Cheerleader fundraising must be well planned to make it successful. You will have to put a lot of time and effort into decisions you will have to make to ensure that this cheerleader fundraising event will go smoothly. The first thing you will have to do is set your fundraising goals in place. You have to decide when the best time is for the fundraising and select strategies that are suited for this type of funding.
Try to keep your volunteers motivate companies that give in-kind donations during the fund raising campaign. Try to build excitement into your cheerleader fundraiser so you’ll come out with the best results possible. Be sure that everyone that’s participating in this cheerleading fundraiser knows exactly what is expected of him/her. This is crucial to the success of the cheerleader fundraising event. Make sure the cheerleaders or the PTA are informed as to why you need cheerleader fundraising. This will give them a feeling of really belonging to the campaign and will bring out the best of those that are helping.
To get your cheerleader fundraising on the go you have to choose a suitable product to sell. You might try a raffle sale where you have a cash prize for the winner of the tickets. You can offer 50% of what is collected for the winning prize. This will probably help with tickets sales at the cheerleader fundraiser as they know the more tickets sold the bigger the prize will be. Your cheerleader fundraising could be selling candy or candy bars or have a bake sale. This is a tried and true method to raise money for a fund raiser and can prove to be economical. If you ask all the cheerleader’s parents to make and bake the goodies, make sure each one knows what is expected of them to avoid confusion and needless to say all the same kind of cookies.
Make sure all your participants know that they should let the donor know how much their contribution is appreciated for the cheerleading fundraiser. This is crucial as this may not be your only cheerleader fundraising and you may be asking these same people for donations in your future cheerleading fundraising campaigns. It is very important that they know they are appreciated.
