Fundraising Program for Nonprofit Organizations
Cushcity.com has a unique fundraising program for churches and nonprofit organizations. The fundraising program has two components: 1) Member purchases at a discount; 2) Selling Cushcity.com products as a fundraising campaign. The guidelines for the fundraising program are as follows:
Member Purchases at a Discount
1) Members of the church or nonprofit organization will be able to purchase products through Cushcity.com, either via the Internet (URL: http://www.cushcity.com) or by calling the toll-free number, 1-800-340-5454, at Cushcity.coms already discounted prices. All orders must be prepaid with either a credit card or check/money order.
2) In any given calendar quarter (Jan - March, April - June, July - September and October - December) collective sales by members of the organization will be documented and this information provided to the organizations designated representative within 30 days of the end of the quarter. If collective sales by the organization reach or exceed Three Thousand Dollars ($3,000) during any given calendar quarter, 5 percent of the gross sales will go directly to the organizations treasury. (For example, if members of the organization make purchases during the calendar quarter of $5,000, $250 will go directly to the organizations treasury.) A check in the amount of the 5 percent payment will be made payable to the organization and forwarded by Cushcity.com to the organization's designated address within 30 days of the end of the calendar quarter.
3) Cushcity.com will process all orders in a timely manner. Cushcity.com will keep an accounting of the gross sales made by the organization and provide this information to a designated representative within 30 days of the end of the calendar quarter.
4) Cushcity.com will provide a supply of catalogs to the organization, upon request, in a quantity corresponding with the size of the organizations national membership. However, these catalogs will be provided based on availability and must be distributed by the organization at its expense. (The catalogs can be distributed at organization meetings or via mail, and the method of distribution can be selected by the organization.)
In order to qualify for Cushcity.com's member discount fundraising program, the organization or church must have a membership of at least 200 persons. Membership can be local or nationwide.
Selling Cushcity.com Products
Cushcity.com has a number of products which make great fundraising items. These items include Christmas cards, calendars, journals, all-occasion greeting cards and other items which retail for between $8 and $15.00. Cushcity.com will also work with an organization on other items which it desires to sell. To qualify for this program, the organization must sell a minimum of 50 units to receive the discounted rate of 30%. All fundraising items must be prepaid, however, the organization may order in groups of 50 as it sells the product.
If you are interested in either component of Cushcity.com's fundraising program, please call Cushcity.com customer service at 1-800-340-5454 and ask for Gwen Richardson, Web Site Manager.
