The weather is warming up and spring is hopping over the horizon. As parents and children get excited for spring break and a visit from the Easter bunny, it’s the perfect time of year to hold a fundraiser. Here are some of the best reasons why springtime is the right time for food fundraising with Claire’s Gourmet.
Avoid Competing Fundraisers
Many schools, clubs, and organizations do food fundraising in the fall. The springtime is typically not a popular period for raising money, so hosting your fundraiser in the spring will get you more orders with less competition.
Get a Leap Ahead on Your Budget
Many groups wait to start fundraising until a deficit is already too large, so if you sense budget problems on the horizon or even in the fall, a springtime fundraiser is a perfect way to get an extra boost. Food fundraising can give your budget more cushion and allow for more financial security at your school or organization.
Take Some Pressure Off
Fall fundraising can feel like a life-or-death situation if you get almost all of your yearly money during that short period. Springtime fundraising can take some pressure off of your fall fundraiser and explore new times of year to get your revenue. Breaking a goal into two pieces instead of only one piece will ensure that your food fundraising efforts provide what you need.
The fall is an incredibly stressful time of year for parents, children, teachers, and just about everything. Springtime feels lighter and many people have freer schedules to help out with food fundraising efforts. Volunteers will be more enthusiastic to help in the spring (and buyers will definitely be more excited to buy!).
