Online shopping has become a social norm in our society. 51% of Americans prefer online shopping vs. traditional. Although that is only 1 in 2 of Americans in the last year, the real statistic that should have your attention is the 23% increase of online purchases over last year. We are living in a digital era where consumers prefer convenience over all else. The way we fundraise is even changing as more and more groups are leaning toward online donations. It’s important to find a fundraising partner that has the tools to help you succeed on and offline.
Century Resources’ online web store offers a personalized online store to each group that fundraises with us. We offer tools that help Group Leaders, Students, as well as Parents to spread the word about their Fundraiser.
