Cheap Water Bottles for Fundraisers: Think Beyond Your Budget

Water Bottle FundraisersMany of our nonprofit clients that hold water bottle fundraisers think they want to buy cheap water bottles to resell. After all, getting the most bottles you can for the money makes sense, right? At first glance, it might seem that way. However, this is not usually the way to maximize a return on your investment.

We understand that there is a lot of competition between equally worthy organizations for fundraising dollars. While not all nonprofit demographics will support a $20 per-bottle fundraiser, finding a “sweet spot” between initial cost and return will yield a much more successful fundraiser than you think.

Don’t believe us? Consider these three examples:  Continue reading

Water Bottle Fundraisers: What to Know

kids_for_the_bay3Many of our clients hold water bottle fundraisers for their nonprofit organization, and have great success with promoting their environmental consciousness with their group’s supporters. However, there are a few things you need to know before selecting which bottle you’ll use for water bottle fundraisers.

1. Age of your primary recipients

Focused on adults? If your bottles will be purchased and used primarily by adults (if you’re a church selling water bottles after services, for example), then you can pick and choose from any water bottle on the Bulletin Bottle website.

Targeting teens? If you’re a high school selling water bottles at your football games, you can choose from any water bottle on our site.

Aiming for tweens or children? This is where it gets tricky.
