In-Store Fundraisers for Education & Literacy
What is an In-Store Fundraiser?
It’s a fun and easy way to get kids excited about reading while raising funds for your school or non-profit organization! It’s very little work on the school’s behalf, with powerful benefits.
It’s a great opportunity to bring students, their families, teachers, staff together socially in a safe, fun, unique environment, while raising funds for the school or organization.
On a designated day, the school’s or organization’s supporters will come into the Tattered Cover, shop, and all their purchases will tallied and a percentage of those sales will be credited back to your school or non-profit organization. It can be as basic as that or we can work together to add some fun activities to enhance the experience.
Who is eligible?
Any school non-profit organization working towards education or literacy, with a maximum of two events per calendar year.
Why hold an In-Store Fundraiser?
- An easy, fun way to gets kids reading and involved, while raising money for your school.
- It’s a great opportunity to bring students, their families, teachers, staff together socially in a safe, fun, unique environment, while raising funds for the school or organization.
- Having this event at our bookstore allows students and their families to choose from our entire stock, rather than a selection when the event is held at the school.
- As this event takes place in our bookstore, instead of having parents and teacher volunteers, our bookstore staff is available to you. You get their knowledge and friendly customer service.
- Your would-be volunteers can now enjoy the event.
- It’s considered a “destination event,” which means you have the opportunity to work with other neighboring businesses to create a convenient and fun day or evening. Partner with a restaurant so families coming in the evening can go home afterwards having dinner all done.
- There’s free parking (Aspen Grove and Colfax locations) and free gift-wrapping.
