We’ve finished totting up our totals and commission cheques are making their way to our wonderful partners who have participated in our fundraising scheme during this, our TWELFTH (and best ever!), year.
We’ve had a brilliant response from our partners, including those who have been members of our scheme for years as well as all of our lovely newcomers who have joined us over the last twelve months.
Your commission cheque is based on orders that we received between 1st October 2015 and 30th September 2016 where your unique fundraising number was quoted and will be awarded at either our basic rate of 15% (for schools, nurseries, and PTAs who have registered as members of our fundraising scheme) or our boosted rate of 30% (for members who have added a link to their website).
We hope that you are happy with your commission total and that your cheque will be a welcome contribution to whatever fundraising projects and goals you are striving to achieve.
If, however, you’re disappointed with the amount that you’ve got (or that you’ve received our basic rate of commission rather than our boosted rate), we highly recommend taking a trip to the Fundraising Section of our website and taking a look at our Fundraising Guide and, in particular, our Booster Plan.
Our Booster Plan was created based on our own experiences of running a commission scheme as well as feedback from existing partners and provides schools and PTAs with a list of simple (and free!) things that they can do to boost the amount of commission they earn. For example:
- Add a link to your school or PTA website and boost your commission rate to 30%
- Request free parent leaflets to hand out to parents to make them aware of the scheme
- Request free posters to put up around the school
Visit our Booster Plan page to find out how you can improve on this year’s commission earnings, use our Linking Information page to find out how to add a link to your website (or let us know that you’ve added a link), take a look through our “Really Useful Downloads” page, or visit our School Requests page to order free Parent Leaflets.
We will be despatching all of our commission cheques THIS WEEK, so if you DON’T receive your commission cheque within the next few weeks, please GET IN TOUCH with us as soon as you can to let us know.
