Question: Fundraising Percentages

We are looking at different fundraising options. If we sell a product, we keep X% of sales and the Fundraising Company keeps Y%. What is a typical X Y split? I know its different for each but what is the average or typical split.

Hi there,
It's really hard to say what's typical because it depends on a number of things, including the type of products you 'd be selling and the contract put together with the vendor. So, we could say that for many product fundraisers, the range could be 30% to 40%, but, again, you could find companies that would offer lower and slightly higher than that.

Good luck!

AdMobile offers 50% in a unique fundraiser. Parents are burned out with selling, collecting money and distributing products. AdMobile created a unique idea where parents trade off doing all that for receiving a few text ads per day. It doesn't cost the fundraiser or parents any money. The money is made when ads are sold to businesses who like the idea of sending their coupons, promotions, etc. to the parents' mobile phones via text. Fundraisers don't even really sell the ad. They just refer the advertiser to AdMobile who manages the advertisers, collects the ad revenue and pays the fundraisers. All the fundraiser has to do is have their supporters subscribe via text and show an app about the advertising to advertisers.
