How to Prepare for a Successful Fundraising Event

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

A successful fundraising event takes effort.  With that being said, what are you doing now to generate interest in your fundraiser?  Have you thought about what you’ll sell?  Are custom challenge coins something you’ve been considering?  If so, we’d like to help you!

Custom challenge coins are among the most attractive and versatile items available.  Created from your choice of metals and in the size, shape, and style that best meets your needs, our products are exceptional pieces of art.  They’re crafted from fine quality materials with a great deal of care so that their intricate designs shine through.  A look at our online gallery can help you determine what makes a stand out fundraising challenge coin design.

Here are some suggestions that will help make your next fundraising event successful:

  1. Prepare for your event month in advance. Contact Challenge Coins Plus with your request right away and we can have your coins to you just as soon as you approve the design and the items are manufactured.  Order packages at this time as well so the coins will be ready to sell at your fundraiser.
  2. Find some sponsors willing to help you. Include the area businesses that provide sponsorship on the coins that you create.  This is a great way to foster long lasting relationships in your community and secure assistance for future fundraising events.
  3. Promote, promote, promote. Set up an event page where people can go for information.  Make sure to add a photo of your fundraising coin on your website.  Let people know that it is available for sale and how much it costs.
  4. Send out invitations well in advance. Set up reminders because people are often busy and sometimes forget.  Email updates to the people who sign up for your mailing list online.
  5. Sell your coins. Make the reason for your fundraiser clear.  Inform the public what all monies raised will do for your community.  Set aside coins for people who cannot make it to your event but still want to pitch in by donating.

Lung Cancer Awareness Challenge Coins for Your Fundraiser

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month.  Chances are you’re planning a fundraising event for the upcoming initiative.  If you are, might we suggest ordering custom challenge coins to sell?  The popular mementos grab people’s interest and get them talking about your special event or money maker.

Custom coins are ideal fundraisers for a number of different reasons.  Let’s look at a few:

  • Coins are unique.  Each business, organization or group has their own vision and design for their custom challenge coins.  This increases the appeal of the item by making them sentimental.
  • Coins have higher perceived value than other items.  Because of their military ties and rich symbolism, people feel distinctly honored when given a custom coin.
  • Coins are easy-to-transport.  If your event is in another city or state, you can carry or ship coins easily.
  • Coins options are endless.  Simple or ornate, you have options in regards to how your fundraising coins look.  Choose a decorative edge, 3D emblems, sequential numbering, and dual plating.

Make this year’s fundraiser a success by ordering custom challenge coins for Challenge Coins Plus today.  Visit http://www.challengecoinsplus.com to see examples of coins that we’ve created in the past.  Submit your design ideas to info@challengecoinsplus.com or call 1-800-252-0904 toll-free for more information.

We’ll send you a free price quote and an email containing a full color representation of the artwork that we created for you.  Once you approve the design and pay for your order, we submit it to our production department for manufacturing.  Your custom coins are then delivered to your doorstep in time for your event.
