Poinsettia Fundraising Program


Why Poinsettias?

Poinsettias are POPULAR.

Did you know that poinsettias are the most popular selling potted plant in North America? Not only do they add instant colour to your decor during the holiday season, poinsettias also make excellent gifts!

Poinsettias are PROFITABLE.

With wholesale pricing, organizations participating in poinsettia fundraising can earn up to 50% profit. In the past, many groups have made over $5,000 selling poinsettias.

Poinsettias are PROVEN.

For over a decade organizations have been raising money through our Poinsettia Fundraising Program.

How it Works

Option #1: Gift Cards

Rather than have us pre-select and deliver the poinsettias to you for distribution, this option provides all buyers with a poinsettia gift card redeemable at our two retail locations in Bradford and Barrie, where they can choose the poinsettia of their choice. This option was designed to offer you added convenience and avoid organizational confusion. This option ensures that the buyer receives exactly what they are looking for. We offer you (the coordinator), a lower price per pot resulting in an increase of profits on your bottom line. Furthermore, you will receive 5% back of any additional purchases ($5 minimum) made by buyers when they pick up their poinsettia. Gift cards may be picked up at our Barrie or Bradford stores.

Option #2: Plant Delivery

You submit your order form and we pre- select your poinsettias, deliver them to you on a prescheduled delivery date, and you coordinate the distribution of them to your buyers.

Delivery Day

Please count all cases with our driver at the time of delivery. Please count all plants before handing them out to your buyers. We strive for excellent quality and service. All claims must be made by phone or email to office within 24 hours and we will do our best to rectify the situation.

Poinsettias are sensitive to cold and will freeze quickly. Please do not put plants in an unheated vehicle or trunk. We ask that plants be delivered to your customers right away as they are required to have the protective sleeve removed within 24 hours.
