Book Fair Fundraiser
Description: Event-style fundraiser, primarily with children’s books. Works even better if you add in books appealing to adults either through direct availability (best) or catalog order. Can be turnkey hosted.
Best Suited For: Schools
Prospective Customers: Families
Comments: As with any event, promotion is the key. Work with local bookstores for supplemental offering & discount coupons. Add a supplemental offering for incremental revenue (do that any time you have an event). Watch for shrinkage.
Feel Good Rating: Four stars
