It can be a challenge for restaurant marketing gurus to create fundrasing cards for a restaurant with products, graphics, etc. There are many moving parts and it takes work to coordinate such a project.
The benefits to an organization the fundraiser supports can be enormous. If you create your own card, you might collaborate with other business owners. If your goal is to acquire new customers, this is a great vehicle to open doors and gain more awareness where other marketing fails.
There have been a variety of fundraising cards I have used repeatedly to connect, support and give back to great communities. Before a fundraiser campaign, a restaurant reputation is important since those selling the fundraising cards will have more success if they are enthusiastic fans. There is nothing worse than having someone sell a fundraising card for a restaurant they believe is marginal.
The opportunity is not limited to holidays but during the season of gift giving, they are more popular. You might call them a "Super Gift Card" and put a bow on it.
If you feel the logistics of create a fundraising card is too difficult, reach out to a company such as www.peeltosave.com. I am not familiar with their company which means you will need to do your own due diligence.
