Fundraising Ideas and Products Center offers traditional and unique fundraising solutions for everyone! Their organization has made fundraising fun and profitable for many people who are just getting started out and don’t know where to begin. FIPC realizes that organizing a fundraiser can be extremely ti me consuming for people so they have provided various resources to make it easier for you.
Their website offers: Do-It-Yourself Fundraising Ideas, Fundraising Information and Tips, Fundraising Newsletters, Finding A Fundraiser, Fundraising Products, and many more!
They have a very broad variety of fundraising ideas and products to choose from such as: candy bars, coffee, apparel, catalogs, eco-friendly, first aid, stationery, snacks, spirit, jewelry, discount cards, scratch cards and many others. Each of these items offer a link which sends you to other related items of your choice, along with websites to order from and a phone number for further questions.
In the Do-It-Yourself section, they have over 200 ideas for free that assist you and your to make it all on your own. Some of the ones I found interesting were: Food Fight, Adult Spelling Bee, Crazy Hat Day, Bra Chain, Tickets For Treats, Car Smash, and a Weight Loss Challenge. There are a variety of different ideas and they each offer a brief description of how you can go about it.
The Free Fundraising Newsletter is also a great resource that is offered on their site. It is a monthly subscription through email that provides you with the latest ideas and trends in fundraising. “Each issue includes news of fundraisers from around the world, a new or unusual do-it-yourself fundraiser, sources of fundraising products and services, spotlight on a non-profit, and even a little humor.”
