    Tips for a Successful Wine Fundraiser

    Check your events calendar

    When considering when to run the wine fundraiser keep special events, school holidays and public holidays in mind. People usually like to have their wine before these events. Running a wine fundraiser during these times also means a lot of your members may be away so might not be in the position to order.

    Plan Ahead

    Try and plan all of your wine fundraisers for the year ahead. That way you can get organized early and you can also let those who ordered know when the next one will be ahead of time! It’s also great to get some pre-promotion time before each fundraiser so people know it’s coming and can plan their wine purchases ahead of time.

    Focus Your Efforts

    Try not to run a Wine Fundraiser while running other fundraising activity. This enables you to really focus your energies on one thing at a time to make sure it really works for you. This also avoids your members feeling overloaded.

    Take It One Step Further – Successful Ideas That Have Worked In The Past!

    Here’s a list of strategies some groups have use successfully in the past that might give you some ideas for your next fundraiser!

     

    Consistency is Key

    Run the wine fundraiser at the same time each term/each year. Some schools run a wine fundraiser in the same week of each term and only run it for 1 week. People know exactly when the next fundraiser will be happening so they can plan ahead their wine purchases. The other great thing is that the wine fundraiser doesn’t go on too long, so it’s less work for the committee and your members don’t get sick of hearing about it!

    Compulsory Participation

    Many Hands Make Light Work. While this sounds a scary thing to ask of your members, most people these days know that fundraising is essential to the successful operation of any non-profit group. If you are reading this, there is no doubt you are always one of those people who always get 100% behind any fundraising efforts and then watch so many others sit back and do nothing while reaping the benefits of the same committed few.

    Some sporting clubs ask ALL of their members to participate by asking every member to buy at least 1 dozen. If a member is not in a position to buy themselves, they are asked to get someone they know to buy. If 700 members all bought 1 dozen each you would raise anything between $7,000 and $21,000!! Apart from the thousands of dollars we would donate, the effort is shared!

    Individual Donations “A Great Incentive”

    If fundraising for a trip for your sporting group, each player can be rewarded for their individual fundraising efforts by putting the donation raised by that person directly towards the cost of their trip. This provides a great incentive to help boost your donations. One family who was sending their child on a trip was up for $2000 in costs. Just from the wine fundraiser alone they individually raised $790 so only had to fund the remaining amount. All your members have to do is nominate the player they want the donation to go to and we do all of the breakdowns for you, so it’s no extra work for you.

    Before the Wine Fundraiser
