40+ Franchises Sold and Gaining Momentum





Training is the number 1 standout for me looking back on my first 6 months with the company...I found it very easy to digest the information and apply it to my business.

Dan Smith, Franchise Owner; Georgia




I recently made a successful placement of one of my candidates into a Fundraising University franchise. I can tell you from the moment I sent the referral over to the signing of the franchise agreement this is a world class organization! Mike Bahun (CEO) and his team are incredible. So professional. My candidate was so impressed. One of my personal favorite franchises to show in the entire IFPG inventory!

Charlie Bever, Senior Franchise Consultant; The Entrepreneur Authority




Fundraising University is great because the start up costs are low and you can start making money almost immediately...One of best things about it is that you are in control of how successful you can be. I came from a corporate career as a software engineer where success depended a lot more on other people and company profit rather than hard work. I finally decided that business ownership was the best way for me to take charge of my future. What attracted me to Fundraising University was the ability to work with coaches, teachers, schools, and ultimately the kids. What better way is there to give back to the community than to help schools pay for the programs that kids love and depend on so much?

Dennis Howard, Franchise Owner; Tennessee




My best experience that I’ve had with Fundraising University is when I raised money for the Schuyler cheerleading group... They wanted to raise at least $600 per athlete, and we were able to do that. We raised over $6,000 for their 10 athletes. To me, that was extremely rewarding to help out the community and help those girls pay their bills throughout the entire year. Being a Fundraising University franchise owner allows me to provide for my family, keep connected with sports, and provide for the community.

Collin Shockey, Franchise Owner; Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Initial investment ranges from $67k-$104k for your first franchise, depending on costs associated with your region.
Yes. We define regions as an area with 50,000 high school students. You can start a franchise in any region that does not already have a Fundraising University franchise.
From the moment you sign your contract to the moment you’re approaching clients, it takes 60-90 days. 
You decide how much time you want to spend running your business! Most franchisees invest more hours up front building their customer base and leading fundraisers. As you grow, it’s easy to hire and train new Fundraising University coaches to be your people-on-the-ground.

There are ongoing fees that cover ongoing support packaged with operations, marketing, accounting, legal, and research and development as well as continued education.

Get in contact with us to get a full breakdown of the fees that are included.

Yes. As you get started, you will spend more time face-to-face with customers. But, as you grow, this job can easily become remote.

Average annual revenues per franchise are $1.2M with 25% EBITDA.

Yes. Cost-per-franchise decreases exponentially the more you buy. For a full breakdown of the costs per unit call us.

We estimate high school athletic fundraisers to be a $800 million industry. And, it’s not just high school sports! Every school, class, activity, club, and team is fair game for a Fundraising University fundraiser.

Until 2010, the market was dominated by a single national brand that grew to $150M by ONLY targeting Varsity Football programs. Today, the high school fundraising industry is fragmented with local reps that lack national brand solutions like Fundraising University’s. That leaves us with a nation of teachers and coaches who easily see us as the best option, as soon as they get an introduction.

 

We’re a family and we want to see you succeed. That’s why our franchises are packaged with operations, marketing, accounting, legal, and research and development support. You retain constant access to our corporate team and we encourage open communication throughout the life of your franchise. 

 

Activities are strapped for cash and coaches don’t have time to coordinate fundraisers. Our fundraisers net an average of $200 per student and put money in the team’s bank in 7-10 days. That’s the difference between cutting school programs and enriching students’ lives.

to see their faces when they reach their goal, and to earn their prizes...It’s
