ABC Fundraising realizes that many groups do not have sufficient funds to begin their fundraiser. In fact, this is the reason most groups are fundraising in the first place. This is why we have created a
"No Money Up Front" policy with 3 payment options.
All order-taker fundraisers are always FREE to start. The following policy is related to the Scratch Cards®, Spinners® and Discount cards.
*Option A: No Money Up Front via Check By Phone
ABC Fundraising has recently been approved to take check payments by phone or fax. In accordance with the rules of the United States Federal Government, ABC Fundraising will need to record the phone call while the check information is given.
ABC Fundraising can deposit your check 30 days from your delivery date.
If you prefer, you may choose to do a check by fax. We will provide the form to fill out and fax back.
*BONUS - If you would like Abc Fundraising® to cash the check at time of purchase you will receive a total of 15% Extra of the product you order (Free Scratch &Help® cards, Spinners® or ABC Fundraising® Cards)
Option B: No Money Up Front with a Purchase Order
Simply fax the purchase order to ABC Fundraising and we will send you a bill which will be due within 30 days from your delivery date. Our fax number is 1.888.246-2487.
*This method is used for public schools and government run organizations with an official purchase order system.
Option C: Financing with Any Major Credit Card
*BONUS: Receive a total of 20% extra of the product you order (Free Scratch & Help®, Spinners® or 15% for the ABC Fundraising® Discount Card!
You may choose to finance your fundraiser with any major credit card. ABC Fundraising will charge your card at the time of purchase, and you will simply pay your credit card bill when you receive your monthly credit card statement. This will give you plenty of time (in most cases, 30 days) to run your fundraiser before having to pay your bill from your credit card company.
*There is a 1 time mandatory up front administration fee of $20.00 for Option A. Ask your representative for details. ABC Fundraising will provide you with 1 free Scratch & Help Booklet worth $100 to offset this cost. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
All Spinners or Scratch & Help orders under 10 must be paid for up front with a credit card or a money order and custom coupon changes are $50 for either product. Orders under 10 do not qualify for any promotional offers or bonuses for paying with a credit card. For Scratch & Help orders of less than five, we do not allow for customizing of the coupons and we do not print the organization’s name on the front of the booklets. We do not print logos on the "mini" scratch cards which may be offered at a discount at the time of your order.
Certain Restrictions May Apply for Option A or Option B.
The cost of custom coupons for Scratch and Help ($30) or Spinners ($50) must be paid for up front.
You may return 10% of your Scratch & Help cards or Spinners within 30 days of delivery. Free booklets can not be returned for credit and must be returned along with the 10% of your original order.
For The Discount Card Fundraiser we require a $500 deposit up front for option A and option C. If choosing option C the balance is due before the cards are shipped and you will receive 15% extra cards plus 1 Free Spinner for every 50 cards ordered.
For Option A you will have 21 days from delivery of your cards to pay the balance and will receive 10% Free cards plus 1 free Spinner for every 100 cards ordered.
The $500 deposit we require will cover our hard costs for contacting all the merchants to complete and ship your cards which may take up to 4-6 weeks from the time we receive your merchant wish list.
You will be able to proof the card before it is shipped for any errors. We will also allow up to 3 changes to the discounts on the card if you provide new merchants for us to contact. If we are unable to get 3 other merchants to give discounts, the card will be shipped with the original offers.
Due to the custom nature of the discount card we will accept a maximum of 10% of the cards to be returned within 21 days of delivery. Free cards can't be returned for credit and must be returned along with the 10% of your original order.
We ask that you provide a minimum of 20 local merchants on your merchant wish list to contact so we can create the best possible card. We guarantee that all discounts provided on the card will be a higher value than offers that a merchant would typically provide in a newspaper advertisement.
If for any reason we are unable to provide a minimum of 10 offers for your card as described above you will receive a refund of your deposit. Thank You!
