Good Planning Goes into Good Fundraisers

When your organization is going to have a fundraiser, careful planning is needed to make it as successful as possible. Ideally, more than one person is involved in the planning and execution but it often falls on one person to do most of the work in pulling it all together. This makes it all the more important to choose a company that makes the job easier.


Besides offering products that are easy to sell, you want a company that makes scheduling your fundraiser easy, has no minimum order requirements and preferably offers free shipping. It also makes it easier to plan your fundraising goal if there is a flat percentage on every sale your organization makes no matter how much or how little is sold. This makes keeping track of how much you raised simpler.


Fundraising should be as simple as setting the start and end dates, providing order forms to your group, collecting orders and money at the end of the fundraiser, sending in the orders along with payment, receiving the shipped products and, after checking to be sure all products are there, delivering to buyers. It may seem like a lot to do but it is the basic progression of a fundraiser. Some companies make it more complicated by adding extra steps.


Another quality to look for in a good fundraising company is offering more than one option to send payment for the products ordered. Since products are usually not shipped until the payment clears, mailing a physical check can result in a delay in shipping. While this might be the preferred way to pay for some, others prefer to pay online or over the phone electronically as it means products will be shipped a bit sooner.


Last but certainly not least, you want a company that offers products that are easy to sell. The products that sell the easiest are products that people need and use regularly. People don’t need more candy bars or gift wrap. They do need laundry and dish detergent, trash bags and storage bags though. Clean burning scented candles sell well too.

Sudz Fundraising

Sudz Fundraising was created by Jeremy Kean, a baseball coach, who was fed up with fundraising in general (it was a drag to even have to deal with it every year) and specifically, the kinds of fundraisers that were available. So he did something about it, and SUDZ was born as a fast, easy fundraiser that helps communities, teams, and organizations raise money in a healthy, helpful way.
