How is this different/better than other calendar fundraisers I have seen?
- The major difference is that our calendar is ALL digital. Once members have uploaded their calendar to social media, it can be shared by others; reaching thousands more people.
- No keeping track of who donated to constantly update/mark-off dates taken. Once the date is purchased, the donor's name populates the square (s) and it is no longer available for donations.
How is the money collected? Do members have to collect the money?
NO. Once the date is taken, it goes directly to a general account. Members never have to reach out to collect the money, pledge, or donation. Once the fundraiser is completed, a check is cut to the organization with a breakdown of how much each member raised and grand total.
Do I have to collect any contacts? (phone numbers , emails, etc,)
NO. That is another feature that makes this so simple. Members do not have to make any awkward calls or share any contacts. They simply paste their unique URL to social media. They can email out the links to family and friends, but WE do not ask members to share any personal information with our company.
How much work is required from the leader of the organization?
All we need is an excel spreadsheet with first and last names. We do not need any emails, phone numbers, addresses, etc. That is it!
A spreadsheet will be generated with members' name and unique URL for them to copy and paste to social media.
How long does the fundraiser last?
It is up to each organization, but we recommend no more than 3-4 weeks.
Is there an incentive for donors to purchase multiple dates?
YES. Paramount Fundraising can add a drawing for a monetary amount. Each date/square purchased enters the donor into the drawing.
