Starting a Fundraiser
Our giving platform makes it possible for anyone to run a successful fundraiser.
What type of fundraiser should I run?
Boon Supply offers two types of merchandise fundraising options that make it easy for people to get involved and give back to their communities. In order to help you make the right selection, we ask you one question during registration - do you require tracking of your sales and providing prizes to your sellers? Depending on your answer, you will be directed to the correct fundraising website to sign up. Both fundraising options generate 40% payout to the organization. All orders are entered online and shipped directly to the customer, so you do not have to worry about distribution.
Is there a minimum fundraising goal?
You set the amount you wish to raise and Boon Supply can help you reach your fundraising goals. If your organization received catalogs at the beginning of your campaign, the minimum requirement is to sell at least $10 per catalog shipped. Boon Supply will provide catalogs to existing accounts that sold at least $5,000 on their last campaign. Catalogs will be free of charge if the minimum is met, otherwise a Participation Minimum Charge of $0.75 per catalog shipped will be deducted from the fundraiser's payout.
Catalogs are available for purchase at $10 for a pack of 20 for accounts with retail sales less than $5,000 on their last fundraiser. If your fundraiser is enrolled in our free prize program, the price of the catalogs is $15 for a pack of 20 which includes our prize flyer and an envelope.

I'm having trouble uploading an image on the fundraiser website.
The ideal image size for customized photos on your fundraiser page is is 1064 x 600. Before uploading, make sure the layout of your image is set to landscape, rather than portrait (a wider image rather than a taller image). If you are not able to successfully upload your image, or do not see this option on your dashboard, just send the image to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your fundraiser ID and we’ll set it up for you.
