Calling all PTA Chairs! We know that the PTA is hard at work all year long to put on fabulous events that raises money for the school. With Christmas being just around the corner, people have probably started thinking about decorating their homes for Christmas and what gifts they will buy for their family and friends. It might be tough for some to find some really unique, thoughtful presents this year. That's why we have an idea for a great fundraiser: PTA Christmas wreath sale!
This fundraiser can be a big hit! Plus, it'll let your creative side out as you come up with cute decorations on these beautiful wreaths! And don't worry if you didn't get into the holiday spirit yet – there are plenty of festive decoration ideas and colours to choose from.
To make this fundraiser go off seamlessly, why not pre-sell your wreaths online so you don’t have to predict sales or handle cash!
Get set up in 5 simple steps.
Click the ‘Add Event’ button and enter a title then select ‘Christmas Wreath Sale’ from the dropdown, and select 'Go'.
Now select ‘Sell online tickets’ and click the link to connect your payment account.
You'll first be prompted to connect to your existing Stripe account. They will ask if your community has an existing Stripe account - select ‘Yes’ if you already have an account. Don’t worry if you currently don’t have one because an account can be created online in minutes here - simply select ‘No’ and follow the instructions that follow. You will need to provide your PTA's bank details, and a contact person. (If you also provide proof of your PTA's charity status you can benefit from reduced-rate Stripe fees.)
Next up our template has it set for you to sell your wreaths. Under the 'Edit' tab you can add your Christmas wreaths for sale under 'Items'. The template includes a sample wreath entry so feel free to edit this entry or add your own. You can even add your own images to spruce up your listing.
With our friendly user interface, you can edit the price and dates of the Christmas wreath sale so they can pick up their purchases on the day.
Next on the Forms tab you can collect information for the wreath sales such as Full Name, Contact Number, Email etc. You can add an item form for each entry that you have added under 'Items' in the previous step.
A highlight of this system is that you can easily manage your Christmas Wreath Sale tasks for volunteers to choose from. With PlanSocial, up to 20 core organisers can carry out any task they feel comfortable with. Don’t worry if you have more than 20 volunteers. If you upgrade to the paid Community Hub plan, you can open up volunteering opportunities to all parents.
In this template we have several tasks pre-loaded for you. You can click 'Edit' to customise them to your liking or Click ‘Add Task’ to create new tasks from scratch.
Click ‘Edit’ to edit the date and add in details, then share it with parents in your school so they can purchase their wreaths safely using their debit or credit card from any device.
