Featured Segment

On our second segment on successful fundraisers, I want to focus on 2 ways to have a successful fundraiser right away. Rather than re-inventing the wheel, it may be better to follow these 2 suggestions and nearly guarantee a successful fundraiser!

  • Fundraising Rule #1
    Partner with an existing event that will allow you to provide the entertainment, food, or a service at the event. An example of this is the St. Croix Falls Rotary Club, who is the main Beer vendor at the Wannigan Days Festival in St. Croix Falls.
  • Fundraising Rule #2
    Get a big name to headline your event. This may cost you some money up-front, but if the Return on Investment is greater than the cost, you’ll make money. An example of this is the St. Croix Falls Rotary Club, who partnered with the Festival Theatre to provide Beer and Wine sales for a Comedy special with Louie Anderson.

Listen to the interview with legendary comedian Louie Anderson.
