Informed

Clear communication ensures that everyone is on the same page and no one is surprised or confused. Give parents advance notice about the fundraiser and remind students before their orders are due. When you create a free fundraising website with Florida Indian River Groves, you create another platform on which to communicate with your team members and supporters. 

Expand Your Reach 

School fundraisers can now capitalize on the reach the Internet provides. While traditionally, you would be limited to face-to-face sales with your local community members, you can now combine those sales with sales over the Internet. If you have family or friends spread throughout the country, you can use our free fundraising website and mobile app to effortlessly sell our fresh fruit products.
