Tips for Successful Fundraising

Have you wanted to raise funds for an upcoming event? Or what about creative ways to bring in donations to your club for other expenses? Here are some wonderful tips!

  • Think OUTSIDE the box. Sure there are ways like bake sales, but think of hosting a free event/speaker and consider asking for donations there to support your club.
  • Club dues are a great way for students to become more active as they are financially invested in the club and its success.
  • Request donations from friends, family, and area businesses.

Come talk to Student Activities if you have any questions or thoughts! We do require you to let us know if you ARE planning to do fundraising. This way, we can ensure all University policies are followed (especially through Bake Sales and donations from area businesses).

Monthly Leadership Tip from LEAD Team

Communication is key!
Leaders need to constantly keep communication open in order to accomplish tasks efficiently and on time, especially when working with a team. Beyond accomplishing tasks, a culture of open communication helps group members feel more comfortable speaking their minds and sharing feedback with one another.
Good communication will:
  • Reduce the likelihood of tasks being left undone,
  • Confusion of responsibilities, and
  • Promote healthy working relationships between group members.
