It's an idea that has been used very successfully in fundraising past
It's a grass roots idea in that it fosters community involvement, involves some rallying, some educating and some enrolling
the organization has to really want to create change
I supply the product, the information and the strategies
I donate the profits to your organization
Here's the proposal:
Take your basic all purpose green product
( perhaps this one might fit the occasion - she says giggling greenly )
offer it to a population as a green fundraiser
a population could be your church, your school, your scouts, your company, your neighborhood
educate why it's cool why it's green how it benefits each families home how it benefits the planet
educate why it's profitable for the organization
establish a fundraising goal
sell one per family/person at retail pricing
Let's say the goal is 1000 families. I will give you $2 /per bottle sold = $2000
Meet your goal by 50% and I will add an additional $1 per bottle $3 /per bottle ( a little incentive never hurt )
$3000 is a nice bit of green fundraising - in earthy greenness and in green cash!!
Cost per family is approx $ 23.00
11.95 buys 48 gallons of green clean plus 9.10 to set each family up ease of dispensing tools - 3 spray bottles with labels, and squeeze bottle for dripping
( detail: to make a window solution one needs to add a single drop to 16 oz of water. Talk about concentrated! )
add a bit of sales tax in there and again it's approximately $23.00 per purchase
meet your fundraising goal 100 % and I will treat your organization to the shipping
product is shipped direct to your organization
This is a 33% immediate return for purchase ( know of any other fundraiser that matches that return? ) It is earth and cause oriented. While it's a push to purchase, the return in more families cleaning green is very powerful. Easy to see and participate in the results. The product is undeniably useful. Won't melt in your hands, won't add to the pile of wrapping paper you already have or have you buy anything you don't really need
Pretty cool - huh??
Is this an idea that appeals to you or your organization ?
If so, I'd love to help make your green fundraiser a success.
Let's green-a-gize! ( a mother earth-ism for strategize in a greenly kindof way )
