Three Fun and Safe Ways to Run Your School's Fundraiser

Gifts ‘N Things understands that 2020 is not your “normal” year. In an effort to make the students, staff, and volunteers feel safe, we are offering the three options below. In addition, we will waive the cancellation fee if you are unable to run the fundraiser for any reason.

Traditional Fundraising: School Delivery

  • Volunteers select dates, brochures, prizes, and incentives
  • Brochure packets are sent to the school
  • In-person or video kickoff for students
  • Students take home brochures and share with family and friends
  • Customers can pay for brochure purchases with a credit card using our “Mobile Pay” option
  • Students register online and share with family and friends via social media, email, and text
  • Students enter order form online –OR– return order form and money to the school
  • Orders are packed per student and shipped directly to the school

Hybrid Fundraising: Home Delivery

  • Volunteers select dates, brochures, prizes, and incentives
  • Brochure packets are sent to the school
  • Video kickoff for students
  • Students take home brochures and share with family and friends
  • Customers can pay for brochure purchases with a credit card using our “Mobile Pay” option
  • Students register online and share with family and friends via social media, email, and text
  • Students enter order form online –OR– return order form and money to the school
  • Orders are packed per student and shipped directly to the students home

Can be run so there is only 1 touch point in school: Brochure distribution. Handing out the brochure has always resulted in larger school sales. Families can enter their order form online and orders can be sent directly to student’s homes.

Online Fundraising: Home Delivery

  • Volunteers select dates, brochures, and incentives
  • Parent letter is emailed to students
  • Students register online and share with family and friends via social media, email, and text
  • Orders are shipped directly to the customers home

Online Fundraising can be combined with Traditional or Hybrid Fundraising for schools that have both students in the classroom and students studying online from home.

Example: If you have 500 students in your school and 300 are in the classroom (even for a few days a week) we can send 300 brochures to the school for them to take home and run a traditional or hybrid fundraiser. For the 200 students studying online from home, you email them the parent letter/email for the online fundraising option.
