It's that time of year again...Yesterday I got my fundraising packet out and started making calls and sending emails. Our walk in on May 1st at 9am in Wooster at Ida Sue School. I can't believe how quickly it is approaching!
I called CiCi's Pizza to set up some "Dough Raisers" where 10% of the receipts will go towards a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis. I'm planning on doing one on Tues Jan 26th from 5pm-8pm and then one each month from now until May. I'm going to make them A-Team events where associates from Kohl's will come and help buss tables so that Kohl's will donate $500 each month.
I plan on calling to get CiCi's to do Pin-ups again where customers can donate $1 towards a cure when they check out and in return their name will go up on the wall. I might be able to get about 15 CiCi's to do them if all goes well:)
I called Friendly's to see if we could do a fundraiser there too. I just have to get all the paper work filled out and then set up a time and date. They donate 15% of all receipts!
It's also time to start getting things set up for our walk too. I emailed Panera Bread to see if they could donate any food for the day of the walk. Hopefully that works out and if not, maybe they could do Pin-ups to help raise money???
I've also been thinking about getting a head start on our commercial for our walk. I'll post it at the top of my blog when I get it finished and leave it there until the day of the walk, just like I did last year;)
I'll let you know more when I find out,
PS. Please share with me any other good fundraising ideas that have worked for you. I love doing something new;-)
Aaaahhhh! - It was one of the more important affirmations I've had in my ministry. It was 2011 and Shaina and I were going through a Church Planters Assessment to see ...
