I am on the fundraising committee for my daughter’s school field trip to Washington DC. I have a list of things that I have brainstormed but just wondering if you have any ideas or examples of non-profit fundraising?
Jay’s Answer: There’s the indirect and direct form of raising money. Indirect things are “buy this product/service from me, and it’ll help me get closer to our goal”. Direct things are “sponsor our trip to DC and we’ll have your (business name) on our bus’s banner (or our trip t-shirts)”.
Direct things can leverage your time. A few good sponsors can be the equivalent of selling 1000 brownies.
