How To Run A Popcorn Sale

Nov 20 2017

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

A popcorn sale is a great way to raise money for your team, cause, or school. Popcorn sales can be really simple to put on, and this kind of fundraiser can be run in partnership with a specialty store, or you and a team of volunteers can make the popcorn for your fundraiser yourself. 


How to run your fundraiser:

If you’re going to be selling fresh popcorn for your fundraiser, you’re going to need to rent or borrow a popcorn maker for the duration of your fundraiser. Contact local businesses in your area and tell them about your fundraising event and see if they would be willing to donate their popcorn maker. If you’re going to be purchasing popcorn that’s already made, you have the benefit of being able to provide different kinds of popcorn for your supporters. The timing of your fundraising campaign is important. If you’re running your fundraiser for an athletic team, a popcorn sale fundraiser is a great idea for during games. 

If your fundraiser is for a school or community cause, have your popcorn sale at another event, like the school talent show or a community gathering. Decide how long you’re going to run your fundraiser, and make sure that you have enough volunteers to help you with your fundraising event. 


Extras for your fundraiser:

If you really want to get festive, get bags for your popcorn made that have a logo or a sticker that pertains to the cause you’re raising money for. If you have an online platform like FlipGive where people can donate, you can have all of that information on your popcorn bags. 


Bonus cash back for your fundraiser:

Purchase items for your fundraising campaign through a FlipGive fundraising page, and you could earn up to 25% cash back on items for your fundraiser.
