6 Tips How-to run a successful fundraising campaign selling custom T-shirts


Running a fundraising campaign is a unique challenge. It requires you to get donors excited about your cause, and then turn those donors into donors again and again. One of the best ways to do this is to offer donors a unique, custom experience. For example, you can sell a custom t-shirt to a donor in exchange for a donation.

Running a campaign that involves selling a custom t-shirt design is also a great way to boost the branding of your organization. A nicely designed custom t-shirt is a great way to stand out from others and help to fundraise more money. On the other hand, a standard t-shirt will not raise as much money, but it will still help build a name for the organization.

Running a fundraising campaign can be stressful and overwhelming, especially if you’re new to the game. After much research, we have put together a list of important things that MUST be on your checklist in order to have a successful one.

1) Have a clear objective of the campaign

The first step is to have a clear objective in mind. This objective will be the basis of the whole fundraising campaign and will help you to measure the success of the whole campaign. You need to clearly define the type of funds that you want to raise for the campaign, the size and the location of the target audience, and the amount that you want to raise. This will help you to narrow down the scope of the whole campaign and will also help to build the brand image of the organization.

2) A clear message that you want to send out to the public.

This is the headline that you want people to remember when they hear about your campaign. It should be short and to the point, without being misleading. It should also be something that you can repeat over and over again until people start to get used to it. For example, if you’re running a campaign to feed the homeless, your message could be “Donate Now to Feed the Homeless”.

3) Design of the T-shirt

The design of the t-shirt is one of the most important parts of the whole campaign. It is the first thing that people will see when they visit your fundraising page, and it will also be the first thing that people will remember from the whole campaign. The design of the t-shirt should be simple yet eye-catching, and it should also reflect the message that you want to send out to the public. How do you know if your t-shirt is well designed? When the donors like the design and they are willing to wear the t-shirts over and over again.

4) Find the right t-shirt printing company

Finding the right t-shirt printing company for your fundraiser can be a difficult task. There are so many out there that claim to offer the best t-shirt printing service. It can be difficult to separate the good ones from the bad ones. That’s why it’s important to do your due diligence and find a reputable company that can provide you with great service.

5) How to advertise the campaign?

Advertisements in newspapers, online blogs, radio and TV stations, and social media channels are the most common ways to advertise a fundraising campaign. It all depends on your budget and the size of your target audience. The key is spending the least amount of money to get maximum exposure.

6) How can people place the t-shirt order and point of collection?

The collection of the t-shirts can be done in a number of ways. The most common way is for people to order their t-shirt through your fundraising website. They will then receive an email notifying them that their t-shirt is ready for collection. They can then come and collect their t-shirt from your physical collection point, or they can have the t-shirt delivered to their doorstep if they are willing to pay a small postage fee.


Now that you have a good idea of what goes into designing a successful t-shirt fundraiser, it’s time to talk about the conclusion. When designing a t-shirt fundraiser, the most important thing is to have a clear objective in mind. This will help you to stay focused and will also help you to stay determined. Once you have a clear idea of what you want to achieve, it’s time to get to work.
