    Even for experienced fundraisers, fundraising can still be challenge. It can be difficult to know how to get attention, how to approach potential supporters, and determining what kind of products to offer. Here are some practical principles and best practices for your fundraising success:


    1. Make sure to have a variety of options available to cater to all potential supporters. As you think about how to appeal to potential supporters, keep in mind that it is important to have a variety of options available. This way, you can cater to the different needs and preferences of each individual.

    2. Ensure your table is visible from a distance by using bright colours and/or signs. When setting up your fundraising table, be sure to use colours and get noticed with a signage that will make your table visible from a distance. This will help draw in potential customers and help you make the most of your fundraising. 

    Top Tips for Fundraising

    To improve the look and feel of your fundraising table, consider dressing it up with the Poppy Mpressions Tablecloth. Our We Will Remember Them Indoor bow banner as well as We Will Remember Them 1800 x 900 fabric flag with eyelets that offer flexibility in how it can be displayed. Designed for maximum visibility, these are also great items to sell to interested parties.

    3. Be friendly and engaging with potential donors, making eye contact and smiling. Keep in mind that people are more likely to support if they feel a personal connection to the cause, so take the time to chat and get to know them a bit.


    Pro tip: One effective way to raise funds is to give stickers to kids! This helps to draw business from parents. Our Poppy Stickers are a great way to engage potential donors. Be sure to have plenty on hand to maximize your fundraising efforts!

    4. Have a clear and concise pitch ready, explaining what you are raising money for and why it is important. Asking for support can be difficult, but it's important to be clear and concise about what you're raising money for and why their purchase is important. Having a pitch ready will make it easier to approach potential donors (and businesses) and explain your cause.

    The Merchandise & Display Stands were quite useful for the City-New Farm RSL Sub-Branch Remembrance Day Fundraising 


    The fantastic Veterans Support Merchandise and Display Stand and Poppy Recollections Merchandise and Stand are easy and convenient ways to get your local retailers involved in your fundraising efforts. Simply request their support, drop off the unit, and then collect the proceeds and any leftover stock that can be returned as part of our sale or return guarantee to you. This will definitely make it easier for the business community to rally behind you this time.


    5. Always express your gratitude towards supporters, no matter the size of their purchase or contribution. This will encourage them to purchase from you again in the future. Here are ways on how you can say thanks.
