Avon Fundraisers have been successfully helping individuals and groups raise funds for many years!
Is your group needing or already planning to hold a fundraiser in the near future? Yes or maybe? Then you should consider having an Avon Fundraiser!
As an Avon Independent Sales Representative, I offer organizations the opportunity to raise funds by selling Avon products. Its reputation for top-quality products opens doors and makes selling simple. Skin So Soft and Bubble Bath are just a few of America’s favorite products, and unlike gift wrap or candy bars, they are products the whole family needs.
With an Avon Fundraiser:
There’s minimal paperwork to complete.
There’s no up front merchandise for your group to buy.
Door-to-door selling isn’t needed. Participants can sell exclusively to families, neighbors, & friends and still produce a profitable fundraiser.
The average customer order is more than $15.
All products are backed by Avon’s satisfaction guarantee.
Your organization can have its money in hand in as little as 2-3 weeks.
Avon has been successfully involved in fundraisers all over the country with groups from daycares and sports leagues to religious institutes and schools. They have found that the brand-name recognition, the Avon Guarantee, and the fact that Avon has products for the entire family make for an extremely successful fundraiser. Fundraisers can be done for groups, organizations, and even for an individual.
What kind of materials would my group need to use?
Your group actually has a few options here for which products to sell, customizing the Avon Fundraiser to your group.
The 1st option is Avon’s fundraiser program, which has 3-5 different flyers your group can either choose from or combine. The kinds of flyers you can expect to see are one for makeup sets, another for, one for bath and body, and sometimes perfume/cologne sets. A couple of times a year, Avon also has a stuffed animal fundraiser flyer available which many groups use to provide stuffed animals to children while being able to keep the profits.
Your 2nd option is using our core brochure, mark. by Avon magalog, or our Living magalog. Products that are not manufactured by Avon would be excluded, as those are not guaranteed to be available. These are easily identifiable in the brochure with the symbol beside the product description in the brochure, but if your fundraiser is with me, I will cover those so that your participants and customers alike don’t unintentionally make that order.
Your 3rd option is an online fundraiser in which your customers order from my Avon eStore, which can used either by itself or in combination with either of the first 2 options. This is an easy way to earn money for your group and those supporting your group’s fundraiser will also be able to choose items that would not be available to them with a brochure or flyer fundraiser. Your group won’t even have to handle these orders and will receive credit for these orders when a special code that I provide you just for your group’s fundraiser or when your customer emails me their order confirmation number and the name of your group.
Other materials your group will handle during the fundraiser are money collection envelopes, product delivery bags, and customer thank you cards.
How much can you group earn?
Well, that depends on a few different things…
How many participants your group has and how much each participant commits to selling. 20 participants selling with 10 customers each (with an average customer order being $15) means your group’s fundraiser would total $3,000. If you are getting 35% of that, you’re earning $1,050!
The fundraiser option(s) you & your group choose to use. Fundraiser flyers will earn you 40%. Paper brochure and eBrochure fundraisers will depend on the sales total, giving you 20%-40%. Please note that with brochure fundraisers, non core products such as clothes, shoes, candles, home décor will generate 20% for your group. (Non-core products are denoted with a beside the product name in the paper brochures.)
Your group bagging the orders (with me available to answer questions), will maintain your 40% earnings.
The graphic below shows what your group will earn at levels of 20%, 30%, 35%, & 40% with a brochure/online fundraiser totaling at least $1,600 (assumes all products purchased are core products). If your group does a brochure fundraiser and does not have at least a $1,600 fundraiser total, 40% earnings will not be possible and your earnings percentage will depend on what your fundraiser total actually is.
Does my group charge customers Sales Tax?
If your group or organization is a 501C3 non-profit, it is tax exempt and will not be charging sales tax to those who support your fundraiser. Proper documentation must be submitted to Avon through me to support this exemption claim or sales tax will come out of your profits, so please make sure you have it at the beginning of your fundraiser. The proper documentation is a copy of your tax exemption certificate and a statement typed on your organization letterhead stating your group is indeed tax exempt under 501c3.
If you would like to do an Avon Fundraiser but are not within a couple of hours of Ruston, Louisiana, I’m am still more than happy to help! An Avon Rep needs to be the one to submit fundraisers, so there are two options. We can do it all with me as the Representative or you can become an Avon Representative, conduct the fundraiser (with me walking you through it), and keep all 50% for your group!
(I cannot do fundraisers for you if you are not located inside the United States.)
When you decide on an Avon fundraiser, I’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure it’s a success.
Contact me to discuss your fundraiser and get you started earning money for your group, organization, or individual!
I look forward to helping you have a successful fundraiser soon!
Have a great day!
