A fundraiser that supports your own community while promoting a more equitable, sustainable and democratic food system. Below are 3 options to accommodate the needs of your group. We’ve discontinued our Catalog Fundraiser program.

Chocolate Bar fundraiser

Hands holding a number of fanned out chocolate bars

Raise 50% profits by selling a variety of 4 of our best-selling chocolate bars for $5 each. Purchase your desired number of cases of chocolate bars at wholesale case prices and sell them to friends, family and neighbors. Use a sell-sheet that describes the options and helps you promote your fundraiser’s specific details with a customizable announcement flyer.

Pre-order fundraiser

A selection of Equal Exchange products laid out on the table

You decide which products you will offer for sale from our wholesale case list. Choose each product’s mark-up that will help you achieve your fundraising goals. Take individual orders for products from your community while collecting money from those who ordered. Round up to the case minimum for each product ordered and place one master order with Equal Exchange. The entire order ships to a single location then the organizer coordinates product distribution.

FarmRaiser Option (for schools)

Kids organizing an Equal Exchange fundraiser

We are working with a third party called Farmraiser who has a platform that will help with order taking and payment collection- especially helpful during this time of social distancing. FarmRaiser is an online ordering tool to help fundraising participants to choose from a selection of 4 different chocolate bars and 2 coffee options. Orders and payments are collected and tallied via the platform, rounding up to the full case pack. A master order placed and sent to 1 address for the fundraising organizer to parcel out and distribute locally. Learn more about the Farmraiser program and sign up here.
