Is your child excited about the upcoming fundraiser? Wouldn’t you love to see them succeed? As a parent, you want to support your child any way that you can. If they have a big fundraiser coming up, lend them a hand. That is what parents are for. Your child probably does not know much about fundraising and probably does not know where to begin. Here are some helpful tips that you can use to help your child raise tons of money at the next fundraiser.
Have Some Goals
It is always important to have goals in life. This is an important lesson to teach to your children. Before your child starts attempting to raise money, sit down with them and decide on a number to shoot for. Whether that is to raise 100 dollars or sell 50 chocolate bars, make your child set a goal.
Is Email An Effective Method?
To put it simply, email is not the best method for fundraising. All too often, the recipients either think it’s spam and delete it or just flat out ignore your message. You are much better off approaching individuals on foot.
Make Cheat Sheet For Your Child
It can be scary for a child to approach a stranger and ask if they want to donate or buy something. For that reason, it is easier if the child has a cheat sheet to refer to when pitching the cause they are trying to raise money for.
Let Children Work Together
Divide and conquer! Determine where everyone else is going to be fundraising. Once you have that information, you can map out the untouched parts of the neighborhood.
