FUND RAISING PROPOSAL

The Concept:  

I would like to share with you a concept that can generate significant income for (a school, a community organization, a church....) such as yours. 

Car washes have traditionally been successful fund-raising activities. However, in more and more communities this wasteful use of our precious and limited supplies of drinking water is now prohibited.

The idea of a "waterless" car wash is new and unique and benefits you and your (school, community organization, church....) in several ways:

The Company: 

DWG International™ is the pioneer in waterless and water-saving technologies, the only company that manufactures and distributes the world famous Waterless Car Wash product, DRI WASH 'n GUARD.  They offer a complete line of auto and home products that take advantage of the latest scientific breakthroughs.

The Plan:                                     

Conduct a Waterless Car Wash with revenue derived primarily from "pledges".

Income Potential:   

Your (students, members, supporters...) are provided with flyers to distribute to friends, around the neighborhood, on local bulletin boards, etc. and pledge sheets (see attached sample):

Example of income potential:

100 pledge sheets  x  25 pledges per sheet =  2500 pledges x .10 for each car washed = $250.00 income for each car washed x 100 cars= $25,000 total income potential (i.e. $10 from each person who pledged) for every 100 cars washed.

Estimated Cost:

From DWG or Local DWG Distributor
Based on 100 cars using Dri Wash 'n Guard (allowing 3.8 oz./vehicle — Almost TWICE the amount normally used)     $4.67 x 100 cars = $467.40  (2 cases of Dri Wash n Guard - 32 oz which comes with a free 8 oz applicator bottle = 2 cases X 6 bottles X 32 oz = 384 oz). (Note: price excludes shipping)

12 applicator bottles (based on 6 teams of 4) = $48  (Need 24 total & 12 come with the product). (Note: price excludes shipping)

From Wal-Mart/Costco etc.
100% Cotton Terry Cloths ====> Approx. -  $100  - each person needs 2 towels, one to wipe, one to buff, and needs to replace the wiping towel for every 4 cars washed and the buffing towel for every 8 cars washed (they are each only doing a quarter of a car).  If a team of four does 16 cars they will each need 6 towels X 24 people = 144 towels (+ have some extras on hand too).

Total Cost  = ~ $675 (including shipping and some variable towel cost), or $6.75 per vehicle

*Note: Containers suggesting donations from those who received the free wash can often entirely offset the cost of your supplies!

Manpower: 

Assign a "team" to each vehicle - 4 people is best. A team of 4 can wash a car in approximately 10 minutes.

Have each team member assigned 1/4 section of the vehicle and instruct them on proper procedure for cleaning. They work 1 1/2 hour shifts and then train their replacement and turn their 8-oz applicator bottle over to their replacement.                                      

With 6 teams of 4 each it should be possible to wash 100 cars in 3 hours.

Optional:

Follow-up:

All participants register name, address, and phone number to validate total count used in collecting on pledges.

Optional: 

This list can be used to send out thank-you letters and suggesting that the recipient contact you :

And, best of all, the vehicles you have done with Dri Wash 'n Guard are more than just "washed" — they have been polished and protected as well!

10)   ____      Designate waiting area with shade, seating and possible refreshments. 

11)    ____     As cars are left to be washed driver should be given form requesting name, address, telephone number. It is critical to insure this form is collected before driver leaves site.

12)    ____   Set up product and opportunity tables.
