How Do Seasonal Fundraisers Work?

Holiday gift spending exceeded $1 trillion nationwide in 2019. This is why most schools focus so much of their fundraising efforts during the fall season.

Fall and spring variety brochures bring in the most money for school groups. Having a fundraiser before a holiday, or any special occasion, is a great time to raise money.

We offer 2 ways groups can raise money selling seasonal products. They can either take orders first by showing items in a catalog, or order a product and sell it “in hand”.

If you want to collect money first, brochure fundraising is the way to go. We’ll send you enough brochures for everyone in your group. They’ll also receive order forms and money collection envelopes.

After taking orders, send us your order forms for processing. You’ll then receive a sales report and invoice. Finally, we’ll work with you to schedule your delivery date.

Or you may want to order the product first, then sell it. You'll need to first submit a purchase order. You can determine how much to order using our ‘Calculate Your Profit’ tool.

You’ll have 15 days to pay your invoice after receiving your product. This gives you time to sell and collect the money.

Seasonal Fundraising

Seasonal fundraisers leverage holidays and timely needs and interest to deliver big results. Consider an annual sale to establish a tradition your community can look forward to.

Considerations for a Fall Campaign

Sales campaigns focus on gift giving, especially during the fall or winter. To get the most out of your opportunity, make sure you’ve selected the perfect product for the needs of the season. If it’s springtime, focus on Mom, Easter, or Earth Day.

If it’s a fall or winter program, try putting more attention on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Both take advantage of a time when people are willing to spend money. Why not offer them a chance to buy a quality gift that also gives back to the community?

Unique Fundraising Ideas for Spring

Spring is all about the outdoors. Field days at school, pool days over spring break, and even trips to the beach can make for fun adventures. Maybe you want to come back from spring break with enough money to go on that big band trip to D.C.

Make this possible by focusing on gifts for moms. Items such as flower seeds or candles from our spring catalogs will make her day. Offer a variety of food mixes, which can be prepared to enjoy later at a picnic in the warm weather.

With adult supervision, try making sales outside. Consider the neighborhood park, the clubhouse pool, or the local community center. A successful spring campaign not only focuses on outdoor items, but has them there as well! Meet people where they want to be and sell where they can see themselves using the products.

Seasonal Catalogs for Fall

Fall fundraisers should be even more focused on gift giving. After all, it isn’t the holidays without a little retail therapy. Just like spring, they can be very niche. Start by identifying the holiday you’re focusing on, or the target audience. Are you concentrating on Thanksgiving and mothers busy in the kitchen? Or are you selling for Christmas, with an emphasis on gifts for everyone?

Stress how a fall shopper is a one-stop shop for gifts and wrapping needs. Come up with some creative “complete package” gift options. This is where you can pair some coordinated items with beautiful gift wrap. If you want to focus on stocking stuffers at a lower price point, 'Snow Much Fun' may be your brochure.

Our seasonal catalogs open a world of sales opportunities. You can connect the dots and select a program aligned with the right product that makes sense for the time of year. With some dedicated effort, you should be able to reach your goals. Make sure to finish selling at least 3 weeks before the holiday or special event you’re planning. That will ensure customers get their orders in time for celebrating.
