2. Improved Fundraiser Rewards
We offer more student incentive programs than any other school fundraiser company. You may be the fundraising chair for a large elementary school. Or maybe you sponsor a smaller high school group. Regardless, our prizes will boost your sales.
Traditional Prize Programs: The original standard of the fundraising industry. We offer the latest in prizes, toys, gadgets, and games. Every student who sells gets rewarded. And we presort all prizes inside each seller's box.
Big Event Prize Programs: A fundraising exclusive! Instead of prizes, offer your students a fun and educational experience. Our unique Big Event Prize Programs improve sales up to 300%.
We offer 4 event options. Check out our most popular Super Party or thrilling Magic Show. Choose our one-of-a-kind Reptile Adventures Show featuring live reptiles. Or excite your students with an exhilarating Super Splash Party.
Sportswear & Cash Prize Programs: Perfect for motivating high school students. Offer them personalized sportswear with your school name and colors. Especially good for sports teams, bands, and spirit groups.
But the ultimate high school motivator is cash. Your students will love this option.
3. Protected Fundraiser Kickoffs
Exclusivity is king, especially when it comes to school fundraising. Imagine finding out that another school is selling the same brochure in your area.
The fundraiser company doesn't inform you, or the other group. Neither school should be in this predicament.
What makes matters worse, there’s no turning back. The damage is already done. Instead of buying from your students, several customers buy from the other school.
Think about all the time, work, and energy you put into your fundraiser. And to have it compromised like this?
But our company works on a first come, first served basis. Once we book your program you're protected. No other school in your area can sell the same catalog during your fundraiser. This protects you from competing schools while paving the way for big results.
We would much rather have one happy school than two unhappy ones.
4. We’ll Prepare You for Fundraising Success
Before your sale, you’ll receive our complete fundraiser supply kit that’s designed to help you prepare for and run an effective campaign. Among other things, your kit will include:

Once you’ve reviewed it, you can provide any necessary feedback and we’ll make the changes. This will ensure that the final version is completely accurate and exactly the way you want it.

Kickoff & Promotional DVD: Our DVDs are for school-wide elementary and middle school fundraisers. They are designed to be both informational and exciting for your students.
Each school receives a specific DVD based on which prize program they choose. All you need to do is introduce the fundraiser in the beginning and then wrap it up at the end. Our DVD does the rest.
Your DVD even has promotional reminders that you can show your students during your fundraiser.
Sales Progress Tracker: Designed for smaller groups like high school sports teams and middle school bands, our progress tracker allows you to track each student’s sales at 3 different points of your fundraiser.
You can see along the way how close you are to achieving your goal. This tool also allows you to adjust your promotional strategy on the fly depending on how well your sale is doing.
