Raising Funds and Awareness for your Charity
2016 is here and the efforts to raise funds for your cause or charity are no doubt being renewed and refreshed! Fundraising is the most important part of any charity campaign, however it can be difficult to know where to start when you’re in the planning stages. There are so many options when it comes to branded merchandise that can boost funds and awareness for any cause. It’s hard to know where to start but for many popular causes wristbands and collection tins are a great staple fundraising and promotional tool. To mark the start of the new year, PAC Promotional Products are offering discounts on multi-buy packs of collection boxes and tins with silicone or rubber wristbands, printed with your charity details.
Silicone wristbands are by far one of the most popular pieces of charity merchandise to sell as they are low cost, practical to wear in support of a cause and fashionable. They can also be displayed with a collection box at any number of venues for easy distribution and fundraising. The Poppy Appeal and Help for Heroes are prime examples of successful wristband campaigns and this method could help raise your cause to the same status of popularity.
Here are some further tips that will help your campaign to be a success!
Before any planning takes place you need to specify the purpose of your event or cause; it’s probably to raise money, but that shouldn’t be the only goal. No doubt the charity in question is important to you, so you not only need to raise money, but awareness. The more people who are aware of the issue, the more people can spread the word and raise more money!
Consider who your target audience is; whilst you’d like to target everybody, not everyone will be interested in the same thing. Focus on one particular age group at a time, to make sure that you are as appealing as you can be to each sector and make a plan.
Promoting your fundraising campaign is essential. A charity couldn’t be very successful without that. There are many different ways that you can promote and market your campaign and cause, from events to T-shirts. Charity wristbands have proven to be an exceptional way to raise awareness and money; Cancer Research UK, NSPCC and Macmillan have all been known to include a wristband campaign in their fundraising techniques.
Remember to say thank you. Whatever the donation, whatever the turn out, you must always say thank you to those who donate not only money, but time and energy. Charity campaigning isn’t easy and it can take a lot of time. If people feel appreciated for their hard work, then your fundraising event or campaign is more likely to be successful. A successful campaigning event doesn’t just need exceptional promotional devices, but also planning and careful consideration. So good luck with your event, we hope it’s a success!
