Our experience was great!!!
Clay was great and helped me all the way through with any and all questions I had!
I thought it went surprisingly well! I think it was quite easy to sell and promote our fundraiser. If anything, I personally saw the individual sellers as confusing but I can see how it would work better for a classroom group.
Great! Having an online fundraiser that delivered the cookie dough straight to the participants during the pandemic was a great way to go.
Ordering the product was simple and we received it quickly. I would definitely use this company for future fundraising events!
Everything was great. The sale of the items was easy because they were so varied. Our order was shipped quickly and it was perfect. Most importantly, our customers were all very satisfied. We will definitely use you again for our fundraising needs. The overall service that we received was exceptional. Product quality was outstanding. We highly recommend you.
We sold all the products in the line.
It was ok. I was expecting it to work better however many of of customers complained about the high shipping cost. We did receive good compliments on the over quality of the cookies.The shipping was just too expensive.
Great! It was good having an online sale and not having to deal with individual shipping ourselves.
The overall experience was good.
My group was pleased with the product selection. They were excited to see a well put together selection of items to chose from.
The delivery went well. All orders were delivered as promised. The driver was prompt and pleasant. This was our first time partnering with Big Fundraising Ideas and it was a learning experience. I personally want to thank you and Clay for being patient and understanding as we navigated through our fundraiser. I'm sure the next time would be smooth sailing.
Consider offering ‘impulsive-buy’ products. It's hard to resist items like popcorn, candy, or beef jerky.
We recommend selling scratch cards or discount cards. Personalize either one with your group name and picture. This is also a great way to promote your club and cause.
Promote school spirit and unity by offering a custom tumbler with your name, colors, and logo. Before selling any product related to your school, find out if there is an approval process.
If you’re selling out of a brochure, we recommend two full weeks. To sell a product, give your group 1 week.
Groups raise almost $2 billion each year selling products. The advantage of working with a company is a lot of the work is done for you. Thus, you don’t need to design and develop your fundraiser from scratch. Learn more
Fundraising as part of a college group can be one of the most straightforward of any sales campaign. With this demographic, it’s less about the sales pitch and more about the actual cause. Focus on targeting your audience and engaging them in the purpose behind the project.
Say you need promotional materials to generate excitement and interest in student government. Try selling the pretzel rods with a clever note or informational card attached.
College students are simple customers. They’re much more likely to spend their money on causes they care about and for a tasty snack.
Kendal Tumblers are a perfect example. They'll attract attention to the cause behind your college fundraiser. Because they’re customizable, you can add a logo that’s relevant to the purpose of your fundraiser.
Personalized items are versatile. You can gain support while creating a talking point around an important social issue.
If you sell them alongside freshly brewed coffee, these 20 oz. mugs will get everyone through their 8 a.m. classes. These mugs are perfect for teams, sororities, or any club that could feature a group photo in the design.
Consider getting a local roaster to donate some coffee. You can offer a free cup for anyone who purchases a tumbler during exam week.
Or maybe it’s Earth Day, and you want to start an initiative to beautify the campus. Try selling flower seeds to students who live off campus and want to spruce up their yards a little.
The Spring Flowers brochure even features fruit seeds. You could market them in a culinary fundraiser direction. Those interested in sustainability may find this an appealing college fundraising idea. Learn how to start your own college club
Among the most profitable college fundraising ideas will be a snack-related item. If you’ve ever stepped foot on a college campus early morning or mid-afternoon, foot traffic is prominent.
Many students skip meals because the dining halls are too far from class. Or they don’t have enough time, and a quick snack is essential.
Know your audience, and cater to their needs! Park your fundraiser in a high-traffic spot. You’re sure to grab attention where paths cross, and students are everywhere.
The variety pack popcorn and beef sticks are ideal for these spots. It’s never too early to plan for a grumbly stomach after a three-hour lecture.
Don’t forget that you deal with adults when you’re fundraising on a college campus. Make sure your cause makes sense, and your intent is genuine.
College students are a tough marketing audience because they can see through gimmicks. All the snacks in the world can’t save you from a student who is already in a rush and feels you’re being too pushy. Check out how to fundraise for a cause
Great college fundraising ideas are often born out of ingenuity. If you pair your product with an organization that makes sense, you’ll be on the road to reaching your goals.
