Seven Fundraising Tips
Fundraiser Tip 1: When you commission a
custom design, order additional stock ornaments to go
along with your personalized ornament, expanding your
potential sales opportunities. (For example, everyone
knows someone in our Occupation Series (a policeman,
teacher, postal worker, EMS worker, someone proud of
their nationality (Greek, Irish, Italian, Polish), or
someone who would like a religious ornament (Noah's Ark,
St Michael the Archangel, or the Nativity.)
Fundraiser Tip 2: You don't have to
purchase a custom-designed ornament to have a successful
fundraiser. Save money by purchasing a supply of our
popular Collectible Stock Ornaments from our online
store to sell in your fundraising drive. Everyone loves
the brilliant glitter of our polished silver or gold-plated
ornaments, and you have over 100 to choose from in
Fundraiser Tip 3: Fundraising drives work
best when you get the word out. Create a buzz in your community,
school, church, or organization. Here are some ideas for
spreading the news about your fundraising project:
- Schedule a kick-off party for your fundraiser and notify
the media. During the party, raffle off a custom brass
- Create a flyer announcing your fundraiser and distribute
your flyers through your school system and local community
- Mail your announcement flyers to school alumni and past
members of your organization.
- Arrange to have a community leader make the first
purchase and use this as a photo opportunity for press
- Send press releases to the print, radio, and television
media in your area (include photos when appropriate).
- Create advertising placemats to promote your fundraiser
at community dinners.
- Display examples of your custom brass ornament in stores
and public places.
- Volunteer to speak at meetings, luncheons, and community
service clubs about the fundraiser. Use these opportunities
to show off your custom brass ornament.
Fundraiser Tip 4: Develop a theme for your
custom-designed brass ornament certain to be popular in your
community. While you may be sponsoring a soccer fundraiser,
perhaps you could develop a theme revolving around patriotism,
pride in nationality, conservation, a special building or
location relating to hometown pride, etc. Consider what is
certain to catch the attention of your community.
Fundraiser Tip 5: Take into account the time
of year for your fundraiser. Ornaments are natural Christmas
gifts. Should your personalized brass ornament include a
seasonal theme? Make sure to order early - it takes time
to design the art and get your ornament manufactured.
Fundraiser Tip 6: Consider doubling the cost
when determining a selling price for your ornament. As a
one-of-a-kind keepsake, your unique ornament cannot be found
anywhere else. Customers will expect to pay a premium price and
will want to support your fundraising efforts.
Fundraiser Tip 7: Collect as much
information as you can to make your fundraising effort a
success. For example, visit websites specializing in fundraising
ideas. These can often supplement or bring your fundraiser to
life. We recommend:
Our design process combines original artwork, photography,
and chemical etching to create unique works of art in silver or
gold-plated brass. Manufactured to the most demanding
specifications, our pieces are perfect for commemorative
ornaments, fundraising drives, custom Christmas ornaments,
mascot pieces, and more. We also offer stock ornaments in a
variety of popular themes. Visit our
Ornament Store for a wide
variety of pre-made ornament choices.
