If you are in charge of organizing the fundraising effort for your school this year, you will have to make a series of decisions on how to go about things. One of the most important decisions is choosing whether to do a pre-sale or direct sale school fundraiser. A lot depends on the nature of your group, the size of it, and the monetary goals you have in mind, but rest assured there is a pre-sale or direct sale school fundraiser out there for you no matter what you are trying to accomplish, and no matter how many people you have helping you.

Pre-Sale school fundraisers work well for large groups, or groups that don't have a lot of cash to invest upfront. There is no monetary investment required from you with a pre-sale school fundraiser - you only have to call up and order it, and then wait for your brochures and order forms to arrive. The kids go around and collect orders and money, and then you gather it all up and send in the amount needed to pay for the products. Some of the pre-sale school fundraisers to have higher minimum order requirements, and that's what makes those particular ones better for large groups, as they have more selling power and aren't so worried about achieving numbers.

A direct sale school fundraiser is one in which you pay for the products at the time you order them, and then we ship them to you to sell directly. Direct sale school fundraisers include candy bars, scratch cards, and pizza cards. These work really well for small groups because the profits are high, and of course there is the benefit that once you have made your initial investment in a direct sale school fundraiser, all the money you make from it afterwards is yours to keep This can work really well if you have the funds available to invest in a direct sale school fundraiser.
