Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of organizations can benefit from this fundraiser?
The list is endless – sports teams, cheer squads, mission trips, medical expenses, animal shelters…any organization that is in need of some additional funds. I’ve personally used Cards for a Cause to raise money for a family whose son had leukemia and for a breast cancer non-profit.
Can you work with schools?
No, right now I cannot work with schools or any organization, like a sports team, tied to a school. I can work with preschools that are not connected to a K-12 school.
Where are the cards shipped?
All cards will be shipped to one location and will need to be distributed by the organization.
How much does my organization receive?
Your organization will receive up to $13 per box of cards sold (at $30 a box), depending on tax exempt status. There is no maximum amount that you could earn!
Is there a minimum number of boxes that need to be sold?
Yes, in order to qualify for a fundraiser, you only need to sell 15 boxes of cards. With the custom URL and promotional graphics I’ll give you, hitting that minimum should be a breeze!
Is there a limit to the amount of money we can make?
You’re not going to believe this, but NO! There’s no limit! You can sell as many boxes as you can!
Who collects the money?
Your organization is in charge of collecting the money from the individuals who purchased cards. Money is due in full before the order can be placed.
How long should the sale last?
This will depend on your organization, but I recommend about two weeks. The timing may vary if you have on-site sales or specific events the fundraiser is linked to.
