You’ve done all of the necessary planning for your fundraiser. It’s time for the best part–launching and selling! It’s always a good thing to start going door to door within the community to start raising money right away but there are some great tools to maximize your group’s efforts.
1. Educate your sellers!
As you launch your fundraiser, make sure you are communicating effectively with your sellers why you are fundraising and how the fundraiser works. It helps if you explain the WHY behind the fundraiser in a fun and persuasive manner!

2. Keep your sellers informed and motivated.
When fundraising, everything really does boil down to consistent communication. Keep in touch with your sellers, check in every so often with reminders and see how their sales are going.
