If you work for a nonprofit, or a company fundraising on behalf of one, here's how you create a custom webshop and raise money throughout the year, anytime someone needs to send flowers.
In this step, you fill out basic information about you and your organization.
It’s time to set up shop!
Select a beneficiary from our list or request that we add a new one (likely your organization if you work for a nonprofit). Add your logo and any relevant information, customize your webshop and flyers, and upload your email list.
Make your fundraiser viral by sharing your webshop’s link on social media, your website, and more. When people in your community or supporters everywhere need flowers, they’ll buy from your store to support your cause.
Once your webshop is created and word spreads about your fundraiser, all you have to do is, well…nothing.
We handle all payments, cover credit card fees, and logistics.
You’ll get access to reports and tools so you’ll be able to track the performance of your fundraiser every step of the way.
We also do the heavy lifting when it comes to informing people about your fundraiser. If you upload an email list, our system will send out gentle reminders to purchase flowers near major holidays and at other times throughout the year – you really do get to sit back and relax!
Brian’s scout troop loves to volunteer at their local animal shelter. So, they set up an Anytime fundraiser to support it.
Family and friends across the U.S. send flowers from the troop’s webshop whenever they need to spread some colorful cheer.
Their ongoing fundraiser helps support critical care at their shelter so the animals there can get healthy – and get adopted!
We’ve built a fun tool to estimate the potential profitability of your fundraiser. Simply enter two numbers, move a few sliders and voila!
A better question is, what’s not unique about fundraising with Crayola Flowers? Crayola Flowers is the first, and only, national flower fundraiser. We’re blazing new trails and we are keenly focused on raising funds and awareness for great causes.
We’ve put a lot of thought into building a platform that's simple and secure. We’ve also developed very useful Cool Tools to help organizations create and manage fundraisers to achieve maximum success.
We offer three different ways to fundraise. Please check out the Our Fundraisers tab on our home page to learn more.
We have different types of fundraisers. With certain exceptions, any U.S. nonprofit (i.e. association, school, religious institution, sports team) can create its own fundraiser. A corporation (for-profit) can set up an Anytime fundraiser and promote it to employees, if the proceeds are to benefit a nonprofit.
No way! Not only do you keep 100% of the donations made through your fundraisers, but we also absorb the credit card fees charged by the payment processor on every purchase.
Individual bouquets are delivered directly to the recipient at a residence or business address in the lower 48 states.
That’s an excellent question and here’s the deal:
Anyone can buy and send flowers 24/7 and we ship them anywhere in the lower 48 states. For example, Sylvia Smythe in Walla Walla can send birthday flowers to her niece, Hildy Hildebrand, in Kalamazoo and your organization will make money!
We will donate 10% of gross flower sales to your nonprofit. If you consider how many constituents you have and your phenomenal social media skills, that can translate into big money! Try out our Success Estimator Cool Tool to get a general idea of the potential.
