Balancing the books while ensuring that your organization adequately serves its purpose for the greater good is one of the most common challenges that every non-profit organization faces, primarily due to the lack of steady revenue streams. Every non-profit organization relies on sponsors or fundraising for revenue and in majority cases, the latter is more effective than the former.
There’s no doubt that fundraising plays a vital role in enabling non-profit organizations to successfully continue their operations, be it a school sports program or the local wildlife conservation society. Although fundraising can help organizations generate a significant amount of revenue, pulling off a successful fundraiser is not easy. That’s where Club Fundraising comes into play.
As the name suggests Club Fundraising is a family-owned business in Australia that offers simple and effective way of raising funds to non-profit organizations. Founded at the beginning of 2020, the venture aims “to create partnerships with local clubs and organizations to build a stronger community”. Club Fundraising specializes in providing unique scratch-off cards designed to offer a viable fundraising solution to ‘declared community or charitable organizations’ and help them generate maximum so they can effectively serve their purpose while staying afloat.
Here’s how Club Fundraising works
The venture designs scratch-off cards that have 40 different sections with 40 team names printed on it along with a section where you can write about who/what you are raising the funds for and a unique scratch-off panel with the winning team’s name. The purchase cost of each team and the winning prize is also mentioned on the card. The club members can sell individual teams for the cost mentioned to their family, friends, etc.
Once all the teams are sold out, the unique scratch-off panel can be scratched to reveal the winning team. The person who has bought the winning team wins the prize, which is equivalent to half of the revenue generated. The other half is meant for the club/organization you are fundraising for.
What makes Club Fundraising stand apart from other traditional fundraising options is that it offers a very effective and affordable way of raising funds. Usually, clubs and organizations rely on events like small galas and other similar stuff to raise funds, and such events are costly and difficult to pull off successfully. In the exact words of Club Fundraising’s founder, “the biggest issue with these events is that organizations have to invest a substantial amount of money and the return is entirely dependent on the number of participants, which makes it a risky option. If enough people don’t show up, the club will have to bear a loss instead of generating revenue”.
With Club Fundraising, clubs don’t have to face this issue. Club owners have to make a small investment only by buying the super affordable scratch-off cards, and in return, they can generate a substantial amount of revenue. Moreover, the cards also offer a fun activity for those who buy the team. As the founder of Club Fundraising would put it, “it’s a win-win situation for all”.
Non-profit organizations are a vital part of every community and to stay afloat, these organizations need innovative ways to raise funds to continue their operations. Club Fundraising is helping them do just that. Through its simple and effective scratch-off fundraising cards, the business is not only helping local clubs and organizations stay afloat effortlessly but it’s also strengthening communities and making them a better place to live for all.
