How to Prepare for a School Fundraiser Kickoff

Get your students excited about selling

The kickoff is one of the most important parts of your entire fundraiser. The primary purpose of the kickoff is to generate enthusiasm and support for your cause. In other words, you have to sell your campaign to your students.

If you’re successful and your students buy in, you will have created much needed sales momentum that will ultimately help you reach your financial objective.

But creating enthusiasm and momentum is just the beginning. You’ll also need to work to keep the sales coming in throughout your fundraiser

In addition to preparing for your kickoff, this e-book touches on sales accountability, online selling, delivery issues, and post fundraiser analysis.

Our experience with y'all has been fantastic!!! Everyone in the office has been so helpful, especially with our endless questions! We really loved that the products came in already boxed with the students name, teacher and grade on a label! You have no idea how much stress that took off! That is always one of the biggest hassles!

Thank you so much for making this the most stress free fundraiser ever! We look forward to working with you again!
