It’s that time of year again – seems like everyone is selling something! 🙂
Know any fun ideas for fundraising? Post them up! Do you offer fundraising, know of something fun? What has worked well, or not in the past? Here’s a few good ones:
Mabel’s Labels is a great way to fundraise! Their labels are the best and it’s something people can always use more of.
Melanie is offering fundraising through Norwex – Here’s what she has to say about it – Sell certain products or packages (examples: sportzyme for your hockey team, or an offering of several packages for your school fundraiser) or sell anything from the catalogue. I will give you 20% of all sales plus $25 for each party booking (after the party has taken place). Fundraising is flexible. Contact me to design your perfect fundraiser with Norwex. Contact her at email@example.com for more info.
Botanical Paperworks has fundraising too! It’s a green one too, handmade plantable paper. You can do xmas cards, calendars, notepads etc. I think it’s a really neat idea – I’d love to plant my xmas cards when I’m done with them! 🙂 Check out their site for more info
One of my favourite game companies Gamewright has started doing fundraising, but so far only in the states. Maybe if we all contact them they will offer it here? 😉 It’s a neat idea, the school hosts a family game night, you get to try out and play all the games and then buy the ones you want and the school gets a chunk of the profits. We LOVE their games, I know this would be a night I’d love and I’d be buying all my xmas gifts! Contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know Canada loves that idea.
I’m an Epicure Consultant and have some great Christmas fundraising opportunities available! Very similar to Norwex in that 20% of all sales goes to the organization! Together we can come up with the perfect fundraiser for your group! http://www.epicureselections.com for more info on the product or email me email@example.com with any questions!
Thanks! Elizabeth Lutz
I read in the Steinbach Carillon a few weeks ago, that they want to get rid of chocolate fundraisers and bring in vegetable fundraisers instead.
I’m curious as to how well it will go over.
I think it’s a great idea! a much healthier option instead of selling junk food.
I remember that last year it being a very hot topic. I’m a fan of useful stuff fundraisers, the coupon books are nice, food people would buy anyway – just regular day to day stuff. Not a big fan of magazines, gambling type stuff
For information on the vegetable fundraiser, which piloted last year and has expanded province wide this year, see this website. http://www.farmtoschoolmanitoba.ca
We’re selling magazines. I bought Mabel’s Labels and Show and Save from my nieces already. The labels are great, but really pricey, especially if you have 2 or more kids to buy for.
One good thing for a big family is to just get the last name on it – a lot cheaper that way! 🙂
We are doing Sobey’s gift cards. It is something most people will use. Anyone want one?
Another great one is Gourmet Kitchen Fundraising. The products are delicious and everything arrives labeled and sorted by seller. It is a breeze to run.
I am a Steeped Tea Consultant and have lots of great options… Organizations will recieve 25% of their total sales … its not just tea either! We have accessories, spices, baking items, etc…
