How does the fundraiser work?
The secret to a successful fundraising campaign is to sell quality products - available only through your group - at a reasonable price. This is how we help you do just that:
1. Your organization decides to have a fundraising campaign and the sponsor, or group leader, calls Blue & Gold Sausage Co. to get approval for your group.
2. After approval you will be provided with our production schedule to help set order and delivery dates accordingly.
3. When your group has decided the dates of your campaign then contact Blue & Gold Sausage Co. to let them know you are planning a sale at least 1-2 weeks in advance of your order date.
4. Each group member takes orders for a suggested period of 10 days to 2 weeks.
5. Upon ending your campaign, the group leader will collect all orders and turn totals in to Blue & Gold Sausage Co. In order to keep our delivery costs down, we will not deliver orders that are less than our minimum order. If your group is only selling sausage the minimum is 200 packages, selling only bacon the minimum is 120, and only selling chicken fritters, the minimum is 100 packages. For mixed orders, you only have to meet the minimum for one product. Since we don't sell partial cases, sausage needs to be ordered in 20 package increments, bacon in 6 package increments and chicken fritters in 2 package increments.
6. Product delivery is typically made during the week after you call in your order. Orders are delivered to a central location chosen by the organization. You will be asked if there are any days in the next week that you will not be able to take delivery, so please check your schedule before you call. We will work our hardest to try and get product to you on requested days and times, but can not guarantee.
7. Group members then promptly deliver to their individual customers to insure freshness. Since our products are perishable, preparations need to be made for storage and delivery to your customers. If they can't be delivered immediately, they need to be placed in freezer storage.
8. You may then be billed, or required to pay upon delivery, depending on the type of organization.
Upon successfully completing a fundraising sale, your organization will be eligible for our Profit-Sharing Program. If your bill is paid in full, and you have had a minimum order sale, you will receive a profit-sharing check at the end of that season.
If you have any further questions about our program, or if your group is ready to sell Blue & Gold Sausage, please feel free to give us a call.
