Springing Forward into Fundraising Season

Spring is finally here, and with it come exciting fundraising events. Community and corporate BBq’s, picnics, bike-a-thons and run/walk-a-thons are all great opportunities to fundraise.

Finding sponsorship and participants can be a challenge, but with the right promotional product company providing you with quality solutions, it can be a breeze – and that’s where we come in.

First, look at putting together registration kits with information on the cause, as well as a cause branded item as a ‘Thank You’ gift. In addition, provide items like awareness bands or buttons, for participants and volunteers to give to people willing to ‘donate’ to the cause.

Third, be sure to identify your volunteers – whether it’s a brightly coloured T-shirt, vest, or hat; it is important that they ‘stand out’ in the crowd to answer questions and direct people. A wearable item should be made available to all the participants, as a commemorative item, as well as a way to identify with the group during the event.

And don’t forget to offer your sponsors the chance to include their logo on some of the promotional items, especially
the participants’ T-shirts.

The right promotional products can help elevate an event, and make it a memorable experience for all involved.
