When people think about fundraisers, they think about car washes first, and then maybe donuts. But definitely car washes first. Wouldn’t it be great if you could raise money without having to make posters, jump up and down on the side of the road? And better yet, not even wash the dirty cars that pull in? Of course it would! That’s where Tidal Wave comes in!

With our fundraising program, you can raise money for your group, and fast! The best part is that when you partner with us, there’s no need for buckets, sponges, or flagging down cars. Start raising money for your organization today by downloading the fundraising application. Learn more about how you can win with a Tidal Wave fundraiser in our video below.

How a Tidal Wave Fundraiser Works

The Tidal Wave Fundraiser process is so simple!

  1. Complete and submit a fundraiser application.
  2. Your group purchases car wash tickets ($20 value) for $5 each.
  3. Your group sells car wash tickets for $10 each.
  4. For each $10 ticket sold, your group makes $5.
  5. Return any unsold tickets and settle up.

Your donors will enjoy a $20 car wash for just $10 and you can raise plenty of money for your organization! For example:

If You Sell Your Organization Will Make
100 tickets $500
500 tickets $2,500
1000 tickets $5,000
2000 tickets $10,000
