Smart Ways to Choose Orchestra Fundraising Ideas

Coming up with good orchestra fundraising ideas is no mean feat.

Sure, you could just pick whichever fundraiser looks good on the surface and go with that, but chances are you want your fundraiser to go well, which means you need to put a little more thought into it than that. There is a system to choosing a good orchestra fundraising idea, and if you follow the formula, you’re much more likely to have a good fundraising experience than if you just choose any old idea and try to make it work.

The worst thing you can do is just pick a fundraiser you’re drawn to and not check it out further. People often think that fundraising is just about selling things and that it doesn’t matter which thing you pick to sell. While it’s true that selling is at the heart of most orchestra fundraising ideas, there’s a little more to it than just choosing a product you like the look of.

Each of our fundraisers is set up to benefit certain types of groups or groups with certain needs. For example, some fundraisers are set up to make good profits for large groups with a lot of selling power but would be disastrous for small groups due to the high minimum order requirements.

It’s important to take the time to look into the details of all the orchestra fundraiser ideas you’re considering. You’ll also want to take into account your supporters. You may think that things like tea or green products would be silly for your young orchestra members to sell, but if they’re going out into the community and selling to adults, either of these orchestra fundraising ideas could work really well.

Groups selling to fellow students may do better with something like chocolate or cookie dough. It’s important to keep your supporters in mind when choosing an orchestra fundraising ideas.
