How It Works
Register Your Non-Profit
Raising funds with Greenraising is simple and quick! Schools and non-profit agencies just fill out the online application form. If we aren't familiar with your organization, we may ask for proof of your non-profit status. Once you're approved, which will take from 1-7 days, the name of your organization will appear on Greenraising's list of approved partners.
Website drives are the quickest way to start earning money for your organization. Our website contains a wide variety of information and products that are solutions to many of today's environmental problems. Once the organization is registered, you can start earning immediately. Greenraising will send you 25% of all sales from people who name your group as the beneficiary. Contact us for ideas on how to encourage your constituents to visit the website and buy to benefit your organization. Typically, website sales are paid monthly, subject to certain minimums.
In addition, you can choose a 2-3 week "Website Drive" period, during which you'll earn 45% on all sales to your supporters from the website. We even give you the chance to offer your supporters free shipping to your affiliate address, making this a wonderful "catalog drive" without the waste of catalogs!
8-page Catalog Drives
Catalog drives are the traditional fundraisers. Greenraising will provide you with 8-page catalogs and order forms, and together we will set a time period for your drive. During that time period, you will keep 30-40% of all money raised by your organization in person or on the website. Your percentage is based on sales per catalog used. Supporters buying online can also order with free shipping and we'll send their orders to you for distribution. Once we receive all of your orders, Greenraising will send you the products and you can distribute them among your local constituents.
1-page Catalog Drives
Try our web drive/catalog drive hybrid! We provide a one-page catalog with a selection of our best-selling products. You distribute these and encourage people to take orders on the attached order form OR go online for greater selection. It's greener than the 8-page catalog, but still gives your less tech-friendly supporters a way to participate. You keep 40% of all sales!
Planning For Your Fundraiser
Year-round, Greenraising is happy to provide event ideas, educational opportunities, and lesson plans to all of our partners. Many schools will find it effective to combine the lesson plans with their catalog drives to inform families about the importance of making good environmental choices. Others may find inspiration in a kick-off event or Earth Day celebration. However you decide to approach it, Greenraising is here to help.
