Selling your Charity Charms can be a great way to fundraise. With Cause Jewelry…it’s not about the price, it’s about the meaning of the jewelry. The fact that people are giving back to your cause with every purchase means many times they will donate more than the amount you ask for. You pay for Charity Charms items at wholesale, so consider asking 2-3x the amount you paid for the best ROI.

Donation Drives

Use your Charity Charms to raise funds for a specific campaign or goal. A softer way to “sell” is by offering your charms as a thank you for a minimum donation. This is a comfortable way for volunteers to promote your products without feeling like a salesperson. Additionally, this may preclude having to collect sales tax as you are receiving donations. (Check with your tax advisor)
