Do You Like Pizza?

Pizza Fundraising Discount CardIt's always time for pizza, so here's the fundraiser that gives people free pizza all year round! FastTrack's two-for-one pizza fundraiser is a special discount card designed to take advantage of one of America's favorite foods. This pizza card works easily and effectively. Get started by contacting the manager at your favorite pizza parlor -- they can be a mom-and-pop shop or a franchise, both work great!

It's an easy sell when you talk to them. After all, what business would refuse any new customers? When they agree to sponsor the promotion, they'll see plenty of new customers coming in; they purchase one pizza and get the second one free.

Not only does it benefit the pizza parlor by attracting more customers, it's an easy sell to the buying public as well. Pizza discount cards sell for just $10, meaning that the cards will likely pay for themselves with just one purchase! Best of all, you'll make up to a $9 profit on each card. It's simply a win-win-win situation for everyone.

P.S. For the month of July, we're giving a 10% discount to all Pizza Card orders! *must mention JulyPromo during checkout.
Summer's Favorite Fundraisers

We're heading into July now--the stretch between the beginning of summer break and back-to-school. July and August are prime times to tap into weather-friendly fundraisers; depending on what you're looking to do, you just might find some out-of-school summer vacationers wanting to do something fun and helpful with their time. Here are a few ideas designed for basking in the sun.

Summer Time Fundraising

-Car wash: It's an old standby, but it works! After all, everyone needs their car washed. Gather your volunteers--and with summer break in full stride, you might be able to find restless do-good volunteers at churches, the YMCA, or summer school--and post some flyers up around the neighborhood. All you need is a hose, some buckets, soap, and volunteers, so it can be done even at a volunteer's driveway. However, it doesn't hurt to do it in an open area like the YMCA parking lot (contact facilities coordinators about availability).

-Softball tournament: This one takes some coordination but it can be extremely popular and a great deal of fun. Local baseball fields are often available for use when you schedule with the city. With a little bit of logistical help and some dedicated volunteers, you can partner with sports shops, local businesses, schools, and more to try to get teams and players interested. Just charge a registration fee and tell them where the proceeds will go, then schedule your tournament (or a single game) with the city parks and recreation department. With enough interest and volunteers, the sky's the limit.

-BBQ in the park: Who doesn't love a barbecue? Who doesn't love a good time at the park? Combine the two together and you've got the recipe for fundraising success. You'll have to coordinate with the city's parks and recreation department, and you'll need volunteer cooks, servers, and cleaning to get this started. Once the basics fall into place, it's easy to add as much as you want. Try contacting local grocery stores for food donations and see if you can get local businesses to sponsor you. Any artists on your staff? How about a caricature booth or balloon animals? From carnival games to live music (local bands love any exposure; chances are, you can get their support for free), it's a great way to bolster neighborly spirits and raise funds.

Did You Know ...

-One of the best organizations to work with when it comes to fundraising and outreach is the Kiwani's Club. With some 16,000 clubs worldwide, it's simply a great partner for any organization to work with.

-Online viral marketing (word-of-mouth marketing) can be one of the most effective ways to create publicity and raise funds -- if you've got a worthy cause. Carefully research effective and ineffective viral marketing campaigns before launching one; you'll notice a big difference in what works and what doesn't!

-Is online soliciting putting an end to direct-mail fundraising? Not so, says a recent AFP study. After surveying 1,200 people, the AFP study shows that the convenience of online donations haven't significantly eroded direct-mail fundraising. Your best bet? Attack both methods!
