School’s back and so are school fundraisers! If your kids’ classroom, sports team or extracurricular club is looking for ways to raise money, we’ve got an idea: Meat Fundraisers!
VG Meats has a community fundraising program that allows public schools, sports teams, extracurricular clubs, choirs, nonprofits and other community organizations to raise money by selling something everyone needs and enjoys: delicious local meat. We’ve made sure to include high donation margins in order to maximize the amount of money that goes to the organization, and we’ve made it easy to execute with simple online forms. And, we’ve recently added even more delicious products to choose from! Here’s how it works.
A brief history of meat fundraisers
Our first meat fundraiser took place in 2017 and since then, we’ve helped raise over $150,000 for local schools, clubs and sports teams. It’s been pretty incredible! It all comes down to a few things that truly matter to us: community, local food and family. VG Meats is a fourth generation family business with strong ties to our community. We’re more than happy to help organizations across southern Ontario raise money for education, team sports and other worthwhile initiatives. It makes us happy to see these organizations thrive with the support of their community and our team!
We’re proud to sell high quality beef, chicken and pork products raised in Norfolk County, and we’re able to offer great margins that add up to big donation numbers. Plus, we know exactly why these fundraisers matter. Years ago, the four VG brothers were kids who played sports, attended public school and took part in a variety of extracurriculars. Today, we’re the parents of (many!) school-aged children. We see how much it helps families to access and enjoy these programs, and we’re more than happy to be a part of it.
How it works
To start your fundraiser, simply contact our team. We’ll get you set up and provide simple instructions for communication and online ordering. Your supporters will be able to choose from a variety of VG Meats products and the donation amount is clearly noted above every item price, so they’ll know exactly how much their order is contributing to your school, club or team.
Placing an order in support of a VG Meats fundraiser is easy and convenient. Supporters will visit our online order page to choose their favourite products and select the organization they are supporting (for example, “Local-town Elementary School”). They’ll be asked to identify the individual fundraiser (i.e. the student/team member) and enter their own customer information. An email with additional instructions and delivery/pick up information will follow. All online payments are safe and secure. And then, everyone gets to enjoy that delicious local meat! We’d call that a win all around.
