Needing a good fundraiser? Tired of the low-profit fundraisers that require a lot of work? Have you ever considered discount card fundraising?
Yes, this is the fundraiser that many high schools throughout the nation do, but NO, it is not just for them. In fact, this fundraiser is one that no matter the organization or the size of the group, you will be able to raise money with very little hassle.
The fundraising discount card comes in a number of different varieties. One of the most common is the multi-merchant card. This card has a number of different local merchants on the back that each has a different offer or discount. The cardholder is entitled to use this card as a way to save money when visiting the different merchants. In the past groups purchased the cards for around $5 per card and sold them for $10, making a 50% profit. Now, because of competition, technology, and the Internet, prices to the groups have decreased allowing the organization to profit up to 90%. Some fundraising companies sign up the merchants for you and others allow you to sign up your own merchants which in turn is one of the other reasons for decreased cost and allows the group to have the merchants on the cards that they feel will help the card to sell better.
Another very popular fundraising card is the pizza discount card. Many groups all over the U.S. have found this card to be a beneficial fundraiser for their organization. Typical offers on these cards are Buy a large one-topping pizza at regular menu price, receive a medium one-topping pizza FREE!!? These cards also allow the group to make up to 90% profit. One thing to always keep in mind when searching for a discount card fundraiser is to make sure that the fundraising company, which can be found online, has agreements with the local merchants as well as the pizza restaurants to produce the cards. Without this agreement, a huge headache may come about if a number of cards have been purchased and are not able to be used at the said merchant.
Discount card fundraising is a great alternative to such fundraisers as selling cookie dough. There is no product to deliver at a later date and the return on investment tends to come at a much quicker pace. With a little research to discover the right discount card for your organization, you will find that discount card fundraising could very well be the fundraiser for you.
