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.

Create Custom Challenge Coins to Raise Funds for Your Worthy Cause

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

If you’re in charge of fundraising, you can shed light on your worthy cause in a truly unique and memorable way.  Rather than rely on old tactics to see you through an event, why not try something different and help the organization raise more money than ever before?  One of the ways you can do just that is by creating custom challenge coins in honor of the cause that you’re planning on supporting.  The unique mementos are a real crowd pleaser.

The Customization Process is a Time for Exploration

Challenge coins can be customized in a number of different ways to reflect an organization’s needs and preferences.  For example, some of our customers prefer traditional shaped coins.  They like circular, square, and rectangular shapes and ask that their items look a certain way.

Other customers like specialty coins.  They want their items cut-to-shape to outline a logo, emblem or other image.  This helps draw interest in the cause by being easily recognizable at a distance.  People are used to seeing familiar objects and symbols.

Shape is one way customers can put their own spin on the design process.  Some other ways they can customize their coins include adding bottle opener mechanisms to the mementos, framing the artwork with a decorative edge, cutting out different areas of the metal, and even having the coins sequentially numbered to make them seem rare and extra special.

Selecting an image or photograph and the right text can make a world of difference.  The purpose of a coin can be to educate, inform, instruct, encourage, reward or to thank.  Your fundraising coins can be used to provide information about your cause as well as serve as a call to action requesting that people donate or spread the word about your efforts.
