Short-Term Fundraising Goals

If you're doing a fundraiser with a short term goal there are an infinite number of products that can help get you profits in a hurry. Some of the most popular are:

Cookie dough---lots of different companies
Popcorn
Magazines
Candles
Flower bulbs
Pizza
Scratch tickets
Calendars


Some products you will be asked to pay for upfront and others you can collect all the funds and then pay. Companies vary so do shop around.

These items are best sold in a two week period. Anything longer and the group may lose their sense of 'urgency' and anything less and they may fall short of their $$$$ goal amount.

So what types of groups benefit the most from this type of fundraising?

Schools
Church groups
Youth groups
Little league
Scout groups
