What is a Fundraiser
Fundraisers are for groups, families, and individuals that need to raise funds. That is where Wreaths of Maine helps. Thousands of homeschooling families have been earning money selling Christmas wreaths and those funds have gone to pay for music camps, science fair traveling expenses, trips to museums and one student saved up to buy a horse. Many other groups have been successful with Wreaths of Maine by selling wreaths to support youth church groups, private schools and groups in public schools such as bands and football teams.
Wreaths of Maine is dedicated to successful fundraisers since that is how 95% are our wreaths are sold. All the information needed to be successful in selling wreaths is provided. Since we are a mail order company all the wreaths are shipped directly to the consumer. This makes it an easy fundraiser because all that is needed is selling- no processing the payments, decorating the wreaths, or even sorting them from a large shipment, and best of all no delivery. That's simple and that's why it works
How Does a Fundraiser Work
First, you need a sales packet containing useful information, as well as tools to help sell Wreaths of Maine. Using the color brochures to show the wreaths; you will earn $6.00 for each wreath sold (except the $35.00 Homestead wreath: you will earn $4.00). October is a great time to sell to businesses. Some students have had great success selling to stock-brokers, insurance agencies and real estate firms. All of November, and especially Thanksgiving weekend, is an excellent time to sell wreaths in your neighborhood or to visiting relatives. A demonstration wreath is available for $30.00. Because of the Balsam fir and weather conditions, demo wreaths are shipped the 1st week in November. Once you show a sample of the fresh Maine balsam wreath with it's aromatic scent, people are anxious to order one for themselves.
