Boy Scout Troop 374
I would like to thank you for the opportunity last month to work together again for our Boy Scout troop’s fundraising needs. We have worked together consistently for the last five years. We have averaged a profit of $6,000 each year for our group of approximately thirty boys. This year we have hit a record high of over $7,000! This makes a big difference for our troops, and especially for some of our kids that would find scouting to be a financial hardship without opportunities such as this.
I have found you and your employees to be very professional and fun to work with. The scouts have enjoyed the camaraderie of the Blitz selling events and the friendly competition of the “cash grab bonanza” incentive.
We look forward to continuing our relationship again next year. Please feel free to use this letter to you as a reference to any who are considering this fundraising opportunity for their organization

To Whom It May Concern:
I would like to take a moment and talk about Jon Frank and Impact Fundraising - thank you for allowing me to do so.
I am the Director of Student Ministries at Edinbrook Church in Brooklyn Park. Our ministry involves a variety of events and activities, many of which cost money - money that needs to be paid in order for our students to be able to participate. We make every attempt to minimize these expenses, keeping things as affordable for our students and families as we can. It can be tough at times. Because of this reality, we offer a fundraising opportunity.
Please know - I do not enjoy fundraising. It can be a lot of work and often, does not produce good results. However (please keep reading) we have found a fundraising event that has produced the following:
• Minimal organizational time on my part (which is great - Jon Frank does the bulk of the work).
• A great return on our investment (good $$ for the time invested).
• Huge student and parent participation
• Students raise a ton of money.
Our youth ministry has partnered with Jon Frank and Impact Fundraising since 2003. As a result of this partnership, over the years our students have raised a total of almost $100,000 - which includes just over $17,000 last year. This is amazing! Every penny raised by our students goes directly into their student accounts and can be used to fund any activity or event we do. Our students have used this money to fund mission trips, conferences, retreats, and fun activities. The joy that I have seen since 2003 is that because of our partnership with Impact Fundraising, more students have been able to attend more activities - and parents have been able to spend less money to send their students on these activities. Selling coupon cards is work. However, it is fun and rewarding. It accomplishes exactly what we want it to for the benefit of our students and their families.
This year we are enjoying our 15th year of partnership with Jon Frank and Impact Fundraising. To be perfectly honest - I see no reason why we wouldn’t continue with Jon for at least another 15 years and beyond.
I highly recommend that you give Jon Frank and Impact Fundraising a chance. I don't think you will be disappointed.

I’d like to introduce Jon Frank, President of Impact Fundraising. Jon contacted our Chanhassen H.S. Boy’s Soccer Team last summer concerning a fundraising event. He explained there was a real opportunity to make significant dollars for our Program. We were skeptical but agreed to meet with him to go over his offering.
I’d say that was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made! Jon puts together a custom ‘Fundraising Card’ that’s centric to your local area businesses – places like McDonalds, Perkins, Subway, Dairy Queen, Arby’s and Kwik Trip. Every business on the card has ‘unlimited use’ for a year! And some are good for any location across the Twin Cities.
I’ve done two fundraisers with Impact: Chan Boy’s Soccer (60 participants) and my son’s Bloomington U18 Summer Club Soccer Team (24 participants). Both were a huge success raising $9,100 and $5,400 respectively!
This a a highly organized, well thought out Fundraising Program. Jon has been in business for over 17 years and his track record speaks for itself helping over 2,000 organizations.
Please feel free to personally contact me if you have any questions.
