what is a Get Shaved fundraiser?

A Get Shaved Fundraiser is a fundraiser where Get Shaved donates to non-profit organizations. Non-profit organizations must have a valid tax ID number. The fundraising event takes place at either one of our store locations or you can choose to have our truck come to your event on a specified evening. The benefiting organization will promote the Get Shaved Fundraiser to community members. The organization will receive 20% of the sales (excluding tax and gratuity) from the organizations guests when the event voucher is presented.

rules

  • Application must be submitted to Get Shaved a minimum of four weeks in advance of requested Get Shaved Fundraiser. Due to limited availability, schedule as far in advance as possible so that we can do our best to accommodate your fundraiser.
  • For all in-store fundraisers, guests must have a valid Get Shaved Fundraiser voucher in order to have the sale counted. Vouchers must be turned in to Get Shaved Team Members at the time of purchase during the Get Shaved Fundraiser. Vouchers cannot be used for purchasing gift cards. Get Shaved Team Members staple the receipt to the event voucher and provide a receipt to the supporter.
  • In accordance with our no solicitation policy, organizations are not permitted to display or distribute any signage, pamphlets or other propaganda for the organization’s scheduled fundraiser on premises of Get Shaved.
  • You must receive approval from ANY private property owner if you wish to distribute flyers or display poster on premises (i.e. placing flyers on cars, handing out at shopping centers, mailboxes, etc.). The organization will be responsible for paying any littering or postal fines if this rule is violated.
  • There will be a $300 per hour/2-hour minimum (approximately 200 pre-sale tickets) for any truck fundraiser.
  • For the purpose of extending realistic expectations, if the Get Shaved Fundraiser brings in $1000 (excluding tax and gratuity), the 20% donation would be $200 to the organization.
    Get Shaved Fundraiser Donation Formula: Estimated attendance x $3 (average sale) = Get Shaved Fundraiser Sales x .20 (20%) equals the Get Shaved Fundraiser.

  • Customized PDF flyers and vouchers (use scissors to make vertical cuts on dotted lines so vouchers can be torn off) approximately two weeks prior to the event. It is the responsibility of the organization to distribute the promotional flyers and event vouchers via email and/or print to their supporters. For a successful fundraiser, distribution of at least 500 flyers is recommended.
  • A statement with the donation amount emailed to the organization approximately one week after the event.
  • Mailing of the donation check approximately one week after the event.

the organization provides:

  • Completed application with a valid tax ID number.
  • Promotion of event, printing and distribution of flyers and vouchers or email distribution of the promotional material to their constituents.

planning tips

  • Personally delivering flyers and chatting about the event is by far the best way to get people to come to your Get Shaved Fundraiser. Friends, family and volunteers are the perfect resource for this type of event. Encourage them to hand the flyers out at work, meetings, etc. Send out press releases and public service announcements to local newspapers, radio stations and television stations.
  • Set realistic expectations. Consider the dollar amount of funds you want to receive from the fundraiser. For example, if you want to earn $160, your organization needs to bring in $800 in sales. If the average guest spends $3, approximately 267 people will need to participate in the fundraiser to reach your goal.
  • Promote, Promote, Promote. Ultimately, the enthusiasm of the organization’s members to promote the event is the biggest factor in success.
  • Distributing flyers to your supporters 1–2 weeks in advance is optimal. You will receive electronic versions of the Get Shaved Fundraiser flyer and event vouchers two weeks in advance of your scheduled event so you have enough time to print and/or email. Display the flyers provided at your organization’s meeting location and other community locations (with permission).
  • Remember email is a cost effective way to promote your event. Be sure you instruct the recipient to print the event voucher to bring with them the day of the event.
  • Please use the verbiage from the flyer in any communications about the fundraiser. It should be clear that the event does not discount meals; it simply raises funds for your group.
  • Utilize any print materials you already have. Stuff the flyers in the newsletters or magazines already set to go out. Take advantage of any opportunity to announce your Get Shaved Fundraiser to groups willing to support your cause (i.e. group sporting events, PTA meetings, etc.).
