How To Run A Thermometer Fundraiser

Dec 12 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.

Running a thermometer fundraiser is the easiest fundraiser you can run for your team, cause, or school. All you need to do is draw or make a thermometer that you can fill as funds start rolling in. The thermometer should be very visible, so if you’re raising money for a school, it should be right at the entrance or in the lunch room. This kind of fundraiser usually works best in conjunction with another fundraiser. For example, if you’re running a baseball tournament, you can have an area with your thermometer prompting your participants to donate more to help you reach your fundraising goals. 


What you’ll need:

You’ll bee a big piece of cardboard to put your thermometer on, and paint so that you can keep updating your thermometer. If you want to get really tech savvy about it, you can design a thermometer online that goes up as funds are donated. If you want to incent your community members, send out an email every week letting your community know how far along you are for your team, cause, or school. 


Bonus cash back with FlipGive:

To make your fundraiser more fun, you can create a FlipGive fundraising campaign page, and encourage your supporters to shop or purchase gift cards in order to reach your fundraising goals. This is a great way to raise money all year round, and keep your team updated on your progress in a visual way!
