Profits and Costs with FootballMania

Profit
Determining your profit with FootballMania is easy. To raise money, you sell CharityMania Tickets for $5 and keep 70% of the money you collect. Ticket holders receive $5 worth of premium digital music downloads (read why the music is important for this fundraiser), and they are entered into the FootballMania sweepstakes. Sell 10 tickets or 10,000 tickets... you make $3.50 on every ticket. It is really that simple.

Costs
You determine how many CharityMania tickets you need and then purchase them from us for 19¢ per ticket (to cover the printing costs) plus shipping and a $10 handling fee per order. You then sell each CharityMania ticket for $5. With each sale you pay $1.50 to CharityMania to cover the costs of the music downloads, the management of the sweepstakes, and any prize money your game cards may win. The remaining $3.50 is your profit! Sell 10 tickets or 10,000 tickets... you pay $1.50 for only those tickets you sell.

Profit comparison with other fundraisers

Cookie
Dough
unique fundraisers
30 - 50%
profit
Cookie dough may sound good to eat, but it doesn't make you much money in a fundraiser. Unless you sell a lot of tubs, you will keep as little as 30% of the money you collect.
Wrapping Paper
and Candles

~45%
profit
Physical goods typically let you keep a little less than half of what you collect. Plus you need to deliver the purchased goods to the buyers. This can be a lot of work to coordinate.
Magazine
Sales
