Just a little Guidance..
See the example to the right? If you need just a little guidance for setting up your fundraiser, follow this monthly example. It should help in clarifying the basic timeframe in which your products are delivered.
Simple steps to a successful fundraiser
Once your Fundraising Committee has been established and you have selected your Fundraising Coordinator, follow these simple steps to ensure your Homestyle Fundraiser is as successful as you would like it to be.
Book your delivery date.
Contact Homestyle on (07)4687 5000 / firstname.lastname@example.org to book your delivery date and delivery time (approx 5 weeks before your desired delivery date). We will then send you a starter kit which includes your free customer order forms and promotional posters. Booking confirmation emails with important information attachments will be sent through at the time of booking.
Distribute order forms
Send out your order forms to your customers and/or sellers. Set a date on the order forms for the return of money and orders to the chosen Fundraising Coordinator. Remember to allow a couple of days to collate the orders on the Pie Drive Calculator spread sheet.
When the orders are returned to the Coordinator, they are collated and entered onto the "Pie Drive Calculator" excel spread sheet. This will be emailed to you at the time of booking. Please ensure your computer/phone supports Microsoft Excel.
The Pie Drive Calculator is submitted to Homestyle via email email@example.com by 10am exactly one week prior to your delivery day. You will receive your invoice the same afternoon your order has been placed which will include the total amount payable. Check that your invoice is correct per product and advise Homestyle immediately if any changes are needed.
Payment is received by Homestyle Bake at least two working days prior to the day of delivery by electronic funds transfer or Credit Card unless prior arrangements have been made with our Fundraising Team. Proof of receipt for electronic payments must be shown to the driver and emailed through to the office before the delivery day. Credit card payments are available over the phone before delivery by calling (07) 4687 5045. (One full payment as per invoice for all payment types)
On delivery, our driver will arrange your products in the same order as your customer order form. He will check the products with the designated coordinator to ensure all products ordered have been supplied. Proof of receipt for all electronic payments must be shown to the driver prior at this point. Delivery fees may apply to Fundraising Drive deliveries made by Aurizon or Private transport companies. Please contact us for further information.
The order is then collated and packed by you and your Fundraising Team Volunteers into individual orders as per customer order forms. Now sit back, relax and enjoy your complimentary Morning or Afternoon Tea pack, these are supplied for orders over $500 invoice value. Remember "Every dollar raised today is one you did not have yesterday".
