Since 2005, CFS has been using a unique fundraising approach coined, "The Mattress Fundraiser", selling mattresses in schools, to help music departments, athletic teams, and many other extracurricular programs raise the funds they need to buy instruments, uniforms, equipment, and more. Over this time CFS has not only secured its position as the nation's leader in mattress fundraising events, but they are also a national leader in the cause-based fundraising industry.

"I am extremely passionate about owning and operating a CFS territory for the past 10 years because I love helping teachers, directors and coaches hit their fundraising goals, year after year," said Missy Yelton, CFS Twin Cities owner. "The monies raised fund trips, competitions, new instruments, equipment, uniforms and much more. We don't just sell mattresses and products the community needs, we help kids have the best experiences possible, and that means a lot to me."

With a growing network of 80+ independently owned and operated territories nationwide, the organization is committed to providing high-impact, no-cost fundraising solutions to schools and groups by selling high-value products to the community.

Over the last several years, CFS has expanded its fundraising catalog beyond just mattresses and has embraced technology to run many of these programs from the palm of their hand - allowing the organization to continue supporting communities even in the face of a global pandemic.

"It's been quite a journey, and while we are celebrating this major milestone, we are dedicated to reaching our next goal, raising $100 million for schools across the country," said Michael Logue, CFS's national sales manager.
