How Does a Specialty Fundraiser Work?

As opposed to using a brochure with a variety of different types of items, many sponsors are looking to feature a more specialized brochure that offers a single product category or theme.

Since so many groups are already selling a variety fall or spring shopper, these sponsors want to stand out from the crowd and are looking for more unique fundraising ideas. This type of brochure is also preferred by many because it’s easier for buyers to pick out what they want.

Once you’ve selected your brochure, we’ll send you brochures, order forms and money collection envelopes for everyone in your group. After you’re group is done taking orders, send us your order forms for processing. We’ll then send you a sales report along with an invoice, and work with you to schedule your delivery date.

Want to estimate how much money your group can make? Simply type your student count and goal into our ‘Calculate Your Profit’ tool located on each of our brochure pages. Your actual profit is the difference between the total money that you collect and your invoice.

Specialty Catalog Fundraisers

Pick an item to wow your customers with a specialty catalog fundraiser. These unique, curated products are sure to set you apart from the pack.

Specialty catalogs show you mean business, because they typically focus on one item but can offer multiple varieties of it. These brochures are a good idea for targeting specific niche audiences, like hazelnut crème coffee for a book club that meets in the early morning.

The Ultimate Coffee Collection brochure happens to be our favorite, mostly because of how no day is complete without a cup of morning joe. The donut shop blend is the best to pair with other bakery items, and even comes in a decaf version. If you’re going to try to sell to the other parents at the book club, try making sure the smell of coffee is in the air when they arrive. Each 11oz bag of coffee yields around 70 cups.

If you’re looking for some name brand recognition, check out Popcornopolis® or Jelly Belly®. Popcornopolis® offers several classic flavors including caramel corn and white cheddar along with unique flavors like cinnamon toast and zebra. All popcorn is popped in coconut oil, has no high fructose corn syrup, and is gluten-free and GMO-free.

On the other hand, Jelly Belly® will be a fun brochure to sell and will definitely get people’s attention. It offers a large selection of jelly bean flavors like bubble gum, cotton candy and Cold Stone®, which is a mix of ice cream parlor flavors. Krispy Kreme® includes five of its favorite flavors as well. And don’t forget about the popular Bean Boozled® game because it will surely sell.

Another specialty catalog option are our tumblers which can be customize with your school name, logo and colors. Teams can show people their tumbler brochure to raise money for tournaments or competitions. The tumblers feature a wrap-around customizable graphic that could adorn a team’s group photo and logo.

The 22 oz. plastic Tritan tumbler is BPA free, microwave and dish washer safe and comes with a lifetime guarantee. The personalization will help raise awareness for your cause and serve as a regular reminder of school support and spirit.

Candle & Flower Fundraisers

Specialty brochures are a great option to the large variety shopper for raising money. One of our favorite specialty brochures is the Candle Cottage brochure. Whether it’s for a back-to-school present for teachers, a birthday present for Mom, or a gift from a real estate agent to a new homebuyer, candles are ideal gifts.

They’re also in almost everybody’s home (7 out of every 10 Americans to be exact!), which means they have wide appeal. These candles are perfect for holiday fundraisers, if you wanted to sell “gift-able” products.

2 seasonal catalogs include our fall or spring flower lines. Our flower catalogs are eco-friendly, smell wonderful, will beautify anyone's garden, and come with a 100% money-back guarantee. Just make sure you know when these programs are offered during the school year.

For this type of fundraiser, you might focus on the niche church market. Sell them after Sunday school or at a church dinner to capitalize on your target audience. However, there’s such a large selection of flower and plant bulbs in our flower catalogs, you can sell them to almost everyone.

Positioning a Specialty Brochure Sale

The most important part of selling specialty items is understanding the audience you plan to sell to and identifying the perfect time and place for it. A coffee fundraiser during a school carnival doesn’t really make sense because parents outside in the sun attending an event would be too distracted to think ahead to when they might want coffee.

A gourmet popcorn fundraiser, however, would make complete sense. They may already have some in their hands, which would make selling it as the perfect gift or school snack easy. Put yourself in the customer’s shoes, and you’ll be set up for success.
