Fundraising may seem like a daunting task, but with the help of Electro Image, it can be easier than you think. We leverage our expertise in graphic design and professional printing to help you achieve your goal. Some goals require teamwork to achieve. Read on to discover how we joined forces with Inglemoor High School to raise funds for the Vikings high school football team in Seattle, Washington.
Football Fundraiser Success
Inglemoor High School had a demand for a printing solution when they decided to generate resources for their football team. As with any type of project, revenue generating projects can have many moving pieces that need to be simultaneously managed and coordinated. When Inglemoor decided to team up with us, we were able to alleviate the printing burden so the staff and students could focus on other tasks, such as reaching out to the local community’s food merchants to negotiate coupon deals.
If you haven’t ever used this fund-raising method, don’t feel overwhelmed. It just might be easier than you think. In fact, many restaurant chains, and service businesses frequently participate in similar community programs which makes it that much easier to get started. Common pizza chains and fast food franchises are accustomed to these types of projects, and they love these opportunities.
Why do they like offering these types of deals?
Well, there are two reasons. Firstly, merchant tickets allow a business to advertise free to the local community without impacting their advertising budget. From the merchant’s perspective, they see a free advertising opportunity when a high school organization chooses to print coupon tickets with their name on them. Secondly, they see coupons as an effective way to actually get customers through their doors. The customer who uses the coupon gets free food or a discount on their purchase, and the merchant makes a profit on items that were not discounted. Everybody wins. If you thought that finding merchants to participate in your next project would be an uphill struggle, think again.
Yet another advantage of a merchant ticket fundraising program is that it does not burden the parents and families of the high school. Other projects may require more involvement of the parents of the students. All that needs to be done is to distribute and sell the coupons. The club will not need to manage inventory like candy or cookie dough products, making merchant tickets an even more attractive option for your next project. With fewer overheads than other fundraisers, a merchant ticket program has fewer burdens than other fundraising solutions.
The local businesses in Seattle, Washington understood that this fundraising program was good for business, and choose to take advantage of the opportunity Inglemoor High School and Electro Image created together. We can help you design and print your ticket books to help create a superior product. All you need to do is rally the troops and engage the businesses in your community.
