Southwestern Fundraising has been making big waves in the school fundraising pool with City Saver (the nation’s best coupon book and digital savings app), through donations-based programs, including Ready Set Fund, and through their Magazine Program, which encourages parents and youth to read more at home. Read below for some exciting updates about Southwestern Fundraising’s product lines, including the launch of two new COOP (Southwestern Fundraising’s prized super hero chicken and crew) branded websites.
When City Saver joined the Southwestern Family of Companies summer of 2018, it had its popular coupon book in five core markets. In August 2019, City Saver released coupon books in 25 different cities across the country: Nashville, TN; Memphis, TN; Louisville, KY; Las Vegas, NV; Cincinnati, OH; Orlando, FL; Fresno, CA; Green Bay, WI; Springfield, MO; Austin, TX; Atlanta-North, GA; Harrisburg, PA; Huntsville, AL; Bloomington, IL; Houston, TX; Short Pump, VA; Manchester, NH; Indy-South, IN; Dayton, OH; Oxford-Anniston, AL; Long Island, NY; Peoria, IL; Indy-North, IN; and York, PA. They also rebranded their discount card program, which provides savings in dozens of additional markets nationwide. Both products not only help schools raise money and people save money, but they also give consumers access to the exciting City Saver mobile app, which provides all of these great discounts conveniently on your phone. Plus, beginning in September, they will be introducing City Saver’s Deal of the Week, which will roll out first in the Nashville market. Check out this article in the Tennessean about them!
Ready Set Fund is the first fundraising company in history to provide a “residual income” program to schools while eliminating the hassle of money collection and product distribution. They are off to an amazing start of the 2019–2020 school year. Their sales are already at almost $100,000 per month, and they have over 9,000 supporters contributing $10 per month to help schools across the country.
Big Blast allows students to collect online donations to raise money for their school. Then, to celebrate their success, the students are treated to the big blast event–an inflatable obstacle course with an interactive fun zone. The more donations students collect, the more prizes they earn. The Big Blast fundraiser gives students a day to remember while earning large profits for their school.

Young students can earn college benefits by partnering in a Southwestern Fundraising program and selling products. The Tuition Rewards program is offered through SAGE Scholars and remains exclusive to Southwestern Fundraising. Non-senior students can earn up to 2,500 Tuition Rewards Points, which are eligible with nearly 400 private colleges and universities across America who participate in the program. Customers running a SWF product line along with other suppliers’ product lines can combine the students’ totals to reach the qualifying levels. For every 100 units sold, students earn 1,000 certificate points. For every 250 units sold, students earn 2,500 certificate points. Southwestern Fundraising Programs have generated nearly $550 million in Tuition Rewards Points since the program began in Fall 2015.
Also, through Southwestern Fundraising’s programs, over $1 million in financial gifts, products, and service contributions have been given to deserving charities in the last school year. Funds raised through Charity Gift Card programs provide needed support for schools/groups and help great charities at the same time. With all that Southwestern Fundraising has to offer, there are many ways for schools and individual students to raise money.
With a big start to 2019 and 2020 already in motion, Southwestern Fundraising has just announced their exciting 2020 incentive trip to Montego Bay, Jamaica, where qualifying salespeople will enjoy a kid-free vacation to celebrate all of their efforts.
