The summer is always a great time for carnival fundraisers. Schools, churches, community groups and all types of organizations know that carnivals are found to be the most successful tool for fundraising and creating a feeling of good will among the attendees.
Your organization can take advantage of the unique benefits carnival fundraisers have to offer. The first step is to form a committee and get a good staff of volunteers. Make sure you have your permits and a rental company with all of the fun carnival games. Get your community involved as they may donate some items or want to sponsor some of your event.
After you start selling those tickets, make sure you call Motivators. Selling promotional products at the event can bring in even more money for your cause. Tote bags, drinkware, t-shirts and hats are some great items that can be sold at a table at your event.You can also create more fun with giveaways that can be handed out around the carnival. Beach balls, flexible flyers, sunglasses and balloons are always a big hit as they can be enjoyed by all. Try to get some local vendors to co-brand the items, thus reducing the costs.
Food concessions are another spot where you can reinforce your name and your cause. Selling popcorn? Be sure to have imprinted popcorn boxes. Selling drinks? Then you need imprinted stadium cups.
While you are planning those booths and ordering that dunk tank and inflatable bounce house, don’t forget to call Motivators and let the games begin!
