Fundraising is not all about candy and snacks. At Freedom Fundraising, we want to offer you a plethora of fundraising products to choose from because we know that each group has their needs and ideas on what their fundraiser should be. As part of this we like to offer premium fundraisers that come in the form of two brochures, Celestial Candles and Excite Your Snacktime.
One of the best features about fundraising with brochures is apparent right from the start: brochures are completely FREE to get started. You can call or go on our website and order as few or as many brochures for your group as you need. We have no minimum order on any of our fundraising products, including our brochures. Once your group receives the brochures, start selling!
Both of our brochures contain premium products in two different fundraising categories. Celestial Candles has a variety of hand poured candles in fall scents as well as sand diffusers, wooden wick candles and a ceramic wall warmer with wax melts. Excite Your Snacktime contains a large selection of snack-time favorites including gummies, popcorn mixes, nuts and of course chocolates. All items in each brochure sell at 50% profit to you.
When an individual makes a sale, they can fill in the customer’s information on the backside of the brochure on the order form. We recommend that sellers collect money up front for all orders. By doing so, this will ensure that customers will not forget about their order or change their mind upon delivery, leaving you with unsold product. If you choose to collect money at the time of delivery, be sure to inform customers of the impending delivery date (which we discuss further down in this article).
Once your group has collected all of their orders, you place your total order with us by calling 1-800-500-2500 or faxing it to us at 1-866-400-0784. When your order is delivered to you, be sure to schedule some time to sort out product to each seller. If you will need assistance with this portion, place a sign up sheet for your group and/or group parents to come and help sort as well as pick up their product. Sending out notifications on when parents can pick up their orders can also be helpful as your sellers may not be able to carry or handle all the items at once.
We also recommend that sellers notify their customers of when they will drop off their orders, especially if money is still owed.
For both brochures, the deadline for Christmas orders is Friday, November 21, 2014. The brochure sales end of year deadline is April 4, 2015 for the Excite Your Snacktime and August 1, 2015 for Celestial Candles.
If you have additional questions regarding either of our brochures or would like to get started today, call us at 1-800-500-2500. You can also view both brochures on our website Celestial Candle or Excite Your Snacktime.
