Instructions for Online Fundraising
We’re excited that you’ve elected to add the online campaign to your fundraiser! This will allow you to reach out through email and social media to your supporters across the country.
Each of your participants will get a link they can share online. When someone clicks that link, they are taken to their online store where all their purchases are tracked to your organization and even the individual participant in your group.
At the end of your fundraiser, we will provide your group a report of the online sales activity, and a check for 30% of the gross sales amount.
Q: How do we get signed up for the Online Fundraiser?
A: Let your Fundraising Specialist know you want to use this tool as part of your
Fundraising strategy, and provide them with an email address for each person who will sell online.
Q: Can we use the link we’ll get on Facebook too?
A: Absolutely, the link will work on all social media sites, as well as in emails.
Q: Do we need to provide email addresses for everyone selling, or can we just have one link for the whole group?
A: You can have a single link that all your participants use. In those cases though, we can only give you the group sales total, not a sub-total for each seller. When we send a different link to each seller, then we can track who sold how much individually.
Q: How do we get our links?
A: Once you provide your email address(es) to us, you will receive an email containing your link(s). You can immediately share it and start selling!
Q: Why do we fill out a w9?
A: With the online selling campaign, we send you a check for your organizations’
proceeds. When the amount is over $600 (heck yeah!) we’re required to send a 1099 to your organization.
Use this simple form to let us know which of your sellers wants to do online selling.
