Two Programs to Choose From

Sherwood Forest Farms keeps holiday fundraising simple and straightforward for you and your nonprofit organization. Our framework provides an easy way to run your wreath fundraiser, and you can enhance as needed to fit your group.
There are two options for utilizing our holiday fundraiser: Complete Program or Direct Delivery Program Only.
  • Complete Program: With the Complete Program, your group sells the case products and the direct delivery products.  There is a 10 case minimum and the cases go to your group to distribute to your customers.  Any amount of direct delivery items can be sold.  Cases are always sold in full case amounts, products cannot be mixed within the case, any orders for less than 10 cases incur a $40 charge and cases are still sold in full case amounts.
  • Direct Delivery Program Only: With the Direct Delivery Program Only, there is a 10 item minimum.  All the items are sold one at a time, packaged and shipped individually directly to the recipient.  Your group does not handle the evergreens and Christmas wreaths.

Customer Service Tools

We strive to provide all the resources needed for your nonprofit organization to run a successful Christmas wreath fundraiser. Our tools help you track profits, create your own customized flyers, and give you marketing ideas, checklists and organizing tools. Helping you run a fundraiser easily and efficiently is one of our goals.

Success Stories

School groups, scout groups, church groups and other nonprofit organizations use Sherwood Forest Farms year after year because their wreath fundraisers are successful and their customers enjoy the Christmas evergreens so much they ask for it every fall.  They have return customers who can’t wait for the evergreens sale every fall.
