How do we sell tickets?
Start with family and friends. Setting up a table or booth at a local high traffic outlet such as a grocery store or bank can also help improve your sales. Brown Bear Car Wash can provide an 8.5"x11" marketing flier to help. For orders of 500 or more tickets, we can also lend you a fundraising banner to assist with sales (banners subject to availability).
You can increase profit potential by offering discounts to customers who buy more than one ticket at a time (example: one for $8, two for $15, five for $30).
We also suggest recording serial number ranges of the tickets distributed to the participants of the fundraiser. This will help you keep track of who has which tickets and how many they are accountable for.
Must we have a non-profit tax ID to participate?
Yes. You must provide either a valid Federal TIN or WA State UBI number showing active non-profit status in order to participate in the Charity Car Wash Program.
Do you accept purchase orders?
Generally, no, we do not accept purchase orders. Purchase orders may be submitted and we can return to you an invoice for payment processing, if necessary, but we cannot complete the order until payment has been received.
I have other questions. Can you answer them?
Yes we can! Call the Charity Car Wash Program at 206.774.3742.
