I just have to share what I have learned (first hand) recently. The fundraising bar has been raised. How many times have you been to a fundraising dinner or raffle and end the evening with a couple thousand dollars? Which is great but how does fifty to one hundred thousand dollars sound to you in one evening?
Yes, you read that right. This is almost too good to be true. Will this work for everybody? Absolutely not. But could it? Absolutely it could. People go to fundraisers to help out a cause or someone they know and love. So the way we ran this fundraiser is that the people who participated didn’t just give away their money, they actually were purchasing things that they really wanted. Win win.
This particular fund-raiser had about 450 to 500 people who participated. A lot but not really unusual. The folks don’t even need a lot of money. The average was like thirty dollars. OK so this just keeps getting better, 90% of the participants ended up getting almost as much as the person that needed the fundraiser. What? Does that even make sense? Yes, yes it does. It was amazing.
Let me give you a downside. I know, I know, there is always a catch. You would not get the money that night. But your check will be mailed out on the 15th of the next month. Oh ya and one more thing, you will receive a check each and every month from there on out for the rest of your life. Those checks wont be as much as that first one but will still be pretty darn good.
Trust me when I say that everyone walks away more than happy. Will everyone do it? No. There is always someone that wont get it, but that is alright. The majority will. If there are only 20 people who show up it would still work, but the initial check would only be like $1000 to $2000. Still not bad, but a big difference from $100,000.00.
There are so many more benefits that I haven’t even mentioned, but you get the idea. It is just mind-boggling how amazing the opportunity really is.
