- A Great, Easy, and Profitable Fundraiser for Your Group!
EXCLUSIVE OFFER FOR PASTOR2YOUTH.COM USERS!!!
If you've ever organized or participated in a fundraising
project for a school, sports team, church or other nonprofit
organization, then you know what a huge commitment and hassle
this can be. Lost or missing inventory, incomplete order forms,
distributing catalogs, and having to go back a second time
to deliver products can turn your fundraising project into
a time-consuming, logistical nightmare.
Unless you select the Go-Card as your fundraising program.
The GO-CARD is a wallet-size plastic discount card that displays
your organization's name, photo or logo on the front side,
and 12 discount offers from area restaurants and businesses
on the back side. Your organization sells the GO-CARDS to
the public and keeps 80% of the proceeds!*
Card holding customers present the Go-Card at these restaurants
and businesses to receive a discount; the Go-Cards are valid
for a one-year period.
* Your Organization Wins … when you see how simple the process
is and how much money you can raise
* The Merchants Win ... because
the Go-Cards increase their sales and number of customers
Win ... because they save money at local restaurants and businesses
HIGH PROFITS … WITHOUT the HASSLES of other fundraising methods!
No car washes
No bake sales
No catalogs to carry around
No melted candy to mess with
No magazine subscription forms to fill out
No need to go back a second time to deliver the product
AND... you don't even have to pay for the cards up-front.
You can have 30 days of fundraising to make all your money
before you have to pay for them.

"Once there was a youth worker who, for the most part, loved
her job. She loved building relationships with her youth,
she loved teaching volunteers how to engage youth, she loved
helping parents learn better ways to disciple their children,
among many other things.
She had taken over a thriving group a year before, after
the last youth director retired. Though the group had decreased
in numbers, that was to be expected, right? After all, the
group had been in transition. And the kids who were showing
up really wanted to be there!
Though she loved her job, she didn’t like all of it. She
was free spirited, so she couldn’t understand when people
got angry that she missed a deadline. She would often make
excuses why the material that was supposed to be planned
and communicated by such-and-such a date wasn’t ready to
go after all. But what was the big deal? She had it under
control. Why couldn’t these people get off her back and let
her do her job when she wanted to do it? People loved her
creativity and enthusiasm, but the people who worked closely
with her often couldn’t handle her last-minute nature. She
couldn’t help but criticize them for their lack of flexibility.
She didn’t see what the big deal was. She was getting it
done. They were the ones with the problem. Their expectations
of her were ridiculous and irrelevant.
Then there was the youth worker down the street from that
other church. She’d been there for a little over a year.
She, too, loved her job for the same reasons the other girl
did. She understood that she couldn’t be everything to everyone,
so she spent most of her time pouring into the volunteers
to help them disciple every youth in the church. She effectively
communicated with parents and loved to help them understand
the youth culture. She loved her team!
She took over when the last person who did the job moved
away. Though there was a breaking-in period, the group had
actually grown a bit. The kids often brought their friends.
And what was even greater was that she was able to recruit
But she had her weaknesses, too. She was free-spirited and
often struggled with deadlines. She had a tough time finding
traction, and she had to discipline herself to get the day
to day stuff accomplished. But when someone approached her
with their concerns, she, along with her team, strategized
to help her overcome her deficiencies. She surrounded herself
with people who cared about her and the youth ministry to
help her be accountable to them and to herself. She realized
that the bar was set high, but with the help of her team,
she was able to successfully maintain a healthy rhythm in
How do you handle criticism?"
