Do you want to raise some money for a group or charity using a fundraising calendar? There are some very basic, yet, extremely valuable steps you can use to make your calendar stand out and sell much greater. Follow the simple steps outlined in this article and you will be well on your way to fundraising success.

1. You Must Define Your Cause

You should try to keep the pictures on the calendar pertinent to the main cause of the charity or group you are raising funds for. You would not want to just sell fundraising calendars with no identity to the group by which you are trying to help. If you want to stay generic then the best sellers are always cute little animals like; Puppies, Kittens, Bunnies, etc. Or you may want to try pictures of children in cute settings and festive outfits.

2. Make a Deal with the Calendar Printers

Although, there are many companies who are in the business of printing up fundraising calendars you may find a local printing company who believes in your cause enough to give a substantial break in printing cost. The reason most people are unaware of this is because they do not ask. The trick is not to come right out and ask for a discount at first, but rather to promote your cause to them and try to win their sympathy’s. It can’t hurt to check around and see if a fundraising calendar printing company shares your concern and will help out.

3. Black and White Can Be Unique

When you think of fundraising calendars you immediately think of color pictures and fun calendars. Why not change that look up a bit. Try experimenting with some ideas for a black and white calendar. Maybe you could give it an old fashioned look. It just might be that different look that makes your fundraising calendar stand above the crowd.
