Simply Cheese offers a way for your organization to make money while giving your supporters the chance to taste our delicious cheeses. Our program is simple and profitable. Read the details below, and then contact us to get started!
Fantastic Products -- Simply Cheese offers wholesome Amish cheese made from hormone-free milk at an Amish dairy in Northern Ohio. Your supporters can choose from traditional, organic, grass-fed, or goat-milk cheeses.
Happy Customers -- Your supporters will appreciate the opportunity to purchase Simply Cheese products from your fundraiser. They will be buying delicious, healthy cheese at a price they can afford.
Easy & Profitable -- Your group will make $2 per pound profit. You will enjoy how our wonderful cheeses are so easy to sell, and how easy it is to work with Simply Cheese.
Some groups choose to sell at special events such as shows, bazaars, or community celebrations. They purchase items that they want to sell and then set up a table to sell at these high-traffic events. Others sell only to their members and their families; others set up outside a local business (such as WalMart) and sell to customers. It is up to you.
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:
Q. Who is allowed to participate in the Simply Cheese fundraiser program?
A. Any non-profit, civic, or charitable organization, as well as school clubs and sport teams.
Q: For how long should we sell?
A: 10 to 14 days is recommended, but not longer than 4 weeks.
Q: How should we advertise?
A: We suggest putting an ad in the local paper, posting flyers around town, putting announcements on your organization's website or Facebook page, emailing your supporters, getting permission from local businesses to solicit customers as they come in or leave, etc.
Q: How do I store and distribute the products?
A: If possible, your group should make arrangements to deliver the products the same day you receive delivery. The cheese is delivered fresh and should be kept refrigerated at all times. If it cannot be delivered to your customer the day it is received, it must be refrigerated. It can be refrigerated up to 2 weeks.
Q: How do we receive our money?
A: It is up to you to collect payment from your customers when you deliver their cheese. They will make payment directly to your organization. When your cheese order arrives from Simply Cheese, you will also receive an invoice for the total due. You will have two weeks from the date of delivery to distribute the cheese, collect payment, and pay your invoice.
Q: What is the minimum order?
A: The minimum order is only $125 (about 20-25 pounds of cheese).
Q: How much is shipping?
A: Shipping is free!
