FAQ

What are the benefits of E-fundraising with MCM versus just using the traditional paper order forms?

You enter participant email addresses or phone number, and we do the rest!

The system allows you to stay organized, Tally Your Order, Submit Order, Collect Credit Card Payments, Ship Product direct to your family & friends both locally and nation-wide.

Our email-based system automatically reminds participants to stay motivated and engaged throughout the fundraiser so you don't have to!

 

What is the MCM Simply Shipped Collection?

Our Simply Shipped Collection is a collection of 5 different items that are sold exclusively online either on their own, or in addition to the frozen fundraiser that your group is running.

This is a ship direct-to-door program that goes straight to BUYERS, nationwide! There is no delivery to facilitate, and no forms or money to collect as everything has been purchased and paid for online!

All of our Simply Shipped products automatically earn 40% profit for the group no matter what!

You can see all of the products here: https://my.mcmfundraising.com/demo-fundraiser-non-perishable/steve-moser/

 

Does selling online cost anything?

No! Using our E-fundraising platform is a complimentary service we provide our customers!

We want you to be able to sell whichever way works best for you! Using the online platform does not change the profit you make or take away anything from the group’s earnings!

 

If I’m running my fundraiser online do I have to sell the Simply Shipped Collection?

No, absolutely not. You can still utilize the online selling platform for your frozen fundraiser and not add the Simply Shipped program.

Just let us know which program you’d like to run, and whether or not you’d like to add the Simply Shipped products!

 

What are my next steps?

You can sign up for any of our frozen fundraising programs at http://www.mcmfundraising.com/sign-up-for-a-fundraiser

Also let us know if you would like to add the online sell platform, and whether or not you would like to sell our Simply Shipped collection alongside your frozen products!

If you opt for online selling, you will receive an email that invites you to “Create your Group Leader Account” This will be the username and password that you use to login to your E-fundraiser at all times. If you cannot find this e-mail, please contact us to let us know and we can resend!

Once you’ve created your group leader account, you can log in and out at any time, from anywhere and check the progress of your program!

 

How does the online process work?

The best way to get your sellers informed and motivated is to add them to your online platform either by email or by phone number. This will get the contact engaged with either a text message or email notification, letting them know the details of their upcoming program!

You will find these features in the “Add Participants” tab on the left side of your group leader dashboard.

We’ve also included your personal fundraising link that can be posted to social media, posted to blackboard or a school site, etc!

If you don’t have access to participant email or cell phone numbers, no worries! Your order forms will also have the e-fundraising link printed directly on them, so sellers can take it upon themselves to log on and start selling!

As participants sell online you can track their progress, and watch the group get closer to reaching their goal!

 

How do I get you the money?

If the majority of your group’s sales are online, people will be paying with credit card, and MCM will cut a check to YOU for your earnings!

If the majority of the sales are paper orders and you have received cash and checks from participants, YOU will owe MCM a check at the point of delivery!

 

How much profit are we making?

Our profit scale is sliding, so the more you sell the more you make!

How does delivery work?

IF YOU SOLD JUST THE SIMPLY SHIPPED COLLECTION, THERE IS NO DELIVERY. WE HANDLE SHIPPING!

 

For tips on delivery of our frozen programs, go here: http://www.mcmfundraising.com/delivery-tips

 

*E-fundraising group leaders MUST print out the Tally Sheet and the participants' order forms prior to delivery.

  You can print both from the group leader dashboard, on the right-hand side. Click “Print Participant Delivery Forms” and “Print Tally Sheet” to make sure that you are prepared for a successful delivery!

ANY SIMPLY SHIPPED COLLECTION PURCHASES WILL NOT BE DELIVERED WITH THE FROZEN PRODUCTS. WE WILL SHIP THEM DIRECTLY TO THE BUYERS’ HOME!

ANY FROZEN ITEMS PURCHASED THROUGH OUR E-FUNDRAISING PLATFORM WILL COME WITH THE REST OF YOUR ORDER, DELIVERED AS NORMAL!

 

What if people don’t come pick up their product?

Have a game plan in place and let people know!

Determine whether or not you have any available freezer space to keep product overnight.

If not, let the participants know that their product will be donated if it is not picked up on time.

 

What if people try to turn in their orders after the deadline?

It is up to the group leader’s digression if you would like to take any late orders.

We will do our best to accommodate any late orders, but we cannot always. Give us a call and we can see if an addition if feasible.

 

How should I organize the orders?

The driver will line up the order by product in the way that it appears on the sheet.

Every box is color coordinated as well, so you should leave the boxes the way that the driver organizes them!

 

How long can the product be out for at delivery?

Our braided pastry can be out of the freezer for 2-4 hours.

The pie, crisp and cookie dough can be out for 6-8.

 

Do we need to have a freezer at the space for delivery?

Most places do not have freezer space, so no. We schedule delivery and you can schedule pick-up at an appropriate time, so that the product won’t be left out for too long. You should communicate with participants that because there is not freezer space available, it is important to be prompt for pickup!

 

I have participants with allergies- what’s in the products?

All of our products have their ingredients listed on our website.
