You might consider selling coffee and tea to raise money. Coffee has been very successful for many types of groups. Your group would sell 10 oz bags of freshly ground coffee for $10 each. There are seven great flavors along with a gift coffee tin. Coffee sales work best in the fall and winter.
What You Should Know
Tea and Coffee fundraisers are very similar to candle fundraisers. You will make a specific profit percentage on every item you sell. For tea and coffee fundraisers you make 40% profit on every item or $4 each.
If you sell less than 150 bags, though, there is a $65 shipping fee which will affect your total profit. Orders of 150 or more bags of coffee or tea will qualify you for free shipping.

How much do you pay to start a Tea & Coffee Fundraiser?
How do you place your final Fundraising Coffee & Tea order?
At the end of your sale, you should collect all of the order forms and cash from each member of your group. You will need to tally all of the order forms together. Some people find it helpful to use a spreadsheet like Excel. You will also want to add up all the money collected too.
When you have your totals you can enter them online through your fundraising dashboard OR you can simply call us toll-free (866) 874-8383 with your order.
Once we receive your order we will enter it in our system and send you an invoice. After reviewing the invoice you can pay by calling with a Visa or Master Card or you can mail us a check or money order along with a copy of your invoice. We do accept purchase orders from public schools and will release orders upon receipt of a valid purchase order.
When will you get your fundraising coffee & tea?
We use a coffee roaster that is located in Texas. We drop ship your order directly from their facility to ensure the freshest possible products. The roaster attempts to ship your order within 7 business days once we release your order, which we do immediately upon receiving your bulk order and payment arrangements. For planning purposes, you should have your coffee and tea within 2 weeks.
