Green School Fundraising for Fall 2009

How do you produce healthy fundraising results? With that, we mean, how do you make money to support the many important programs in your schools?

Simple solution: Variety.

We offer three types of eco-friendly fundraisers for your school to utilize for the 2009/10 school year.

1. Our traditional Green Fundraising Program. We recommend you pick a period of 2 weeks to allow your students to take the paper catalog along to friends and family. This program includes many of the same products you find on our eco-friendly web-catalog. We constantly turn over the products we offer to keep the program fresh to your supporters.

2. Water Bottle Fundraising Program. For the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 school year, we are waiving all design work for the BPA-Free, Reusable Water Bottle design work to customize the waters bottles with your school's logo and name. This is a popular program since individuals are moving away from environmentally-harmful disposable water bottles and towards reusable water bottles. Did you know 8 out of 10 disposable water bottles end up in landfills? The reusable bottles are insulated, and come in a variety of colors.

3. Seed and Bulb Fundraising Program. This is an extremely popular program! Did you know gardening is one of the top growing industries in this struggling economy due to the rising cost of produce and the simple joy it brings people? We provide your students with Seed and Bulb catalogs specific to the time of year you are running this eco-friendly fundraiser.

Many schools run more than one or all of the above green fundraisers. It gives a nice variety and peaks the interest of every supporter in one way or another. We offer at least 40% of each sale for the green fundraising programs we offer.

You have some very inspiring ideas. I especially like the reusable water bottles. I wish I had a green thumb because there is nothing better than fresh garden veggies in the summer. Seriously, I could kill a cactus!
