About us

TheWindyCityFundraiser.com is owned and operated as its sole company website by Creative Fundraising Ideas, Inc. in Illinois.

We are experienced. Our principals started helping groups with their fundraisers in 1979. We have been incorporated and helping groups raise millions of dollars since 1986. Many of our clients have worked with us since those early years, and are more friends than clients by now. Don’t be surprised if we remember you from one year to the next. We love our clients!

We service nationwide. Although happily ensconced in the suburbs of Chicago, we help groups anywhere in the continental USA. A few of our products are available only in the Midwest, but most can ship anywhere. We ship from any 1 of 8 available warehouses. No, we are not too big to care about you; just big enough to get the job done for your group efficiently.

We are flexible. We have helped groups raise hundreds of dollars and others raise tens of thousands. We can help you figure out how to reach your goals too!

We strive to be responsible citizens. We utilize the services of as many developmentally handicapped adults as possible in our business. While you will never talk to one on the phone, be assured they are an important part of our corporate culture. We have been repeatedly and publicly recognized for our commitment in helping the less fortunate. And yes, we all take great pride in that.

We are environmentally aware. We try to be sensitive to the needs of future generations in our use of natural resources. We use recycled boxes from clean sources when possible. Sure, we can’t put our name on the outside, but we are willing to forgo that if we can recycle and reuse. All of our invoices, computer tallies, and letters are generally printed on 100% recycled paper.  So no trees were cut down for many of the boxes and most of the paper we use. We feel good about our commitment to the environment.

We are committed to client satisfaction. We know that many companies say this, but consider that well over 90% of our clients every single year are repeat customers. Some have worked with us for more than 2 decades. We want to “earn our spurs” with you the first time, and work with you and your group for as long as you need money. Our clients span the entire continental USA, but we give each one the same “hometown care” so that they remember us next time.

The highest compliment you can give us is to recommend us to a friend. We won’t let you down. So if you have a problem, call us and we will solve it. The answer to any reasonable request is always “yes.” But we won’t know unless you tell us. Then perhaps you can trust us enough to recommend a friend.

Thanks for the opportunity to help your group raise the money you need.
