Phoenix, AZ (WiredPRNews.com) Fundraising has never been easier or tasted so good thanks to a new fundraising program offered by Outrageous Olive Oils & Vinegars. The Phoenix based retailer believes its new program sets itself apart from traditional fundraising program because it doesn’t require the schools or volunteers to administer the program.
Whether it’s for sports teams, fine arts, clubs or causes, schools are always looking for new and innovative ideas for raising money. In the current economic climate, every dollar counts and many schools are looking for new ways to raise funds for programs and supplies.
Schools across the nation are facing massive budget shortfalls. In the City of Phoenix alone, K-12 schools are facing a $59 million budget shortfall and it’s a problem that will continue to severely impact school programs.
“We are proud to be able to give back to the community via our school fundraising program. We are a family owned and operated business and raised our kids here in Arizona so we understand the struggles that both schools and families face in this economy.” Said John Griffin, Owner of Outrageous Olive Oils & Vinegars.
Outrageous Olive Oils offers more than 35 flavored Extra Virgin Olive Oils and Traditional Balsamic Vinegars that are bottled daily to ensure freshness. The Company currently has retail “tasting” stores at the Frontier Shops in Old Town Scottsdale and also in the Paradise Valley Mall.
“Schools can raise 20% without every having to raise a finger or personally touch one product themselves” says Griffin, “Our program offers parents, neighbors, friends and relatives the ability to stock their kitchens with healthy, high quality gourmet products while helping their school raise much needed funds.”
The Outrageous Olive Oils Fundraising program also allows out-of-town family members and friends the ability to shop online through the Company’s website (www.OliveOilAZ.com) and the school can still receive 20% of all those sales as well.
“Our students deserve the best” adds Griffin. “but it’s also important for us to help parents find more value for their money beyond the traditional fundraising items such as cookie dough, magazines, or candy.”
