Additionally we have included a “frequently asked questions” section at the bottom of this page.
Step 1. Sign up with fundraisingzone.com.

Step 2. Receive your popcorn fundraiser brochures in the mail.
As soon as you sign up, we will be able to ship your popcorn fundraiser brochures to you.
Additionally, we will provide these extra free services just for you:
- You get a free custom parent fundraising letter for your school, sports team, or nonprofit organization.
- You get free collection envelopes to use for your orders.
- Your organization gets to choose between a free prize incentive program, or to receive a 2% cash rebate instead.
Step 3. It’s time to tell the world about your fundraiser!
How will your friends and family know about your popcorn fundraiser unless you tell them?
Here are a few easy ways our clients have had success with getting their message out:
- Make sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to telling your story about why you are having a popcorn fundraiser.
- Send the parent fundraiser letters we write for you with the children.
- Show your gourmet popcorn fundraising catalog to your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers.
- Use social media websites like Instagram and Facebook to reach out to your friends about your special event.
- Call, text, and email friends and family that live out of town.
- Have your children design fundraising posters to put up in school and in the neighborhood.
Step number 4. Send in your orders.
When your customers find the popcorn flavors they like, ask them to pay you in advance for their order.
At the end of your fundraising event, simply collect all your orders together and send them into us. Use the money you collected to pay for your order. Your school or nonprofit gets to keep the rest. Finally, we will ship your popcorn out to you so you can deliver it to your customers.
