Popular Church Fundraisers
Each year, in the United States, an unlimited number of church fundraisers are taking place. Church fundraisers, over the past few years, have rapidly increased in popularity. For many church congregations, church fundraisers are nice and relatively easy ways to help raise money for their congregation or another worth cause. Although planning and preparing for a church fundraiser can seem like a relatively easy task, there are some individuals who have an easier time than others do. For many, the process of deciding which type of fundraiser they should try to hold is just as hard, if not harder, then actually getting started. If you are having a difficult time determining which type of fundraiser you and your church should use, you will want to continue reading on, as many popular church fundraisers are outlined below.
Catalog order books are a popular and common fundraiser used by many churches. What is nice is that many church related catalog companies are non-profit organizations as well; therefore, you may be able to receive all of your profits when taking this approach. Should you use church related catalog order books as a fundraiser, it may be a good idea to proceed with caution. What you do not want to do is end up competing with local school groups when schools are in session and actively fundraising. Cookie dough sales are another one of the many fundraising ideas that churches have used to help them raises funds needed to improve their church, by way of repairs, or by raising money to help a worthy cause, since as AIDS or cancer research.
Should you be interested in selling cookie dough as a fundraiser, it may be a good idea to have your youngest church members be involved in the fundraising sales as well. Cookie dough fundraisers work best during the holiday months. Another one of the many ways that you can go about raising money through church fundraisers is by way of hosting a community dinner. What is nice about these dinners is that they can come in a number of different formats. For instance, it is possible for you have a community dinner where are individuals, including children, are invited and allowed in with a small donation. On the other hand, you can have a “date night,” for your community. This may not only involve providing your community members with food for a small donation, but free childcare for the evening as well. This is a great way to see success, as many parents long for the ability to enjoy a night and not have to worry about the safety of their children. Speaking of children, some of the best fundraisers, especially those that are associated with children, have a focus on children. What you need to remember about children is that you not only need to impress them, but their parents as well.
Many children, especially younger children, and their parents love plays or fun filled days with music, games, foods, and so forth. These types of fun filled days may be able to take place at a local park or right at your own facility. As previously stated, it is advised that you try and target children and their parents with music and plays. As important as it is to target the next generation, you should still place a good percentage of your focus on adults as well. As a reminder, offering fundraisers that involves adult only dinners, plays, or concerts, are all great ways to raise money and attract community members who are looking for a “night out on the town.” Additional fundraisers that you may want to look into having your church group do involve craft fairs, book fairs, yard sales, or family photograph portraits. As a reminder, the decision as to which church fundraiser you would like to try is your decision to make and the decision of the rest of your congregation. With that in mind, the above mentioned fundraising approaches have all proven successful for many churches, just like yours. PPPPP Word Count 673 .
