Can I have more than 2 weeks in the fall?

No, each group is given 2 weeks only regardless of group size.

What if my fundraising submission package gets lost in the mail?

This unfortunately happens at least twice a year. Please take a copy or a scan of all your receipts and your remittance form so that if it does get lost in the mail, the fundraising department will process the copy or scan.

How can I effectively promote the program to my members?

If you have ordered flyers the best way is to attach a small write up or sticker on each flyer that instructs your member to A) shop on the appropriate dates B) remind them of your group name at that they must say it to the cashier c) inform them where and to whom to give the receipt to afterwards. The most successful groups have been those that have been very clear with the instructions. And for those informing by email the same info must be clear.
