Spring Fundraiser

There is no time more anticipated than spring time. As the snow melts and temperatures begin rising, everyone's thoughts go to green grass and flowers sprouting. Take advantage of the excitement by using Glenlea Greenhouses for you next school or group fundraiser. You can raise funds for your group by selling annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, herbs, vegetables and more. Plants are a healthy alternative to candy sales.

Glenlea Greenhouses is a family owned business established in 1992. We have professional growers with over 30 years of experience and have been doing fundraisers since 1996. You will find the pricing is equal to or even below the average garden centre.

At no cost to your group, color catalogues are provided to your group with an attached order form. On line ordering and payment is also available to your customers, making it easy to capture more sales through the social media and email. We provide an Excel template for entering your orders to make the submission of the group’s total order efficient and accurate.

With profit margins of up to 30% on the plant orders before taxes, and 20% on the gift cards, perhaps it is time to consider something new for your group's fundraising needs.
