One of our most popular fundraising programs, Shop at Wilson Farm Day is a great opportunity for schools to raise funds for much needed supplies, equipment, field trips, and more. Since its inception more than 10 years ago, participating schools have raised over $125,000 through the Shop at Wilson Farm Day program. Read on for more information about the program and how it works.
Contact us to see what dates are available and if your school or organization is eligible. Then it's up to you to advertise the day as much as you want! The more people you give your flyer that shop on your day, the more money you raise. Simple as that.
Each school or organization gets one Shop at Wilson Farm Day. We create and distribute customized printed and digital flyers to each school to help generate awareness for the program. On a school’s designated Shop at Wilson Farm Day, supporters present their school’s flyer (or show the digital version on their smartphone) at the register, and 20% of their pre-tax purchase amount will automatically go towards their school.
Almost anything in the store counts towards Shop at Wilson Farm Day: Produce, grocery items, baked goods, prepared foods, items from our Garden Shop, meats, seafood and much more. The only items that are excluded are CSA shares, gift cards, case orders and/or other bulk or custom orders.
Contact your school or organization for a flyer.
Absolutely! Feel free to share your flyer with friends, neighbors, and other community members. Our only request is that you do not distribute flyers here at Wilson Farm.
Don’t worry! If we close due to weather, we’ll set up an alternate date for you.
Shortly after your Shop at Wilson Farm Day, we’ll personally deliver a check to your school. The school principal will decide how the funds will be used. In previous years, schools have used their earnings to purchase projectors, books, scholarship programs, and even lecture series.
