Fundraising for Schools

Let’s eliminate the fundraising programs that don’t work and do something NEW, EASY, PROFITABLE, RISK-FREE, and is FUN for the school and the community.

Frustrated selling cookie dough, wrapping paper, or event books? This may work for some schools, but many PTO’s find that these programs are:

TIME-CONSUMING
Requires Paperwork
Needs Volunteers
Requires Storage
Collating Name with Orders

FINANCIAL RISK
Big Initial Investment
Minimal Order Requirements
Products are Stolen or Accidentally Discarded
Unsold Products, What do you do with them?

FAILS
No Marketing Material
Limited to Students Only

PROBLEMS
Not Fun for the Kids
Product Doesn’t Meet Family Needs
Requires Distribution of Products
Requires Advance Planning

This father of two boys understands that PTO parents don’t have time to waste.

Successful PTO’s eliminate non-profitable programs and do NEW, EASY, PROFITABLE, RISK-FREE programs that are FUN  while generating more money, quicker, and with less hassle.

The comedy, choreography, and interactivity of Dale’s school show send children into creative fun overdrive – which, after all, is the goal of the PTO! The air is filled with children’s laughter as they sit, watching Dale’s co-star’s reaction as Dale inflates a balloon through their head, making for a priceless moment.

Parents appreciate the PTO’s hard work to bring creative programs like Dale’s to their school. We created an experience that makes going to a school fundraiser fun for students and the community by combining PTO’s efforts.

A photo opportunity after the show captures this fun moment for everyone involved as parents huddle around the large balloon sculptures created during the show.

This Illinois entertainer learned from world-class jugglers, unicyclists, magicians, clowns, balloonists, fire-eaters, theatrical entertainers, and vaudevillians. “I did not realize at the time how lucky I was to be working with such talented people and the skills and techniques that were freely taught to me,” said Dale. “I have used all my entertainment skills over the years but have decided I would rather be a Master of one form of entertainment than a jack-of-all-trades. So I became a master balloonist.”

“Awesome program!” Crete Elementary

“One of our best fundraising programs!” Fernway Elementary

 “I would prefer to spend money on a show over wrapping paper or cookie dough that I always end up throwing away” Kristi Rios, Parent

 “I hate doing product fundraisers where the family funds my kid’s school. Family buys it out of obligation, not as a need. A show is a better option. ” Jessica Cronin, Parent

How To INCREASE Revenue

YOU ESTABLISH TICKET PRICE


Fundraising for a purpose/need is an essential thing in your students’ minds. Defining an apparent reason you’re fundraising makes it easier for kids and parents to rally around the event.  Dale will work with you to make sure you have a clear message to the students and parents. 

Let’s put a twist on this year’s fundraising:

How it Works…

SELECT A DATE & TIME FOR THE FUNDRAISER and TEXT Dale to schedule a complimentary NO COST planning meeting. This starts the process while you finalize the program with the school and the PTO.

BOOK THE SHOW – this simple process finalizes the date, time, location, show requirement and insurance needs.

WE SEND YOU FREE MARKETING MATERIALto help make marketing the show easy to students, families and the local community. Detailed handouts will explain where students can buy tickets as well as the show information.

We provide images for marketing on Facebook and social media to help promote the show.

Fundraising for a School

STEP-BY-STEP MARKETING – We provide you with proven techniques to drive ticket sales using posters, flyers, emails, text messaging, phone chains, and PA announcements. All designed for your event.

SELL TICKETS – We will provide tickets with all the information you need to print or set up electronic sales, which can be completed on smartphones. Dale will work with you to help you get the maximum ticket sales in school and through local businesses outlets.

THE SHOW! – Sit back and relax as a veteran entertainer performs a family-friendly show that will have the kids and parents laughing and the PTO bank account growing from ticket sales proceeds.

UNFORGETTABLE PHOTO OPPORTUNITY – after the show, families can take pictures with the giant balloon sculptures, giving the school added support through social media Facebook postings.

MARKETING AFTER THE SHOW – Imagine the smile on the Principal’s face as they walk into their school, and on display are these large balloon sculptures for staff and family to admire, generating more talk about the great work the PTO is doing for your school.

LASTLY, CONCESSION STAND SALES – The school keeps 100% of concession stand sales, adding to the bottom line total for your fundraiser program.

COST: 50% OF TICKET SALES NOT EXCEEDING $1,500 –  buyout @ $1,200


Let’s Do The Math and See Exactly How Your School can Earn More Money:
You sell 500 tickets at $10.00 earns $5,000.00

Bonus! If you toss in the concession sales, i.e., popcorn 100 bags at $2.00, plus soda at $1.00 per can, you can generate an additional $300.00. 

After paying for the show, the PTO earns a net profit of $3,800.00 in one day! One 45-minute show. Now, this is using moderate numbers. Keep in mind ticket sales are not limited to the school but the entire community. So ticket sales can exceed school size. Plus, if your gym can hold a large crowd, the potential is so much more significant to make even more money for your school.

SHARING THE RISK WITH YOU!


If ticket sales fall short of the $1,500 – WE SPLIT THE TICKET SALES. If the PTO only sells 200 tickets at $10 – we split the ticket sales. You make money and get Dale’s show at a bargain price.

If you know that you can generate a large crowd, consider doing a buyout and earn your school an additional $300.00.
