How to Successfully Promote your Shoe Fundraiser
Motivating your Volunteers
Promotional Materials to Increase Shoe Donations
Printed materials are another great way to promote your fundraiser. You can find a plethora of resources available on the The Fundraising Company website, including, goal setting materials, check lists, flyer templates and so on. If there is anything you can’t find on there you can always reach out to your TFC fundraising guide to make sure you have everything you need. You can also utilize your fundraising guide to make you personalized flyers and social media posts. Want to increase your shoe donations across your entire region, fill out a press release form, send it to your fundraising guide with a list of local papers and they will reach out to the editors to share the news! Once this is done, your shoe donations will be overflowing!
Make sure all of your promotional materials provide the donor with all the detailed information they need to donate to your drive. This includes how, when and where they can drop off shoe donations. These details should be anywhere you’re promoting, this includes not only flyers but also any and every social media platform you have. If you don’t have any social media accounts try reaching out to some friends, family members, or volunteers who do and ask them to share! Take advantage of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn Patch, the opportunities are endless!!
Not only should you be sharing the details of how people can donate, but share your fundraising journey along the way as well! You can share photos or fun short videos of your fundraising volunteers collecting, sorting and packaging up the shoe donations that have been collected!
Share the Stage with Other Events!
More often that you would think people want to be helpful, and cherish the opportunity to give back to their community in ways that are impactful and easy. Give anyone who may be interested in your fundraiser and opportunity to get involved! Whether you are a school fundraiser or not reach out to local schools in your area and ask to set up shoe donation boxes. This can also be done at gyms, churches, libraries and malls! The opportunity for others to join in on your fundraiser can be unlimited!
Don’t discount small ways that others can help promote your fundraiser. Some locals may not have the time to be full time volunteers but still want to help spread the word. This is a great way to get local businesses in your area involved in your fundraiser. They can leave donation bins at their brick and mortar store, or simply spread the word with a simple flyer.
Shoe Donations Boxed Up
You have put in the leg work of promoting your fundraiser all throughout town and donations are pouring in. This is the time you need to decide how you are going to accept and collect all your donations! At The Fundraising Company all your shoes need to be packaged up in large moving boxes before pick up. Because of this we always recommend starting your collection in boxes as well. This way when they’re full all you have to do is tape it shut and on to the next one! You can also paste flyers or decorate your collection box however you see fit! Use this opportunity to make your shoe donation box a real eye catcher!
