Choose the Right Fundraising CompanySelecting the right fundraising company is not as easy as it may seam. The Web has thousands of companies that offer fundraising products. How do you pick the right fundraising company?
Many websites out there are not actually fundraising companies with a proven track record. A lot of times you’ll find that the website is simply a person offering ‘cash and carry‘ products for you to sell, which is not always in your best interest. An of course, you need to pay for most products in advance with your credit card! You need a fundraising company you can trust; one that has a proven track record of successful product fundraising and is committed to helping you raise the most amount of profit with the least amount of risk and out-of-pocket expenses.
