How it Works
How do we raise money?
Your group profits when participants take orders from their flower brochure.
Do participants get a brochure to show?
Yes. Every participant receives a catalog, order form, and money envelope.
Do people purchase live flowers and plants?
Buyers will be able to purchase bulbs, seeds, and roots. We do not carry live plants in soil. Bare root plants are dormant (not actively growing) perennial plants that are dug up and stored without any soil around their roots.
Is money collected up front?
Yes. Supporters can pay by check, cash, money order, or cashier’s check.
Are there any fees?
There are no setup fees or supply costs to start a Spring Flowers fundraiser.
Can participants earn prizes?
We don’t offer any prize programs with our flower programs. But it's a great idea to offer your own prizes. Incentivizing your group can make selling fun and boost sales.
How soon can we start?
After you submit our ‘start a fundraiser’ form you’ll receive an agreement to sign. It will then take at least 7-10 business days to process your order and pack and ship out your supplies.
How long is the fundraiser?
Your sale lasts for 2 weeks. You can always change your end date. Simply let us know before your sale is over.
Can we also raise money online?
Yes, selling online is an important part of your Spring Flowers fundraiser. Before your sale, you’ll receive instructions to pass onto your participants. They’ll be able to invite friends and family to shop at your store.
Raising money online adds a 2nd way for your group to raise money.
Do participants need to register?
Registration is not required. Instead, participants will be able to share your flower store link with friends and family. We recommend using text, social media, and/ or email to help get the word out.
Once people arrive at your store, they’ll see your group’s name and purpose at the top of the page. For example, “ABC High School Band". “We are raising funds for festival entrance fees and travel.” This helps personalize your campaign.
Do we get our own link?
Yes, you will receive your own unique online store link.
Can we accept donations?
Spring Flowers does not offer a donation option.
Is there a minimum order?
There are no order requirements for a Spring Flowers fundraiser.
How much money can we make?
You’ll need to know your group size as well your participant goal. Here’s how you can estimate your profit:
- Participant Count x Participant Item Goal = Items Sold
- Items Sold x Average Retail Price = Gross Sales
- Gross Sales x Profit % = Group Profit
- Let’s say you have 60 participants and you set your participant item goal at 10. The items sold would be 60 participants x 10 Items / participant = 600.
- Next, determine your gross sales. The average retail price is about $14 so your gross sales would be 600 Items x $14 = $8,400.
- Since your profit is 40%, your group profit would be $8,400 x 40% = $3,360.
Keep in mind, our example is only an estimated profit. In reality, participants probably won’t sell the same number of items. In addition, the average retail dollars sold per seller will vary.
Can we track our sales?
Brochure: You probably won’t know how many orders you get until you collect your order forms. But there are strategies that can give you a ballpark idea. Learn how to track your fundraising progress
Online: You'll be able to track online sales in real-time. By logging into your dashboard you'll see:
- Your latest orders

- Overall sales progress
How do we receive our money?
Brochure Sales: Money and order forms are turned in at the end of the sale. Send us a check for 50% of the total money collected along with your order forms for processing.
Online Sales: Your profit check usually arrives 2-3 weeks after the end of the season.
What is our profit?
Groups make 50% off of all Spring Flowers items.

What about sales tax?
The only time an organization will not pay sales tax is if they are tax exempt and the order ships to the organization’s address where the tax exempt number is connected to.
Online customers pay sales tax if applicable, and shipping. We do not charge a processing fee.
How soon do we receive our order?

Spring paper order forms must be received by April 1st. Spring orders begin shipping April 1st, and we start with the warmest states first.
- Beginning of April: Zones 8-10
- Early-Mid April: Zones 6-7
