Hello, it's Jacques, creator of Fundraising Magic...
I've spent the last 30 years traveling as an entertainer: 50+ countries, everywhere from palaces in Dubai to jungles in Congo. My passion, my mission, is doing fundraising magic shows for schools and community groups. It won't raise you millions but will put a decent chunk in your account. And we'll have fun doing it. I'm working with some really cool people, would love to have you on board!
Jacques le Sueur
We kick off show day with an afternoon show for families, And I'll show you how to partner with a local school to fill the venue. We'll be selling items including popcorn, candyfloss and balloon animals during interval to bump up our profit. One lucky kid will also win membership in my online Beginners Magic Course. You'll make enough from this show alone to make the entire project worthwhile.
Making money & creating goodwill in your community.
This is the crux of the whole project. We'll be hosting a pop-up theatre show for people in your community who have an interest in your cause and the means to donate properly. I'll lead you through how to set up the venue and get everything sponsored so you can make as much money as possible from the event.
Building a group who will support you for years to come.
Once we've settled on a date and venue for the show you'll send me the details and within a day or two I'll send you a .zip folder with all the tools you need to promote the event. Posters, flyers, emails, correspondence to send when securing your venue. Everything. Each item will have your details inserted so all you need to do is print and promote.
99% of the work done for you.
Along with the promotional tools you'll get a dedicated webpage for your event. Ticket sales will be handled professionally through Computicket. It's a great way to frame your show in the community and to help convince sponsors to come on board. Again, everything done for you to make your journey as hassle-free as possible.
A professional online toolkit to promote & sell tickets.
Ticket sales are great, but we want to pull in as much cash as possible for you, right? A piggyback fundraiser runs alongside your main event, as a satellite project. Auctions, selling advertising in a show programme, getting sponsors on board to donate time, prizes and cash. I'll run you through several which plug in smoothly to your event.
Income streams which run parallel to your show.
Each guest will receive a printed souvenir programme of the show, and this is prime space to sell advertising to sponsors. You'll receive a complete system to land these sponsors and get them on board. Emails, webpages selling the idea, everything mapped out for you so you can just run with it immediately.
A memorable keepsake of the evening.
A silent auction is different from a regular auction in that bids are written on a page next to the item and the highest bidder at the end of the evening wins the prize. We're going to set up a magic-themed auction for your evening event and I'll run you through how to get prizes sponsored and set everything up smoothly. We'll also map out how to create buzz on social media before the event, using these prizes as a drawcard.
A streamlined way to get prizes and raise money.
Having tools is one thing. Knowing how to use them is another. You will receive a printed workbook leading you step-by-step through the project, from the first meeting announcing it to your team right through to the final thank you email sent out to everyone. There is also an online members area which supplements this book with details on each element.
Everything mapped out to make things as easy as possible for you.
Nothing. We split the evening show ticket sales down the middle, 50/50.
Everything else (matinee show ticket sales ... sponsorships ... selling advertising in the souvenir programme ... income from the silent auction ... cash from every other piggyback fundraiser) is yours to keep.
The fundraising package I offer is a day of shows as well as all the training and tools you’ll need to host and promote the show. And most importantly sell out tickets. We also offer several additional fundraising ideas which run parallel to the show and earn you lumps more than just tickets sales. It’s a unique system which we’re very proud of. Click here and I'll email you full details.
I’ve entertained around the world for over three decades, performed in nearly every country you can imagine. I still do a fair amount of work for corporate events and celebrity parties, but my heart is in the fundraising shows I do for schools and community groups around Africa. I’ve also had the good fortune to entertain people from all walks of life, everyone from Nelson Mandela and Beyonce, to child soldiers in the Congo. Magic truly is my life and my passion, and I’m looking forward to sharing it with your group soon.
Like anything worthwhile, there is some work to be done. I’ve done as much of the graft and grind as I can for you, the rest has been kept as simple as possible. You walk the promotion steps I give you and the rest falls into place. Abracadabra. 😉
I'm putting my money where my mouth is: we will split the ticket sales for the evening show down the middle 50/50. And only due on show day. So everything else you earn from each of the piggyback fundraisers and the second matinee show is yours to keep. That's honestly as risk-free for you as I could make it.
Magic is good clean fun, perfect for audiences of all ages. It has a built in wow factor which has made it a favourite on television for decades. Just look at how much magic is presented on shows like America’s Got Talent, Penn & Teller’s Fool Us, and the Carbonaro Effect. I offer a solid fundraiser which will bring in decent money while building good name for your group in the community. Win win.
I perform worldwide, and besides Cape Town, Durban and Joburg a lot of my shows are up through Africa in places like Gabon, Nigeria and Tanzania. Travel costs are additional to the show fee, but I'll teach you how to get this sponsored by a local company.
You have a couple days leeway to see if it’s viable for your group. I’ll coach you as to the best ways to get things pulled in line if you just can’t create buzz about the show. And if things fall through completely we’ll part with a handshake and a hug. I'm committed to making this awesome for you.
Take a second and enter your details below. I'll shoot through an email with more details about how everything works. Show dates are limited each month, so I'll update you when slots in the calendar open up. You can decide if you want on board and we can work from there.
