This is the time of year that most of the Parent/Teacher groups elect their new Executive Board for the 2019-2020 school year. For those lucky souls, their summer will be anything but a vacation. They need to be ready to hit the ground running in August. Everything needs to be in place well before the rest of us drop the kids off for the First Day of School.
Your PTA and PTO do many beneficial things for your school. All of the PTA/PTO officers are volunteers, so they deserve a heart-felt Thanks from all of us. One of the many tasks that they perform is to provide money to the school for items and programs that have been cut out of the school’s budget. And the way they get this money is through fundraising.
In a typical school year, your PTA or PTO conducts several different fundraisers and some schools juggle more than a dozen different events. Most of these fundraisers are very labor-intensive (car washes, carnivals, etc.), but these also raise a lot of money.
Just to balance things out, your PTA or PTO needs some easy fundraisers that don’t take a lot of effort. These tend to be “merchandise” sales of customized products (T-shirts, sports bottles, etc.).
Out of all the merchandise fundraisers, a custom car magnet might be the easiest and the highest profit of all. Most schools double their money with car magnets and many even get a triple return or higher. I don’t know about you, but I have dozens of T-shirts that I don’t wear and are now in my rag box in the garage. And sports bottles? I don’t like the chemical taste they leave in the water. But a car magnet? Sign me up. Most people love to put magnets on their car. They like letting the world know how they feel, and their car has become a mobile billboard.
Getting started on your fundraising car magnet is easy; just give us a call at 760-743-6340 and one of our talented designers will work with you from “conception through completion”. Your new car magnet from ARC Marketing will be perfect.
