Pampered Chef: Fundraiser Questions about HWC Fundraiser

    Newbie here with questions!!! I have a lady that I would like to talk to about the HWC fundraiser. She herself does an annual event to help raise money for breast cancer awareness and it goes to Susan G. Komen foundation. I wanted to talk to her about doing a fundraiser to help her organization. My question is...Can she do a HWC fundraiser in May and the money go to her organization or does the money go to ACS. I am so confused (doesn't take much:rolleyes:) but I want to make sure that I approach her with the correct info. Am I right that the sell of "pink" products ($1) goes to ACS but the funds from her fundraiser go to her organization? Do I set up her as the host and HWC in the organization name or her organization? How will they know it is HWC? Don't I have to HWC in the organization for them to know about the $1 and then will the money go to ACS? Oh my :confused:

    Please help to any these questions!!

    Thanks!!

    A HWC fundraiser only benefits ACS. This includes the max 25% contribution.

    She can do a fundraiser for her own organization, but the max will be 15% contribution.

    Yes, the $1 contribution for the pink products goes to ACS.

    Just a couple of added comments here. If the party is $600 or more then the donation is 15%. If it is under that then the donation amount is 10%.
    And, I am saying this because people forget this every year, the Round-Up from the Heart Donations, still only benefit Feeding America. They do NOT transfer to the group. AND even with an HWC fundraiser, they still go to Feeding America.
    Either way it is still a benefit to ACS so...

    I like to stress to FR chairpersons that FRs in May are double-dipping. Even if it's for some other group, the ACS still benefits because of the guest specials. So guests are helping 2 organizations at once. That's just awesome!

    I am still trying to work this out in my mind on what to say. Would you do this as a "Cooking Show Fundraiser"? I have read this site backwards and forwards and you ALL have wonderful ideas. What are your recommendations for this? The lady does a tremendous amount of fundraising for breast cancer and I want to present it in the best way that will sell her to give it a try. I would like for her to do a regular fundraiser to give money to her organization and in May so the guest sales will go to ACS. What do you recommend? I have looked at the letters in the files and nothing is jumping out at me. I love that you all are so brave and jump in with both feet. Maybe it will come thru the screen and come to me!!:rolleyes:

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to propose that the show will be a regular fundraiser held in May. This means that 10 - 15 % (15% if sales are over 600) will go to her own breast cancer organization. And that $1 of each pink item will go to HWC (ACS breast cancer program). Don't forget to tell her that an additional $3 will go to her charity for each booking. Note these are the amounts that PC donates, and you can add an additional amount if you like.

    Instead of a starting with a letter, I suggest giving her a call. Let her know that you are aware of all her hard work in supporting her organization and let her know of what you can do to help her.

    Also when you are taking to her, let her know that the entire line is available in a fundraiser show.

    Hope that helps!
     
  9. I have a question relating to the Fundraisers. Can a person donate money if they don't want to purchase any products? If so, how do I do that in P3?

    Yes, they need to tell you what organization they are donating their host benefits to. Instead of host benefits, HO will calculate 10 or 15% of sales and send a check (made out to the organization) with the products. Your commission goes to 15% (or 17% if you have 15,000 in career sales). To do so, set up the show as a Fundraiser show (instead of a cooking show).

    I think she meant customers, not the host.

  12. It's not a host, it's a customer of a fundraiser show

    If customers want to donate without buying products, they should just write a check straight to the organization and give it to the chairperson. HO only handles product purchases. And round-up on a FR still goes to Feeding America (even on HWC shows).
