It’s easy to get started
- Choose a date for your fundraiser – our seasonal planner can help you decide on when best to run your fundraiser and assist with what products sell best at what time of year.
- Select how you want to conduct your fundraiser – take home, stall/display, order form, web shop (see explanations of each below).
- Choose the products you want to sell (you can choose one type or a range)
- Choose product quantities if running a take home or stall/event drive. We can assist you with this. Living Fundraisers has made it super easy to run a fundraiser, we are with you every step of the way.
We have created a library chock full off templates and downloads to help you communicate, promote and conduct your fundraiser, and there’s always phone support if you need that little bit of extra support.
Fundraising Drive Options
Living Fundraisers offers a number of different models of fundraising: Take-Home, Stall/Display, Order Form, and our new Customised Webshop option. Modelled on the well-known chocolate drive, the take-home option generally raises the most funds as people are more inclined to buy items that are right in front of them, rather than having to wait. Also, kids in particular get very excited about their goodies that they get to take-home! Research has shown that take-home fundraisers average 8-10 units sold per participant which is why we pack our products in sets of 5-10 units.
Our new Customised Webshop option can be coupled with other fundraising options to allow you to expand your fundraising reach past your local community.
Each family or participant takes home a set of products in a carry bag or box. They then buy and/or sell the items and return the payments to the coordinator.
Minimum order is 10 sets in total, no upfront costs for approved organisations, free delivery for over 50 sets, returns accepted on most items.
Our recommendation for stalls, events and display fundraisers is to order the minimum requirement of 10 sets. If running a number of events or combining with a take-home drive, you are welcome to order more. Minimum order is 10 sets in total, no upfront costs for approved organisations, free delivery for over 50 sets, returns accepted on most items.
Each family or participant takes home an order form and collects orders and money. The coordinator then collates the orders, places the order with us, then distributes items back to participants. No minimum order, payment required upon dispatch, free delivery for over 500 items, returns not accepted.
Customised FUNdraising Webshop
We’re proud to announce the launch of our new Customised Webshop online ordering system. Each fundraising group can now have a personalised webstore to help sell their fundraising products far and wide. It takes the hassle out of collating paperwork and handling payments, leaving fundraising coordinators with more time for promotional activities. We set up a personalised webstore for your fundraiser, you distribute a unique code to your participants to share so shoppers can order and pay online. We collect all the funds and collate the orders, then distribute the products to you for distribution to purchasers. We also offer buyers the option of shipping direct to their home (shipping fee applies). We then send you the profits from your drive. EASY!
This option can be combined with other fundraising options to enable you to expand your fundraiser reach past that of your local community.
