Fundraising

We launched our Fundraiser Program 5 years ago, with the mission to make a difference in our community by helping local organizations in need raise funds for their activities. We saw this program grow steadily, and over the last two years it has exploded. This program has never generated profits for our company, but we have valued the support it has provided local groups.

Since the beginning of the Fundraising Program we experienced steady increases in our business costs, but decided at the time not to increase the program costs. Unfortunately, we are now at a point where we need to adjust our pricing.

Effective immediately our fundraiser pack sell price for organizations will be $15.00. This is a substantial increase, but one that is necessary if the program is to continue. We suggest a final fundraising price of $25.00, which allows our partners to raise $10.00 per pack.

We are delighted to be able to continue contributing to the community and wish our participating organizations all the best in their fundraising adventures!
