January Fundraising Ideas
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.
THIS January, we recommend an online fundraiser. We now have order-takers with online stores, some that offer ship-to-home. Online fundraisers are what everyone is asking for.
