Hello! I'm new here. In efforts to help our school find vendors that offer better returns through their fundraising programs,I'm looking for vendors. Please share with me how YOU find your vendors. I am specifically looking to lower our carbon footprint by finding LOCAL vendors (in NJ).
I stumbled upon this page while looking for information on how to become a fundraising vendor. I am a parent of a 5th grader and can see the desperate need our schools have for funds. I am in the process of starting a new kind of company, where we manage personal computers and keep them problem-free, secure, and can even fix computer problems automatically. This is a real product, that solves real problems, not just "donation giveaway" junk.
Because we are an internet-based technology service company (not a manufacturer), I have a vision for a fundraiser program which would involve a large, upfront payoff, then followed every month in recurring revenues. This creates a scenario where schools can begin building a renewable funding model, rather than a one time payday.
Proposed benefits :
100 accounts: $1,500 up front, $5,100 possible annual profit.
1000 accounts: $15,000 up front, , total annual profit? $255,000 per year, or $3,600/month in recurring funding.
The service is set to be launched in one month. I have no idea about account retention or anything like that, but I would love the chance to get started funding schools ASAP.
I hope someone out there can provide me with some information as to where to start.
