It's a healthy, natural moneymaker for groups like yours

Everyone loves the taste and health benefits of fresh Florida oranges and grapefruit. Why not take advantage of that and sponsor a Fresh Florida Citrus Sale? It's easy, quick and simple. All it takes is organization, volunteers and a free fundraising kit filled with instructions and materials. Your group can add thousands of dollars to its treasury by simply selling fresh Florida citrus.

Buy Wholesale, Sell Below Retail

When you choose to sell fresh Florida citrus, you not only have eager customers, you buy direct from the shipper at wholesale prices. The fruit is shipped fresh and packed into cartons for easy distribution. You can add $5 to $10 a carton to the wholesale price and still sell below supermarket prices. On a truckload of 900 to 1,100 cartons, your group can make as much as $5,000 to $10,000 in profit (each carton contains 64 to 100 oranges or 32 to 48 grapefruit).

During a one- or two-week drive, groups of 40 or more can easily sell a truckload. Smaller groups can often find shippers who will send half a truckload. Two or more small groups can join together and profit from the combined effort.

Direct from Florida, your fruit will be fresher than supermarket produce. Florida citrus is the juiciest and sweetest citrus grown anywhere. Fresh Florida citrus is so popular; you will have built-in repeat customers with each new sale. So, you may want to host more than one citrus sale a year.

How to Organize

Fresh Florida oranges and grapefruit are available from October through May. Host a pre-Thanksgiving sale and follow a month later with a pre-Christmas sale. Or simply plan a Florida citrus sale every two months between November and May. Whether you combine your sale with another fundraiser like a membership drive, sports event or other special occasion, you're sure to reap rewards selling fresh Florida citrus.

Fundraising Kit

To help you plan and profit from your Fresh Florida Citrus Fundraiser, a complete kit will be provided with step-by-step instructions, posters, tally sheets, shipper listing and a host of other helpful materials. Everything you need to conduct a successful, profitable fundraising drive is provided. Just e-mail us to receive your introductory Florida Citrus Fundraising Kit and start planning what you'll do with all the funds your Fresh Florida Citrus Fundraiser brings in.
