SCHOOL BAND REAPS REWARDS FROM MATTRESS FUNDRAISERS
April 2, 2014
Providing a unique twist to fundraising, Custom Fundraising Solutions works closely with organizations to hold mattress fundraisers. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Custom Fundraising Solutions provided $2.5 million in donations in 2012. The company works closely with high schools, junior highs, and elementary schools, as well as other nonprofits seeking to earn money for special projects, equipment, or other needs.
In April 2013, the Manor High School Band in Central Texas chose a one-day mattress fundraiser to help fund equipment and travel expenses. Through the program, individuals were able to view 22 different types of mattresses and purchase a mattress at a significant discount of 30 percent to 60 percent under retail price. All marketing, sales, and delivery were handled for the school, which benefited from the proceeds. The non-traditional fundraising method reaped thousands of dollars for the Manor High School band. Other school groups across the country using this fundraising method include athletic boosters, high school chorus groups, show choir, and sports teams.
