November Fundraising Ideas
5 Ideas for a Fundraiser in November
November is a great time for fundraising campaigns. People are feeling thankful and are generous to worthy causes.
It’s a little late to start an order-taker type fundraiser, since customers usually like for their products to arrive before Christmas. If you start early in November, there may be time, but check with your distributor to be sure. You should probably stick with things that can be bought up-front, with no waiting.
There are many ways to earn funds in November, but here are five of our favorite ideas to get you started. You can find more information on all of these below.
NOTE: With our New Normal, fundraising is more difficult. Some of the ideas below may not work at this time.
