Template – Opt In or Opt Out

 

Some organisations like to include an opt in/opt out option for parents or community members who are too busy, don’t like fundraising, or who would prefer to donate funds rather than sell products.

You might like to consider an opt in/opt out notice to maximise participation. This can also save you time in the long run, as it means you are aware upfront who won’t be involved.

We recommend using Opt Out, rather than Opt In, as most people will be involved if products are sent home.

 


 

Suggested ‘Opt-out’ notice

 

Dear Parent/member,

Every year we run fundraising activities so that we can raise money to pay for essential equipment for our organisation/school.

This year we are working with Living Fundraisers and we are asking our supporters to sell [insert product].

We have chosen Living Fundraisers because they offer Australian made, organic and healthy products that are good for the environment.

We believe that this fundraiser sets a better example than the traditional cake or chocolate drives. We get a percentage of every single sale so the more people involved, the more we sell and the more money we make!

We would love to have your support and ask you help out by selling the product. If, however, you do not wish to be involved, please contact [name, phone/email] by [date] and let them know. We do ask that in lieu of your involvement, that you make a donation of $[amount].

Kind regards[insert name/position/organisation]
