The Ins And Outs of Catalog Fundraising

Catalog fundraising is a great way to customize a fundraiser for your venue. If you are a church, school or other civic group you can catalog fundraise to earn money to further your cause. With catalog fundraising you can cater to your niche market while the catalog company does all the work. You just bring in the sales.

Catalog fundraising can sell any number of items such as candy, toys, wrapping paper and small gifts. Your catalog fundraiser can be customized to suite any season of the year and be as profitable as up to 60% profits. This makes it a great way to fundraise with little to do other than get people to shop.

With catalog fundraising you will have a wide selection of products to choose from some even being familiar brand name products. The catalog company will offer you brochures and other supplies to help you sell the products. Some catalog fundraising companies will even offer free shipping and immediate delivery of items ordered. This will make your fundraiser more appealing to the shoppers.

The way catalog fundraising works is your volunteers sell items such as toys, wrapping paper, or gifts from the catalog. The catalog fundraising company then ships the items immediately when ordered. Your volunteers do not have to handle any products and they can easily sell to friends, family and co-workers.

After all your catalog sales are totaled up the catalog fundraising company will total up your sales and send you check for your earnings. It is an easy and fun way to fundraise. If you select a catalog with useful and quality items for sale you will be able to earn a nice amount of money while having a fairly simple fundraiser.

Just be sure to take the time to select the best catalog fundraising company for your group. You want to be sure that the items you are offering for sale are well suited to the audience that will be doing the buying.
