Many schools, churches and other non-profit groups could benefit from using wholesale roses as a fundraiser. Because these roses can be so affordable, often costing as little as $75 for 100 roses, they can be a great money maker for your group.
One of the best ways to use wholesale roses as a fundraiser is to offer the flowers for sale and then deliver them or make them available for pick up on a certain day. For example, you could sell the roses and then make them available for pickup in your church fellowship hall on Mother’s Day or on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day.
If you are raising money for your school, you could sell the flowers and then deliver them with a note from the sender on a certain day. Everyone will want to get at least one rose delivered to the person that they like, and many will spend the extra money to make sure he or she gets roses in every single class!
Of course, you will have to use the wholesale roses to create attractive bouquets. This is not difficult or expensive. In fact, all you really need to buy, in addition to the wholesale roses, is some tissue paper and ribbon. Simply place the desired number of roses in the tissue paper, wrap around the stems and tie off with the ribbon.
You can allow people to purchase a single rose or a bunch. Of course, the amount you make will depend on how much you pay for the roses and how much you charge when you sell them. Shop around for the best deal on your roses, and then charge at least double that amount.
For example, if you pay $75 for 100 roses, then you would sell the roses for at least $1.50 each. Charge more if you can, but charging double what you paid is a minimum in order to make the fund raiser worth your time.
A good way to avoid waste is to have people order the roses and pay for them in advance. Then you can order the exact number of roses that you have sold. This is much better than trying to guess how many roses you need and either ending up with extra or not having enough and missing out some extra earnings for your group.
Using wholesale roses for a fundraiser is a fun, low-risk and easy way to earn some money for your group.
