Creating a product catalog for a fundraiser can be challenging. When deciding what kind of items you're going to sell, its good to consider two things: One, what kind of things do people WANT, and two, what kind of things do people NEED. It's also just good to think about what kind of organization you're running and who your audience is going to be. If you're running a fundraiser for a school, you could consider items kids might want, school pride merchandise, or things parents might want or need. Ultimately, you want to pick items you know are going to SELL. They should be priced high enough that you can make a profit, but low enough that they are accessible to potential supporters. What kind of items you choose can also depend on how high your fundraising goal is, and what your budget is for the fundraiser. For these concerns and more, we've put together a need-to-know list for you so that you can decide what to sell for your fundraiser! Let's get to it!

School Pride Merchandise

If your fundraiser is for a school or is being organized by a school, school pride merchandise is a great way to raise funds! Think hoodies, crew neck sweaters, t-shirts, tote bags, hats, socks, maybe even some custom jewelry! The students and parents of your school will be more than happy to represent their place of education and also look stylish in the process! These are perfect for everyday wear or to use for school sporting events or even just to wear on a chilly day. Reach your goals with school pride!

Cookie Catalog

Who can resist the promise of delicious cookies? Create a cookie catalog for your potential supporters to fill out and send them boxes of their delicious choices or the cookie dough needed to bake them. A great way to convince your audience to follow through is to educate them on the cause your fundraiser is going towards but also giving them samples of the cookies they can purchase! Set up a sample station or put on a small bake sale and let people know that they can have these cookies in bulk by filling out your form and donating money towards your cause! It's a sweet treat with a sweeter meaning!
