Small groups, big goals.
The size of your group has a huge impact on deciding on your ideal fundraising program. Even if you are part of a small group, that doesn’t mean you don’t have big goals. Small groups can be just as large groups when using right product. The ideal campaign for small groups are the ones that take advantage of every participant’s efforts.
It helps for groups to have a targeted goal for each seller. It also helps to motivate your groups with incentives. Smaller groups can also offer up a certain award or prize for the individual who sells the most items throughout the selling period. By doing this, you will be adding a little bit of competition that can later help raise more money than you would have anticipated.
Some of the programs that work well for smaller groups are the: candle fundraiser, flower bulb fundraiser, and the gourmet beverage fundraiser. These fundraisers would be good choices for smaller groups, and also happen to be three of our top selling fundraisers.
We also suggest that coming up with an overall goal for the fundraiser and making a clear fundraising purpose in order to obtain the attention and support from group members. If you feel that your group shares the same fundraising purpose with another group or organization in your area, you could also team up with them to gain more participants.
