Why Coffee Fundraisers work and Candy
Fundriasers are on the decline!
If you are going to sell
a product for your fundraising efforts, it only makes sense to provide
something the vast majority of your supporters already desire. Using gourmet
coffee for fundraising is proving to be one of the most successful
fundraising products ever. People are turning away from
cookies, candy bars and the like and choosing coffee. This is true especially for the over 35 age group and those
watching their waistline.
Incredibly, 86% of households in America prepare coffee at home, according to the
National Coffee Association's 2010 National Coffee Drinking Trends industry
report. This is up from 82% in 2009. This is a huge trend.
Also a growing trend is the fact that consumers across the globe want to shop with a conscience. Most say, if
given the opportunity, they would buy a product that has an environmental
benefit (94%) or one that is attached to a cause (93%). And a staggering
number (76% and 65%, respectively) report they have actually done just that
in the past 12 months, according to the Cone Communications/Echo Research
study conducted in 2011.
Your organization's volunteers can offer their friends and family a standard
retail size package of gourmet specialty coffee, at the same price as a fine
grocery store, and keep about half of the proceeds. The customer receives
specialty coffees with your organizations own branded private label applied.
They will be supporting your organization and their kids, friends, students,
nephews or nieces.
