Need a Fresh Fundraising Idea?

Fundraisers Could Be Better

Overdone, unhealthy, and boring; that’s how I describe 80% of the fundraisers that come to my door. Now that my children are a little older, it’s my turn to return the favor to my neighbors. My kids are in a large hockey organization. Part of the deal is you must participate in a fundraiser during the season to raise money for ice time. I don’t mind participating in a fundraiser, especially if it helps kids, but we had to sell FROZEN PIZZA. I called up the association and asked them “Why the heck are we making athletes sell frozen food!? We play sports and put up with the crazy schedule partially because we want the kids to be healthy.” Now our freezers are full of frozen food. It’s just dumb. Honestly, I don’t know how all of you readers in the south do this. The only way the frozen food thing works in Minnesota is because its cold as heck here and we can just throw the frozen food in garages and on decks.

Also, there are a lot of families around us with kids. We end up buying coupon books and cards, wrapping paper, wreaths, etc. etc… Most of it is ok, but it’s the same old thing year after year and it’s mostly items I wouldn’t or don’t use.

Worst of all, many of these fundraisers pass on low percentages of the gross revenue to the organization.

Spiceé Gourmet Fundraising is a Better Option

Spiceé Gourmet has a line of gourmet spices. They are great for fundraisers for several reasons:

  • Non-perishable
  • Used in daily cooking
  • Easily transported
  • Have great price points that help raise a lot of money
  • Scaleable
  • Promote home cooking, which is a better lifestyle than eating frozen food or going out to dinner
  • Make great gifts

Here’s How the Program Works

You have control over your own fundraiser. We provide the product at a low wholesale cost. You choose the packaging for delivery to you, the shipping, and then choose if you will sell online through a landing page, have members go door to door selling to neighbors, or both. Set the selling price, and you can define what you make per bottle sold.

Download the Spiceé_Gourmet Sell Sheet sheet here. If you choose to sell door to door, we will provide these to you with order forms. This is the best way for organizations who need to track members’ sales.

Most organizations raise between $4.50 and $5.00 per bottle. At those rates, you can see the amount of money raised in the chart below.

Oh yeah, did I mention we can produce a bottle per second at our craft facility? That means we are very scaleable.

Examples of Fundraisers

Sports Club Wants To Raise $2,500 with 50 members:

To raise $2,500 you could sell 500 bottles. Simply select the fundraiser options that generate $5.00 profits per bottle and tell each member they are in charge of selling 10 bottles each.

You Are an Association With A $200 League Fee and Want To Provide More Affordable Options:

Simply offer this program as an optional fundraisers. Members could raise as much or as little as they wanted and what they raise could be applied toward their league fees. If a member wanted to play for free and you chose the $5.00 profit options, they would only have to sell 40 bottles.

You have a Gala and Want a Nice Thank You Gift:

We are happy to work with you to select gift wrapping or packaging. Simply give us an order with plenty of notice, and we can have gift packs ready to go. It is a great opportunity for another sponsor to give.
