How do I determine a fundraising goal?

Setting and meeting fundraising goals can be complex. So, we simplified the process for you.

Be specific – Your goal should address a particular performance area.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • What are you hoping to achieve with your fundraising?
  • What is your overall goal?
  • Who will benefit from your fundraising campaign?
    • Example – "We’re hoping to raise $10,000 to support the school renovation.”

Make it measurable – The goal should be measurable, not subjective and general.

Setting measurable fundraising goals has many benefits. It helps motivate volunteers, enhances clarity, encourages supporters to give, and paints a clearer picture of where you're at. This is incredibly helpful for all organizations – big or small.

Attainable – The goal should be ambitious but within the realm of possibility.

To understand what's achievable and feasible for your Campaign, consider:

  • the success of your previous fundraising campaigns.
  • the average number of supporters.
  • the time you can commit to the Campaign.
  • other resources you have available (e.g., employees, volunteers).

Relevant – The goal should be connected to the overall mission and vision of your organization. Get very clear and specific on campaign’s relevance before starting a campaign. This also helps you establish the "why", and when there's a "why", everything will flow more smoothly.

Time-Based – The goal should have a deadline. Every successful fundraising campaign should have a beginning and an end. A fundraiser that runs between 2 to 4 weeks has great potential to reach its goals and maintain enthusiasm.

The fundraising guidelines above can help you achieve maximum profit for your fundraiser. For example: If you have 20 supporters whose individual orders comes to $50, this would be $1,000 in sales which earns you $250 in profit.

How do I get the most out of my fundraising campaign?

Our job is to help you raise as much as possible for your cause. If you are a coordinator responsible for promoting your campaign, the key to success is to ask as many people as possible to support you. You can do this by sharing your unique campaign link from the dashboard with ALL your supporters.

It is essential to always include this link whenever you communicate with your supporters. It takes them to the registration page where they can join your campaign and shop for their favourite chocolates.

Every time you communicate with your supporters, share your unique campaign link to get the most sign ups and profits towards your fundraiser.

Promote your link on social media to get more exposure. Send it to your groups on Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, or any other social media platform you use. Don't forget to email your contacts or add your fundraising campaign link on your social media page


How long should I run my fundraising campaign for?

The length of a campaign will depend on your goals and motivation.

An effective fundraiser that runs for 2 to 4 weeks can reach its goals and maintain enthusiasm. However, shorter campaigns that run for 1 week can also be effective for raising short term goals.

It is important to have a specific start date and end date for your fundraiser to help track records and to keep the excitement high. The Purdys Christmas Fundraising site will launch on Tuesday, Sept 7th for purchases and will close on Tuesday, November 30th.


How do I earn the maximum amount of profit?

You only need to sell $1,000 (before taxes & shipping charges) as a team to earn 25% fundraising profit. That is only 20 supporters spending $50 or more.
