So, I am with a fundraising company

but I swear I'm not evil.

If anyone ever needs to talk about their fundraiser for their school or organizations, have questions, or anything, I can answer them (and don't worry I'm not going to sneak in a 10 year contract

I just wanted to offer my services just in case, hope I help

gee it is a shame you are so far

As a matter of fact i have an appointment with a fundraiser company next week about changing to their company.

The best thing about it is they usually have a sale 2x's a year open to the public. Maybe we could charter a plane to go to yours! just kidiing but nice idea.

OK - have to say it - I HATE FUNDRAISERS. Now that that is out of the way, I know they are a necessary evil so please share. I need new fundraisers for next year. I really, REALLY do not want to do the same things yet again.

, I'm so happy I got some responces. I know that fundraisers are a burden, I'm the pta pres at my daughters elementary school.

Hey Skyesmom, what FR's does your school usually run? I'll let you know if we have anything different.

Hey Barb, I remember when we cut down on FR's last year, and the parents were actually mad that we didnt do a gift cat or cookie dough, because for some reason it was their way to buy gifts and thanksgiving and christmas and spring treats and desserts.

Hi clutterqueen, I know I wish we had a sale like that, but our left over product from the fall and spring go into Thank you boxes for the person in charge of the FR. Maybe you would like that better since they're free and everyone on this site loves free stuff.

Thanks everyone for responding so far, I love talking so this is really cool. :smileface

We can't accept stuff like that. We can "sample" products while looking for someone. That can be pretty liberal "sample" but we can't accept any sort of direct gift. I have also suggested to numerous reps that they put together a basket for our carnival of their stuff and we will see what the reaction is from our parents--most FR companies gladly do that.

We received a thank you box from you, sceona, and we use it as a raffle for our teachers. Before we run the fundraiser we leave a little note with a bag of candy to all the teachers asking and thanking for the support and tell them about the box of goodies. They love it.

hi bhahn, yah most of our schools that we give a thank you box to usually use it as a raffle at the carnival or for the teachers for helping. Some give it to the principal for helping. My school used it for the carnival.

Would you be more interested in going with a FR company that offered PRESORTED frozen food? Each students order is put into a bag or box, so you wont have to get extra help to distribute and have hand out errors. just a question.

FR Work

What company are you with? I've just joined one also and I'm a bit reluctant about it now.
