  • Order from 1 – 10,000 booklets no order too big or too small.
  • Scratch & Help booklets are personalised to your group by having your team or groups digital photo and personal fundraising message on the front cover. This is free on ALL orders! (even on single booklet orders) Check out some sample designs from recent fundraising clients here.

  • Fast, friendly, professional staff who are committed to making sure your order is processed as quickly and accurately as possible.

The Fundraising Dilemma

Have you ever had someone knock on your door seeking a donation for a worthy cause and not been sure how much they expect you to give?

For many people it’s easier to say “Not today thank you” than to have to think about how much is appropriate or worry about giving too little or too much.

The Solution

Scratch and Help Booklets solve this problem by allowing the person the ability to reveal their donation by scratching off a sliver scratchy panel on the inside of the booklet.

The maximum donation is $3 and minimum is 50c which is within most peoples comfort zone – meaning you’ll get lots of people saying “Yes I’d love to help out

When comparing fundraising options it is important to consider the percent profit you will receive for your efforts. Other fundraising options such as selling chocolate, taking pizza orders, sausage sizzles etc. only let you keep 40% of the money that you make. Scratch & Help booklets let you keep between 80-90% of the money raised and saves you the hassles of order taking or guessing how many units you might sell. - More profit, less work....It's fundraising the smart way!

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of groups are suited to using this method of fundraising?

We get asked this question a lot! Any group or individual who wants to raise money quickly.

We have had many sports teams and church groups use these booklets as well as entire schools, music groups, charities, exchange students, individual athletes, people going overseas on a mission etc.

If you feel that you or your group are raising money for a good, genuine reason, then the Scratch and Help Booklets are right for you.

What comes with each 'Scratch Pack'?

Each ‘Scratch Pack’ contains:

  • 1 “Scratch & Help” Booklet (with custom designed cover)
  • 1 ‘Tips for Participants’ sheet
  • 1 Introduction Sticker
  • 1 Zip Lock collection bag

*Every order also receives a ‘Tips for the Organiser’ sheet

What makes the 'Scratch & Help' booklets so successful?

A number of reasons:

1. It’s a simple process for all people involved. The organiser just needs to set up the campaign and monitor the progress of the group. Usually, with other fundraising products, the organiser does most of the work. The fundraisers get an instant “yes/no” answer and aren’t required to do much more than get out and about and ask people for some support. The potential sponsor can make a quick easy decision whether or not to support the fundraiser with no decisions about ordering or time spent browsing through a catalog.

2. People just love to scratch off that silver stuff! They see it and want to know what’s underneath!

3. Fundraising participants feel a sense of ownership when the ‘Scratch Booklets’ have their photos and team/school colours on the front cover. They also get rewarded based on how much effort they put in and can see the dots being scratched and the money being raised – this helps a lot with motivation.

What if I can't pay for my order up front?

No problem. We have easy payment terms available for people who meet our credit criteria which allows you two weeks to pay for your order. e.g. When you order we will send you your booklets, then after 2 weeks you pay for your order.

How do I pay for my order?

You can pay online with a credit card or by direct deposit into our bank account.

How can I place an order for some fundraising scratch packs?

The best way to order is to fill in the online order form on the Order Page of this website (see the menu above). This is so we can make sure that we have all the information we need to fill your order quickly.

About how long does it take for someone to complete a 'Scratch Booklet'?

It depends on the individuals motivation. Some people can get a ‘Scratch Booklet’ finished in a couple of days, others can take a lot longer. On average 1 booklet per week is a reasonable expectation

Are you a New Zealand company?

Yes, we are a GST registered New Zealand Limited Liability company called Fast Fundraising New Zealand Limited with registered offices in Tauranga. We have been operating since 2003 and have a sister company in Australia. We send product all over NZ and the pacific. Feel free to contact us any time on 0800 210 777

Can we have our photo/logo and wording on the booklet?

Yes, on the order form there is a place for you to type what words you want on the cover. When you submit the form you can then email us a photo/image for the cover. We will design you a cover and send you a proof (if requested). You can either give the go-ahead for production if you are happy with the design or you can suggest any changes you want made and we will gladly make these for you. Once you have approved a cover design then we aim to have the booklets produced and sent to you within 3-5 working days.

Can I return any unused booklets?

Unfortunately not, because each booklet is customised to the fundraising school/team/individual.

How many 'Scratch & Help' fundraising booklets can/should I order?

You can order from 1 to 1,000 ‘Scratch Packs.’ It’s a good idea to start out with 1-2 booklet per person in your fundraiser and maybe get a few extras for those who need more.

Can I order extra 'Scratch Booklets' if we run out?

Yes. We will quickly be able to send you additional booklets because all of the design work has been done previously.

I've been looking around at some American sites that offer a similar product except their booklets come with discount coupon vouchers to give to the people donating. Why don't yours?

In our trials we had some fundraising groups use the “Scratch & Help” booklets with the coupons and some fundraising groups without the coupons. The groups that were not using the coupons raised more money in a significantly shorter time period compared with the group that had the coupons. We found that when potential sponsors were told that they would receive a discount coupon sheet if they scratched off a few dots, their focus shifted from ‘helping out the fundraiser’ to ‘what is this person trying to sell me?’ They began analyzing whether or not the coupons were something they would buy. People were getting turned off by the fact that they felt they were ‘buying’ these coupons when they could get them for free on the back of supermarket dockets and on the internet.
