Fundraise Without Funds

In these tough economic times, everyone's feeling the money pinch. However, that doesn't mean that people's philanthropic spirits are any less diminished; it just means that they may not necessarily be able to contribute with the same amount of funds as they used to.

What's an organization in need to do when donation pockets don't run as deep? As both presidential campaigns discovered, time can be as valuable as money. In addition, a lot of small donations can help overcome the lack of an extremely large donation. Here are a few ways to maximize resources and opportunities during tough economic times:

Recruit more volunteers: When people say that time is money, they're absolutely right. Can you cut overhead costs by having volunteers handle tasks? From office logistics to phone tasks, volunteer positions can come in handy in all sorts of areas. Best of all, you'll educate people on the importance of your organization, meaning that they'll be more inclined to donate when the economy recovers.

Low-expense fundraisers: When the only expense you have is time and energy, you can still have a successful fundraiser. Think of the things people need during the holidays -- gift-wrapping, holiday light setup, decorative cleanup, etc. These are the types of things that can be done with a team of volunteers and you'll always find people willing to "pay" (donate) your group to take care of it.

Grass-roots fundraising: Sure, it's always great to get the big corporate donation but everyone's pinching pennies right now. Instead of going for the heavy hitters, try fundraising at the grass-roots level. Remember, when a lot of people each spare a little, it equals a little people giving a lot!

November and December are infused with the spirit of giving, even when the economy isn't the best. Plan properly and you'll still be able to fundraise with people through their best intentions.

New Fridge Frame Samples!
We now offer samples to go along with our Fridge Frame Fundraiser. A sample is a powerful tool that can help enrich your program and drive up sales. How many times when you buy things online do you wish you can see, touch, and feel what you are actually buying? For a small fee of $3.00 per sample (free shipping!), you will receive sample of our Fridge Frames valued at $10.00

Your members can use these samples to help sell more Fridge Frames for your fundraiser. Your members will no longer find themselves having a hard time trying to describe the Fridge Frames and more time showing their supporters what a great product it is. They can simply hand them the sample to the supporter, who can see and feel the quality of our Fridge Frames.

What is even better is for every 20 Fridge Frames you group sells, we will pay you back for a sample and then they are yours to keep!

If you are interested in ordering samples please contact us at (866) 432-7838 or simply order them online by clicking here.
