Preschool Fundraising: How To Do The Steps And What To Pick

The very first step in doing a preschool fundraising program is determining what it is you really need to generate funds for. You need to determine whether the money is going to be used to fund a school project like building a playground for the students or is it going to be used to pay for expenses. If you are going to do your fundraising campaign for the latter type of purpose, then it would be best for you to include fundraisers in your preschool's regular routine.

On the other hand, if you plan on building up money for a tangible need such as playground equipments or school supplies, you need to set a specific goal based on what you want to purchase with the money that you're going to generate at the end of your fundraiser. Base your goal on the financial value of the items that you're going to buy. If it's going to be playground equipments, then you first need to list down the prices of each one of these things so that you can have an idea of the amount that you're going to need to target. If the total amount of all the playground equipments that you’re going to need would be $5,000, then set the goal of your fundraiser based on that value.

After you determine the amount of money that you and your team of volunteers need to work hard for, you can then move on to the next step of the process, which is finding a fundraiser idea that would be suitable to your financial needs. Since you already know the amount you need to generate, you can now go over the different products, services, or events that you can possibly try out to generate the kind of money that you need. The higher the value of the funds that you need, the higher the profit margins of the fundraiser idea that you choose should be. Products sales that involve selling cookie dough tubs is a good choice if you plan on raising quite a huge sum for your school because the profit margins of these types of products range from 40 to 50 percent each. Doing products sales is really advantageous because people love looking at product brochures with nice pictures. These sales materials are really effective at drawing interest from people so as to lure them in for the purchase. In addition, products sales usually involve selling food products such as cookie dough and candy bars, which people crave for on a regular basis. The important thing you need to remember when you're doing a products sales fundraiser would be contacting a good supplier that offers affordable items so that you can have the chance to add some value to the products so that you can increase your revenue.

On the other hand, if you want to raise money fast, you can go for hosting an event such as a fair where you can feature inflatable rentals such as obstacle courses, slides, bowling, and boxing. Events require a bit more effort and organization speed but they are really quick at generating income because your customers will be the one going to you, instead of you approaching them.
