2. Set Your Overall Goal - Then Chop It Up!
Determine the total amount you need to raise through your fundraiser - ideally, make this one of the first steps you take before fundraising. Add in the estimated cost of the fundraiser to net your total budget goal (this includes cost of incentives, advertising, food, online donation software, etc.). Having a set goal makes the process of budgeting much more achievable!
3. Create Individual Student Donation Goals
Determine the amount each student will need to raise to meet your overall budget goal. To do this, simply divide your fundraising goal by the number of enrolled students.
- Example: $15,000.00 / 500 students = $30.00 per student pledge goal.
- Add $10-$20 to the student donation goal as a cushion to account for those who do not participate on a monetary level, as well as to offset the additional costs of your fundraiser.
