Just like all other discount fundraiser cards, the profitable dinner and movie discount cards are a WIN-WIN-WIN fundraising idea.
This page is going to show you how to use them profitably for your fundraising!
Pretty simple hey, but awesome hey?!
Well, to decide whether this fundraising idea will work for you or your organization, all you have to ask is, "Do our supporters or potential customers enjoy eating out and going to movies?" - And, "Do they enjoy Discounts?"
If the answer is YES, then the dinner and movie discount cards are a fundraiser that will be successful and profitable for you!
As long as you organize and run it effectively...
Obviously one of your first steps when setting up your fundraiser will be to source your discount cards.
I'd would personally recommend you us the dinner and movie fundraiser cards from EFI.
For other Discount Card options take a look here.
Unfortunately these cards are only Supplied in America, so if you are non-US you will be unable to use them.
There are of course many other companies worldwide that provide discount fundraising cards and you can find local companies by doing a simple Google search below...
There are two ways of maximizing your sales and profits with dinner and movie discount cards...
You will need to recruit a sales team from your members, supporter, or students.
Firstly you must decide who your sales team will be.
This will of course totally depend on what your organization or cause is. So... will it be your immediate friends and family? Your fundraising committee? Your PTA association? Your youth group? Or all your kid's at school?
If you have a youth group, then it would definitely be an idea to get all your kid's involved!
But I would suggest that you get them to take orders for the cards, rather than actually take a heap of cards to sell...
They might very well lose or misplace the cards before they sell them!

Then prepare your team with a brief sales pitch guideline using the words "help" and "because".
"Hi, I'm from Middleton High School and we're selling discount dinner and movie fundraiser cards. We're doing this to help our school fundraise because we need to build a new school library. So do you like going out for dinner and going to the movies?"
Then motivate them and encourage them to sell as many cards as they can to friends, family and anyone interested!
Always consider using a sales incentive for extra motivation. This works really well with kids, and if you have really great prizes, the kids will go nuts to sell as many cards as they can.
In Jack Atwell's excellent eBook, "Let's Raise Money" (read my review), he talks about how important it is to have a sales incentive and how well it can boost your amount of sales and therefore your profits!
So a sales incentive is a really great idea!
Your other way of maximizing profits will be to advertise and market your fundraiser as much as possible.
Don't just leave it up to your sales team. You must let as many people know about your dinner and movie fundraiser cards as you can!
The more who know about the cards - that will save them money - the more cards you will sell. And therefore, the more money you will fundraise!
