Default Fundraisers?

Has anyone out there done fundraisers? If so did you have any luck with them? I am thinking of approaching some people regarding some fundraisers and wondered if it was worth it for all parties involved?

Thanks!

Generally the benefit to fundraisers for the consultant is that they get new contacts and they get sales for incentives and things. The consultant donates a portion or all of her commission to the fundraiser. The other way to do them is on a month where there is a great customer special (like the DUTs for $15) and they charge regular price and the difference goes to the organization. There are different ways to work them but that is a few ways that the math works. The consultant usually keeps the host benefits for herself so she can add to her display or she can use some of them to pay for the the customer orders and then use the cash the customer paid to replace a small part of her commission. Some consultants might offer some prizes if they like using the host rewards. Always remember to at least allow for your costs (catalogs, order forms, or paperwork, sorting the order, organizing the event, etc.)

The consultant would usually give a check to the organization once she receives her commission from the company.

Depending on how you work it and what you are selling, I have always found the best way if there are multiple people in the organization is to set a sales goal for each participant. I would also use a sliding scale. LIke the more sales they get, the higher percentage of the sales they get.

Hope this helps

Thanks so much! I figure I might have better luck booking parties by doing fundraisers for people. Mostly teachers since that's where I work
