You’ve heard of “shop local” but what about “fundraise local?”
For many schools, churches and organizations, fundraising is a challenge. You plan, sell, and work hard to get people to your event. It’s exhausting for you, the students, and the parents. Everyone is grinding day and night to try to raise enough money to support a specific cause.
What if there were easy fundraising ideas to bring your local organization more buyers and money? With local businesses, there is. Local businesses give your organization an upper hand when it comes to fundraising. Here’s how:
Local businesses work hard to build a following in the area and build a reputation of trust. When you host a fundraiser, you get access to the group of people already interested in what’s happening at the local business. You also tap into the trusted reputation of the local business. It’s this following and backing that gets your fundraiser more exposure while drumming up excitement in the community.
The money spent with local businesses goes directly back into the community. The people employed in these businesses live and work in the area. They spend their money at other businesses in the area, which builds your local economy. This support of your community makes it easier for your organization to thrive in the long run.
Your local business owners also have family and friends living and working in your community. They care about the success of the area and are more incentivized to give back – especially to fundraisers that support local groups. By having this increased incentive, you get more support for your fundraiser, which helps make it easier and more successful.
