The Advantage of a January Fundraiser

January is generally a slow time of year for fundraising, but you can use this to your advantage and hold a simple, quick fundraiser when people aren’t getting bombarded with request from other fundraising groups. We suggest something quick and easy for January. And, start planning something bigger for February and the upcoming Spring fundraising season.

In January, everyone is thinking of getting healthy and they’re full of holiday sweets, so go with a healthy food fundraiser. Of course, with Valentine’s Day coming up, by late January, you could offer the delectable Katydids Candy for gift giving.

With the sometimes cold and snowy January, we recommend an online fundraiser, with no need to go outside, door-to-door, because it’s all done online and ships to customer’s home. What could be easier than that?

Quick & Easy Is the Way to Go for a January Fundraiser!
