Custom Fundraising Solutions (CFS) has grown to become one of the largest and most innovative fundraising organizations in the country, currently operating in 40 locations from coast to coast.
Custom Fundraising Solutions is committed to helping kids raise millions of dollars, in turn benefiting both participants and the community.
The company’s success is grounded in its fresh and creative approach to fundraising. None of its programs require students to sell products door-to-door or rely on parents to sell to friends at work. Rather, CFS offers fundraising solutions that are fun, stress-free, and offer important services to the community. Providing display products, collecting all monies, and handling all product deliveries for events like its popular Mattress Fundraiser, CFS helps groups eliminate hassle and embrace fundraising as a festive, enjoyable event.
One of the organization’s most successful fundraisers, the Mattress Fundraiser has been utilized by high school sports teams, choirs, and other clubs around the country. An unconventional way of raising money, the Mattress Fundraiser taps into the fact that most people replace their mattresses every few years. Columbus North High School in Columbus, Indiana, utilized a Mattress Fundraiser to earn money for the school choir’s trip to New York City, where students attended Broadway shows, performed, and attended workshops. With the assistance of CFS, nearly 80 choir students worked to raise $1500 each to offset the costs of the trip. Shoppers enjoyed browsing a mattress showroom set up in the choir room, while students earned 40 percent of the profits for each mattress sold.
Since its founding in 2006, Custom Fundraising Solutions has run more than 3000 fundraising events throughout the United States, with most groups raising between $3,000 and $10,000 per event.
