Beyond the Bake Sale

“Beyond the Bake Sale”

Q. My Family, Career and Community Leaders of America ASB club would like to do a Pampered Chef fundraiser. Pampered Chef does a profit sharing fundraiser that is clearly articulated to the kids. Kids check out catalogs and then go sell then receive a percentage of sales. Is this okay to do? Also, is it okay if the consultant is a school staff member?

A. If the consultant gives all the commission to the FCCLA school group it would work. Otherwise you have two problems: (1) Conflict of Interest for the employee receiving a financial advantage due to his/her job position, and (2) a PR issue due to not seeking other interested consultants in your area.
