Sometimes when you are fundraising, it can be an uphill battle. You feel like no matter what you do, you’re just not getting to your goal fast enough, and you’d like to see some better profit and sales numbers.
It may be time to bring in a supplementary fundraiser, just to boost those profits a little and give your fundraising some momentum again. We have lots of ideas for secondary fundraisers you can run, but one of the most obvious options is to look at our lollipop fundraisers and see if something in that category can help get your fundraising effort back on track again.
It sounds like a kids thing, but everyone loves lollipops, and with choices of lollipop fundraisers ranging from gourmet hard candy to chocolate, you’re sure to find some great lollipops that your supporters will love, no matter who they are. Lollipops are great for sports teams and individual athletes, or people who are participating in an athletic event as part of a charity fundraiser.
The lollipops are so easy to carry around and distribute amongst the crowd, the prices are low enough that anyone can afford them, and in most cases, you can make a 50% profit.
Lollipop fundraisers can also be used as a way to get your supporters warmed up for the main fundraiser. If you are already running a fundraising campaign and are having trouble getting people interested, having a teaser like lollipops can really get their attention and make them more likely to listen to the other things you want to tell them about. So not only are you boosting profits through the lollipop fundraisers directly, but you’re also helping to boost interest in your other fundraiser, as well!
It’s a win-win situation, and with a popular product like delicious lollipops, you can hardly go wrong.
