Determine the Financial Need


What do you hope to achieve with your campaign? How much money do you want to raise for your worthy cause? Put some thought into what you would like to accomplish as you plan your campaign and set a fundraising goal.

If you can think of a specific item that your worthy cause needs, that’s great! Attaching your story to a concrete need will help establish your goal and can also inspire your donors. Explaining how any extra funds would be used can be a real plus. Here’s just one example: “The first $1000 pays for 10 service dog vests for Canine Companions for Independence® and any additional funds will be used for dog food.”  If you don’t have a concrete need, explain to the audience exactly where the money raised will be put to use.

We encourage and support you to raise as much money as you need, but remember, we do have a 75 minimum garment sale goal.  In order for us to give back the largest amount of money to your cause and pay our bills along with our team salaries,  a 75 minimum goal is the magic number.  We have to take a lot of ‘stuff’ into consideration such as garment costs and minimums, printing costs and minimums, and the cost and time and it takes for our artists to create your designs.  So be positive, spread the word and reach a campaign goal of at least 75 garments!
