Focus on the Dollars and Cents – Not the Profit Percents!

Focus on the Dollars and Cents – Not the Profit Percents!

on October 7, 2019

When it comes to fundraising, a wise man once said, “You can’t deposit percents into your bank account.”

What you can deposit, is a high, per-item profit on each item sold!

Choose a simple fundraiser offering at least $5.00 per item profit. This will help you achieve your goals faster and with less overall effort.

While 50% or higher profit can seem like a great deal, be sure you know exactly how much work you are getting yourself into. This often times mean you are paying for the hidden “fees” of:

  • up-front purchases
  • delivery fees
  • no fundraising support, resources, or tools
  • long-term contracts
  • low per-item profit
  • more work for you and your sellers

Check out the helpful infographic above to see how much a high, per-item profit can help you to maximize your fundraising goals!
