Getting an education from a private school comes with certain benefits. Children, in most cases, get more hands-on experience in the classroom, as well as closer attention from teachers. The mainstream fads and overall culture of the public school system are avoided, and there is a broad exposure to more educational activities. Unfortunately, there is one thing that cannot be avoided: private school fundraising. No matter what price you pay for education, there is never enough. The tuition may be steep, but it will probably not cover every single thing. Extracurricular events and activities will require a little more work but it is worth it in the end.
A great private school fundraiser is the custom discount card. This fundraiser is individually designed to fit the need and visual appeal of the group or school. The process is simple. Take a merchant agreement form to several venues in your area and have the manager or owner fill out the paperwork. Then fax the pages to your fundraising consultant and call them to place the order. Once everything is paid for, and the cards are printed they are sent right to you.
Each card sells for $10; your profit is determined by how many your purchase. Decide how many students will be participating in the fundraiser, and estimate how many each child will be able to sell. In most cases, students can sell anywhere from 5-10 easily. This private school fundraiser is great because it allows children to go out into the community without having to keep track of all the places they have been. As a direct-sell item, there is no need for writing down orders or delivering at a separate time. Students just collect payment as they sell the cards until they have sold them all.
The next time that the private school you are involved at asks for private school fundraising ideas, be sure to mention the custom discount cards.
