Fundraising with Florida Fruit Association is as easy as 1-2-3! Follow the easy steps below and your fresh fruit fundraiser is bound to be a success!!
Meet with your team in December or early January to schedule your fresh fruit sale for delivery in March. Call Florida Fruit Association at 1-800-613-7848 by mid to late December and we will provide you with all the necessary materials required for conducting a successful fruit fundraiser. Once your sales materials arrive, decide on what your selling prices will be or feel free to use our suggested prices. Each flat of fruit should yield you a profit of $8.00 to $10.00. Once you have set your selling price, simply pass out the order forms to your team members and start your sale.
The key to a successful strawberry fundraiser is advertising! Contact your local radio and television stations. Make use of your daily newspaper along with any alternative weekly papers your community may have. Utilize online promotions such as Facebook and Twitter and post your campaign on your school or organization website. And don't forget our FREE POSTERS! Display them in area businesses and bulletin boards. An outdoor marquee is another great way to advertise your sale if one is available to you.
At the end of your sale, tally your total orders and give us a call. We will also discuss delivery dates with you. After your order is processed, we will send you a confirmation of your order along with an invoice. Once a firm delivery date is set, you will be contacted so you can arrange to have your volunteers ready to unload your fruit from a refrigerated truck upon arrival at your designated drop site.
Salute your team members and celebrate the money you have successfully raised for your organization!
