How Does a Spring Fundraiser Work?

Once you’ve decided 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. Prior to your kickoff date you’ll receive a brochure, order form, prize flyer, and a money collection envelope for each of your students. Smaller groups may also receive their personalized parent information letter by email so they can make copies, while larger groups will receive a copy inside their fundraising packets.

Before handing out your supplies to your students to take home, be sure to have a meeting and explain the steps, what your sales goals are, and how they can win prizes. We’ll provide any information you need to communicate to your students before your sale starts. You’ll want them to approach family, friends and neighbors and ask them to buy 1 or more items from their catalog. Any checks need to be made payable to your organization. To give people time to collect orders and money, spring fundraisers normally last for 2 weeks.

After your sale is over and you’ve counted up all the money, deposit your money in your account and send us your order forms so we can process and pack your students boxes. Along with your invoice, you’ll receive your sales reports. We’ll then work with you to schedule your delivery date for your merchandise.

Opportunities for Spring

Spring is all about being outside - and so are spring catalog fundraisers! Whether you’re anticipating Earth Day or gearing up for Easter, our spring fundraisers have you covered

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

Unique Spring Fundraising Ideas

Welcome Spring

Our largest spring catalog, ‘Welcome Spring’ is loaded with lots of variety, including kitchen and home accessory products, jewelry, candles and plenty of snacks and candy. Your customers will also experience great value with about a third of the catalog priced competitively at $15 or less.

Great Gifts

'Great Gifts' catalog offers items strictly priced at only $8, including an abundance of choices in flower seeds. Our favorite are the moss-verbena seeds. If you’ve ever walked into a candle store, odds are you’ve smelled something verbena scented, and that’s because the aroma is magical! When bloomed they vary in shades of mauve, purple, white, pink, apricot and red, and spread quickly and easily with little effort.

Consider passing out one complimentary packet of flower seeds with the purchase of something else from the brochure; it adds incentive to buy and encourages customers to try out one of your products. Flowers aren’t the only thing you can grow from our catalogs, though. Customers have the option to purchase strawberry seeds! Get immersive with your spring sale, and bring fresh strawberries along while you make your pitch to customers. Imagine how much more enticing it will be if customers can see or bite into a real strawberry while you show them the brochure.

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

Spring Holiday Favorites

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 plan so that your sale wraps up at least a month in advance to give customers time to get their orders.

Alternatively, maybe your community is doing a spring carnival, and volunteers want to purchase prizes for patrons. They’ll feel good about supporting their local school when they furnish their supplies and giveaways from your event. The “Gourmet Spring” brochure checks all the boxes with chocolates, candies, and even honey-roasted peanuts. Monogrammed bags and personalized totes can be found as well 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 utilize birthday parties in the park to talk to other kids and parents about gifts for the various spring holidays or baked goods to enjoy in the warmer weather. There are dozens of options for amazing outdoor barbecues and picnics to help welcome in warm weather and fresh spring vegetables.
