Effective and affordable fundraising items are crucial to raising money and awareness.
Supporting a cause you believe in is a noble gesture but it involves an investment of time and money. Nearly 70 percent of Americans donated $410 billion to charities in 2017, according to Nonprofits Source. To reach that population you need a draw. That’s where personalized fundraising and awareness items come in.
Get moving in the right direction with quality merchandise that promotes your message without slaying your budget. Customized promotional products can be distributed by you at events or special promotions. They also can be sold by you to raise money for your organization.
Look for durable fundraising products that are easy to store and transport. Choose items that fit your theme and the audience you are targeting. Lastly, buy in bulk to save money and reach your fundraising goals.
