Fundraising Expectations

This year, the fundraising expectations (in profits, not sales) are:

$750

Any profits you earn over and above the base amount ($750) will be added to your student’s individual travel & tour expenses and clothing account.

Profits you have accumulated will be updated regularly and viewable in your Charms account.

We’ve offered several options to choose from, or you can use the fundrasing bond cheque you supplied to the school at the beginning of the season to buy out.

You can participate in any or all of the fundraisers you choose. 

Profit percentages:

• Co-op Grocery cards – 9%
Safeway/Sobeys grocery cards 6%
• Spring and Fall fundraiser products range from 15-30%

Raffle tickets – $8 for each ticket sold

 

Fundraiser Information

Selling Period: March 15 – April 17

Order deadline: April 18

Product Distribution: May 12

When you share the fundraiser with your friends and family, please ask them to send a copy of their receipt to you,
as you’ll need to know what has been ordered under your YC student’s name so you can deliver it.

On May 12, you are responsible for picking up the items purchased under your child’s name and delivering them to your customers.

Your orders will be compiled and your profits updated on your Charms account within a few weeks of the fundraiser close.

The two top-selling students will win a gift basket with chocolate, gift cards and other treats!

FUNDRAISING Q&A

When will the fundraising bond cheques be cashed?

Answer:  January 1 and mid-May, after the last grocery card order has gone through.

If families haven't raised half of the $750 by January 1, but have raised a good portion, will their first bond cheque still be cashed?
Yes – they will swap cheques for the amount the families are short.
If the school cashes the parents cheques at the end of December because they did not fund raise in the first half of the year and then the families raise $750 in the second half of the year, do they get their $375 back?

Yes they would, or they can leave it in to go towards travel and/or clothing.

The Friends of The Young Canadians is a non-profit organization that raises funds for the Young Canadians School of Performing Arts. Funds are used to support many initiatives planned for this year, including boot camp, performance workshops, guest instructors, specialty training and other events to benefit and enhance the members’ experience.

If you live out of town and aren't able to buy products, you have the option of making a direct donation, which can go towards the student you'd like to support.

Do you know of a great product that we could offer for a future fundraiser?
Let us know! We like to buy direct from the vendors if possible.
