From Mother’s Day to Valentine's Day to Christmas, your organization can benefit from flower-giving moments to support an important initiative.
Occasion-al fundraisers are short-term and can be created at various times throughout the year. Flowers are shipped in bulk to one location for pickup, so this option is ideal for local fundraisers.
In this step, you fill out basic information about you and your organization.
Once you verify your email, you’ll receive a welcome message indicating that you’re ready to create your first fundraiser.
We provide tools to customize your fundraiser and make it a smashing success. First, choose the holiday/occasion, flower types and set prices that participants pay for their flowers.
Then, upload your contact email list to our secure platform so our system can automatically send out a link to your webshop and timely reminders on your behalf to encourage participation. Along the way, you’ll be able to track performance through your real-time dashboard.
When your fundraiser ends, your order is transmitted to our growers who will harvest, pack and send the freshest blooms possible.
On the delivery date, you’ll only need to hand out the flowers to supporters and pat yourself on the back for a job well done!
Carol is involved in the PTA at her son’s school. Always looking for new and innovative products for fundraisers, she learned about Crayola Flowers through a colleague in her school district. Since the school needed a new playground, Carol presented the idea to her fellow PTA members and they agreed it was a great idea.
She easily set up a 4-week Occasion-al fundraiser to coincide with Mother’s Day, uploaded the parent email list, and that was it.
The fundraiser was a success, and students can’t wait for their new playground next year.

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.
All flowers are shipped to the location you choose (typically a school or company) for distribution or sale, and can be delivered to the lower 48 states (sorry AK and HI).
That’s an excellent question and here’s the deal:
Anyone can participate, however, because flowers are shipped to one location for distribution, the purchaser will need to designate a pickup person other than themselves if they live outside of your area.
Your profit potential depends on many variables. While creating your Occasion-al fundraiser you’ll get to see how much you can earn in our Sales & Profit Estimator.
