Double Good Popcorn is a newly approved fundraising program for SkillsUSA chapters. This online platform sells gourmet popcorn and seeks to make fundraising simple and effective. The fundraising company began working with SkillsUSA Illinois in the middle of last year, and four other state SkillsUSA associations have since partnered to pilot fundraisers as well. Since then, it has helped chapters raise thousands of dollars. Unlike some fundraisers that require a lot of hard work, time or dedication of advisors and student members, Double Good seeks to make fundraising easy. Chapter advisors can set up a fundraiser online and provide a code to their student members to join. Members then set up online stores and share out their link (by social media, personal text or flier) to sell Double Good’s popcorn. They have four days to sell as much as they can. Once the fundraiser is over, the chapter will receive a check for 50% of all sales. Chapters never have to handle money nor touch the popcorn; it is shipped directly to the buyer. The chapter can use these funds to attend SkillsUSA conferences, chapter activities or pay membership dues. A portion of the proceeds will also go to the national and state SkillsUSA associations to help fund future member services. When advisors sign up through an email or at SkillsUSAFundraising.com, they will automatically be sent a sample package of popcorn with steps on how to get started. Double Good can also provide resources to help promote this program such as fliers, postcards, email blast information and social medial content.
