Starting a Booster Club Fundraiser with Zero Funds

If your booster club has no money to buy products for a fundraiser, there’s a simple way to start one with Country Meats even if you have zero funds. Your booster club has the option of setting up an account with Country Meats and opting in for an online fundraiser. This method is a fantastic way to start a fundraiser with no budget. Here’s how it works!

Start a Fundraiser With Zero Funds Using a Country Meats Online Fundraiser 

Country Meats makes it easy to host a fundraiser through our online platform. All you need to do is create an account with us and check the box to opt-in to online fundraising. Once you’re approved, we’ll send you a custom URL for your fundraiser, which your group can email out to friends and family, share across social media to attract new customers, or include in relevant business e-newsletters. 

Your customers buy directly from us, and we ship the order straight to them! All you have to do is promote, promote, promote, then track your profits on the “My Online Fundraising” tab from your account page. Twenty days after your first order, you can request a check and boom! You’ve started a fundraiser with no money.

Promoting Your Country Meats Online Fundraiser for Free

The major upside to launching a Country Meats online fundraiser (other than you can start one with no funds) is that anyone, anywhere who has an internet connection can buy the products and support your cause. Your ability to extend beyond your local community is huge! Plus, people love the delicious taste of our protein-based smoked meat sticks, and we offer 12+ tantalizing flavors to satisfy every craving. They want the yummy snack sticks, and you have a very easy way to get Country Meats smoked meat sticks right to their doors. All you have to do is effective, organized promotion, and people will know how and where to buy and what a great cause they’re supporting.

  • The best way to get the word out far and wide is to leverage the power of social media, and involve as many booster club members and supporters as possible. The more activity on social media for your fundraiser, the more attention it draws. Social media promotion is free, so it’s the perfect way to advertise with no budget. 
  • Another fantastic way to promote your online Country Meats fundraiser is to partner with businesses who will mention your booster club, your cause, and link to your fundraising URL in their blogs, newsletters, and updates. If you have someone in your booster club who has community connections or is great at networking, that person is a wonderful asset for finding people and businesses to promote your fundraiser and link your URL.
  • Finally, you can promote your online Country Meats fundraiser with email blasts to family, friends, and whatever email lists you have that are appropriate for your booster club. Again, if you’re finding creative ways to raise money with no funds, email is highly effective free marketing. 

Country Meats is here to help your booster club raise the money you need to support your cause—even if you have no start up funds or seed money. If you have questions about the online fundraising option, or aren’t sure where to start, we’re happy to help. Call us at 1 (800) 277-8989 or send an email to
