How To Run A Jellybean Jar Fundraiser

Dec 15 2017

A jellybean jar fundraiser is a really easy way to raise money for any cause. The premise is super simple, and it can run for any duration of time you see fit. The timeline of your fundraiser depends on how often your supporters will see your jellybean jar, here's how your fundraiser works:


What you'll need for your fundraiser:

You don't need much for a jellybean jar fundraiser, almost everything you need is in the name! You'll need a big bag of jellybeans, and you'll need to count exactly how many are going into the jar. Have a second jar for your supporters to guess and a third jar for their entry fee. You'll also need squares of paper and pens so that your supporters can submit their guesses. Make sure you're guessing jar is opaque so your supporters can't see what anyone else wrote. 


Volunteers for your fundraiser:

This fundraiser doesn't require a ton of volunteer time. The most time-consuming parts of your fundraiser are the initial jellybean counting, and sorting through the submissions. If you're running your event in one day, as an addition to a school carnival, for example, you're going to want a couple volunteers manning your jellybean jar to make sure that the contest runs smoothly. 


How people enter in your fundraiser:

Participants pay a fee in order to submit a guess. Don't limit the number of times a supporter can enter, you want your fundraiser to raise as much money as possible. 


Where to run your fundraiser:

If you're running your fundraiser at a community or school, you can have the jellybean jar displayed in an area that is frequented by people, so that they can remember to submit their answers. This only works if you're running your fundraiser for a longer period of time, and is the most hands-off option. If you want to run your fundraiser at another fundraising event, that works too. Jellybean Jar fundraisers compliment almost any fundraising event. 


When to run your fundraiser:

You can run your fundraiser at any time of year, but if your jellybean jar fundraiser falls during a festive time of year, theme your jellybean jar! If your fundraiser is running during the Christmas season, have red and green jellybeans. If you're running your fundraiser during Valentine's Day season, have pink and red jellybeans. 



Prizing for your fundraiser:

Usually, the winner of the competition gets to keep the jar of jellybeans. If you want to have an additional prize, gift cards are a great idea. 


Bonus cash back for your fundraiser:

Earn up to 10% cash back on items for your fundraiser when you have a FlipGive fundraising page. If you choose to have a gift card prize, you can earn up to 15% cash back on that as well!
