Friday, June 24, 2011

If you are part of a non-profit organization or know of one, you might want to look into Beachbody's program. It's a great way to raise money, help people get fit, and you don't have to sell wrapping paper! lol or candy! Help the community get healthy!
It's completely free for non-profits to sign up, so you have nothing to lose!

I'm looking for organizations to get involved with in the community. If you know of any non-profits that would benefit, please let me know!

How to Get Started with Beachbody Coach Opportunity:

  1. Complete a Team Beachbody Nonprofit Coach Application form, and fax it to Coach Relations.
  2. Appoint a Business Administrator. Each nonprofit organization must appoint an adult (18 years of age or older) to be the account administrator responsible for the organization’s Coach Business Center. NOTE: This individual cannot enroll as a Coach elsewhere in the organization.
  3. Provide proof of 501(c)(3) status. The organization must fax a copy of their IRS 501(c)(3) Determination Letter or an IRS Letter showing they are part of a tax-exempt organization (primarily reserved for public schools).

Frequently Asked Questions about Beachbody Coaching for 501(c)(3):

How does the nonprofit organization make money? There are three ways.
  • First, the organization can purchase products at wholesale and then turn around and sell them at retail (i.e., purchase 50 videos and sell them at a Spring Carnival—making $8.00 per video).
  • Secondly, the organization can send customers directly to their Team Beachbody Web site to order products. This method almost guarantees active status for the organization, should they desire it.
  • Thirdly, the organization (or their sponsor) can enroll other Coaches and build a Team from which they may earn team cycle bonus payments.

What is the message from the organization to their members?

This can be communicated as the healthy alternative fundraiser where members can get healthy and fit—a win-win for everyone.

Who is the administrator for the organization, and what is their role?

An administrator is necessary to manage the nonprofit Coach Business Center. This administrator will need to answer or redirect customer questions. An event chairperson or assigned person responsible for coordinating activities can act as the administrator. The administrator cannot have his or her own Coach business. The administrator must be 18 years of age or older.

Who are the commission checks made out to?

Weekly checks are made out to the charitable organization. The organization can also choose a direct deposit option (EFT—Electronic Funds Transfer), and their weekly checks will be electronically transferred into their account.
