And find out how well our Fundraising Program will work for you.
Fill out the form at the bottom of the page and we will answer all your questions, set you up and give you everything you need in order to get started. As our full-time Fundraising Coordinator, Zach is available to assist you throughout the fundraising process.
The first thing to take care of is to arrange a date, time and place with the FVM representative for the truck to deliver the product so we have ample time to arrange a truck. In a week’s time, after the master order form is received by the fundraising rep, the truck will be ready to drop off the product at a prior arranged spot by the fundraising coordinator.
Once the order form and brochure have been emailed to you, the fundraising coordinator, print as many copies as you need for each person in your team. Then start selling, either by phone or door to door. Get your customers to place their orders on the order form provided and use the brochure as a selling guide. Print many copies in case your customers would like to keep a copy and get back to you.
Once your order forms are full and your selling is complete, submit your order forms to your fundraising coordinator and he / she will tally up the amounts of each product sold and record it on the master order form (which is then submitted to the Fraser Valley Meats representative.)
Please have a cheque ready for the truck driver at the time of the drop off. Be there to supervise the unloading of the truck and distribute the marked box’s to each member of the fundraising team. Have a plan to store or distribute the boxes soon after delivery, as your orders may take up a significant amount of room and are perishable.
No, there are no taxes on food products.
We will accept a cheque at delivery or mailed with the master order form, or Visa / MasterCard will work before delivery.
Try to deliver the meat as soon as possible and don’t allow to thaw. This is especially important for the “individually frozen” products.
All our fundraiser meat is gluten free, except for our chicken tenders, burgers and pork sausage. It is marked on our brochure.
None of our product is certified organic.
Yes, email your fundraising representative for details on this.
No, there is no minimum order.
Usually we don’t charge delivery except if you are located where are trucks do not normally go. In cases like this, we usually send the product through Clark Freightways where there is usually a small delivery charge depending on the weight. Send us an email to inquire if your location is on our normal truck routes.
We package and wrap our meat so it will stay as cool as possible for as long as possible. Although we try to coordinate our deliveries so that your meat isn’t sitting out much longer than it would in the back of your car on the way back from the grocery store.
Most organization try to have the meat delivered shortly before their kids are picked up from school, soccer practice or any meeting in preparation for an event. This way, the meat isn’t sitting out for long and gets placed into a freezer relatively soon after drop-off. This is only if your organization doesn’t have a large freezer to temporarily store the meat.
Our fundraisers are about 10% more than the prices at our retail stores.
Once you submit your order form, we will send you an email with an invoice attached, saying your order was received and is being processed.
