Running a Good Grains Fundraiser Event is easier than you'd think. As parents ourselves, we've run many fundraisers over the years, and we know just how time consuming and tough it can be to pull off a successful event. That's why we've worked hard to make Good Grains simpler, healthier, and more impactful for you and your organization.
If you're not ready to register for a FUNDRAISER EVENT just yet, you can still get started earning funds for your school, team or group via our ONLINE ORDERS today! If you are ready to hold your event, then read on...

ESTIMATE YOUR 1ST YEAR EARNINGS
Want to know more first?
Look at you smarty pants, doing your homework... Fundraiser Events run similar to your typical order form fundraiser, with a few key tweaks. We provide you with customized Order Forms, Parent Letters and helpful support throughout the process. Once you sign up, we establish a schedule and work with you to rollout your event. If there is a Fundraiser Rep in your area, you can also work with your local rep who can help you boost your results. Once your event is over, we ship directly to your supporters for free and we promote online reorders so that your group continues to earn on every reorder for life! Doesn't that sound nice?
FOLLOW THESE 7 STEPS FOR HUGE RESULTS
START BY SETTING YOUR GOAL
Visit our Goal Calculator to see just how realistic it is to reach your fundraising goal! We think you'll be pleasantly surprised. For instance, a school of 600 kids participating who each sell an average of 4 cases will earn $12,000 immediately, not to mention recurring funds from reorders. Or, a community group with just 50 volunteers who each sell an average of 20 cases will earn $5,000 immediately.
BUILD YOUR TIMELINE
Running your fundraiser takes about 5 weeks — 3 weeks for the event and 2 weeks to process and ship. But, you can do it tighter if you wish. We include a chart to set your dates in the Organizer's Guide.
SIGN UP ONLINE
Sign Up online or email in a paper sign-up form, which you can download from our Toolbox. Once received, we will confirm and mail your Order Taker flyers.
RUN YOUR FUNDRAISER
Review the Organizer’s Guide for the best way to run your Good Grains fundraiser. We've spelled out all the steps you need to take and included some helpful tips to ensure your event is a success.
MOTIVATE YOUR VOLUNTEERS
For certain groups, our basic prizing recommendations work great to incentivize participation to reach your goal. It's your option to include prizing and kickoff events or not. We're here to help make your fundraiser a success, so we welcome you to reach out with any questions about getting your volunteers involved and taking part in your fundraiser.
COLLECT & SUBMIT ORDERS
Collect all Order Taker flyers from your volunteers and enter your orders into your Master Order spreadsheet. Since we pre-pack each order for you, it’s important you collect the name, address, email and phone for each order. We’re unlike other fundraisers where you have to receive bulk shipments, sort them out and distribute orders. Instead, we directly ship the orders pre-labeled to each supporter.
JUICE YOUR LONG TERM RESULTS!
Other fundraisers end here. But, not Good Grains. Your supporters can continue to order Good Grains, and for each reorder, your organization will receive $1 per box just as they do with Online Orders. We’ll include an insert in each case promoting the reorder option. But, we recommend you remind your group to promote the reorders, as you’ll boost your fundraising total without any additional work.
Some ideas to promote reorders:
- Include a reorder reminder in your school or group newsletter (print and/or email).
- Post reminders on your Instagram wall, Facebook page, and other social accounts.
- Get your PTA/PTO and local education foundation involved - the more the merrier!
