All You Need to Know About Hosting a Thirty-One Fundraiser

Image Posted on Updated on

Have you ever thought about doing a fundraiser with Thirty-One?


Do you have a child in an extracurricular activity? 

Here is a little twist on the traditional way of doing fundraisers.  Instead of offering a fundraiser to an organization such as your local High School Cheerleaders, I am offer parents of the cheerleader a portion of my commission to help you pay for your child’s sports activity.  You can use this for any other organization that a parent must pay to have their children participate.

**I do them for entire organizations as well, I just want you to know it is possible to do this for a single member also!

What kind of fundraisers can I help you earn money for?





Show choir



School trips




Relay for Life


Beauty pageants

Study abroad programs…

You name it…we can do it! I’ve also done fundraisers for In Vitro Funds and Adoption Funds!

What’s in it for you?

  • You can earn the money it costs for your child to join a team sport for the year. You’ll earn 30% of all sales from your fundraiser

So how does it work? 

It’s so simple!

  1. You get a packet in the mail with catalogs, order forms, and customer special fliers.
    1. If you have “helpers” that’s even better! I can send more than one packet for Grandma, your best friend, your sister…anyone who wants to help you collect orders!
    2. If it’s a whole group doing the fundraiser, like a dance team, I will send a packet for EACH mom.
  2. We will set the event up online through my Thirty-One website. People will be able to order from all over the country under your fundraiser’s name.
  3. We can also set up a Facebook event. I set it all up, post at least 3 times a day, and give away prizes! It’s a great way for people from all over to be able to see the product and order from your fundraiser!

Don’t have a fundraiser need of your own?

  • Pass this on to a friend that might be able to benefit from this, think of your friends and family who could benefit from this!
  • Do you know someone who is trying to earn money for a trip? Mission trips, youth group outings, church outings, cancer benefits (or other medical bills benefits), anything you can think of…I can help!

I’ve been doing fundraisers for Thirty-One for about 6 years now. I’ve been with the company for seven years! If a great, easy, FUN way to earn some money for your fundraising efforts is what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place!

    Good Morning, I’m interested in the fundraising aspect of our company! If we only make 25% commission, how do you inturn offer 30% return for the organization that is doing the fundraising?

      I make a higher commission because of my title. So you go according to what % you make

    Thank you for posting this information on your blog. I joined Thirty-One as an Independent Consultant at the beginning of 2015. My main reason for joining, aside from LOVING Thirty-One products, was to coordinate fund-raising activities for friends who were associated with non-profit pet rescue organizations. I have done some very small on-line “parties” with friends, but haven’t hosted an in-home party yet. Before I joined the Thirty-One team my consultant made ordering and parties seem effortless. Now that I’m a consultant I’m over-whelmed keeping track of the specials and hostess exclusives and working to get my hostesses the most product for the money they spend. One thing that always frustrated me, about my consultant before I joined Thirty-One, was that she knew what the next month special was going to be – but allowed me to spend full price on an item I wanted (weekender bag) that was a special the following month – and the in-home party I went to was only FIVE days before the end of the month. I had been a great customer for her and was really upset – I would’ve spent the same amount of money at the home party and saved by putting my weekender purchase off until the next month AND would have spent more money that following month. So fund-raising, and knowing the next month’s special ahead of time, motivated me to join Thirty-One. Thanks for the information you share on your blog – even for those who aren’t on your team. Thank you for motivating a newbie consultant!

    Melissa, when doing fundraisers do you donate your full commission, or a percentage of it? If you donate a percentage, what percent do you usually use?

      You would donate whatever you choose. I donate 30%, but I make a higher commission
