View Full Version : Anybody done a Fund Raiser show?

If so, what percentage of the sales go you give to the fund raised organization?

And my thought was to give the check of the percentage to the hostess, with the check made out to the organization. Is that a good idea? Or do you do it differently?

Thanks for your help.

Hey Bug,

I've given 100% of my commission minus expenses (I keep the hostess jewelry) and I've given 50% (I keep 1/2 of the jewelry). It just depends if you're willing to donate all your commission. I wouldn't recommend giving 100% all the time but for me, if it's for a good cause, I have no problem doing that.
Always make your check out to the organization no matter if you give it to the hostess or the organization directly.

Hi Doodlebug!

I have done one fundraiser and I gave 20% to the organization and kept the hostess jewelry. I wrote the check out directly to the organization. I think it just depends on how much you want to give the organization/charity. I will probably donate 100% to a charity in November because I am very passionate about it........

I think fundraisers are great - good for you!

Muffy, I like that about 20%. And you still get the 10% AND the free jewelry. Thanks for giving me a good way to do it that's a win-win.

Muffy and Ralphie, instead of starting a new topic, could you help me with this?

Yesterday, I found a report about me on the Silpada site (and I can't find it again because I find that area SO confusing!!!). It listed my CV, SDR Cost, Other and Total. And then there's the PVC.

I'm struggling with all of these. I believe the "CV" is the 70%, correct? Does it mean Commissionable Volume?

And how is that different than the SDR--and what does that stand for?

And the PCV--is that Personal Commissionable Volume? How is that different than the CV?

SO confusing.
