Get Organized

Sometimes it feels like no matter what you do there is always something that knocks you off track from reaching your fundraising goal.  Sometimes you get knocked off track before you even choose which fundraiser you’re going to do!  Aside from staying “organized” here are a few quick things to keep in mind when doing not just our fundraiser, but any fundraiser.

  1. Start organized and stay organized.  We work to make our fundraiser simple and effective.  Something that helps you keep organized will always help.
  2. Set a start and end date for no more than 45-60 days.  Realistically it is best on our project to not go over 30 days, but the point is you do not want to extend it too long as this will hurt your efforts.
  3. Keep track of donations using our provided fundraising forms.  Be sure to put them in to an Excel file as you go along if possible. This will make it so much easier when it’s time to turn in your project.
  4. Talk to people. It’s okay to use all of the other tools we provide to help spread the word but the best tool is when you speak with folks one on one.
