Church Fundraising: The Ultimate Guide best church fundraisers

Fundraising is not an easy thing to do, so we’re here with tips to lead you on the right path! That is what this guide is for, so we’ll help you with the nitty-gritty planning details and then your church fundraiser will be that much easier to take care of.

You may be wondering how we can help you. Well here at Rada Mfg. Co. we have been working with various groups and organizations on their fundraising goals since 1948. We’ve been around the block a few times, and now we are ready to help you out as well. Basically, fundraising is in our blood.

After releasing our Ultimate Guide to Fundraising, we realized that it might be a good idea to write a guide specific to churches and faith-based groups and organizations. A large percentage of the groups we work with fit into this category and when thinking about it, we realized that a church fundraiser can be a very different process than other fundraisers.

What You Will See In Here

We will guide you through the three-part process of fundraising. They are (of course) the basic beginning, middle, and end. Within the these three parts we will break it down even more into questions you should be asking and what you should be planning at each stage. Also since faith-based fundraising can be very different than fundraising with other groups or nonprofits, we have a few tips about how to handle faith-based fundraising versus other types. This guide can help you answer any concerns people may have regarding church fundraising. best church fundraisers

To help you out even more we’ve included a few resources at the end. These include a checklist to make sure you are on track while fundraising, as well as examples of promotional materials you can use to promote and advertise your fundraiser. These examples will be a great place for you to start especially if you aren’t familiar with writing materials for advertising.

The Basics

There are three steps to take to complete a fundraiser:

1. Planning

2. Fundraising

3. Wrapping Up

Now within each of these three steps there will be a section called Ask Yourself. These are questions that you should have answers to during each stage of your fundraising process. Ask yourself these when you have problems that need solving, such as raising money, building a committee, finding a leader, recruiting fundraiser volunteers, deciding on a fundraiser, creating a plan for future fundraisers, or any other issue that is giving you trouble.

Throughout your fundraising process keep these questions in mind!
