(You do not need 501c3 charity status).
THE PROGRAM IS FREE to organize. And movie tickets are face value.
FilmRaiser works at ANY MOVIE THEATER where tickets can be bought on Fandango.
$1.00 from every ticket comes back to your cause—to any showing on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday of opening weekend [or longer if stated so] for the film being offered. It all adds to the your earnings!
After opening weekend—we tally the box office sales and mail a check to you.
The opportunity works all day, for every screening.
And runs ALL OPENING WEEKEND LONG.
PLUS—your community can promote the event to relatives and friends ALL OVER THE COUNTRY—anywhere in the U.S. where someone selects your cause our website before buying tickets to see the movie—money comes back to your cause!
And after reaching local friends, family, co-workers and your community—your team should reach out to contacts and friends in other cities. It's all pretty awesome. : )
WHEN EACH NEW FILM IS ANNOUNCED—FILMRAISER WILL INVITE YOUr cause to PARTICIPATE! LET'S SEE GREAT FILMS TOGETHER!
We will notify when new movies become available as fundraisers. 2-3 per year.
Studios decide which films are chosen...but we aim to give you several weeks to prepare.
Participate as often as you like! Just click “Participate” in the emails we send to you.
You can select the movies that fit your community—and skip others.
HOW EVENTS WORK:
We'll email to invite you to PARTICIPATE in a new movie.
We'll send you some great studio art (digital posters).
And we'll show you how to easily add the name of your cause to the poster.
Then you simply send people to www.FilmRaiser.com.
When they select your cause from a list—a unique link will pop up.
Any tickets to the movie bought through that link track back to your school!
Hopefully some of this helps!
