    The easiest, fastest, safest and most secure way to raise money for school

Tired of sending your kids door to door selling candy, pizzas, wrapping paper, etc?

Now, the easiest, fastest, safest and most secure way to raise money for schools is now available!


Many parents dislike hitting up their friends and family for General Mills boxtops or Campbell Soup labels, or to buy products such as cookie dough, coupon books or wrapping paper. "Fundraising as it exists in many schools today takes way too much work"

A high school principal the other day said that in order to keep the sports/music programs running for the high school of around ~2000 students, they need student/athletes and their parents raise around $500,000 a year through fundraising methods. No wonder parents are feeling burned out!

Not safe, secure and potentially dangerous.

As schools are increasingly looking for ways to raise funds due to funding cutbacks and otherwise, the topic of fundraising-by-child is not going away anytime soon. This model for getting money into the schools' coffers may be effective, but at what cost?

We tell our children repeatedly not to talk to strangers, yet we may still consider sending them along on their merry way to strangers' homes, asking for money. Such an ironic switch on the age-old fear that parents everywhere warn their children about - taking candy from a stranger. Now, we are telling our kids to give candy to a stranger, and also give them our blessings in the process.

There are still a fair amount of kids that continue to appear at our collective doors, asking for money. In this day and age, the practice is not only dated but problematic as well.

Some issues with this fundraising model:

  • Aside from the obvious potential for danger, sending the kids out to sell chocolates and candy on behalf of the school automatically sets up competition between friends;
  • Our children will experience undue pressure and stress about meeting an "acceptable" quota of sales for the school and potential feelings of guilt and failure if said quotas are not achieved;
  • The parents are unwittingly dragged into an activity of which they neither asked for nor wanted, causing resentment, aggravation and general irritation all around. It's not uncommon for parents to feel obliged to sell their child's chocolates at their own place of employment in order to help the child to reach their goal (making both parents and non-parents alike uncomfortable and often angry). Either that or they have to make the choice between sending their child door-to-door, leaving mom or dad feeling uneasy and stressed, or go out with the kids to canvass and feel irritated and somewhat embarrassed that they've become a shill for the local school board. Neither option seems acceptable.




A recent report by Artez Interactive found Facebook had the greatest impact on fundraising when participants raised donations through families and friends.


School Fundraising on Facebook

Why? Because people care about the causes that their friends care about.

In fact, in an average peer-to-peer or "crowd sourced" campaign, 15 to 18 per cent of donations are referred from Facebook. In scenarios where a fundraising campaign allows registrants to use a social login, those who connect their accounts to Facebook will raise on average 40 per cent more than those who do not, plus earn 30 per cent more donations!

School Fundraising on Facebook

Research shows a 71% increase in donations when a free gift is offered rather than simply clicking the donate button.



School Fundraising on Facebook

Fund a Campaign places a PayPal shopping cart on your schools Facebook page with a "We Need Your Help" call to action. This encourages a "followers" to donate $100 and receive a free gift, an amazing flashlight pen (or whatever you choose) for their generosity. We collect the money, record the donor's information and ship the product right to their door.

The only responsibilities assigned to the school are to send a "Thank You" email to the donor. Fund A Campaign does everything else. We furnish the gift, collect the money, pack and ship the item and distribute the proceeds.

The school does nothing else and receives 100% of the net proceeds.

The synergy of Facebook "friends"

Example... if the total cost (the gift item, shipping, handling, payment processing, PayPal Shopping Cart, etc.) is $15, the net profit will be $85, which the school receives deposited directly to their bank account. This works 24/7 and is a continuing program that Fund A Campaign monitors and administers.

If you have 50 Facebook followers that will donate $100 and "shares" this with their FB friends, that nets $4,250.
Now these friends have 50 friends each (total of 2500 friends) and just 10% of those (250) donate $100 for a gift, that brings in $21,250.

With just these 300 FB followers, it brings in $25,500. You are also helping build name recognition for the organization by sending a logo imprinted gift

This works 24/7 and is a continuing program that Fund a Campaign monitors and administers.




Imagine the possibilities...


If you decide to ask for only $50 donations, the net proceeds would be $35. Using the same scenario of 300 Facebook friends, would yield $10,500!
