Fedco Seeds Fundraiser 2019
Our fundraiser program for 2019 will be available in mid-December.
Email us below if you are interested and we can get back to you at that time. Thanks.
A FUNDRAISER WITH A WHOLESOME GREEN MESSAGE!Available to schools and classrooms, PTA groups, 4-H Clubs, Scouts and other non-profit groups.
Our fundraiser program requires an application to us. If your sale needs prior permission from your institution, please get cleared to participate by your administrator before you apply to us. Use the application form below and return it to us. After we receive it we will generate your custom order form as a pdf you can download from our website.
- We provide order forms with 25 popular easy-to-grow varieties with variety descriptions, simple cultural instructions and drawings.
- Although we have a suggested retail price, you may set the price you charge. Regardless of your retail price, the cost to you is the same and is determined by how many packets you sell. For the most part, groups that use our suggested retail price have had better sales than groups that chose their own prices.
- You have a choice of two order forms, the regular selection and the all-organic selection. You may choose either or both. The regular selection is less expensive and usually outsells the organic selection. Groups choosing one or the other usually but not always do better than groups offering both. You may not mix and match from the two lists, nor may you make your own custom selections or add-ons. The varieties on each form are the same for all participants.
- We ask that you make a commitment to sell at least 100 packets.
