How profitable is selling alcohol for fund-raising purposes?

User Avatar
The most important information omitted in the question is where this sale would take place, as this affects everything including your potential customers and the legality of the sale. Assuming that everything is to be done legally so you cannot be hit with any fines, that you are selling to people with enough disposable income to spend on alcohol and you have bought enough stock to lower the unit price, then I think it would be fair to say... VERY profitable. Especially so if you are raising funds for an admirable cause.

Where can you find ideas for an arts fundraiser?

User Avatar
Arts Fundraising Ideas You can Make iHeart Haiti, You make clay Hearts and put them in neckless and glaze them or Just just have a bake sell You could always do something as simple as designing a graphic for a t-shirt that has something to do with helping Haiti. I know everyone can use t-shirts, and as long as it's a nice looking graphic and the prices aren't too high you can make quite a bit of profit off the sale to donate. Try searching around on the Ultimate Craft Industry Buyers Guide.

What are some good fundraising ideas for youth sports?

User Avatar
Bake Sales, 50-50 raffles, car washes, calendar sales, sports ticket raffles and walkathons. I can suggest the highest profit fundraiser is the Pizza Card my company developed. Another good sports fundraiser would be the Urban Farmer Seeds fundraiser. They use recycled magazines to package garden seeds and then have sports teams and school sell them in a fundraiser. For sports teams they will buy team uniforms and equipment depending on the amount raised. For schools they will donate a pretty big portion of the profits. It is easy and a good way to have a eco-friendly fundraiser.

Are there rules to fundraising?

User Avatar
There actually are rules to fundraising--federal laws and tax laws. How much, what it can do, how its used, who gives it, etc. are all defined. ---------------------------------------- There aren't necessarily any rules to fundraising. But if you raise more than a certain amount you will need to report it on your taxes unless you are a registered non profit organization. And if you are doing school fundraisers you may need to check with the school board to make sure your program is approved.

Do a compression test to see if the problem is internal to the engine Also check the wires that connect to the condenser packs from exterior. I had a similar problem....here the insulation between the wires was destroyed by the engine heat, causing a short and a constant miss.

What is the accounting entry for proceeds from fundraising activities?

User Avatar
Sounds simple, maybe it is not. Proceeds would be revenue, charitable revenue. The amount of tax deduction available may be discounted if the donor got something in return for the gift, e.g. a very nice dinner.

Who is Pink Warrior?

User Avatar
The real Pink Warrior® is Fiona McGarry-Gatzke. Her husband Kelly Gatzke began a campaign when Fiona was diagnosed in July of 2005 to help fight cancer. Fiona was the inspiration and the company, logo, events etc are in her honour by her husband. The real authentic, original Pink Warrior is Fiona McGarry-Gatzke. They started Pink Warrior term pulled from the beautiful poem that Fiona wrote on the date she was diagnosed "Sea of Pink". Both Pink Warrior and Sea of Pink have been copywrited, trademarked and legally belong to them. Kelly and Fiona and their supporters have built a company and foundation based on it. They devote tehir time, money and efforts in the goal to raise funds for cancer research. The donate their funds to the Pink Warrior Foundation. This foundation is unique in that 100% of the funds it receives are donated to cancer research. The Pink Warrior® and its logo is legally trademarked and owned by Mr. Kelly Gatzke. Mr Gatzke started the Pink Warrior Movement in 2005 when his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Pink Warrior began raising funds for breast acncer but after many requests they have expanded to include all types of cancer. The real Pink Warrior hold many events and have a retail website and a book all the raise funds for cancer research. Unfortunately many who are not involved with Pink Warrior® have started to use the name illegally and the funds raised from these others do not donate thier funds to the Pink warrior Foundation for Cancer Research. Don't be fooled check and be sure that the Pink Warrior item is actually from the real Pink Warrior®. It is important to respect persons trademark and/or copyright. Using another persons IP property is no different to stealing another identity. Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Who_owns_Pink_Warrior#ixzz1rlRlCuwM

Do box tops make a difference in schools?

User Avatar
Children may believe that they are making a positive difference in their schools simply by collecting box tops. Of course, they would love to contribute by helping their schools raise money for the supplies that they have always wanted. Kids would beg for new P.E. balls or cool science equipment in classrooms. Maybe they want new textbooks to learn from. Because they would do anything to get what they want, they eventually end up begging their parents to buy them numerous cereal or granola bar boxes especially for these reasons. However, these young kids do not understand that those small pieces of ten cent cardboard cutouts are overpriced for what they are really worth. Companies care more about promoting their products rather than raising money for elementary schools. Box tops are used as way to encourage parents to continuously buy particular foods for their children to make good sales for the company. Addendum: While the above might be true, what is more true is that schools use every resource they can find. The box top and soup label programs have been very effective in helping financially strapped schools provide tools and equipment that students might not normally have. Additionally, I've never heard of a school that encouraged wanton or wasteful spending by parents and students' families to boost contributions. School staff members work very hard to find programs that will put no added burdens on families in their districts. Although there are pessimistic perspectives out there, there are greater truths available to those who seek them. Edit: My school does up box tops and we get a lot of money from them. My family doesn't really go out of our way to buy products with box tops, we're "Oh, cool, this muffin mix we like comes with a box top!" While it may be another story for different people, it's really up to the parents to decide whather to indulge on box tops or save.

Try to see if distributer cap is clean. Also if your Van does not run properly after starting it is probably a problem with one of the injectors.
