**OUR 2021 FUNDRAISING SEASON HAS NOW ENDED
Thank you to all the groups that participated, and made it such a great success!

WHY YOU'LL BE SUCCESSFUL
We define a successful fundraiser
as making MORE MONEY with LESS EFFORT.
Here are FIVE GREAT REASONS that selling Sun-Oka apples will make your fundraiser a smashing success:
1. IT'S ALWAYS POPULAR
The vast majority of people in your community eat apples. In fact, the average Canadian household consumes over 120lbs of apples each year.
That's about one-fifth of all fresh fruit consumed in the country. Yes, Canadians LOVE apples.
For most of your family, friends, neighbours
and co-workers, apples are already a part of their existing grocery budget.
When you partner with Sun-Oka Fruit Farms you will be providing them with HIGHER QUALITY fruit at a LOWER PRICE than they are used to paying at the grocery store.
By supporting your fundraiser they can actually save money on their grocery bill.
Who says "No" to a higher quality product at a lower price? Nobody I know.
2. IT'S HIGHLY PROFITABLE
When you're fundraising, every dollar makes a difference.
Apples have one of the highest mark-ups of any product in the grocery store. This mark-up is typically well over 100%. By partnering directly with
Sun-Oka Fruit Farms you will cut out all the middlemen and collect much of that margin for your group or organization.
You will keep $8-10 from each 10lb box of apples your group sells. That adds up quickly.
That's over 33% of each sale that goes into your treasury, AND your supporters will STILL be paying significantly less than their regular grocery store prices.
This is truly a Win-Win-Win arrangement.
3. IT'S AS EASY AS... *ahem*... APPLE PIE
Our custom-built online fundraising platform takes almost all of the burden off of you, the organizer.
There are no order forms, no cash and no cheques for you or your group members to distribute, collect, misplace or tabulate.
You can have your fundraiser registered and running in less than five minutes.
Spread the word quickly and easily via email and/or social media, then just sit back and watch the sales come rolling in.
Your profits will be sent to you as soon as the sale is complete, and the apples will be delivered to your chosen drop-off point shortly thereafter.
It really couldn't be any easier.
4. IT'S STRESS FREE, RISK FREE AND GUILT FREE
We know that a poorly designed fundraiser can be burdensome, frustrating, ineffective and uninspiring.
That's why we've designed our fundraising process to be as easy, effective and broadly appealing as possible --- for everyone involved.
There's no money for you to collect or paperwork to organize. There's no data entry, no record keeping, no errors to be made.
And because you'll be selling a broadly popular, fresh and healthy product there is no reason to feel reluctant, apprehensive or guilty about asking others to support your fundraiser. Remember, you are offering a product most people are already buying, but with much higher quality and at a lower price.
Our online platform also removes all of your risk. There are ZERO upfront costs or fees involved to get started. There is no inventory for you to manage. The logistics and payments are all handled for you. Everything is fully transparent -- you can track your sales online in real-time.
5. IT'S REPEATABLE
The most common feedback we get after making a delivery of our fruit is: "How and when can we get more of these apples?"
So starting this year we're extending our fundraising program to give groups the option to run multiple recurring sales.
You can choose to hold just a one-time sale at harvest time, have a couple of sales throughout the fall, or run a recurring monthly sale until our supplies run out.
Get a steady source of revenue month after month without additional effort, and make a huge stride towards reaching your fundraising target for the year.
Our prize winning apples and low prices are a terrific value that will keep buyers coming back for more, month after month...
Groups that have run fundraisers with us have reported
overwhelmingly positive experiences.
Here's a sampling of what they had to say:
“Our apple fundraiser was a terrific success.
I am still hearing positive feedback many months later. We would love to participate again this coming autumn.”
— Karla G., Vancouver, BC
“This was the easiest and best fundraiser our school has ever done. The product is superior quality - the apples taste amazing - and the farm has excellent
customer service and respond to your questions immediately. We would highly recommend them to anyone.”
— Linda S., Burnaby, BC
“This was our best supported and most talked about fundraiser in years. The feedback we received from supporters was phenomenal. We have had multiple requests for this to be a regular fundraiser every year because families enjoyed the product so much. The quality of apples was beyond what most of us thought was possible. It has truly been a great experience and a pleasure to work with Sun-Oka Fruit Farms and I foresee even greater success with them in the future.”
— Shannon L., Calgary, AB
“This fundraiser was a huge success. The whole process was very smooth and easy since everything was done online. The apples were AMAZING. They were so outstanding that we ran a second fundraising campaign immediately following our first one because our community wanted more! Thanks for delivering such a high quality product in such a seamless way. We can't wait for the next apple season!”
— Taryn B., Burnaby, BC
“We really enjoyed working with Sun-Oka Fruit Farms for our apple fundraiser. It's a great healthy fundraiser to do for your school and the product is amazing! I even ordered more for myself at a later date because they were just so good. The delivery and online ordering made it all so very easy.”
— Heather R., Pitt Meadows, BC
“Many of our supporters were disappointed in not having ordered more boxes of the apples after they tasted them. Now that people have experienced how amazing these apples are, or heard about them from all the talk that surrounded them after they were received, I have no doubt that this fundraiser will promote itself year after year.”
— Citadel Park School,

Greg started re-selling our apples a few years ago to raise money for his daughter's hockey team. He started by just selling to his close contacts, but word soon spread around town and his project has snowballed ever since.
In the first year he drove to our orchard and collected all his apples in his pickup truck. The second year he needed two pickup trucks. Now he has to borrow a heavy duty trailer to haul the thousands and thousands of pounds of apples his customers are asking for.
Greg doesn't advertise his sale. All of this growth has occurred through word of mouth, and it all started through the initiative of a single person.
Imagine how many sales your school or organization can generate with your whole team working together!
People just love these apples so much. We're already getting lots of calls wanting to know when they can get some more.
