Flower Fundraiser Ideas
Looking for Fundraising Ideas?
In this guide, we’ll explore why selling flowers can be an excellent choice for school fundraisers. There are many benefits of selling flowers, including their high demand, ease of sale, low overhead costs, year-round sales potential, and opportunities for student involvement.

So whether you’re a teacher, parent, student, PTO/PTA, or fundraiser, read on to learn why flower sales might be the perfect choice for your school’s next fundraiser.
Flowers are a popular gift item, and people often buy them for special occasions such as Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or to simply decorate their home during Spring & Fall. This high demand can make them a lucrative fundraising option.
Easy to Sell
Selling flowers is relatively easy compared to other fundraising ideas. People generally don’t need much convincing to buy flowers, and they are an item that can be easily marketed and sold.
Low Overhead Costs
Depending on the type of flower, the overhead costs for selling flowers can be relatively low. This means that more of the proceeds can go directly towards your school’s fundraising goals.
Variety of Options
There are many different types of flowers that can be sold, including vegetables, potted plants, or hanging baskets. This variety can appeal to a wide range of customers with different tastes and preferences.
While certain times of year may be busier than others for selling flowers, they are generally in demand year-round. This means that a school can potentially run flower sales multiple times throughout the year. At JOCO Growers, we hold fundraisers in the spring and in the fall.
Opportunities for Student Involvement
Depending on how the flower sales are structured, students may have the opportunity to get involved in the fundraising process. This can provide valuable learning experiences and help students develop important skills.

Other Organizations That Can Benefit From Flower Fundraisers
If you’re a non-profit organization that focuses on environmental causes, animal welfare, or community service, then a flower fundraiser could be a unique and effective way to raise awareness and funds for your cause.
Churches, synagogues, and other religious organizations can also benefit from flower fundraisers. Whether you need to raise funds for a mission trip, youth programs, or building maintenance, a flower fundraiser can help.
Youth sports teams
Youth sports teams, such as Little League teams or soccer clubs, can use flower fundraisers to cover the costs of equipment, uniforms, and travel expenses. Plus, it’s a fun and easy way for kids to get involved in fundraising and learn about teamwork and responsibility.
Community groups, such as garden clubs, can use flower fundraisers to support their activities and projects. Plus, it’s a great way to beautify public spaces and bring people together to create a sense of community pride.
Choirs and marching bands
School choirs, bands, and marching bands have a lot of success selling flowers to offset the cost of participating in these extracurricular programs. Selling flowers is also a great way to raise money for choir and band class trips.
