In today's economy it can be difficult for non-profit groups and schools to meet their financial challenges. So at Behnke's, we have designed a few programs as alternatives to the traditional fundraising route.
Behnke FUNdraising Days
where your group/school can invite people to shop at one of our retail stores and can earn a portion of the sales
Take orders for Behnke Gift Cards
and earn a portion of the sales. These cards are redeemable at either retail location and make great gifts for anyone who loves plants and flowers.
BEHNKE'S GIVES BACK...For over 80 years Behnke's goal has been to offer quality plants, products and service to our customers, creating a solid and long standing reputation. We have supported many community activities in the past and would like to help your non-profit group raise the funds it needs to carry on and thrive.
Promote a Fundraiser Day at Behnke's
The Behnke's Fundraiser Day promotion is an exciting, fun and easy way to raise money for your organization. You may schedule your Behnke’s Fundraiser Day for any day of the week - Monday thru Sunday.
Behnke Nurseries will help your organization raise funds by donating back to you 10% of the sales* generated by members of your group. We will create a master flyer with a unique bar code for you to make copies of to distribute to your group. Everyone likes to buy plants!
A Behnke's Fundraiser Day is fun and easy. Just distribute your flyers to your supporters, encourage them to shop on your Special Behnke Day, and remind them that they must submit the flyer at the time of
payment. Then sit back while we work hard to help you raise money. THE FLYERS MAY NOT BE DISTRIBUTED AT THE BEHNKE STORE.
Approximately ten days after your Behnke Fundraiser event, Behnke Nurseries will issue your group a check for its share and mail it to you. What a great way to raise funds for school clubs, church youth groups,
youth sports teams, or other cause related fundraisers.
A Behnke's Fundraiser Day is quick and easy way to raise funds.
- Call or email to schedule your Fundraiser Day.
- Receive your unique flyer (typically a PDF by email).
- Pass out the flyer to members and friends. (BUT NOT AT THE STORE)
- PROMOTE, PROMOTE, PROMOTE.
- Come SHOP!
- Receive your check!
Profit from Behnke Gift Cards
This is the gift that fits everyone! Who doesn't like to get potted flowers to set in the house or new plants for the garden outside, not to mention beautiful hanging baskets for the patio. Gift cards are practical and
never go out of style and what an easy fundraiser...they practically sell themselves! And best of all your group will receive 15% of the total sale.
Behnke gift cards are redeemable at either easy to reach location (Beltsville or Potomac) for a wide range of gardening products that appeal to everyone.**
Getting started is EASY!
You can initiate this fundraiser anytime of the year. First, contact Behnke's using the information at the bottom of this page. We will set up an account for your group and send you the information requested. Then, your group can begin!
- You will take orders for Behnke Gift Cards available in $10 and $25 denominations and collect the money for the face value of the cards.
