Fundraising For Your Organisation, Club, Non-profit Group, School ...
Option 1: Member sales, office sales & online sales. Run a paper order campaign for a set time frame. Members have access to order forms for collecting sales and returning them to your organisation. There is no freight charge for these orders. The person collecting the order is responsible for delivering products back to the client. We recommend following this up with Option 2 and Option 3.
Option 2: Office sales and online sales. Run an ordering option directly through your club office. You collate these orders and send them in to us twice a month on the 5th & 20th of the month (or dates to be arranged). Orders are delivered back to you for distribution. There is no freight charged on these orders. You will be charged $5.50 per box for all orders placed. Includes option 3.
Option 3: Online sales only. Simply direct all members to our website for ordering and they can choose their own freight option (as listed below). It may also be appropriate for your club to hold some stock for instant sales. We are able to supply you with a range of products on consignment (no upfront charge but you will be invoiced on reorders to replace stock when sold).
As an added incentive, all clients who purchase 5 boxes of tea in a single order will receive 5 free sample sachets of other flavours to try.**
* Orders placed through your office or membership are collated and shipped on 5th & 20th of the month.
** Offers may vary from time to time.

Communi-Tea Fundraising may restrict the number of organisations involved within a geographical region to avoid over saturation.
Why are the teas not available through any retail outlets in NZ?
To maintain the exclusive nature of ordering so that the teas can be used for fundraising efforts we have chosen not to offer them into any traditional retail environments.

All clients who purchase in these situations will be asked to choose from our list of partner charities to receive $1 per box sold.
