Fundraiser Phone call in 2 1/2 hours

I need help for some reason I still feel really rocky on the specifics of the Fundraiser stuff. I have a phone call coming in a couple hours to discuss a fundraiser and I'm nervous that I don't have all the answers. I understand the percentages but what about the Host benefits. So if the parents is technically the "host" for the show even though it's a fundraiser does she get the host rewards?

The fundraiser if for a 14 year old girl trying to raise funds to get to Australia for a volleyball training camp that she was personally invited to. I'm going to be talking to her and her Step Mom today to answer any of there questions and hopefully set up a face to face meeting to go over more information but I want to be prepared for questions if they ask me today.

I appreciate your help!

no host rewards other than Guest special and discount after the fact. The host is getting "reward" for their charity. Suggestions for your situation:

1. download some batter bowl recipies from consultant corner
-Homemade for the Holidays last year or
-all the way down at the bottom on Theme Show Recipe Archives is an awesome
holiday series called gifts to go or such. I love the Friendship Brownies, but all the
recipes are good.
2. setup the appointment and bring a batter bowl; possibly one filled with one of the above mixes.
3. you can purchase the batter bowls ahead, and have the fundraisee and a couple friends makeup bowls to sell - $20 or easily $25 each, filled and the receipient keeps the bowl. You can add a mini serving spatula tied to the handle and put on a bow (see the PDF on consultant's corner) and charge $25-30 easily.
4. have her do a massive catalog show.
5. have all orders due at a concluding mini demo event - maybe make a chocolate recipe
6. offer some of your commission?

Thanks Scott!

I really like the batter bowl idea, and I would totally do it but I'm still pretty new and I don't have the money to front to pre purchase the batter bowls. I had talked to my Director about doing a cooking show as long as she can get about 30 or more people to attend and then let her continue getting orders door to door or via people who couldn't attend. But I'm keeping the batter bowl idea for the future!

The one question I have is who is HO going to write the fundraiser check out to? I thought it can't be to an individual.

HO can write a check to any organization, to "Australia Bound Teens" or whatever the outfit is. It can be a direct payment to the travel company, baseball league, dance studio, whatever.

OH...I hadn't thought about that my director said as long as they had an "account" set up for her the money could just be deposited into it. Is this wrong?

Yes, Kelly. It needs to be an organization's name. Perhaps the bank will accept donations in the girls name? Bank of America "Donna Olsen's Travel Fund"?

Am I correct, all, that this would work?

I have two different charities that I am doing Fundraiser shows for. I am personally involved with both charities, so I have agreed to donate my commission as well. How does that work? Does the Head Office cut a check and then I send them a separate check, or can I ask the Head Office to include my commission amount in their check as well?

Thanks!

You would send them your own check once you get paid your commission.
