  • Fundraising!

    Our post is trying to think of ways to make more money so we can go to competitions, have better equipment, and have better uniforms, etc...

    What things have you all done?

    Do raffles at carnivals, offer security service for a fee, plan a car wash or other community event. Food drive with donation box, get creative.

      We do all the aluminum cans at our precinct and do events that give good donations. Ask Walmart they give out thousands of dollars and have helped sponser alot of our gear. Right now most of the Explorer post in Washington our selling $10.00 flashlights with department logos on them to deputies and whoever, to make money as a fundraiser. From what I hear it brings in alot of money.

        If you are at a bigger department have a BBQ for officers and city employees. Stores will usually donate the food (Make sure it approved by the brass), and charge city employees for lunch. Everything you make will be profit.

        Also see the fundraising conversation I had with "LTPolicecadet07" on page three of the "Wearing Bullet Proof Vests" Forum

          We (in conjunction with another post) are thinking about doing a seminar for other posts. You guys could do a demonstration at a fair (traffic stops, building search, etc.).

          Thoses are just a few ideas.

              Coca-cola fundraiser

              One thing that my unit does in another program is sell cases of 24oz. bottles of Coke products. It is an easy way to make money. If you are interested just tell your advisors about it and have them contact your local Coca-cola office (if you live in a kinda sorta big city). It is an easy way to make at least a couple hundred dollars if not a little more.

                    Christmas Ornaments with your Explorer Post's logo.

                    They are a big hit down in Morgan Hill.
