Printers can put the ‘fun’ in fundraising (2018/12/18)

For many not-for-profit organizations, fundraising is a fact of life. There are many options to choose from when it comes to this type of event, and whether the one selected is traditional or completely outside the box, print companies will be able to help.

An informal event, such as a carnival or activity day, can be a great option, especially if for a school or organization that works with children and families. These tend to attract a large crowd, and a professional flyer printing company can prepare a variety of promotional materials to make sure it is well advertised throughout the community.

There are many activities that can be included in a carnival, and they don't need to be complicated. Little ones love face painting, crafts and games where they can win a simple prize, and in many cases, the items used for these can be provided by the organizers. Larger items, like bounce houses, petting zoos, and dunk tanks, can be rented at a minimal cost, and a printing company can even use large format print technology to create backdrops for a “selfie station”.

Having the right documents on hand can be another way to make organizing a fundraiser a snap. Stationery printers can craft letterheads, order and waver forms, and certificates of thanks to give to the volunteers who lent a hand to ensure the occasion was fun for everyone who came out.

Planning a family day, carnival or other event may sound complicated, but it doesn't have to be. With a little bit of hard work and help from a print company, such days can often prove to be a big success.
