If you’re organizing a charity walk, 5K, or fun run for a cause you care about, you’ll understandably want to raise all the funds you can. People do feel a real need to give to worthy causes, as is evidenced by the 1.4 billion people who donated money to nonprofits in 2014. But you can easily increase the amount they give by incorporating custom apparel into your event. Below, we’ll discuss a few ways that custom t-shirts, hoodies, and more can help you reach (and even exceed!) your fundraising goals.
Use Custom Apparel to Raise More Money Beforehand
With a fun run or charity walk, participants typically collect pledges to raise money for the cause. But as a supplement to that, you could sell fundraising apparel to participants, volunteers, and others in the community in preparation for the big event. Inkd Apparel can create a custom web store for certain teams or the event itself to raise money. The order together, pay separate feature makes it even easier to get organized. The extra money raised from these custom t-shirts can be added to what participants raise from pledges, ultimately benefitting your cause.
Offer Fundraising T Shirts As Incentive
Many 5Ks will give custom t-shirts or athletic wear to participants for the event. Every participant who raises money can receive custom apparel that’s branded for the cause and the run itself. The amount these participants raise could also determine what type of apparel they get to wear on the day of the race. This can serve as a great incentive for participants to raise as much money as they possibly can prior to the big day.
Sell Fundraising Apparel At the Event
You can also take advantage of additional fundraising opportunities by selling fundraising clothing like shirts, hats, hoodies, and sweats to participants and spectators right at the event itself. This can be a great way for families to cheer on their loved ones, for participants to take home a souvenir, or for people in the community to give to a worthy cause without running the race themselves. Be sure to provide a good selection of items that will appeal to a wide demographic. Since it’s easy and fast to reorder certain items, Inkd will have you covered if you run out during your pre-event fundraising efforts.
