Successful FundRaisers

Successful fundraisers generally have a wide gap between the production costs and revenue, and unsuccessful fundraisers have a small gap or no gap. The main purpose of a fundraiser is usually to raise as much money as possible.

Costs are kept low by using one or more of these techniques:

  • Charging inflated prices for products (usually: goods, services, entertainment, or affiliation).
  • Charging competitive prices for products that are secured at low-cost or no-cost.
  • Encouraging individuals or corporations to give money without receiving anything material in return.
