In this section we’ll go over several reasons to use Special Moments Fundraising on your next fundraising project…
ATTITUDE MAKES US DIFFERENT
For starters, we consider ourselves your fundraising partner. Unfortunately, that makes us different from many of our competitors. Our biggest aim is to find a product that best suits your needs. Whether that is to maximize profit, minimize work, increase participation, or provide customers with the greatest value we’re your advocate when it comes to seeking that advice.
NO SCAMS, GIMMICKS, OR TRICKS
No gimmicks or scams to earn the % of profit offered or tricks to take money away. Unfortunately, not everyone is on board with this common sense approach. Have you been promised a % of profit from a product sale only to be disappointed to discover that profit calculation included selling additional items such as coupon cards or scratch off cards you receive at the end in order to get to the % of profit they advertised online? Have you not been told about shipping costs up front and had them added to your invoice? We believe these practices are misleading, confusing, and unacceptable. You’ll know the terms up front, and together we’ll set realistic goals.
A LONGTERM APPROACH
We build relationships with fundraising coordinators by being a source they can trust. We’ve turned the fundraising industry upside down by not force feeding you high profit overpriced items. It’s actually your choice and we lay out the pros and cons of each product type. If you fill out a info request form to be contacted we’d be happy to give you a call to discuss your needs.
LOW PROFIT % HOLDING YOU BACK?
I can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard from organizations who’ve sold items such as fruit, hams, mums, pizza kits, t-shirts, and more only to realize they were making 20% profit or less on those sales. Often times these groups are forced to do all the sorting at delivery as well when we know darn well that the manufacturer offers pre-sorting by student, but the customer wasn’t offered that service.
CAN THEY SAY HALF?
We can. The root word of FUNDRAISING is FUNDS. If you are making $.20 on the dollar with your current item you would have to sell 250% more product than many of the quality products we carry that earn organizations 50% profit. The old salesman’s adage, “it’s not % you put in the bank, it’s money” is nothing more than a poor excuse for a low % of profit.
