Otis Spunkmeyer® Fundraising now offers schools and groups a flexible new prize program to increase participation and items sold per event. The new program is easy for sponsors, fun for sellers and spurs participation and fundraising profits with flexible and appealing prizes.
“The new fundraising prize program will increase the excitement surrounding selling,” says Liz Rayo, director of business development for Otis Spunkmeyer Fundraising. “Sellers are motivated not only by reaching their fundraising goal, but by earning personal prizes, too.”
One major benefit is that the prize program is so easy for sponsors to implement. The program is easy to set up, and the flexible online process makes it simple for sponsors to develop their own program and choose a prize category that best fits their group—active, music, or games. Or, they can create their own unique program by mixing and matching prizes from different categories.
Sellers are motivated by being able to choose their prizes, which add excitement and encourage friendly competition. Colorful silicone bracelets that are delivered with the fundraising event kick-off materials can be given to every person who sells one item to start off. Additional bracelets can be awarded to sellers who sell more items in whatever increments the group determines. With multiple different colored bracelets, sellers will want to collect them all, further driving sales.
For motivation past the silicone bracelets and regular prizes, sponsors can purchase Power Prizes, which are higher value items such as a Video Chat Camera, Portable Speakers, and Active mesh and cooler bag. These prizes can be used as part of a drawing for all participants who sell a certain number of items.
The prize flyers can be printed out for the group’s chosen prize program category. Hand these sheets out to everyone in the group so that sellers can keep track of which prizes they’re striving for. At the end of the fundraiser, collect the prize sheets and record the names and corresponding prizes on the Order Tally form. After submitting the information, sponsors will receive an electronic “Otis Bucks” gift card, which they can use to order the prizes at http://www.pac-otisfundraising.com.
