When a church needs something like a new church hall or refurbishment of an existing building, the funds required can be astronomical. Many church fundraising groups are accustomed to large efforts that bring in lots of money, but what if you’re just looking for a more moderate amount to fund a church trip, set up an activity you want to try, or buy some incidental things that the church needs? Small church fundraisers are certainly out there, and there’s no reason for you to launch such a huge effort if a small church fundraiser would be more appropriate.
If you don’t know where to start setting up small church fundraisers, the formula is pretty easy – simply figure out how much money your church needs in total, divide that by the number of people on your fundraising team, and you’ll get an average of what each person needs to bring in for you to meet your goals. Small church fundraisers are often easier to build motivation for than larger ones, simply because the goals may seem more attainable. When you’re running a small church fundraiser, it’s pretty simple to keep everyone on task for the duration of the fundraising effort.
Small church fundraisers come in many different varieties. If you like the idea of chocolate (and who doesn’t?), you could try fundraising with our dollar chocolate bar fundraiser, which is one of our top small church fundraisers. If you can set up someplace to do your fundraising after services, that would be ideal. Another of the best small church fundraisers is our Christian scratch cards fundraiser, which is incredibly easy because there’s no real product to distribute. You just get your supporters to scratch off 2 of 50 covered dots on the card, and the amount they uncover is the amount they donate. This has one of the highest profit margins of all small church fundraisers, with returns of up to 90% on your investment.
