It’s that time of year again. School’s out and now it’s time for summer fundraising.
If you need some great summer fundraising ideas check out this article!
Summer can be a great time to raise money because you are not competing with schools that do their fundraising during the school year.
Choosing summer fundraising ideas should be done in either May or June because some fundraisers require a minimum of 4-6 weeks to prepare for. For instance the very popular and profitable discount card fundraiser takes 4-6 weeks to put together. You will need to fill out the merchant wish list and then fax it back to 323-667-0065. Once ABC Fundraising® receives your local merchant wish list they will begin preparing the discount card for your summer fundraising event. In some cases your summer fundraising discount card can be completed in 3-4 weeks time. However it is essential to leave enough time before your summer fundraiser begins to allow ABC Fundraising® to secure your local merchants.
Keep in mind that not all merchants will want to participate. That’s why we call it a “wish list” You can circle 40 different suggested merchants which include places like Subway, Sonic Burger, Pizza Hut and others. To make your summer fundraising event more successfull you will need to fill in 20 “local merchants”. These local merchants are the best way to ensure your summer fundraising with the discount card is successful. When you go to sell your card, people want to see familiar local stores and not just chain restaurants like Pizza Hut, Subway or Burger King and MacDonalds.
Once ABC Fundraising® has secured all the local merchants for your summer fundraising discount card fundraiser you will be emailed a proof of the card for your review. Please be sure to approve the card as quickly as possible so you can begin your summer fundraising program without delays. Once you approve the card you should receive them within 2 weeks. Sometimes it is possible to get the cards to you within 1 week.
Summer Fundraising with the discount card fundraiser should last about 2 weeks. You really shouldn’t go much longer than that.
Some groups that have used the discount card fundraiser for their summer fundraising include: Church Groups, summer Church Youth Programs, Summer Camps, Summer football and summer baseball leagues, summer school programs, summer swim teams and summer dance teams have all used the discount card fundraiser for their summer fundraising event.
Another great summer fundraising idea is the well known Scratch & Help Scratch Card Fundraiser. This fundraiser was developed in 1993 and has helped groups raise millions of dollars and can help your group earn thousands this summer. It’s so fast and easy!
You wont need to wait 4-6 weeks to get your scratch cards. In fact the Scratch and Help Summer fundraising program can begin within days of ordering your cards.
