Suggesting a Pledge Drive as a Fundraiser to your Board.
If you think you'd like to have a pledge drive as your school or group fundraiser, you might need to get board approval before proceeding. Here are a few recommendations to help you get your board on board:
First, read through this guide. If you have any unanswered questions, feel free to call PledgeStar at (949) 215-4458. We're happy to help! And, since we have worked so many fundraiser’s with so many schools, we probably have the answer you’re looking for.
Next, find someone you trust to lead the fundraiser, and gain their support. It's a lot easier to get the board to agree to start a pledge drive once someone has volunteered to lead the project.
Get your group's opinion leaders (President, VP, Treasurer and Fundraising Chairperson) excited about the idea. Send them a copy of "Pledge Drives Made Easy" to help explain the benefits. Need a copy of our ebook? It’s on our website or email us at INFO@PLEDGESTAR.COM and we will send you back a copy!
At the beginning, you may encounter concerns or objections from some of your group's members. Hopefully, you will be able to overcome any problems using the information in our ebook. However, if a member raises a concern or objection you don't know how to respond to, you can call PledgeStar at (949) 215- 4458, and we will give you recommendations to help address the issue. Our lines are open seven days a week from 7 AM until 8 PM. We look forward to working with you!
