How To Run A Custom Calendar Fundraiser

November 15 2017

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

A custom calendar fundraiser is a great way to raise money for your team, cause, or school. The great thing about custom calendars is, you can add important dates that wouldn’t be featured on a regular calendar, like tournaments or community events. You can also customize the photos featured in the calendar, and add fun things like team member birthdays or special days off from school. 


What you’ll need for your fundraiser:

First and foremost, you’re going to need a good camera so that you can take photos for each month of your calendar. These photos can be anything you want. If you’re raising money for a sports team, you could have one player as the photo for each month, or one photo from each game. If you’re raising money for a school or community centre, try to find photos that illustrate events that take place each month of the year, and use those as the photos for each month of your calendar for your fundraiser. 


How to handle orders for your fundraiser:

The great thing about hosting a custom calendar fundraiser is that your items are made to order. This means that you never have to order more than you need, saving your fundraiser money in the long run. Print out order forms for your fundraiser and have them available at your school, community centre, or kids games. You’ll also want to send out an email communication for your fundraiser, so that you can send your supporters the form online as well. 


Bonus cash back for your fundraiser:

Purchase your custom calendars through a brand on FlipGive, and you could earn up to 10% extra cash back for your campaign. Bonus? Once your fundraiser is over, your team can still raise money on FlipGive the rest of the year.
