Fundraising is of vital importance to cheerleading squads, whether they're raising money to pay for new uniforms or trying to fund a trip to cheer camp. If you're a cheerleading veteran, you know how boring and redundant fundraising can be. Avoid the fundraising slump by making it fun with Fun"d"2Raise Cards. Find out why these cards are different from everything else you've tried before.

What exactly are Fun"d"2Raise cards?
In the simplest of terms, Fun"d"2Raise cards are scratch-off donation cards. Each card has 150 scratch-off stars and each one reveals an amount (between $0.75 and $3.00). Whoever scratches off one of the scratch-off stars agrees to pay whatever amount is revealed.

How is this different from other fundraising methods?
Using Fun"d"2Raise cards makes fundraising simple and fun! So many fundraising methods involve purchasing items and most people would rather donate than have to buy more wrapping paper they'll forget about in the closet or cookie dough that will just sit in the freezer. Each star amount amounts to $3 or less, which is a small enough amount for anyone to donate!

How is Fun"d"2Raise cards simpler than other fundraising methods?

You don't need to worry about delivering any products, sending in order forms, or repaying a portion of your collections to the fundraising company. On top of that, since the donation amount is $3 or less, forget having to cash in checks or process credit card transactions; collect all your donations in cash! Once you purchase and receive your Fun"d"2Raise cards, you're good to go.

How has fundraising changed over the years?
In the past few years, door-to-door fundraising has decreased. With the news of door-to-door sales scams and an increase in "No Solicitors" signs, the selling of items door-to-door is a thing of the past. Also, partly due to the economy, fewer people are willing to commit to buying pricey items or products they don't necessarily need. Now, it makes more sense to donate a few dollars as opposed to buying something for a higher price.

What groups or programs can benefit from Fun"d"2Raise?

If you're a squad at a high school, talk to school officials about promoting your fundraising at sports games and events.
