How does 2nd Chance Program help organizations raise money by working events?
Organizations raise funds by tapping into their volunteer base. Many people may not have the money to give, but would willingly volunteer their time at a fund raiser. This is a similar concept to a bake sale or a car wash, but is more beneficial financially. The amount of money a group can generate depends on both the number of volunteers your organization sends and the client needs. The actual donation to your organization comes from us, is based on an hourly rate per volunteer, and is written out to the organization. No individuals receive compensation. Below are a few examples:
* A group of 25 volunteers could make as much as $200.00 per hour. If that group worked a 10 hour day, the organization could make $2,000.00 for the day. At this rate, a group could potentially generate around $6,000.00 in a weekend!
* In the past, we’ve worked with a couple of state fairs on a two week contract, and the groups were able to raise up to $1,000.00 per volunteer. In this situation, a group of 20 people could translate into $20.000!
* Most of the concession companies we work with give an average of 10% of the gross sales of each stand.
Is there a minimum or maximum number of volunteers required to be considered for an event?
We work with multiple teams at most events, some comprised of just a few volunteers, while others have 50 or more. We’ve actually placed hundreds of people at some of our bigger events. All in all, no matter the size of your group, if you’re interested, we can probably place you on an event site to do your fundraising.
