Fundraising Calendar

Trustpilot Ratings

Our Calendar Fundraising Program makes it easy and inexpensive for School and Education, Non-Profit Organizations, Communities, Humane Society, Animal Rescue, Pet Adoption, Animal Organizations, Horses, Dogs and Cats, Dog Clubs, Religious Organizations, Churches, Sports Teams, Fire Departments and Police Departments and more to raise needed funds.

HOW TO CREATE A CALENDAR FUNDRAISER

At PrintingCenterUSA, our purpose here is to give ideas on how to a create a fundraising calendar and help your school or non-profit organization raise money and support your activities.

The majority of these ideas and information for fundraising calendars can be applied to Non-Profits, Educational Institutions, Schools, PTA, Community Organizations, Humane Societies, Animal Organizations, Religious or Church Organizations, Sports Teams, Fire Departments, Police Departments and other fundraising activities. Use as few or as many ideas as you like to inspire your sales team.

Many organizations have had great success in obtaining sponsors to support the upfront cost of printing their calendars before they go to press. Having upfront sponsors also adds extra profits from calendar sales, thus enabling your school or organization to focus on designing and selling your fundraising calendar.

Let Your Imagination Flow
  • What story do I want to tell my audience with pictures? Do I want to highlight my products, services, people who work for me, etc?
  • Look at existing calendars you like, look at pictures you have. Walk around look at your story, talk to fellow employees and form an idea for your calendar. Sit back and look at the story you want to tell and visualize what pictures will tell that story best.
  • Rough out your story: Say you are a manufacturing company and want to show your production facilities and the products you produce or you are a community leader and want to promote your town. What pictures would best tell your story?
  • Grab your digital camera or smart phone and start taking pictures.
  • Need pictures or images why not buy them? You can download great images from online stock photography sites such as Fotolia.com for only a couple of dollars per picture.
PHOTOS
Calendar Photo Ideas:
  • You and your fellow calendar developers can take current digital pictures, gather digital pictures and or have fellow students, associates, etc. collect images that will enhance your program.
  • All you need is a digital camera and a computer. • Take your digital pictures or use existing photos from your desktop, Face Book, friends, etc.
  • You will need 300 dpi pictures. A good resolution for printing photos is 300 dpi (dots per inch). Anything below will print pixelated. Most images displayed on a monitor has a resolution of 72 dpi and 96 dpi, which means it may look great on your screen but will not look great when printed.
Create A Theme with Pictures
  • Showcase a picture or collage of photos on the cover of your fundraiser calendar best describing your subject.
  • Put a picture or collage of photos on the top of each month. For example, September would say, “Welcome Back to School” and showcase the football team or theme of your calendar.
  • Students in campus settings.
  • Pictures of peoples’ favorite animals.
  • People in funny situations or wearing funny clothes.
  • Liven up the month with funny sayings to go with the picture.
  • Places or things that relate to your cause or organization.
  • Events or things that are going on in a featured month.
  • Points of interest, such as people, landmarks, etc. from your school, organization, community, sports team, etc.
  • Photos of firefighters or police officers with their shirts off. We did one with firefighters dressed in drag. It was hilarious.
  • Pictures from previous years’ events.
  • School sports programs and other school events, band, cheerleader, DECA, whatever you feel is necessary for students, teachers, parents, your non-profit and the community during the year.
  • Put reminders in this years’ calendar for people to submit pictures for next years’ calendar contest.

ADVERTISING SALES:

If you choose to sell advertising in your calendar, you can add a nice profit to your bottom line! Advertising can be sold to business’ to cover the cost of the program and make money.

Who Should Sell the Advertising?

The students (teams, clubs, band, cheerleader, DECA, whatever) or members of your non-profit organization are your most powerful selling tool. They are what it is all about and proof that the money from the ad sales is going to a good cause. They can pre-sell the advertising to sponsors thus ensuring an extra profit from the sale of the fundraising calendars.

Don’t Procrastinate

Take time to teach your students or members of your non-profit organization how to sell an ad and make sure they know:

  • What school or non-profit organization they are supporting.
  • What the money will be used for.
  • When calendar distribution begins and ends.
  • Size of ads and what they cost.
  • Where the ad will be placed. And above all spread the enthusiasm to your sponsors, students, parents, families, friends, relatives, colleges, customers, members, contacts and supporters of your school or non-profit organization.

SALES TIPS & REVENUE IDEAS
Ad Sales Tips:
  • Know your estimated distribution.
  • Make sure the sponsor sees how they can benefit from the partnership and convince them that by buying advertising space in your program they’re making a smart marketing decision for their company.
  • The key is to show that advertising in your calendar will benefit all parties involved.
  • Great way to advertise their business.
  • Gain additional exposure to a large, lucrative market (parents, students, relatives, friends, colleagues, customers, members, contacts, and supporters of your school or non-profit organization)
  • The business gets relatively inexpensive advertisement space compared to advertising in a newspaper.
  • It can also get some positive publicity by supporting your school or non-profit organization and the community
Advertising Revenue Ideas:
  • You can sell birthday and anniversary dates, personal/parent ads with pictures of students, daily specials from supporting businesses.
  • Ask local businesses for help with funds in return for free product placement within the calendar
  • Sell dates within each month, for example, a local ice cream shop could buy the date that it opens up for the summer season, ensuring customers know when they resume operation.
  • Ads can be sold to sponsor an individual page at different price levels and some pages.
  • Have smaller ads running down one side or on the bottom of the page
  • Sponsoring a single month or several months or all monyhs.
  • Some schools or non-profit organizations sell the date of a persons’ anniversary or birthday for $5 and place a picture of the individual on that date.
  • Advertisers could put coupons and specials on their ads to entice them to buy their products or services.
  • Personal/Parent-Member ads are a great way to gather support and enthusiasm from the community for your calendar or program. Ads of funny, baby and candid pictures of the student or members are purchased by the families and friends to show support, best wishes and poke fun at the student or member and gather enthusiasm for your team, school or organization.
  • Keep a record of past sponsors to contact for next years’ calendar.
  • Nothing will beat taking the time to call on your local business personally. Combine the information from the telephone and direct mail samples for your personal sales calls.
GOOD LUCK!

I've placed orders for calendars for five years with Printing Center USA and been very happy with the quality, service, cost and fast shipping, especially by taking advantage of the discounts for early ordering before the holidays. As a professional photographer, it's important that re-printing is true to my original submissions, and Printing Center USA always nails it perfectly! I can't give 5 Stars because this year Printing Center replaced the user-friendly template to build my own calendar with a template that is not user friendly. It doesn't offer borders, has limited background choices and no design tool to choose the number of photos for the cover. The previous template was so much more efficient and took much less of my time to build my calendar. Please bring it back.

Never disappointed! I have been buying calendars for 7-8 years now. I used to request a hard copy preview, but I trust you so much that I really don't even need an electronic preview anymore. As long as I submit my best work, I have no worries that you will provide me with a great product.
