Mulch Madness Fundraisers
JK Enterprise Landscape Supply LLC runs an exciting program for school athletic departments, non-profit organizations, or any organization that needs help raising funds. Maximize your organization’s fundraising efforts by calling 703-291-3372 (Office) or Jake Klitenic at 703-928-7793 for more information.
The Mulch Madness program will help you tap into a large market, since most people in the community already purchase mulch for their homes. We stand by ready to help you meet your goals.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
We suggest you try to PRE-SELL the bagged mulch and collect funds upfront before taking delivery of the first tractor-trailer load. This will provide a positive cash flow for your organization. A full tractor-trailer load is typically 1,020-1,600 bags depending on the product (18-20 pallets per truck with 60-90 bags per pallet). Please provide us with at least one month’s notice when placing your order. Weekends book fast in the spring, so constant planning and communication is encouraged to ensure delivery.
WHERE DO I HAVE THE MULCH DELIVERED?
Your organization will need access to a parking lot that is big enough to accommodate a tractor-trailer and store the mulch. It must also have enough space for your customers to pick up their mulch and for you to load trucks for your organization’s deliveries.
HOW ARE MY CUSTOMERS GOING TO GET THEIR MULCH?
Distribution of the mulch is accomplished using a delivery service and via customer pick up. You will need volunteers with trucks and vans to deliver the mulch. Larger organizations may choose to rent a truck (flatbeds work best) to minimize the number of reloading trips and a forklift to load it more efficiently.
HOW MUCH MONEY WILL WE BE ABLE TO RAISE?
Your organization will be able to profit as much as $1.50 per bag sold, depending on the service you offer. Offering delivery can really increase your sales. Many schools and Boy Scouts troops have raised as much as $20,000. Our representative will work with your group to help you maximize your profits.
WHAT PRODUCTS CAN WE SELL?
You can sell any of our bagged items; however, we do require you to purchase at least a pallet of any particular product. We suggest that you offer the following products: double shredded mulch, cedar mulch, color enhanced mulch, topsoil/compost, and potting soil.
Our mulch has been aged to perfection, has a natural dark brown color which is in high demand, is rich in nutrients, and is produced locally. Our mulch is carefully selected from quality, clean, mixed hardwoods; therefore, your fundraising efforts help with environmental concerns since less material is sent to local landfills.
