Questions about Heartland Spring Collection?
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Your group profits when your students take orders from their catalog.
Do students get a brochure to show?
Yes. Every student receives a catalog, order taker, and money collection envelope.
Is money collected up front?
Yes. Buyers can pay by check, cash, money order, or cashier’s check.
They also have the option to pay using their phone. (These orders still need to be written on the order form)
Are there any fees?
There are no setup fees or supply costs to start a Heartland Spring Collection brochure fundraiser.
Can students earn prizes?
Yes. Prize programs are optional but encouraged. Incentivizing your sellers can increase sales. It’s important to discuss your prize program at your kickoff meeting. Then, continue to promote your prizes throughout your sale. This will keep your group motivated.
There is no cost for our incentives.
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?
By default, we’ll set your end date 2 weeks after your kickoff date. You can always change your end date. Simply let us know before your sale ends.
Can we also raise money online?
Yes, an online store is included. Prior to your Heartland Spring Collection start date you’ll receive instructions so your students can register. Once registered they’ll be able to invite friends and family to shop at your store.
Selling online adds a 2nd way for your group to raise money.
Do students need to register?
Registration is the preferred way to fundraise online. It's also a great way to get your students engaged in your cause. As students register, they’ll be able to share their unique link using text, social media, and/ or email.
This takes supporters to your store where the student’s name appears at the top of the page. This helps make it recognizable to friends and family. For example, “Thank you for supporting John Doe with ABC High School Band!”
Registered sellers will also be eligible to earn credit towards prizes. We encourage groups to supplement our prize program with their own rewards. Here are some incentive ideas.
Do we get our own link?
There are 2 ways to advertise your store:
- Registration: By default, your group will receive a unique group ID number. Students will need it to register and share their store link using social media, text, and/or email.
- Direct Link: As an option, we can create a unique link that would bypass the registration process. Your group would be able to share your link with their friends and family.
Can we accept donations?
Yes, your store will be set up to accept donations. You make 70% of the donated amount.
You have the option to turn this feature off when logged into your portal.
Is there a minimum order?
There are no order requirements for a Heartland Spring Collection fundraiser.
How much money can we make?
You’ll need to know your group size as well your student goal. Here’s how you can estimate your profit:
- Student Count x Student Item Goal = Items Sold
- Items Sold x Average Retail Price = Gross Sales
- Gross Sales x Profit % = Group Profit
- Let’s say you have 60 students and you set your student item goal at 10. The items sold would be 60 Students x 10 Items / Student = 600.
- 2. Next, determine your gross sales. The average retail price is about $16 so your gross sales would be 600 Items x $16 = $9,600.
- Since your profit is 40%, your group profit would be $9,600 x 40% = $3,840.
Keep in mind, our example is only an estimated profit. In reality, students 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?
You may not know how many Heartland Spring Collection brochure orders you get until the end. Yet there are strategies that can give you a ballpark idea. Learn how to track your fundraising progress
But you'll be able to track online sales in real-time. By logging into your dashboard you'll see students who’ve sent emails to friends and family as well as up-to-date sales activity.
How do we receive our money?
Brochure Sales: Money and order forms are turned in at the end of the sale. The money gets deposited in the group’s account and the order forms are sent in for processing.
Once orders are processed, the group receives their sales reports and invoice. The group sends a check for the invoice amount and keeps the rest as profit.
Online Sales: A credit will appear on your brochure invoice for your online sales profit.
Donations: Any profits from donations are factored into your online sales credit.
What is our profit?
Groups make 40% off all Heartland Spring Collection brochure and online sales.
You receive 70% of online donations.
(Use the ‘Calculate Your Profit’ calculator at the top of the page to determine your profit)
How soon do we receive our order?
We deliver brochure orders to your group 3-4 weeks after receiving your order forms. Online orders generally ship to customers within 3 business days after purchase.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships out of our Indiana warehouse to all lower 48 states.
How is our order packed?
Orders deliver prepacked by seller.
Is there a shipping fee?
Brochure Sales: Shipping is free if certain order minimums are met:
- Groups under 100 students: Shipping is free for 150+ item orders. A $100 shipping and handling fee is charged for orders with fewer than 150 items.
- Groups with 100 or more students: Shipping is free for 250+ item orders. A $250 shipping and handling fee is charged for orders with fewer than 250 items.
Minimums include combined sales made from the brochure and online store.
Buyers also have the option to ship their order to the group. In this case there is no shipping fee.
Do you ship orders to sellers?
Yes this is an option. Instead of shipping Heartland Spring Collection brochure orders to your group, we’ll ship them to each student. Sellers would then need to distribute items to their customers.
Home delivery fundraisers go by the following profit margins:
|Retail Sales||Group Profit|
|$1,000 to $14,999||30%|
Orders under $1,000 in gross sales will be shipped to the group.
