My question is can you do a Fundraiser for another Non-Profit Organization in May? Meaning, sell the HWC items and PC items but put the show through as a Fundraiser instead of a Cooking or Catalog Show? I'm new to PC and the Organization I'm dealing with is interested in May because they can end their fundraiser at an Open House they have set up already for Memorial Day weekend. I just wasn't sure if every Fundraiser submitted for the month of May was designated as going to the American Cancer Society. I hope my question makes sense...
Thanks!

I spoke to customer support last week on this very issue and they said yes you can. They encourage it, and while it seems like double payment they will still donate 1 dollar for each HWC item and pay 15% on both HWC and the regular items to the organization. They also commented that many consultants pick May due to the HWC items, plus your fundraising organization will be helping others and not just themselves. Sounds like a win win situation to me.

I sent an e-mail to HO asking if 15% of the HWC products gets donated to the charity (my friend is going to do a local hospice in May). I was told it only included guest sales besides the HWC products.

Now someone asked HO and they said 15% of the HWC does go to the charity, which answer is right?

I spoke to support again last Friday and told them we had conflicting info, they looked it up and said the following. If the HWC items are a guest order during a fundraiser held the month of May, (they are the guest special the month of MAY) then the organization will get 15% of all sales. Example I gave them and they confirmed: If the show sales are 1,000.00 with 100 HWC items on guest orders the show would be as follows... 150.00 to organ.. 150.00 to commission and 100.00 to American Cancer Soc.($1 per each item). They said if anyone had ?s they could call. She did repeat that they had to be guest order.
Hope this clarifies it some,
Joyce
