Michigan 4-H Fundraiser Flyer Checklist

A fundraiser flyer checklist for 4-H groups.

Your 4-H group has decided to raise money. Follow this checklist to ensure your flyer, promotion and marketing meet Michigan 4-H guidelines.

Be certain to submit to your 4-H program coordinator:

  • Fundraiser application (at least 10 business days  prior)
  • Fundraiser report (within 10 business days of completion)

Your fundraiser flyer must include:

  • Your 4-H club or group name
  • What type of fundraiser you are holding (car wash, bake sale, etc.)
  • Where it will take place (include complete address)
  • When it will happen (dates and times)
  • How will the funds be used; why are you raising money (be as specific as possible, including funds raised beyond the proposed budget)?
  • Will the club be using the PROFITS or PROCEEDS of the fundraiser for advertised purpose?
  • 4-H Clover logo
  • MSU Extension logo
  • MSU Extension indicia (see wording below)
  • Does your fundraiser require payment of sales tax? If yes, is sales tax included in the price (e.g., food booth) or is there a fundraising vendor (e.g., candle company) responsible for paying it?
  • Contact information (be cautious of listing contact information publically, especially for youth)

Find more information about 4-H financial procedures, see Financial Manual for 4-H Treasurers.
