Fundraising events can be incredibly successful, but so, too, can a straightforward fundraising sale. Be it books, calendars or art, organizing a charity sale can be the perfect addition to your online crowdfunding efforts. Sales are sometimes a less-stressful alternative for nonprofits that don't have a huge staff prepared to take on the planning of a major fundraising gala. Instead, a sale is a focused but steady fundraiser that can last as long as necessary for your team. Brainstorm possible items that would appeal to your donor base, and make sure to reach out to businesses in the area that might be willing to offer donated goods for the sale.
