Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 9, 2006
Smart Circle Fundraising™, a subsidiary of Smart Circle International™, the worldwide leader in referral marketing, has launched its Turnkey Fundraising Management Program to support local and national merchants seeking opportunities to actively support community fundraisers. The Turnkey Fundraising Management Program assists merchants that lack the resources and experience necessary to effectively manage their own fundraising program.
“Through our Turnkey Fundraising Management Program, merchant sponsors have the opportunity to support the community, generate positive brand associations, and drive sales through professionally managed fundraising programs,” said Joseph Heilner, vice president of Smart Circle Fundraising. “While many companies strive to help community fundraisers, they just don’t have the organizational resources to establish a meaningful program.”
Smart Circle Fundraising handles all of the logistical work of a fundraising program, from soliciting the community organizations in need of raising funds to designing and producing collateral materials to organizing and coordinating the campaign between the merchant sponsor and fundraising organization.
“Many of our advertising partners receive requests from local schools and religious organizations, but have had to turn them away because they do not have an existing fundraising plan,” said Heilner. “The new Turnkey Fundraising Management Program allows Smart Circle professionals to design a program that aligns with the goals of both the merchant sponsor and the fundraising organization.”
Smart Circle Fundraising’s Management Program is available throughout the U.S. and Canada to merchants such as pizza and restaurant chains, professional sports teams, movie theaters, golf courses, day spas and more.
