Earning Potential

Sample Group Size: 20 participants

  • Every person sold 20 boxes: 400 boxes sold = $5,200 raised
  • Every person sold 15 boxes: 300 boxes sold = $3,900 raised
  • Every person sold 10 boxes: 200 boxes sold = $2,600 raised

Timeframe

We have found that keeping your fundraiser open for two weeks works well. You collect the sales flyers/order forms and payment, and your Consultant will order the boxes of cards. You can expect to receive delivery of the cards approximately 2 weeks later. Your group will then deliver the cards to those who purchased them and enjoy the funds earned!

We know that there are many organizations with funding needs each year, and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to meet those needs. When you choose to participate in Cards For A Cause Fundraiser, over 40% of all sales benefit your organization.  Our rate of return is well above the average profit margin in the industry. Your organization will receive up to $13 per box (sold for $30 a box). There is no maximum amount that you could earn! If you are not tax exempt, you will need to either include the cost of tax (and take out of your profit), or charge additional for tax. If your organization is tax exempt, we will work with you to gather the correct paperwork and get this submitted for approval.
