Funds2Orgs Better Business Bureau reviews of successful fundraising

When I heard about using Funds2Orgs as a fundraiser I was a tad skeptical. I was afraid that we would not be able to collect 100 bags of shoes (2,500 pairs of shoes) in a 60 day period. Our coach, Donna, could not have been nicer or more accommodating. She constantly checked in with us and was willing to lend any support needed. The materials arrived very quickly which enabled us to get started and Donna was always available by email or phone if we had any questions. We were not only able to meet our goal but surpass it! The truck was prompt in picking up the shoes and the truckdriver, Jorge, could not have been nicer. It is really refreshing to deal with such nice people! We received our check in less than seven days! We are definitely going to use them again in the future and I will definitely be spreading the word to other nonprofits! Thank you so very much!Fran S.

Our school just completed a Shoe Drive with Funds2orgs. Our drive was from June 1 to Aug. 30, 2015. Our experience with Funds2orgs was wonderful and our Fundraising Coach, Tammy E*****, was amazing to work with. She was always available to us via email or phone and able to answer all of our questions. Our school earned $4033.60 over the period. The company sent trucks to pick up our shoe collections 3 different times and were punctual and professional. We received checks within a week to 2 weeks after each pick up. If we needed extra supplies like rubber bands & plastic bags they were mailed and received within 3 days or less. They had plenty of media samples online and weekly ideas emailed to help support the Shoe Drive Coordinator and boost the drive. Overall it was an incredible experience for our school!Lisa G.

In six short weeks, our charity collected over 8,000 pounds of shoes (nearly 7500 pairs!) and last week we received a check for $3, 224.40 – less than one week after the truck came to pick up our shoes. Funds2Orgs was great to work with – very helpful, provided quick responses to questions (both by email and phone) and gave us great advice and encouragement. The community response was fantastic – lots of excitement and willingness to donate. We had several local churches, schools and businesses volunteer to be collection sites. Several neighborhoods also volunteered to hold shoe drives at their club houses and other non-profits in town offered to help us collect shoes. One of my favorite stories from the drive involved a local organization that ministers to an impoverished area in our county – caring for people, many of whom are disabled, elderly, and poor. They volunteered to put a collection box in their center and filled it up with shoes FIVE times. A gentleman came in one day with shoes falling apart and was able to pick out some “new” shoes from their clothes closet. He then took the old shoes off his feet and put them in our collection box – the director said it made him so happy to not just receive generosity but to be able to give generously in return. When I thanked them for helping us collect shoes, their director said, “No Thank YOU!!!! It has given our Grove Friends a way to give back!” I highly recommend partnering with Funds2Orgs to raise money for your non-profit by collecting shoes. Not only did we collect thousands of pairs and keep them out of the local landfills, we also had the opportunity to spread the word about Young Life to people and places who had never heard of us before now. This was a win-win for our community, our environment and our organization!Trina G.
