The Pressures of a Lions Club Fundraiser

Pressure of fundraising

For organizing your first Lions Club fundraiser, there’s a lot of pressure on you.

Sure, there will be older, more experienced people there to help you out and guide you if need be, but you’re still the main organizer, and you are probably acutely aware that the chief responsibility falls on your shoulders. This can be a lot to deal with for a first-timer, especially if the stakes are high, and you may not know how to deal with the unexpected psychological pressure that running a Lions Club fundraiser can bring.

The first thing to remember is even though you’re in charge, you’re most certainly not alone. The Lions Club is known for its mutual support of members, and at every turn, you’ll be able to consult someone who has been there before and seen it all. That should be at least some comfort, and it also helps on a personal level to know that when the going gets tough mentally, you can have someone to turn to, someone who will empathize with what you’re going through in your Lions Club fundraiser.

The other thing to keep in mind is that we’re also here to help. We have a wealth of fundraising expertise for all kinds of groups, of all sizes, with all kinds of monetary goals.

So no matter what kind of Lions Club Fundraiser you’re thinking about running, we can match you up with something that is as close to your ideal as possible, if not exactly the same.

We can point you in the right direction with products and activities that will suit your group and its targets, and if you have any questions along the way, you can always check in with your fundraising consultant, who can help you with any advice you’d like to have.
