Are fundraiser cards really an effective way to raise funds? If they don’t help raise funds . . . why use them! It turns out that most My1Stop.com customers who use fundraiser cards are quite passionate about the value and simplicity of their card programs. Here’s a bit of insight that our customers who rely on fundraiser cards have shared with us. Hopefully, these insights will help you start or get more from, a fundraiser card program.
Easy To Set Up
Setting up a plastic fundraiser card program is really easy! Many start with a local school, club or organization reaching out to local merchants. The merchants agree to provide a part of each sale made with the cards back to the organization who issues the cards. Simple software makes tracking easy and accurate. Another approach is to work with just merchants, like a sandwich shop. The fundraiser cards work like coupons, giving the consumer a bit of a discount and the issuing organization a piece of each sale using their cards. Most merchants can track these sales easily with their POS systems!
Few Social Implications
The bake sale is under fire. In NY alone, schools are now prohibited from conducting bake sales because the baked goods sold at the sale supposedly contribute to obesity in school kids. Because of this, many schools looking for an alternative to bake sales are finding fundraiser cards to be a more sociably acceptable way to fill the fundraising gap left when their bake sales were canceled. Fundraiser cards come with a great deal of social acceptability and familiarity!
Many fundraiser card based programs generate upwards of 40 to 50 percent of the sales back to the issuing organization. In these tight times – or really anytime – that’s a great return on the minimal investment required to get a fundraiser card program up and running!
