Who wouldn't like a piece of a $160,000 pie? Custom Fundraising Solutions set a new national record this past weekend for “amount of dollars given back” in only one weekend of Mattress Fundraisers! Yes, ONE weekend! That would mean over $8.3 million dollars given back over the course of a year if we continue momentum like that. Here are some of the top programs last week:
- (Milwaukee) Sun Prairie HS Baseball Team, made $8,375
- (Minneapolis) South St. Paul HS Band made $6,100
- (Evansville) Vincennes Lincoln HS Band made $7,250
Some key factors to having a successful event include:
- Student/Coach/Director enthusiasm!
- Every member doing exactly what they’re asked!
- Spreading the word using social media and email!
- Knowing the event is going to be a success!
- Having FUN!
If you have a success story you’d like to share or if you know a school group in need of raising thousands of dollars in just one day, we want to hear from you! Send us an EMAIL!

A New Year’s Day tradition that takes place in living rooms across the country, is the watching of the Rose Parade, part of Pasadena’s Tournament of Roses. (At least its tradition for those of us who didn’t make the trip to Pasadena, to see it in person.) The parade boasts the best bands in the land, which are peppered among floating floral masterpieces and high-stepping equestrians. This year’s 126th annual event included a band that is very special to Stephen McCarthy, the CFS Virginia dealer. The Westfield High School Marching Bulldogs, from Chantilly, Virginia needed a creative way to send their 270-piece group to Pasadena. Their hefty fundraising goal needed some heavy hitting and the CFS Mattress Fundraiser was just the ticket. In just one day, they sold 80 beds, and received a check for $10,000. While watching the parade from your sofa, you might have heard the famous Al Roker talk about how the band did ‘something he’d never heard of before…a Mattress Sale!’ This moment made all of us at Custom Fundraising Solutions very proud. Our mission to give back millions of dollars to schools and organizations all across the country was recognized on national TV. We want to say “thank you” to all the groups we work with – you are all success stories!
