Everyone who gets put in charge of organizing a cancer awareness fundraiser goes through a phase where they want to be original, innovative, and doing something that no one else has thought of before. That’s fine, there’s nothing wrong with breaking new ground, but remember that your chief goal is to raise money for the cause, and often the best way to do that is to take a formula that has worked well in the past and to stick with it. Building a tradition with your cancer fundraiser can be the key to success a lot of times.
There is nothing wrong with doing the same cancer awareness fundraiser year in and year out. Take a look at the Girl Scouts, for example – they do the same fundraiser every year, and as you know it works really well for them. People do look forward to something they can rely on, and if you do the same cancer awareness fundraiser every year, you build a tradition that people can really enjoy.
Chocolate fundraisers are the typical fundraiser tradition, and a lot of cancer awareness fundraisers are based on some variation of this. We have chocolate fundraisers to suit whatever your tastes are. You probably remember the $1 chocolate bar fundraisers from other things you have done fundraising for in the past, like school, for instance. Not only is the $1 fundraisers still around, but the chocolate bars are also still the same price. This is a very popular cancer awareness fundraiser, and it’s something you could do year after year without any problems. If you want to make the chocolate fundraiser a bit more modern, you could put a twist on it by choosing something like Hershey’s bars instead of the $1 bars. We have a range of all kinds of cancer awareness fundraisers to choose from – have a look through our cancer awareness fundraiser pages to get an idea of all the different kinds of fundraisers available for your fundraising team.
