Expert Fundraising With Personalized Small-Town Service
Based in the Akron-Canton, Ohio area, Diamond Fundraising provides results-driven, expert fundraising services to groups in Northeast Ohio and offers online sales of fundraising candy to the lower 48 states.
Over the past 21 years, our president, Kevin Nisly, has studied both successful and under-performing fundraising efforts and has developed a proven fundraising approach based on his experience. There are four key factors that make or break a sale, all of them start with a P–Product, Promotion, Prizes, and Payment collection.
Groups that follow the advice offered by Diamond Fundraising most often exceed their fundraising goals. Allowing our team to truly understand your goals, environment, and challenges will help us custom tailor a fundraising program for you. Our goal is to make the most out of every fundraising sale, every time!
Whether you are part of a large school group or a small youth sports team, we can help you find the right fundraiser.
