I have had the pleasure of working with John Taylor for 15 years. Herbert Slater Middle School has stayed with John and Valley of the Moon Fundraising for a variety of factors. First, John
brings the kids into the equation up front. He allows them to be involved with choosing the incentives they believe their peers will be motivated by, and allows them to make decisions about the
process. Not only does this get the student body more involved, but it is also an approach I personally believe works when dealing with kids. Secondly, John provides excellent service. He works hard
to meet the demands of all staff involved, and when we need things to happen a certain way, John makes sure they are done. Lastly, the product John Taylor and Valley of the Moon Fundraising provides
is outstanding. We have not had any complaints from our community, and I have personally been involved with all the products, because my children have participated in all the fundraising activities
over the last 6 years.
The most important thing you get when working with Valley of the Moon Fundraising is loyalty. John realizes he not only provides a service to school, but to the entire community. John attends community events, and has contributed his own time and resources to events that support the students in our community. John does this because he knows helping schools is a community effort, and we all get out of public education what we put into in.
Our middle school has worked with John Taylor and Valley of the Moon Fundraising for many years. We continue to contract with them because of the personalized service John and his team provide us.
We are always made to feel as if we are the most important group they have to work with. And John, in particular, always goes the extra mile to make the activities director, the school's
administration, secretarial staff and leadership students who help run the fundraiser, feel valued. We are given room to make the fundraiser our own, and John works with us on the details so that the
theme, the prizes, the incentives, are all tailored to meet our particular group's needs. The prizes are constantly updated to what is popular amongst middle schoolers, the cookie dough is delicious,
and the magazines are the staple that everyone waits to renew year after year. There are many other companies out there that we could do business with, but we stick with Valley of the Moon because it
simply works for us!
Our experience with Valley of the Moon Fundraising and John Taylor was exceptional. Selling cookie dough was our first major fund-raiser of the year, and John was extremely helpful and informative. He was able to get the kids motivated and excited to sell the product, which, in turn, helped us to reach our goal! Not only was he helpful with paperwork, he was great with follow-up and answering any questions that I had. He even stayed and helped us sort our product and hand it out. Talk about great service! We look forward to working with John again in the future for our fundraisers.
