Whenever you kick-start a fundraiser, it starts out with a bang and lots of excitement and energy but can end with little but relief at the end. Make wrapping up your fundraiser just as exciting as the launch.
Encourage the involvement and hard work with rewards. Create a goal chart at the start of your fundraiser and every few days have a seller color in what your group is up to in sales. It will help keep the momentum going and keep your group encouraged by showing their progress and achievement. You can also give small awards to all of the sellers and/or an award to top sellers or other types of prize winners. Remember you earn prize points on every case you purchase from Old Fashion Candy. You can see our complete prize selection here.
Just like holding a launch party to get your group jazzed up, why not throw a wrap party to end things on a high note! Have a pizza or ice cream party for your group to reward all of their hard work. If you are having a school-wide fundraiser, hold a wrap-up assembly for everyone. During this time, announce any of your top sellers and prize winners. Be sure to announce what you'll do with the money raised. Taking photos during these events can be good to put in letters or emails for volunteers or parents.
Gratitude - thank parents and volunteers
Don't forget about parents, teachers or other volunteers who helped you on your fundraising journey. Especially if you are working with younger children or are having product that needs delivering, parents or other adults will likely be doing most of the work. Volunteers feel extra commitment and excitement when their contributions are appreciated and recognized. Thank them during your end of fundraiser celebration by having sellers give them a round of applause. You could also mention them in signs or letters/emails you send out following the close of the fundraiser.
Keep your fundraiser light-hearted throughout. Know that everyone is working towards the same goal and that you'll likely need these volunteer's help again during another fundraiser. Ask those involved their opinion on how things went to see what went well and what could use improving for next time. Get any tips from them that may be helpful to share with other volunteers.
If you keep your fundraiser light-hearted, fun, and organized from start to finish then you will be sure to maintain excitement and drive for all those involved.
