Why a Trash Bag Fundraiser?
Trash bags are an item most households and businesses use every day. Trash bags make an excellent fundraiser item due to their overall usefulness, there’s no product seasonality so you can sell bags throughout the year, and it’s a unique idea with less competition!
Why Rolls For Goals?
Your sponsors will love our product. Rolls For Goals bags are durable, heavy and made of 100% recycled material. Trash bags are incredibly useful for everyday life. Our bags are often used by many of our nonprofit fundraising groups for their own efforts including beach cleanups, animal shelters or health care organizations.
We’re behind your success. We offer you our bags at competitive, wholesale prices, allowing you to create and keep a high profit margin. The team at Rolls for Goals is here for you, providing you with resources to get started and sustain your efforts and a service team who will answer your questions and cheer your efforts!
What kind of organizations do your fundraisers support?
We work with all kinds of teams with very small groups to large organizations. Schools, churches, scout organizations, sports leagues and nonprofits. If you’re looking to buy bags direct, we can refer you to an existing fundraiser and we have programs available to support nonprofits who are in need of trash bags for special projects.
What should we expect in sales?
We’ve created a calculator so your team can set a goal and see clearly how many rolls they’ll need to sell to achieve it.
We recommended selling price of $12.00 per roll, but this is only a suggestion. You can determine your selling price and profit margin, based on a number of factors including geographic location and sponsor expectations.
Don’t forget to consider prizes and incentives that will inspire friendly competition and help boost sales!
Do we have to collect money while we’re selling?
Yes, it’s helpful to collect money while taking orders. Ask your sponsors to pay by cash or check. Checks should be made payable to your organization.
At the end of your fundraiser, you will send Rolls For Goals the cost of your bags sold and keep the rest as 100% profit to benefit your organization’s goals.
What’s the recommended timeframe to host a fundraiser?
We recommend a 2-3 week selling period including weekends.
Last minute orders should be expected and it’s a best practice to allow times to accommodate them.
The majority of your sales will come in during early days, so there’s not a need to let the fundraiser go on indefinitely. Knowing there’s a limited timeframe for selling is motivating for your participants.
What about sales tax?
Mississippi residents must provide a copy of their tax-exempt certificate or enter their Mississippi tax-exempt number.
Organizations outside of Mississippi are responsible for collecting and paying their own sales tax if necessary.
What are your payment options?
We accept checks, money orders, Mastercard, Visa, Discover and PayPal. For schools and large organizations, we will consider purchase orders. Payment is expected at time of order unless pre-approved for credit.
Is there a minimum order?
We have a minimum order of one case, or 50 rolls.
Can we order more bags when our campaign is over, or buy direct from Rolls For Goals?
Yes! Our high-quality bags are popular and requested post-fundraiser. Some fundraisers plan for this and order an extra case. Others order direct through our fundraiser specialists or online here.
How long does it take to receive the bags?
We generally have bags on hand; however it’s a good idea to plan on 2 weeks from order to delivery.
How much is shipping?
Freight cost is determined by order size and "ship to" address. Click here for a calculator to help you estimate your costs.
