Overall, everything went well. There was one mistake on an order, we were short two items when the original list was sent to us but we missed it when we checked the final document. The family was okay with it, so we just ended up returning the money. Other than that, shipment was great, having everything pre-packaged was great help, so thank you for that! We will definitely add you to our fundraising list for the upcoming school year.

How Does a Spring Fundraiser Work?high school tennis

There are plenty of reasons schools fundraise in the spring. Field trips, Teacher Appreciation Week, Mother's Day, and Easter, just to name a few.

Once you decide on a spring fundraising catalog, be sure to choose a prize program to go with it. Our incentive plans are free and will help motivate your group to sell.

Each student receives a brochure, order form, prize flyer, and an envelope to put the money. We'll also provide a personalized parent letter with your group's information.

Be sure to have a kickoff meeting with your students. Explain the steps, what your sales goals are, and how they can win prizes.

You’ll want them to approach family, friends and neighbors and ask people to buy 1 or more items from their catalog. To give people time to collect orders and money, spring fundraisers last for 2 weeks.

Once you’re done, send us your order forms. We'll then process and pack your student's orders. Along with your invoice, you’ll receive your sales reports.

We’ll also work with you to schedule your delivery date.

  • Ask the principal to introduce you and the fundraiser to your students.
  • Tell your students the purpose and how many items you’d like them to sell.

More Spring Fundraiser Ideas

Spring is all about being outside - and so are spring catalogs!

The sun is out, the grass is getting greener, and it’s time to wake up and smell the flowers, or even plant them. Earth Day and Mother’s Day happen in the spring. So what better way to spend those days than planting and caring for beautiful flowers?

Spring is in the Air

One of our larger spring catalog, ‘Spring is in the Air’ has lots of variety. Included are kitchen and home accessories, jewelry, and candles. There's also lots of snacks and candy. Your customers will experience great value with about a third of the catalog priced at $15 or less.

$10 Gifts from the Heart

'Gifts from the Heart' catalog offers all items priced at only $10, including plenty of flower seeds. Our favorite is the moss-verbena. If you’ve ever walked into a candle store, odds are you’ve smelled something verbena scented. That’s because the aroma is magical! When bloomed they vary in shades of mauve, purple, white, pink, apricot and red. They also spread with little effort.

Simply Spring

With a price range of $7 to $29, 'Simply Spring' has lots to offer. You'll find a variety of items like kitchen items, flower bulbs, jewelry, and wax melts. Also included are delicious gourmet snacks, Jelly Belly®, Reese's® and Auntie Anne's®.

Flowers aren’t the only thing you can grow from our catalogs. Customers have the option to buy strawberry seeds! Get immersive with your spring sale. Bring fresh strawberries along while you make your pitch to customers. Imagine if customers can see or bite into a real strawberry while you show them the brochure.

Mom may be allergic to flowers but she still loves the smell. In that case, our candles are a great fit. They have the fresh smell of spring and the aroma lasts for hours!

Learn how to sell for a school fundraiser

Flower seeds aren’t the only hot item in spring. Our spring fundraising catalogs cover all your Easter basket needs. If you want to focus on Easter or Mother's Day, be sure to wrap up a least a month in advance. This gives customers time to get their orders.

Or, your school may be doing a late spring carnival, and need to buy food and prizes for patrons. People will feel good knowing they're helping to pay for your event. “Heartland Spring Collection” checks all the boxes. With snacks, candies, and even honey-roasted peanuts, there's something for everyone.

People can even buy monogrammed bags and personalized totes. This is great if you’re selling to someone who’s crafting an Easter basket from scratch!

Don’t forget to take advantage of the outdoors with these spring-themed brochures. Try fundraising during outdoor activities, or birthday parties in the park. Talk about gifts for the upcoming spring holidays, or baked goods to enjoy in the warmer weather. There are also dozens of options for amazing outdoor barbecues and picnics.

For questions about pricing, profit, or ordering, check out our instructional links. They'll guide you through each step. Our spring brochures are a fresh take on traditional school fundraising. With many of our schools raising five-figures, these are reliable and profitable choices.
