Fundraiser FAQs

What is the profit margin for the organization?

Schools/organizations will make 50% profit from each package bought.

What if the organization does not meet the free shipping qualification?

If you are unsure if you will be able to meet the free shipping qualification, you may want to charge each customer an extra $1.00 per package to cover the cost.  If not, the shipping would just simply come out of the end profit.

How does the organization turn in their fundraiser when completed?

The best way is for you to go to, go to the Fundraiser Section, and submit your order through the "Fundraiser Product Order Form" at the bottom of the page.  This way, we can begin to pull and package your order.  As soon as it is packaged and weighed, we will email you with the total.  If you are paying for the shipping, then you can send in your payment at this time.  If we pay for the shipping, then you may pre-pay before the packages are ready since the total is already known.

What payments are accepted?

Cash, if in person, a check to The Gourmet Cupboard, PayPal payment, or Visa, MasterCard or Discover payment.

What if someone wants to order a mix that is not in one of the packages?

Anyone who wants to order individual mixes can go to our website and order through their school/organization, and we will give that group credit for what was ordered.  We will honor this up to 30 days after the end of the fundraiser. For instance, if someone ordered the Dips Package from the fundraiser but also wanted to try the Minestrone Soup, then they would go to our website, order what extra products they wanted, type in their school/organization, and we would ship it directly to them.  At the end of the 30 day period, we would write that group a check from what was ordered from our website.

What if someone wants to order more mixes after the fundraiser is over?

Same as above.

What is the best way to sign someone up for a fundraiser?
