Stock Certificates

This fundraiser is simple and work free. It is also great for mission trips or retreats. Create the “Stock Certificates” to put in your church’s Sunday bulletin. Start by stating why you are fundraising (for those clueless or whatever). The certificates also should include something like “Thank you for taking stock in our youth. As a stock holder, you are entitled to a personal letter from one of our youth.” Also include a place to put the stock holder’s address. Then give instructions to give to a certain person or to put it in your church’s offering with donated money. Remember that it is a good idea to accept any amount of donation instead of one set amount. Then while on the trip, have a youth write a letter to the stock holder thanking them for sponsoring them and telling them a little bit about the trip. The stock holders especially love getting mail!!
