Okay - I am new to the blogging world. But hoping to reach out to other savvy moms like me. I started working for a super company called Plum District as a Community Relations Consultant. I am looking for non-profits, schools, sports organizations or other groups that would be interested in a no-cost, no-purchase ridiculously easy fundraiser for their groups in Northern California Bay Area. I sit on two PTA boards, so I know how hard it is to fundraise. I would not be doing this if it were a scam - we are honestly just looking to unite communities and local businesses. I hope this is the right place to reach out to other moms like me :)Answer Question
I took a look at Plum District because I had no idea what it was. It reminds me a lot of Mamapedia. Not sure how Plum District does their fundraising but with Mamapedia, 5% of every purchase does to a school or organization of their purchasers choice. With not knowing how y'all do fundraising, my only advice is to send letters, announcements, e-mails, etc to all the schools and organizations in your area, announcing your fundraising service. Once you send them out, a few weeks later, you can give them a follow up call. Also, if your business allows, I would attend as many networking events in your area as possible.

"The hardest part is just finding the "go to" people."
I would look for networking groups in your area, join Linkedin, and call around to the organizations and ask them who to specifically address fundraising info to. Good Luck!
