Seed Fundraisers and Donations
Bring your fundraiser to the garden!
School gardeners can spread the joy of seeds and earn money for their school gardening needs by organizing a Fedco Seeds Fundraiser! Not interested in managing a fundraiser? You can also request a Seed Donation. It’s up to you!
Online Fundraiser Option
Interested in raising funds for your school garden project by selling seeds? School gardeners can set up an online account with Fedco and sell seeds to fund their school gardening projects. Fundraiser customers choose from 25 popular, easy to grow varieties with seed packets that feature Fedco’s signature black and white line drawings with accompanying variety descriptions and planting instructions.
Fedco will provide a customized PDF promotional flyer with variety descriptions and an online shopping link for circulation for easy ordering and payment. Your school garden will earn 50% profit on sales. For more information about this option, please visit our Fundraiser Portal, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Note: This option does not include having students design seed packets.
Bulk Seed Fundraiser Option
Interested in a more educational option where students design the seed packets? Consider Fedco’s Bulk Seed Fundraiser Option.
How it works:
Order seeds through the Fedco Seeds website.
Purchase bulk packages (sizes C and up) of your chosen varieties.
Consider limiting the number of varieties to 12-18 the first year and using a garden theme to market the seeds.
Bulk Seed Fundraiser orders can take advantage of applicable volume discounts plus an additional 5% fundraiser discount. Please write FUNDRAISER in the order notes at checkout.
Although there is no order deadline or application required, Fedco recommends ordering before March 15th for best variety selection.
Have your students design their own packets and develop a marketing strategy to launch their own seed store by repacking the seeds to sell using practical math skills. Scales and scoops are not provided. Be sure to include blank self-seal seed packets in your order if you want to try this option.
For more information, please email email@example.com.
If you simply want to purchase a seed rack display for your fundraising event, please visit the Retail Seed Rack page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
