What is Sold: Gertrude Hawk offers three different fundraisers—a candy bar sale, a seasonal chocolate sale (such as Easter candy) and an online fundraiser.
About the Program: In the candy bar program, students sell boxes of candy bars at a price set by the school. Bars cost between $0.60 and $1 each, and markup is at the school’s discretion. In the more traditional seasonal chocolate sale, students sell chocolates from a provided catalogue at a set price. (There isn’t any additional information about the online program available on the company’s fundraising Web site.) For more information on all the programs, interested schools will need to call.
Support for Schools: Because the planning and implementation of fundraisers is done over the phone with human-to-human contact, this program has a more personal feel.
Bottom Line: Gertrude Hawk is a respected fundraiser that allows for a good profit margin. Plus, students can really get behind a product they believe in.
