By Kay Green,
Plan A - Send a package with flyers for an organization to collect orders. Offer them a percentage of your profits when they collect over $100 in orders.
IPlan B - Demonstration for an Organization
Set up a table with a display and notebook. Do a presentation of all the products and their features and benefits. Do a door prize draw to get lead slips. Then collect the orders or sell on the spot. Then I would deliver the rest of the orders 2 weeks later.
I wanted to mention that sometimes your smaller groups have the BEST Fundraisers so don't over look them! I make up a Fundraiser Info Pack and include 2 flyers, a printed out worksheet that gives them examples of how much their group can earn, a sheet that explains how our Fundraiser Works, any incentives or specials you may offering, contact info for you and so forth.
Here are some suggestions on groups who hold fundraisers so make a list and start contacting them!
#1) Cub Scouts
#2) Girl Scouts
#3) 4-H Clubs
#4) Gymnastic Centers & Clubs

#8) Independent Cheerleading Centers & Clubs
#9) Local Athletic Associations
#10) Local Daycare Centers
#11) In-Home Daycare Centers
#12) Local Medical Orgs. i.e.. red cross, united way etc but your best bet is to contact your local chapters of these Major Organizations.
#13) Oncology Doctor Offices or Centers, a lot of Oncologists Offices (Cancer) Due fundraisers to help with research & a cure on Cancer. In our local area they hold fundraisers, yard sales, bake sales, cookbook drives etc...so don't forget about them!

#40) Local or Township Community Centers
There are a lot of places to contact about the type of fundraising opportunities that you offer! I tell my consultants to make a list and then set a reasonable goal for themselves. I recommend making 5 fundraising contacts per month. You can do this by sending a packet of your info to the group, by making a phone call or by personally dropping off the packet of info.
