What should you include in each seller's packet to really SUPERCHARGE your fundraiser? Here's a quick checklist:

 √ BRIEF ELEVATOR PITCH

This should quickly explain what is being sold, who it benefits and why someone should buy it.

EXAMPLE

Chinook Book is an earth-friendly coupon book for sustainable living in (name of your city). They offer an annual print book as well as a great mobile app for iPhone and Android. • With nearly 600 coupons to cool local businesses like (pick your three favorite/most exciting merchants!), there is something in it for everyone! Most people only have to use 2-3 coupons to make up for the $(dollar amount) purchase cost. • If you buy Chinook Book through us, we’ll keep half the proceeds!

√ ENVELOPE FOR COLLECTING MONEY & FORMS  

Make sure the envelope features your order deadline and each seller’s individual fundraising goal.

√ORDER FORMS

Bonus Points: Include a sample completed order form to help sellers answer questions about what goes where.

√ SAMPLES OF THE PRODUCT

This is super important! Send a sample home with each family to help them really SHOW the value. This more than any other tactic will improve your fundraising results.
 

√ FAQ

Answer commonly asked questions about the product and give your sellers good ideas for overcoming common objections.
 

√ GOALS AND REWARDS INFO SHEET

Include the seller’s individual goal, overall fundraising goal and a description of the incentives & rewards each individual (and team) can earn.
 

√ POSTERS AND POSTCARDS

Encourage your sellers to hang posters and hand out fliers in their favorite neighborhood hangouts (with permission of the business owner). Many hands make light poster work!

BONUS POINTS

Prep a digital version of your toolkit!

Make sure all forms, checklists & cheat sheets can also be emailed out and/or downloaded from a convenient website. Not everyone is free to attend a meeting or kickoff event, so make it easy for them to start selling even if you never meet them face to face.
