Examples of fund-raising methods may include, but not be limited to:
Aluminum Can Collections
This consists of the gathering of cans and sales to a recycling center. Meet with a recycling center in your area and develop a partnership that will allow you to earn money for the fund by recycling cans. Locate trailers at various places in your area, such as fire departments, schools, shopping centers, or golf courses for the public to drop off their cans. Use community service workers. These people are excellent to use for sorting bags of cans, trailer maintenance, sign making, etc. This is another good way of developing a partnership with your community.
BI-LO Boosters Program
The BI-LO Boosters program is open to all non-profit organizations such as schools, churches and charities. You can enroll your non-profit organization in the program by calling 1-800-768-4438. Once you have a number, get as many people to enroll as you can. Then, each time they use their BI-LO BonusCard, the purchase amount will be automatically attributed to the charity selected. At the end of each quarter, BI-LO will make a donation based on a percentage of total purchases.
Food Lion MVP Card
Food Lion MVP cardholders can go on-line and register their cards (www.foodlion.com - click on fundraisers and follow instructions). Food Lion will donate a percentage of each cardholder’s purchases to the FFBCF each quarter.
