Fundraising with DSATCO products

Looking to raise funds for your organisation?

DSATCO Fundraising is your easiest and most valuable way to raise specially needed funds for your organisation.

DSATCO provides fundraising committees with access to a range of top-selling products for a farm fresh fundraising solution that caters to most consumer gardening needs. Popular products include DSATCO Lupin Mulch, Piggypost and Lawn Maximizer.

Your fundraising committee’s first and most important decision is to work out what to do to raise much-needed funds for your group project. Every so often it’s trouble-free to do what’s been done in the past, in the name of tradition; or because it seems just too hard to do something different.

From our experience, product drives make fundraising easy. But there are so many different products to choose from!

Here at DSATCO we provide exceptional products, great advice and extraordinary service to all of our customers/organisations. All of our specially formulated garden products will lift and rejuvenate your soil and plants, leaving your plants feeling full of life again.

Fundraising tips for a successful fundraiser

Set your fundraising objective

The objective you set for your group should include a financial figure, as well as a tangible element. For example, a group must raise $1,500 to pay for new Netball equipment, as well as travelling costs to the Annual Netball Competition.

Motivation

It is important to maintain close and constant contact with your group members, and to motivate and encourage them constantly. Being a positive role model for the group is also important, not only in terms of how much money you raise, but also in terms of how much time and effort you put into your fundraiser to make it a success.

Approaching family, friends and neighbours

List as many potential donors as you can before you begin approaching people for support. Start with family and friends, and then proceed to your neighbours and other people whom you feel would be interested in your cause.

Approaching a potential supporter

The manner in which a potential donor is approached may determine whether or not a donation will be made. Try this simple but effective approach:

“Hello, my name is ____________, and I’m raising money for ___________. Would you like to support our group by purchasing ___________? Thank you for your kindness, and have a nice day.”

Smile, be polite and most importantly, be enthusiastic about your cause.

Set a deadline to have all money and orders returned

Your campaign should run a maximum length of 1-3 weeks. Keeping the campaign short will keep your participants motivated and on track. Members should collect money when they take the order. Also, it is easier for the campaign organiser to collect ONE cheque from each participant for the entire sum of money collected, rather than several cheques.

Best seller prize

Offer a prize to the individual who raises the most money, or sells the most units.
