Tips for Fundraising Success

Here are a few helpful hints to make your Donation Drive a success.

  Work all of your networks! Talk to family, friends, church, school, work, clubs and anyone else you can think of about your Fundraiser. Use our templates to print out flyers and send out emails.

  Host a community drop off day on a Saturday. Let people bring donations to you.

  Harness your competitive spirit! Have your team members set personal goals and see who can collect the most bags.

  Have A Plan!!! Make sure you have a plan for all aspects of your drive. Have volunteers ready for any weekend projects, and make sure you have established location to store donations until the end of your clothing drive.

  Offer to pick up donations from friends, family and neighbors.
