Tell Us About Your Most Successful Fundraiser
Amy said: One of our most successful activities last season was a gift basket raffle. We had businesses donate a variety of items (some big, some small) and we assembled them into 14 different baskets.
We had several sports-based baskets with tickets to upcoming games, shirts, hats and other items and we had some with other themes like coffee and chocolate, pets, car care, spa items, etc. The baskets ranged in value with some baskets worth over $500.
In order to raffle the baskets off, tickets were sold - 2 tickets for $5, 5 tickets for $10, or 20 tickets for $20. The event raised well over $1,000 for our team which gave us the ability to reduce the last payment for everyone on the team.
Editor's Note: To increase your earnings on this fundraiser, consider raising ticket prices, basket value or number of baskets included. Congratulations to Amy Kowalski for her winning answer.
