Schools are successfully fundraising with wine and it’s easy to see why. Wine fundraisers are a fun opportunity for a social occasion with fellow parents. It’s much more sophisticated than some of the more common school fundraisers; but keeping it light-hearted and fun will dispel the fear factor and remind donors that they do not need to be experts to enjoy good wine. It’s a great opportunity to get to know people and build support for your school.
The process is simple:
1. Students create art for labels.
2. Northwest Cellars works with the school to schedule a wine tasting with the parents. Using an order form, parents order the wines they like with their own child’s artwork on the label.
3. The school gathers the order forms and submits a summary of the orders to Northwest Cellars. We process the orders, do the labeling, and the school picks up the wine at our Kirkland location.
Keys to success: a good group of volunteers to manage the process, a graphic designer to assemble the final labels, a great turnout at the wine tasting event
