If you prefer competition and motivation in your fundraiser, Rebates with Friends lends itself well to that. Your FundShopping fundraising account has 4 membership spaces set up directly beneath your school's membership which can be used to set up 4 teams (referred to in Rebates with Friends as Cash Back Parties). You, then, can divide your classes or students into 4 parties (teams). Have a host teacher from each party join using the school's Invitation Link and the rest of the teachers in that party join using their host's link. Each teacher can then use their team Invitation Link or their own personal Invitation Link to invite parents, family and friends and their invites become members of their party. You can then let the 4 parties compete for new members who use FundShopping for their online purchases.
Remember, the school only makes a commission from online purchases of their FundShopping members, so encourage everyone you invite to not only sign up but to also shop. You can then reward members who sign up members who make an online purchase through FundShopping.
â–º Give an award for the party with the most members who join and shop. (You can also give 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards.)
â–º Give an award for the class with the most members who join and shop. (Again you can give place awards.)
â–º Give an award for the individual with the most members who join and shop. (You can also give place awards, i.e. 1st-3rd, or top individuals in each party.)
â–º Give an award for each party who reaches a set goal of members who join and shop.
â–º Give an award for each class who reaches a set goal of members who join and shop.
â–º Give an award for each individual who reaches a set goal of members who join and shop. (Add levels of achievement with increasingly greater awards.)
You can get local businesses to donate the awards (gift cards, merchandise, etc.) used for motivation. Even though the promotion for signing up members is for a set time period, your school earns commission on purchases through the FundShopping website all year long, year after year.
