ACE FUNDRAISING

Our Philosophy in fundraising is fairly simple.

We like gaining business through word of mouth because that means we’re doing something right. We are honest, straight shooters that like to have fun. We know no one likes doing a fundraiser, so we do our best to make it fun and painless, and, most of all, profitable. We figure, if you’re going to do a fundraiser, why not do it the right way and “all in”, so to speak

OUR PROGRAM

How does it work you ask?

It’s really not that difficult. However, we have seen that it usually takes MORE work to do it incorrectly than to do it right.

  • Upon contacting us, we will ask you a few questions. We will get things figured out as to which product will suit you the best. Depending on that product, we may need pictures, schedules, or a few other items to help customize your product.
  • We will work on a Start Date and Time. Normally, at the start, we will come and talk to your group of sellers to help explain the product and the process and answer any questions. Sometimes, depending on time, we will simply mail cards to you to get things going.
  • Once the sale gets started, it really is in the hands of your sellers. We will recommend that you sell for one to two weeks max. Any fundraiser that goes longer than two weeks just gets stale.
  • At the end of the selling period, we will schedule either a “Blitz” or a turn-in date. A Blitz is a 3 hour time frame where all sellers will go out and sell any unsold items or sell more. This is done to help end the sale and have a strong finish.

“This is a great clinic very excited to be back here, it’s one of the best clinics going around the nation right now. Great opportunity to be back here in my home state, great to come back and see familiar faces that I have seen years and years ago still coming to clinics. Great clinic, great set up, so very well run and includes great speakers.”

Chris Ash, Head Coach - Rutgers University

“I can’t say enough about the IFCA and this clinic so for my coaching staff and myself the opportunity to give back to all these Iowa coaches, it means the world to me and I know it means the world to our program, so we are honored be involved and grateful the support that we are given.”

Matt Campbell, Head Coach - Iowa State University

“It’s really overwhelming because there are so many coaches here, it’s a great event.  I spoke at a Glazier event a month ago and I think there are more coaches here, then there were at the Glazier events. For us it is great PR to be down here with the Iowa guys that we have and hope to build those relationships with these coaches.”

Clint Brown, Defensive Coordinator/Defensive Ends Coach - South Dakota State University

“Unbelievable growth, what a tremendous clinic. Great attendance from coaches not only in Iowa, but other states as well, it is great for our staff to be involved, extremely organized and well run…looking forward to next years already.”

Kirk Ferentz, Head Football Coach - University of Iowa

“It’s a great opportunity for Hudl to get out to these clinics to interact with our coaches face to face that are using Hudl, let them now about our new features and new products, when ACE Fundraising started this football clinic here in Iowa it is a great opportunity to partner with someone we respect a lot and have a booth here and coaches can get all the information about Hudl.”

Allison Regan, HUDL

“This is a great clinic for us, we have been here since the first year and haven’t missed it, always look forward to it.”

Dan Bennett, Dannco

“Awesome event and one of the biggest showings as for guys signing up for it…these clinics are awesome opportunity to talk to coaches, learn a little bit, build comradery and bring what we learn back to our own campuses and help the kids.”

“They have grown the clinic every year, and a good mix of coaches loaded with great speakers.”

“Jason has led the fundraising for Ames High Soccer for over a decade now. Each Blitz night we do brings in thousands of dollars to help run and sustain our competitive program. He is an advocate for our program and our athletes. He is also a fan. Once you use this program, you will never have a reason to look anywhere else again. It provides a quality product that people want and continue to ask for. It is quickly enacted and it brings in the money you need.”

Chad Zmolek, Ames High School - Head Boys Soccer Coach

“I love coming back and speaking at these events, the Midwest is a special place for me its home. Getting to comeback to Iowa means a lot to me, both my parents were high school coaches and teachers.  I respect so much the job that these people do, so whenever I have a chance to give back I will take advantage of it.”

Scott Frost, Head Football Coach - University of Central Florida

“The key to this is being around the Iowa football coaches, nice to get the energy and the feel of the room, and be around guys talking football.”

Mark Farley, Head Football Coach - University Northern Iowa
