New for 2021, we’re offering units the opportunity to “Fund Your Adventure” by selling Entertainment® Digital Memberships. This fundraiser takes the place of our previous Camp or Adventure Card sales.
The Entertainment® Digital Membership Fundraiser is completely CONTACTLESS using a powerful platform called Raisy™. Raisy™ allows you to VIRTUALLY reach out to your own network across the U.S. and Canada by email, text, and social media. Friends and family can support your fundraiser in a few clicks.
The Entertainment® Digital Membership sells for $20 and provides a mutually beneficial WIN-WIN-WIN solution:
WIN: Groups raise necessary funds
WIN: Support local businesses
WIN: Families save on things they do everyday
Best of all, there is no money for you to collect or product to pass out. Supporters will pay on Raisy™ and receive their Digital Membership via email!
Units receive a 35% commission on each sale ($7 per Digital Membership). Unit commissions will be distributed beginning in June.
