How long does the fundraiser usually last?

While there is no set time a fundraiser must stay open, we’ve found that keeping it open for 2 weeks has generally worked best. During that 2 weeks, you can expect the following to happen:

  1. You collect orders and payment for card boxes
  2. Your consultant orders the card boxes
  3. Orders are fullfilled and delivered to the organization (allow at least 2 weeks for delivery)
  4. Your organization distributes the card boxes to those who ordered them
  5. Your organization receives their earned funds to put towards their cause

Do we have to sell a lot of boxes?

No, the minimum amount of boxes you need to sell is an easily attainable 15 boxes of cards. This allows you to qualify for the program’s full benefits.

When do we collect payment for ordered cards?

Payment for cards are collected at the time of sale.

Does our organization need to charge tax?

If your organization is not tax-exempt, taxes will be deducted from the total funds raised or you have the option to charge tax to those who order cards. If you have a tax exempt number for your organization, just provide it to your consultant with the related documentation.

Who should checks be made out to?

Checks should be made payable to your organization.

What materials does Usborne Books & More Provide?

Your UBAM consultant provides you with order forms, signage, and an order tally sheet to complete and return.

Are there any incentives for those selling the card boxes?

There are incentives available from your consultant, but they will reduce the total amount awarded to the organization.

How does my organization get our profit return?

This will depend on how we set up our fundraiser. If you collect funds for all boxes sold, you will keep $13 per box sold (minus any applicable tax). If funds for all orders are turned into me, then you will receive a check for your profits after the conclusion of our fundraiser.
