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 service at the event. An example of this is the St. Croix Falls Rotary Club, which 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.

If you would like to get tickets to Louie’s show, please check out the links below.  We would love to see you here in St. Croix Falls.

If your Rotary Club has a fundraising idea or a successful fundraiser you’d like to share or if you would like to use Rotary Club Radio as a way to promote your fundraiser to District 5960 and all the listeners around the world, go to and click “Submit a Story” to tell us about it.
