How to Get the Most Out of Your Table Setup

Ofcblog_0919113

    If you're having a location based fundraiser where you are setup at a table or booth then have we got some tips for you. An organized and well-presented space ensures that passerby's can clearly see your cause and products. Here's some help on how you can get the most out of your location.


1. Have a large, clearly written sign that says what you are selling and for how much. Include your group name as well.
2. Ensure you have an organized table top with items in boxes/containers or stacked neatly.
3. Have a small space towards the front of the table clear for patrons to gather their order or to place their purse/wallet down when exchanging payment.
4. Placing a donation jar or box at the end of the table can only help bring in more money. This way if customers don't purchase from you they are still able to contribute.

Prom Fundraising

Roses

It's PROM TIME! That means it's time to break out the decorations, formal attire and some fundraising. Maybe you're head of the prom committee or need to do some spring time fundraising for a class trip or something, using prom as a basis for your fundraiser can really pay off. Here's a handy idea that can help boost your spring school fundraising:

ASK ME TO PROM ROSES
- Download our printable sheet here of "will you go to prom with me" cards.
- Print out and cut apart cards (6 cards per 8.5x11 sheet so you have no waste!). You can use any color paper but if you have card stock or a thicker paper your cards will hold up better.
- Hole punch each card in the middle at the top and using ribbon, tie one card onto each rose.  If you choose to, you can punch two holes close to each other so your card will sit more centered on the candy stick.
- The giver can write their potential prom date's name at the top and sign their name at the bottom on the dotted lines.
Now, you/your group can either pre-tie on all cards and ribbons to the rose or if you have a table setup, leave them loose and only tie them on as they are purchased (this may also make it easier for people to write their names on the cards). If you have a table set up, having pens on hand will also be helpful for purchasers to write their names on the tags.
If you use curling ribbon you can curl the ends of the ribbons after they are tied to add some fun or simply tie it in a classic bow. Use your school colors, prom colors or just a bright and fun variety! Either way, your fundraiser is sure to be the hit of the school and not only bring in money for your cause but also spread some prom cheer!

No matter what you are fundraising for or how many people are in your group (or if you are an individual), even in fundraising, advertising is everything. You need to reach out to potential buyers and supporters so you can makes sales or collect donations to help fund your group/activities. Advertising in a visual way can help make an impact on your sales in a very profitable way and it doesn't have to cost you a lot of time or money. The simplest way is to make signs. Maybe your group has a table at a local event or outside a local business, you'll be leaving a box in the lunch room at work or just selling directly out of the box. A compelling and informative sign can help draw buyers into your cause and purchasing from you. The signs don't have to big either, they can be a standard 8.5x11 piece of computer paper and, with a few minutes, can become a great sales tool. 

Sign Tips:
 
- Put the group or purpose you are fundraising for at the very top like "Fundraising for Prom" or "Senior High Fundraiser." You want people to know immediately they are supporting a good fundraising cause 

- Make it easy to read. Clean handwriting or typing it out on a computer so your message is clear

- If your items are all the same price, list the price 

- A picture is worth a thousand words so use one or two images of your group or a stock photo to help reinforce your message.

- Have access to a copier? Make your sign all black type and print it out on neon or lighter colored paper to give it a punch without the cost of color copies. 

- Keep your sign simple. Don't feel like you have to clutter it with tons of information, you want it to be a quick and easy read

If you print your signs on a standard paper size you can tape them to the inside lid of the box so it's easy to read when propped open on a table. If you are doing a table setup or larger event you can make large signs on banner paper or poster board. If your group contains kids, this is a great way to get them all involved by having them decorate and make the signs. 

To help get you started we have some pre-designed sign templates you can fill your groups name in on here: $1 signs or $2 signs.
