We have been working with garden clubs, school groups, churches, botanic gardens, foundations and private non-profit organizations on flower bulb fundraisers for years and years. We do not offer a 'canned' fundraising program or brochure, since most of our clients are experienced horticulturists who prefer to sell specially selected varieties of flower bulbs geared to their own particular audience. They have found that it's been most successful to sell unique varieties of the finest quality and top size bulbs that are not found in big chain stores, and not simply a generic red Tulip or a yellow Daffodil.
The key to a successful fundraiser is to keep it manageable, fun and profitable. That means enlisting the help of enough volunteer colleagues to help with promotion, selling, packing and distribution. Network through the whole community, develop partnerships with other community organizations, student groups and high traffic local businesses.
