I've organized my ideas into categories (Events; Services; Things You Can Sell; Merchant Teaming; Seasonal/Holiday), each of which I discuss in a separate blog entry.
Without further ado, here's a list of fundraisers that involve teaming with merchants or corporate scholarships.
- Scrip/gift cards
- Rebate programs
- Coupon books & discount cards
- Entertainment books
- Discount cards
- Preferred shopping events
- Preferred dining events
- Restaurant-catered dinner
- Outright donation
- Sell advertising in one of your organization’s products.
- Place company ad in program, yearbook, or directory.
- Place company name/logo on event-related teeshirts, posters, flyers, websites, tickets, etc.
- Place company sign/banner in local venue (gym, hall, cafeteria)
- Company employees get to participate in event (ex: judges at science fair)
