Set a Goal.
It will probably be more successful if you set a church-wide goal – either a dollar amount or a certain number of participants.
Put posters in high traffic areas of your church to publicize the project. Use the theme of the project to decorate and promote the project as well. Provide sign up sheets for classes and mission groups.
Start with a Bang!
Sometimes, a kick-off event, like a party or a meal, is another good way to publicize a project.
Spread the Word.
Encourage Sunday school teachers to tell their students about the fundraisers so that they can encourage their parents to participate.
Enlist the Pastor.
Remember that the pulpit is the most powerful place of promotion, so ask the pastor to encourage participation.
