5 Reasons to Host a Cards for a Cause Fundraiser

5 Reasons to Host a Cards for a Cause Fundraiser

We know that you have many choices when it comes to picking a fundraiser for your individual or organization's needs! Not all fundraisers are created equal! Some are more work than they are worth and a headache to run. We would love to share more information about our amazing Cards for a Cause fundraiser offered through Usborne Books & More. Our partners have given rave reviews about ease, quality, and more and many are already planning to partner with us again in the future! We hope you'll partner with us, too! Read on to hear 5 reasons why we think you will love our unique fundraiser! 

1. Easy to Run

This fundraiser is so easy to run! After a short phone call to learn about your/your organization’s needs, and after a bit of email correspondence to get you the digital and/or printable materials you will need, you/your group can be up and running with this fundraiser in less than 24 hours. 

What’s great is we only offer 5 products through this fundraiser, so your group can provide me with a simple tally at the conclusion of the fundraiser so that I can prepare your order. This makes tracking orders super simple for you and any members in your group who may be collecting orders. At the end of your fundraiser, all of the boxes are shipped to one location for distribution! Your members will appreciate that there is no cookie dough or pizzas to refrigerate or chocolate to keep from melting before your members can distribute the products to customers. 

The overwhelming feedback that I’ve gotten from past organizations that I’ve partnered with is that this is one of the easiest fundraisers that they have ever conducted. Many organizations even go as far as to set up annual or biannual Cards for a Cause fundraisers with me for simplicity’s sake and because their members have been so impressed with our products!

2. Great for Individuals and Groups of All Sizes 

I have worked with individuals and many different types of groups and organizations. It is super easy for small groups and even individuals to reach our low 15 box order minimum and take advantage of our high profit fundraiser. We can run this fundraiser on a small scale with a low monetary fundraising goal or we can run it on a large scale with a significant monetary fundraising goal. More on how I customize your experience in the next bullet point!

3. Flexible & Customizable 

While we can set up your fundraiser solely via email correspondence, I highly recommend that you setup a brief call with me so that we can chat about your organization’s needs. This allows me to custom tailor your fundraising experience while partnering with me. I’ve worked with dance teams, clubs, individuals, boy scout troops, foundations, church groups, preschools, elementary schools, and more. Each organization has unique needs and goals and it’s my aim to provide you with the best materials to suit your organization’s needs and promote your fundraiser in the way that you think would work best to reach your stakeholders. This could include digital and/or paper order forms, online promotion “events,” digital methods of payment collection, additional fliers, email or social media graphics for marketing, and more.

4. High Profit

Your organization will receive $13 per card box sold and if your organization is tax exempt, you will not need to charge customers tax on their boxes and no tax will need to come out of the raised funds. If your organization is tax exempt, you will simply need to provide me with a copy of your state’s sales tax exempt form and I will submit that with your order. 

If your organization is not tax exempt, that is no problem! You can choose to either charge your local tax on the $17 per box that we will submit per box sold OR you can choose to take the tax out of the raised funds. 

"Receive up to a 43% return on this fundraiser"

Overall, your organization can receive up to a 43% return on this fundraiser, which is amazing for the fundraising industry!

5. Affordable & Practical Product 

You will be blown away by the quality and practicality of our beautiful hand-embellished greeting cards! We get compliments on our cards all of the time and we stand behind these products! Your customers will appreciate the convenience of having a stunning box of stationary at their disposal to meet all of their card-giving needs! 

We offer 5 card box options including 2 different all occasion boxes, 1 thanks and blanks box, 1 kids birthday box, and 1 unique holiday box that features holiday cards for the whole year. (Please note that box designs are subject to availability and may change during your fundraiser, however we ALWAYS offer the same 5 box types. If a box design should change during your fundraiser, it will be replaced with the same box *type*, containing cards that are of the same quality.) 

At $30 a box, your customers will receive 30 individually wrapped cards with matching envelopes and our holiday box actually includes 50 (unwrapped) cards. The boxes are sturdy and can be repurposed for other uses later, too! Most boxes include handy tabs which make it easy to grab a card for any occasion and go! At $1 or less per card that you could easily spend $4-$5 at your local convenience store for similar quality, you truly can’t beat our price!
