Dallas Academy Parents Club

School car magnets for fundraising purposes is the “go-to” money maker for thousands of schools across America. The Dallas Academy Parents Club (DAPC) is the parent group which supports the student activities at Dallas Academy. The DAPC is dedicated to fostering the academic and personal growth and success of Dallas Academy students by providing volunteer and financial support. DAPC supports academic activities, social and special clubs, and athletic programs for the benefit of the students. By collaborating with the Dallas Academy trustees, administration, faculty and staff, DAPC seeks to continuously improve the Dallas Academy learning environment to allow all students to achieve at their highest level.

The DAPC supports themselves with parent donations. All parents are automatically enrolled as part of the annual tuition, but higher levels of membership are available. For instance, they are giving away their car magnet if you upgrade to their “Bronze Membership” level.

Custom car magnets for PTA fundraising should be a big part of your PTA’s school funding. There aren’t any other fundraising items that can do what a custom car magnet can do. They create a tremendous amount of “school pride” and raise tons of money.

Heritage Elementary School, in Madison Alabama is a public school serving grades K-6 and is in the Madison City School District. There are 10 other schools in the district.

Here is the Mission Statement of the school (taken from their website): The mission of Heritage Elementary is to prepare our students socially, emotionally, academically, and physically for future success. The motivated and compassionate faculty and staff at Heritage, in cooperation with parents and the community, will strive to encourage the unique gifts and talents of every learner while focusing on strengthening character, independence and a love of learning.

The Heritage Elementary PTA had us design a fundraising car magnet for their school. The PTA is big on fundraisers, and currently runs a few others in addition to selling the car magnets that we designed and printed for them. They conduct “Restaurant Nights”, they run a “Box Tops for Education” program and they have program running with Publix where qualifying purchases will have a percentage of the amount spent given back to the school.

All of these fundraising programs will make a little money for the school, and added together, all of these fundraisers will contribute quite a bit. But of all the fundraisers, only the custom car magnet will create school spirit, and provide a tangible gift to the person donating money to the PTA.

Car magnets should be a part of every school’s fundraising efforts. They are fun, the students and parents love them, and they can raise lots of money for your programs!

Getting your very own custom magnet is easy. Just contact ARC Marketing at 760-743-6340 and describe your school to us (mascot, colors, etc.). We’ll have our excellent design-team whip up a preliminary design ASAP. Easier yet, just fill out our Virtual Magnet Request form, answer a few simple questions, and before you know it, your free Virtual Magnet will be sent to your in-box. Click here to get started!

Car Magnets for PTA and PTO Fundraising

Fundraising car magnets for PTA’s and PTO’s are a critical piece of the fundraising puzzle faced by every Parent Group. A custom car magnet will increase school spirit as well as increase your revenue.

By far, the biggest category of sales at ARC Marketing is PTA and PTO Fundraising. With all of the budget cuts, it is no wonder why the Parent Groups have gotten involved. After all, with the massive funding gaps that exist in school districts all across America, the private sector had to get involved.

Most Parent/Teacher groups hold numerous fundraisers throughout the year. They raise money for vital projects and for fun projects, but all fundraising is conducted with the goal of helping their school.

There is an endless list of possible fundraisers available, but only a few raise significant money. And even fewer leave you or the kids with any self-esteem (think about selling big chocolate bars door-to-door; ugh).

How about selling a custom car magnet, designed specifically for your school by a professional artist, and printed on the highest quality magnetic material, using the best UV resistant inks… WINNER! And you don’t need to go out of your way to sell them. Once you put one on your car, and the cars of the other PTA Board Members, everyone will see them and everyone will want one. They practically sell themselves! It’s just the opposite with the candy fundraisers. You need to work too hard just to convince someone to buy a 5,000 chocolate bar or barrel of caramel corn. No Thanks!

Summer is here and that means your school has new Parent/Teacher Group Officers. It does not matter if you are with a PTA, PTO, PTSO or one of the many other types of Parent/Teacher groups… your new Officers have just been elected and now it is time to get to work.

One of the most important jobs for your Parent/Teacher Group is fundraising. Your group will be raising money so that you can help your school purchase certain things that were not in the school budget. If you are with an Elementary School Parent Group, you could be raising money for playground equipment or safety vests for street-crossing attendants. Maybe you are with a middle school, you could be helping pay for equipment for after-school sports. And if  you are with a high school, you could be helping to pay for prom expenses.

It doesn’t matter what grade your kids are in; their schools need your financial help more than ever in 2015. School budgets are razor-thin and the things we used to take for granted are no longer paid for by the schools and school districts.

Custom car magnets from ARC Marketing allow you to raise a significant amount of money while increasing school spirit. If your Parent/Teacher group sells only 250 magnets, it would be almost impossible not to double your money. Sell more, make more. It’s that simple.

ARC Marketing is known for designing and producing America’s most creative, most durable car magnets. Hundreds of schools trust their most important fundraiser to ARC Marketing every year. We invite you to join our long list of satisfied schools and let us design a car magnet that will put your annual fundraising effort on the fast-track. It’s easy to get started! Just call us at 760-743-6340 or visit our website at www.arcmktg.com.

Car Magnets are HOT

School Car Magnets for Fundraising

Car magnets are hot, and it’s easy to see why! They make your message visible to your entire community. They also make amazingly easy fundraising items.

Here’s a classic example of a car magnet success story…

Meadowbrook Elementary School PTA was looking for a new fundraiser. In the past, they had tried selling magazine subscriptions, chocolate bars, wrapping paper and similar items to raise money for their programs. All of the money raised from these fundraisers went to the school for new playground equipment, vests for the crossing guards, gifts for teachers and many other good causes. The sales usually meant that the children had to go door-to-door to sell these items. Obviously, this is not the safest way to conduct a fundraiser. In addition, almost everyone had a very good reason for not buying those products… “We already subscribe to every magazine we want”, or “I’m on a diet; I don’t want chocolate in the house!” This type of fundraiser was becoming unpopular and obsolete.

Then the Meadowbrook PTA had a brilliant idea. They had seen other schools and groups that had car magnets designed specifically for them. They searched the internet and found several companies that offered custom car magnets, and one of them was ARC Marketing. Most of the other websites made it difficult to get basic information, and even more difficult to figure out how to get started on their new car magnet. The ARC Marketing website was clear, concise and made it very easy to get started (just click on the Free Virtual Magnet button

Clicking on the Virtual Magnet button was the beginning of a very easy process to get their new magnet designed. Answering a few simple questions was all that was needed for an artist at ARC Marketing to create the first “Virtual Magnet”. This first Virtual Magnet was created and emailed directly to the president at the Meadowbrook PTA. After showing the Virtual Magnet to the board members, they requested a few changes via email. Within an hour, the revised Virtual Magnet was emailed back to the president. One more simple change was requested by the PTA, and again, another Virtual Magnet was emailed to the president. The board unanimously agreed that this version of the new Meadowbrook Elementary car magnet was perfect!

 

The PTA ordered 500 car magnets at $1.55 each (with UPS shipping charges, the total came to $815.00). They sold them for $7.50 each (our suggested fundraising price is $5 each, but most schools sell them for $6, $7.50 or $10 each). After selling all 500 magnets, the total amount collected came to $3,750. Subtract the $815 cost and they made a profit of almost $3,000!

Can you think of another fundraising item that returns a profit like that?

Here’s another benefit of using car magnets instead of big chocolate bars… awareness. Now, 500 cars have the Meadowbrook Elementary School car magnet on it. It is almost impossible to drive around town and not see dozens of cars with the Meadowbrook Elementary magnet.

Want another benefit? Car Magnets do not have a “shelf life”. If you have unsold chocolate bars after your fundraiser, they go bad after a certain date. Any unused magnets can sit in a storeroom until the next school year (if you have any leftovers), and they will be as good as the day we delivered them to you. Let us help you make your next fundraiser a success!

And car magnets are not just for schools…

Little League Baseball Teams make a lot of money with car magnets, as do Youth Football Teams, Swim TeamsDance Schools,Elementary SchoolsMiddle SchoolsHigh Schools, you name it.

We make car magnets for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts.

We make car magnets for Church groups,YMCA and Kid’s Camps.

We make car magnets for Cancer Awareness,Autism Awareness and Epilepsy Awareness.

We make car magnets for Animal Shelters and Humane Societies.

In fact, I don’t think that there is a group in America that would not benefit from the revenue and awareness created by a custom car magnet from ARC Marketing.

Your group can benefit too, and it is so easy. Just click here to get started on your Free Virtual Magnet.
