February is here which means it’s time for a new “Dealership Spotlight” feature. This month the spotlight is on Diamond Fundraising. Diamond Fundraising joined the Butter Braid® Fundraising family almost ten years ago. From the very beginning, the owner of Diamond Fundraising has been providing the fundraising groups of north Texas with simple programs and delicious pastries. Now, she’s preparing for another decade of guiding her groups down the path toward fundraising success.
Kerri Linder started her journey with Butter Braid Fundraising when she worked for another fundraising dealership. All Star Fundraising, as part of their territory, serves the communities of Louisiana and East Texas. This is the area Kerri helped cover. She was with All Star Fundraising for about four years when her husband’s job transferred him out of Louisiana. Kerri knew she didn’t want to leave the Butter Braid Fundraising family, so she decided to start her own dealership in their new home of Royse City, TX. Diamond Fundraising opened its doors in August 2012, serving the North Texas community.
Changes to the Dealership
Today, Kerri still runs the business almost entirely on her own. She does get plenty of support from her husband, Charles, who helps with logistics and deliveries. Since 2012, Kerri has greatly expanded her programs to better serve local fundraising groups. One of the biggest changes she’s made has been the addition of the online store to her programs.
This new fundraising option allows sellers to promote their own, personal online store link via email, text, or social media. Supporters can order and pay online using a credit card or mobile wallet. As a bonus, all deliveries are prepacked and organized by seller to keep the fundraising process as easy as possible. Groups really enjoy having these great, new features to support them in their fundraising efforts, and Kerri is very glad to have it as part of her fundraising programs.
Kerri enjoys her time working with local kids and helping them experience things they normally wouldn’t be able to if it wasn’t for fundraising. Whether it’s schools, clubs, daycares, sports groups, or volunteer organizations, Kerri considers herself lucky to be able to give back to her community. Over the years, Diamond Fundraising has helped raise over $1 million for local causes.
Diamond Fundraising has been a great addition to the Butter Braid Fundraising family, and we are very thankful to have had them with us for the last ten years. We hope everyone will join us in congratulating Kerry, Charles, and Diamond Fundraising for their decade of service to their community.
