Creating a roadmap that works for your group
Step one: Setting and reaching your goal.
When asking groups how much they need to raise, the answer is always the same: “As much as we can!” That’s not a goal, that’s a dream.
- Let’s get real here: Set an attainable goal so you can set an expectation with an engaging message.
- Far too many groups come to us with stories of previously failed fundraisers-let’s fix that together.
What’s the fundraising goal for this campaign?
How many people will help promote the fundraiser?
Step two: Setting an effective timeline
You’ll need about 4 weeks from the time you start until you head to the bank with your profits. (21 days to sell and order are ready about 7-10 days later).Sign up early to get your preferred delivery and seller pickup dates!
Get dates that work for your group!
Tip: Follow your local school calendar and don’t fundraise over long breaks like spring break or Christmas. It’s not effective.
Step three: Choosing the vendors that your group will sell from
We offer a variety of local products and vendor options in your area. All depending on your goal and number of people in your group, you can choose up to about three vendors.
Here’s a guideline: Once you’ve established an attainable fundraising goal, find your number of vendors:
- Goal of raising about $1500: 1-2 vendors
- Goal of raising between $1500 and $3000: 2-3 vendors
- Goal of raising between $3000 and $15000: 3+ vendors. Contact us: we can help you build your campaign
Why can't we choose more options? Our group wants more vendors than what's recommended!
Vendors sell products at wholesale costs. Minimums are set in place so that they can create large orders if your group can’t sell a minimum of $1500, we’d recommend reconsidering fundraising. At $1500 in total sales, you are only earning about $300-$400. That’s not exactly “fundraising” and probably not worth your time!
Raise more. Play more: Fill Your Freezer Fundraisers are lucrative!
Fill Your Freezer fundraisers mean you can fundraise with multiple vendors all at once & we handle all logistics and payments.
So you can get back to other important things, like watching your kids game!
This is all great, but how does it actually work?
Great question! Unlike other fundraisers, you are supported with TeamFund from start to finish.
We help you set a goal, choose a timeline and vendors that will fit your group: We will create your custom webpage enabled with social media sharing and still offer paper order forms for those who want to go old school. Stay connected to your goal with real-time sales and seller engagement!
