This year, I have partnered with Savers® and Value Village™ to share their FUNDrive® program. Through the program, your decluttered bags from the 40 BAGS IN 40 DAYS Challenge raise funds for your nonprofit organization or school. How awesome is that?
Since talking about this program on our recent Facebook live, I’ve heard from several of you who have already done a FUNDrive for your Cub Scouts, schools, and other nonprofits.
The FUNDrive program is simple and has already helped many organizations in a big way. You combine efforts with others in your church, school, sports team, or other nonprofit to collect donations of used goods and Savers will buy your items. The proceeds going to the organization you are a part of.
You can do a FUNDrive® in three simple steps:
- Schedule: Set up your FUNDrive with the help of the easy online toolkit.
- Collect: Collect gently used clothing and household items.
- Get Paid: Savers/Value Village pays your organization directly to purchase the items.
If you get 10 friends to collect 40 bags each, your nonprofit would earn around $1,000 (based on a typical FUNDrive, the weight of 400 13-gallon sized bags generates around $1,000).
