The Fundraiser Prospecting Sheet

Successful fundraising begins with a plan

Before you send your group out to sell, ask them to write down who they feel will buy from them. This is where prospecting sheets can help jump-start your fundraiser.

Creating a list of prospects creates a sales roadmap for your students. The prospecting sheet also allows them to track their progress as they go.

This helps them identify people they feel comfortable approaching which will make the selling process easier and helps reinforce seller confidence as well as the likelihood of making more sales.

It only takes a couple of successful encounters to create positive momentum needed to ultimately reach their sales goal. Finally, brainstorming on a list also causes students to think of additional people to talk to.

Creating and Tracking Your List

Have your students complete a prospect list during your kickoff meeting by identifying 15 people they agree to approach over the next 3 days. Once they have approached someone, regardless of whether they buy or not, ask them to check the ‘approached’ box. If the prospect ends up making a purchase, have them check the ‘purchased’ box.

Ideas for Prospects

Coming up with prospects can be endless and may include your postal carrier, grocery clerk, gas station attendant, teachers, paper carrier, minister, youth leader, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, grandparent’s, fellow workers, other classmates, just to name a few.

Having your sellers complete their fundraiser prospecting sheets will help make getting started much easier. As opposed to simply going out to attempt to make random sales to anyone, students will now be able to use a well-defined ‘cheat sheet’.

To ensure that your students are updating their list, we recommend asking them to periodically show it to you. To make this even more fun and motivational, consider incorporating our Money Incentive Game into your check in days

The fundraiser went extremely well. From my perspective I had very little leg work to do. Collecting and mailing was all and when the product arrived it was very well organized into the individual classes. I think it went very well and will look forward to running it again next year.
