Green Clean Fundraising

Posted Apr 15 2009 11:02pm 2 Comments

This fundraising idea is my own green diddy diddy 

It's an idea that has been used very successfully in fundraising past

It's a grass roots idea in that it fosters community involvement, involves some rallying, some educating and some enrolling

the organization has to really want to create change 

I supply the product, the information and the strategies

I donate the profits to your organization 

Here's the proposal: 

Take your basic all purpose green product

( perhaps this one  might fit the occasion - she says giggling greenly )

offer it to a population as a green fundraiser

a population could be your church, your school, your scouts, your company, your neighborhood

educate why it's cool
why it's green
how it benefits each families home
how it benefits the planet

educate why it's profitable for the organization 

establish a fundraising goal

sell one per family/person at retail pricing 

Let's say the goal is 1000 families.  I will give you $2 /per bottle sold = $2000

Meet your goal by 50% and I will add an additional  $1 per bottle $3 /per bottle ( a little incentive never hurt )

$3000 is a nice bit of green fundraising - in earthy greenness and in green cash!!

Cost per family is approx $ 23.00

11.95 buys 48 gallons of green clean  
plus 9.10 to set each family up ease of dispensing tools  - 3 spray bottles with labels, and squeeze bottle for dripping  

( detail: to make a window solution one needs to add a single drop to 16 oz of water.  Talk about concentrated! )

add a bit of sales tax in there and again it's approximately $23.00 per purchase

meet your fundraising goal 100 % and I will treat your organization to the shipping

product is shipped direct to your organization

This is a 33% immediate return for purchase ( know of any other fundraiser that matches that return? ) It is earth and cause oriented.  While it's a push to purchase, the return in more families cleaning green is very powerful. Easy to see and participate in the results.  The product is undeniably useful. Won't melt in your hands, won't add to the pile of wrapping paper you already have or have you buy anything you don't really need

Pretty cool - huh??

Is this an idea that appeals to you or your organization ? 

If so,  I'd love to help make your green fundraiser a success.

Let's green-a-gize! ( a mother earth-ism for strategize in a greenly kindof way )

P.S. Fellow Green Blogger Anna Hackman posted these  additional green fundraising ideas - and shared them with me -- these are way cool.  Thanks Anna!
