Should we establish a fundraising goal?
Knowing how much money you need to raise has the following benefits:
- Helps with the decision of which Boyer product to use
- Helps with the decision of how many cases to order
- Helps to motivate participants in the campaign
What should the timing of the campaign be?
A fundraising campaign can be run almost any time. Generally, if the campaign is to raise money for a team or group activities, it is best to run the campaign at the beginning of the season. This is when participants and enthusiasm is typically highest and your results should reflect this.
How long should the campaign be?
The length of the campaign can vary depending on your objectives and the motivation of the fundraisers, but fundraisers don't have to be long to be successful. Typically, a campaign that runs 2 to 4 weeks can be very effective. By setting a specific beginning and ending date of your campaign, it is easier to generate and maintain enthusiasm. For best results, make sure the event is the primary focus of attention.
Should we have a campaign leader?
It's important to have a leader that will stay motivated until the end of the campaign. They should be organized and have good communication skills to ensure everyone is kept informed and energized. For larger groups of young people it is desirable to have adult volunteers to assist the leader. The assistants can help in receiving and distributing the chocolate. It is most important to have one person responsible for collecting the money.
Should we sell Straight packs or Variety packs?
You should have the choice of selling either Straight packs, which contain only one flavor of product, or Variety packs, which have several flavors included.
- Variety packs are well suited to fundraising sales in the office or work area
- They offer a variety of flavor choices that appeal to a wider variety of personal preferences
- Straight pack cases are well suited for selling door to door in the neighborhood because buyers have an easier decision to make
How much product should I order?
Depending on the campaign objective, there are a number of factors that can effect the amount of cases you can sell. Sports teams typically sell 1 to 5 carriers per participant. For a large school-wide campaign, an initial order of one carrier per participant is typical. The most important factors in determining how much product to order are the financial objective and the motivation of the participants. Please keep in mind that fundraising product is non-refundable.

How should I receive, store, and distribute the products?

Have the driver make note of any missing or damaged cases. If there are any issues, contact our Customer Service Department at (814) 944-9401.
If you are storing the chocolate prior to distributing it to the fundraisers, store it in a secure, cool and dry area- preferably below 72 degrees. Do not place it in a walk-in refrigerator. Do not store near a heat source such as a furnace, radiator, or windows.

Best location for distributing the product is a gymnasium, cafeteria, or any large area. Make sure notices are sent home for date and time of distribution.
