Coffee Fundraisers

As you know, 80 % of all Canadian households purchase coffee already. We offer a replacement sale that benefits your cause directly. Why is this program different from others?

  • High profit – $6 per bag goes directly to you!
  • Risk Free – No up-front purchases. You only place the order when all funds are collected.
  • Easy easy setup – We supply you with pre-printed order forms.  Optional pre-sorting of your order minimizes your distribution effort.
  • Ongoing – Coffee is a household staple.  Organizations often run the fundraiser several times per season.

Sometimes it is possible to brand the fundraiser with a custom label unique to your cause or event. The label is often in French or bilingual. There is no charge for artwork and design services. This is a free service. Once your decision has been made, we are happy to donate 2 bags of coffee:

  • One is ground for for a 100 cup Urn,
  • The other is a 3/4 Lb bag ground for fine filter, to be shown to volunteers and finally auctioned off at a kick-off event, silent auction or raffle.

FAQ

Q: How many varieties can we order?

A: Typically four.  To facilitate what is often a complicated process, we offer four streamlined, pre-selected coffee groupings.  Contact us for details.

Q: What about ground coffee?

A: Coffee is available ground or whole bean. The grind is set by default to fine for paper filter unless the coffee ordered is an espresso blend and requires a finer grind, in which case it is set to give a proper espresso extraction. If the entire order is to be ground in one particular way (say percolator, for camping) we will gladly accommodate that request.

Q: Can we have a custom label?

A: We are happy to brand your product with a label unique to your event or cause.

Q: From the time we place our order, how long does it take to receive the coffee?

A: Orders require up to 10 business days for production and delivery.

Testimonials

Here is what some of our customers are saying about the Francesco’s Coffee Company Coffee Fundraiser Program and how it has worked for them.

“When our school’s music room suffered a huge flood, our music department was in desperate need of money fast. The grade 8 band was heading out of town to perform and the insurance wasn’t going to cover many of the lost items. Immediately we planned a Francesco’s coffee fundraiser. Order forms were handed out to 250 of our students for home sales and 500 forms went home in a school newsletter. In just 3 weeks from planning we had delivered 4 varieties of fair-trade coffee-complete with a special Francesco designed fundraiser brand sticker. We raised approximately $5000 and the music played on. “

Anne Donald, Broadview School, Ottawa

“The popularity of Francesco’s  fair trade coffee was pivotal in our efforts to raise the funds needed to take the forty members of the Choir to New York City where it had been invited to sing at three locations over a weekend in June 2007. Pietro Comino’s personal interest in our venture and his ongoing support for the campaign were gratifying for all involved. “
