What percentage of profit will my group receive?
The amount of profit an organization receives will depend on the brochure and prize program selected for the fundraiser; and, in some cases, the volume of sales. Profit on our various programs normally range from 40-50% of sales. We would be happy to discuss the profit potential of any program with you.

Do you have an on-line store?
Both our Gift Shopper and Magazine programs include an extensive on-line store where out-of-town relatives, etc., can shop: www.genevieves.com/ ; www.aphearst.com . Your organization will receive profit for anything ordered on your behalf, and the student will receive credit towards prizes/incentives. The on-line store is open year round. So, you can begin and complete your sale, yet still receive profits throughout the entire year. Profit checks are processed and mailed twice a year.

When is payment required?
In-Hand Sales: Generally, credit accounts can be set up, with 20-30 days dating, so that you need not pay for your products until after you have completed your sale. Non-school accounts outside of our local service area may require pre-payment by Check or Credit Card (with Paypal). We would be happy to discuss the options with you.

Pre-Collect Order-Takers: For School accounts, payment is due 20 days from order date; all other accounts: payment with order. Since you collect in advance for these sales, you don't expend any funds until after your sales are collected and in your bank account.
