    I am interested to know if any of you have done an Electronics Fundraiser at your facility? If so, were the electronics brand name, good quality, and was it successful?

    Several years ago we did an electronics fundraiser. I cannot speak to the quality of the product, but I can share that we ran into issue with the payroll deduction maximums. Because our employees use payroll for so many other services/items, we limit the sales to a maximum of $300 per employee, spread over two pay periods. Our biggest issue was that most of the items were over that amount, and volunteers were stuck explaining why they could not use the entire amount for payroll deduction. It created hard feelings.

    We too had one several years ago and will not have another.  The percentage returned to us was different on different items,(which they did not tell us until after the fact)  the vendor wanted our employee's contact information, and the prices were higher than the same item at retail stores here in town.  All this lead to bad feelings here as well.
