Fundraising with Product Sales

5

When deciding upon a product sale fundraiser (such as selling frozen-pizza-making-kits or selling scented candles), focus on the following four characteristics:

  • Product Type
    • Make sure you select a good product for your community or area. If you’re selling to a family community with small children, maybe open-flame candles aren’t the best product. Maybe a pizza-making-kit would be a better choice, as it could be a family activity and relive the stress parents may feel over planning dinner.
  • Brand recognition
    • It’s easier to get someone to support a cause when they know the brand name. Using a brand name product may  also assure your organization that you are following an established fundraising plan set up by the company.
  • Quality
    • It’s much easier to sell a quality product than a poor quality product. Remember your goal is to make a profit, but the supporter’s goal is to get something they actually want and will use.
  • Customer Service
    • Make sure whatever product you decide upon is sold by a company that has excellent customer service, with a step-by-step guide to their fundraising process
