PaperFunds was created by Joe and Sam Kuipers, a husband and wife team with three kids of their own in schools and sports. They created PaperFunds in response to a growing frustration among parents who have been asked to overpay for cookie dough, wreaths, wrapping paper, candy bars, and other unhealthy or unwanted products to benefit their local schools and other organizations.
All of these other fundraising concepts share two common characteristics. One, they earn profits by overcharging the supporters and sharing some of that “overage” with the organization, and two, they sell products that no one really needs or wants. In both cases, the sale leaves the supporters feeling exploited and reluctant to repeat their participation. The fundraiser’s success is based solely on the enormous good will of the supporters who are willing to be exploited for a good cause.
It doesn’t have to be that way…
PaperFunds sells two things everybody needs and wants at a fair price while earning strong profits for your organization.
At about $1 per roll of paper towels and $.29 per roll of toilet tissue (or $.52 for the Big Roll), your supporters will save money on something they are planning to buy anyway, and will be happy to repeat the sale during your next drive. This is a practical fundraiser.
Why Paper Towels and Toilet Paper?
Paper towels and toilet tissue are disposable necessities that supporters need and use repeatedly. They are nonperishable commodities that people often keep in large supply and won’t mind reordering, allowing PaperFunds fundraisers to be repeated throughout the year. Additionally, PaperFunds products do not promote obesity in children or adults like some fundraising products.
Instead of asking someone to buy something they don’t need, you only need to ask them to change brands for something they plan to buy anyway.
This is a much easier sale.
