Why You Should Fun-Raise In The Fourth Quarter!

Picking the right fundraising partner is just as important as picking the right time to position your organization for maximum philanthropic participation and donation opportunities.

Giving has seasons and some are more fruitful than others. So when you are picking your fundraising date, make sure it’s at a time when your supporters have disposable income or “tis the season” and they are feeling generous, the fourth quarter combines both of these to create a perfect scenario for giving…

5 Reasons To Fun-Raise In The Fourth:
  1. Nearly one third (31%) of annual giving occurs in the 4th quarter.
  2. November (46.2%) and December (30.8%) are the most popular months for making year-end asks, but 7.7% of orgs start as early as September.
  3. The fourth quarter is an extremely important time for nonprofits and charities. It’s a period when many of these organizations see a spike in donations as corporations and private donors have the resources allocated to donate.
  4. Fourth-quarter fundraising also gives nonprofits an opportunity to close out the year with momentum and start the new year off on the right foot with a healthy bank account.
  5. This time of year is a perfect time for fundraising because it’s a time when people are more likely to be emotionally invested in supporting your cause. Giving during the holidays is not just about giving money, but also volunteering your time and energy.

501cTees: NOT Fundraising….Fun-raising!

We have a problem with the term fundraising, it is FUNdamentally (see what I did there?) devoid of anything appealing and or FUN! There is a level of uncertainty and questions with every fundraiser. Will we make enough for our cause? How much effort is this going to take? Will the amount raised equal the amount of time we’ve invested to support our cause? How do I get the exposure to truly make this a successful effort to make an impact? We know fundraising takes your valuable time, effort, energy and constant promotion to make it work.

Our sole mission is to take the headache out of raising money for philanthropic events/organizations and have been doing so for over 20 years!

T-shirt Fun-Raising Is Never Out Of Style

3 Reasons Why Every Nonprofit Should Be Using T-Shirt Fundraising!

T-shirt Fun-Raising is Risk Free

If you’ve been holding off on fundraising due to cost concerns, you can put those fears to rest! When you use a platform like 501cTees for your t-shirt fundraisers, there are no upfront costs to worry about, our platform is 100% free to use, and you have access to our extensive product inventory at no extra cost to you. Plus, there are no hidden fees for not reaching a fundraising goal. This means your organization literally takes on zero financial risk when you launch a t-shirt campaign with 501cTees and we are going to donate back to your cause on every purchase.

T-shirt Fundraising Allows Organizations to Sell Cool Products As Donation For Fun-Raisers!

Selling merchandise affiliated with your organization and fundraiser add something valuable to the donation experience.

Giving doesn’t just take the form of online donations. It includes a broad spectrum of support by purchasing merchandise from your nonprofit as the donation.

The idea is to give the donor the option to purchase something that visually represents the cause while donating to it at the same time. This is a win-win…when supporters get involved, you’ll establish longer lasting connections with them over the course of your fundraising initiatives. And, who doesn’t love a good T-shirt?

Supporters Get Something In Return for Their Donation.

Creating fundraising campaigns where your supporters receive awesome shirts in exchange for their donations is a win-win for your supporters and your organization. Donors don’t usually expect to receive anything in return for their donations (other than the joy of knowing they helped out an organization that they believe in), so receiving a t-shirt is a bonus!
When your supporters are happy, they are much more likely to continue to support your cause and stick with your organization for the long run.

It’s a great way to say “THANK YOU!” to your supporters as well as give them something to be excited about that they will use and love day after day. It’s also an easy way for your organization to advertise, increase your brand exposure, and spread the word about your cause.


Fun-Raising Easy As 1-2-3!

Choose an All-in-One Online Fundraising System

Choosing an all-in-one, online fundraising system can be difficult, but not impossible. You need to know what your objectives are and what you want to achieve. Typically these are very simple: register your donors, track their donations and deliver the item they purchased to support the cause.

If you are looking for an all-in-one solution that can help with registration, donations, ongoing communications and the delivery of the product purchased, then 501cTees is for you.

Involve Your Supporters in Fundraising

It’s a great idea to involve supporters in fundraising campaigns as it helps build relationships with them and also creates a sense of ownership for the cause.

Supporters are more likely to donate and volunteer if they feel like they are contributing towards something that is important to them. It also provides an opportunity for supporters to feel the social impact of their contribution because they have contributed to the success of the campaign. 501cTees is completely supporter driven, from sales to support, by selling the product your supporters will be wearing!

Setup a Recurring Donation Program

A recurring donation program is a simple way to continue to fundraise on an evergreen basis. This can even out the donation curve and keep funding rolling, 24/7 x 365/days/year.

There are many ways that you can set up a recurring donation program, but the program at 501cTees is the simplest. Let us set up your store and you can take sales/donations all year long.
