Question: Who Rates Fundraising Companies

Can anyone tell me how the different fundraising companies on the PTO Yellow Pages receive that recommendation? Is it simply advertising or do they actually meet some criteria?

Hi Jewels - The yellow pages are basically advertising, like the yellow pages in your phone book. They are not rated in there. The YPs are a great place to get ideas and make contacts with companies you want to learn more about, but it's still important to do your normal research and reference checking and the like.

Celebrating HOME Fundraising is a trusted member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA). Their selection criteria is listed on their website as follows: Direct selling members are network marketing companies that manufacture or deal in goods or services intended to reach the consumer through a personal sales contact. Direct selling members of the association have pledged to abide by and uphold the provisions of DSA's Code of Ethics which is designed to protect both members of the direct selling field salesforce and the ultimate consumer. Each direct selling member company has completed a one-year pending period during which time the company's policies and procedures are reviewed to ensure compliance with the DSA Code and with the laws and regulations that affect direct selling companies. Current and potential field salesforce members and consumers can be assured the service they receive will be top notch - a promise guaranteed through each company's pledge to the Code of Ethics. Hope this helps, Kristy
