“We are proud to have regained the National Record raising $58,295 at our Mattress Fundraiser! This was our 5th annual sale and it has become a reliable avenue for over sixteen organizations on our campus to help finance their various needs. We take comfort knowing that the community who supported our Mattress Fundraiser is receiving a high-quality product at an unbelievable price!”
I have been coaching for 8 years and the one aspect of the job I dread the most is fundraising. Throughout the years we have tried it all …then I heard about CFS and the “Mattress Fundraiser” from a colleague and thought, “why not, I’ll give it a shot.” I know selling mattresses sounds a bit bizarre (and it is) but it works! The time commitment from players, coaches, and families is mini-mal and the results are impressive and I cannot stress enough the simplicity of the events. I would highly recommend running this fundraiser to support your group!
Our experience with CFS was absolutely stellar and I highly recommend other schools participate in the activity. The idea of selling mattresses is indeed, a strange one at first. We took a risk at Loch Raven High School that not only paid off financially, but that also helped us to gain strength as an organization. We are incredibly grateful for his commitment to us. After a successful event, we are looking forward to a continued relationship with this company
Every year we run the Mattress Fundraiser I think, ‘This is the year no one is going to come!’ This year we had our first sale 12 minutes after we opened the doors. The Bay High Men’s and Women’s Soccer Teams just finished our 10th annual Mattress Fundraiser and raised $10,000! We are the envy of every athletic program because of our ability to be financially self-sufficient, which is all due to Custom Fundraising Solutions, AKA, The Mattress Fundraiser! If you’re on the fence about hosting an event, you need to take my word for it – or sell 10,000.00 candy bars – it’s your call
Our school is located in a rural community in southeastern Ohio just outside of Athens. Our band program consists of between 100 to 120 students total depending of the year. The district is very supportive of the program and provides us with funding for music, instruments, and repairs of school-owned instruments. We are very fortunate in this regard. However, we do have to fund any other expenses outside of these, so it is necessary for us to do a few fundraisers per year. When I first heard about the idea of a mattress sale, I thought it was strange quite frankly. It was just so different from any of the other fundraisers we’ve done. It was much less work for us than we normally had to do for a fundraiser. I had very few things to take care of. We worked hard as a band organization to get as many people through the door as possible. The referral system and incentives that are set up for the students really excited them and made them want to get people to come to the sale. On the day of the sale, there was not very much for us to do. I had several students come to play instruments, hold up signs, and be around the sale. I thought this was great because the people that were coming to the sale wanted to see the students that they were supporting. I couldn’t believe we could make that much money for our program in one day with such little work for myself and the booster organization. Because we exceeded our goal by so much, we are now looking into buying an equipment trailer, something we thought we were going to have to wait a few years before we would have enough money in order to purchase it. I am definitely going to do this fundraiser again next year and would highly recommend it to anyone else looking to earn money for their organization.
I don't normally post testimonials on purchased products, however, I must share the positive experience I had with CFS. I recently bought a new split-king adjustable bed at our High School Band Mattress Fundraiser. I have spinal stenosis in my entire spine, so waking up without severe pain just doesn't happen. I was hesitant to make such an important purchase at a school fundraiser because I had recently bought a name brand mattress that never provided a comfortable sleep experience. Since getting my new bed, pain-free mornings are now my new norm! My encounter with CFS was amazingly positive. A sales person was at the school to help me make the best decision on the type of bed I needed. I'm sharing this so that others will feel confident about purchasing from a Mattress Fundraiser with CFS.
I took all the money that we had saved up and went to the Unioto High School Mattress Fundraiser. The staff were the kindest, best people I’ve ever worked with, and when I walked away, I walked away very happy, well taken care of, with a great queen size bed perfect for my husband and me. It is a memory foam mattress and it even raises up and down. We also got memory foam pillows which we really needed. I thank God that these people were willing to listen to what it was my husband and I were looking for. I even went in my pajamas so that I could lay comfortably on each bed to make sure I found the right one! LOL!
We got a new bed from the last bed sale and it was the best investment we have made in years! It’s weird, I used to love sleeping in the hotel beds because ours was not comfy. Now when going to hotels I can’t wait to come home to our bed! And to think we just came there to LOOK at the beds. Lol.
Let CFS help you successfully and easily reach your fundraising goals.
