Green Fundraising

Green Fundraising for Fall 2010

We thought we'd answer some common questions about green fundraisers for you. rv

1. How much will my school earn with your eco-friendly fundraising program? Much of that answer depends on yoru PTA/PTO. It is very important that your PTA/PTO board advertise for your green fundraiser consistently. We can supply you email templates and signage per your request. We like to take as much of the work out of it for you that we can, so we have created these tools to assist in your advertising efforts.

2. The products are more expensive than fundraisers our school has done in the past. Will that hurt our sales?

The answer is no. Once your supporters understand that you are asking them to purchase QUALITY products that will last for years to come, they will be on-board for supporting your fundraiser. Generally, as the old saying goes..'you get what you pay for." That holds true for fundraisers, too. We make every effort to limit our products to those that are fun and practical, but mostly practical. We include things you will use again and again, and then fall in love with and wish you had bought more during the fundraiser!

3. Could you send us out a catalog sample of your green fundraisers?

In the interest of not generating excess paper waste, we have implemented a new policy asking schools and non-profits interested in our eco-friendly fundraisers to either send an email requesting a digital copy of a sample catalog or to download it from our website.
