Possible fundraiser?

Back in September we contacted daughter's school about possibly doing a fundraiser for the school. The person we were told to contact seemed totally disinterested and passed it off as being some other depts responsibility. We thanked them and let it go at that.

Yesterday my 12 yr old says, "my teacher is interested in seeing a catalog, I told her you sell PC". So this morning I sent her to school with a catalog not thinking much about it.

This afternoon she comes home with not 1 but 3 orders totaling aprox. $50. She also said she had to collect an order from two other's and then take the catalog to another teacher that asked to see it. :p

Tomorrow morning she is heading to school with a bright yellow folder with the following in it:

Fundraiser proposal letter
Why choose PC for fundraising info (thank you scott!)
What can we earn from PC Fundraiser sheet
A sheet describing the guest special of 20% off Stoneware for the month of Feb.
Outside order forms for February
An additional catalog

I think if maybe a teacher realizes they can do a fundraiser then maybe the idea coming from a teacher would get past the person we talked to back in Sept.

Seems the kid remembers my saying (6 months ago!) I would put 10% of product sales in their bank account if they brought us orders they initiated. :D I just think she wants to go to Toronto!

Here is the forms I use. I have tweaked them from what was on here based on one fundraiser I had that cost me more than I made... :grumpy:

A few pointers:

1. Have a meeting with ALL parents who are interested in doing this. Don't just meet with a few people and hope the information gets passed on.
2. Have a CLEAR deadline with everyone. Since I didn't get to speak to all parents involved, some turned theirs in AFTER the deadline and got mad at ME because they were told the wrong information by others.
3. Try to get a list of who is going to collect orders so you can call to remind them a few days before the deadline. That was where the one I did was such a mess. I didn't have any clue who was doing it. I was told there was 25 parents for the Competition Team. Only 7 participated.
4. Make it VERY clear how much is donated by PC. Since some fundraisers for overpriced candles, wrapping paper, etc. are 50%, the 15% from PC looks like a small amount.

Good luck!

If it's a fundraiser you really believe in, or if you just really want to, you can donate some of your commission back -it is a very effective selling point and makes people want to participate more.
