Fundraising Goals - Review your goals with your members and set a minimum number of items for each participant to sell. In addition to showing the brochure to co-workers, friends, and family, we suggest asking your participants to email 30-40 contacts, send texts, and post on all available social media to purchase directly with the seller and/or share the link to purchase online. Supporters can pay your organization by cash, check, or cash app. You choose. We also provide electronic payment by phone.
Promoting your Online Store - Your organization can raise even more money with our online store by offering hundreds of assorted items and donation options. Online sales will make it easy for your participants to contact their family and friends locally and throughout the United States. We will set up an account for your organization, provide you with a unique Group ID for your store, and we'll provide login information for your chairperson's dashboard. Your chairperson will invite their participants to register as a seller by inviting them to visit the online store, entering your Group ID, and clicking on a link to register as a seller. Visit your chairperson's dashboard and you'll be able to track progress in REAL-TIME! Students will receive prize credit for their online sales.
Online Fundraising Options - Your supporters can have their order shipped to your organization along with your brochure sales order, or they can have their order shipped directly to their home. Your organization will earn a 40% profit on all online sales.
Student Success - The key to a successful online fundraiser is to assure your students register as a seller and be sure they use many options to invite all their friends and family to shop on your Incredible Collection online fundraising store. We highly recommend encouraging your participants to send out messages on the first day your sale starts. Because people are forgetful or may need to be asked more than once before purchasing, we recommend asking your participants to send out emails and posts as a reminder halfway through your sale. A few days before the end of your sale, send a "last chance to order" reminder should be sent. As a chairperson, sending reminders to your participants will be the key to success.
After your traditional brochure selling period (we recommend 2-3 weeks) collect the order forms and money from your sellers. Money is deposited in your organization's account, and the order forms are submitted to us for processing. We will provide you with a shipping label for returning your seller's order forms. There are no case requirements for Incredible Collection fundraiser! Order only what you sell!
