How long have you been in business?
Holiday Wreath Company has been providing non-profit groups with holiday fundraisers since 1977. Our experience has given us the opportunity to constantly improve the Profit with our fundraising program. This experience benefits your organization’s fundraising efforts. We can help you Create your own Fund-Raising Tradition.
How are you environmentally friendly?
The alpine fir trees only grow in the Rocky Mountain areas above 5,000 feet.The alpine and grand fir are a soft needle to touch and thus more user friendly. We wait until after the first hard frost before we begin collecting the boughs to make the wreaths. The frost causes the needles of the alpine to set, creating a longer lasting wreath than you will find anywhere else. We are environmentally friendly when we collect our boughs, only pruning the outer ten or so inches off of the trees. This stimulates the growth, and in a year or two, the trees are healthier, and fuller than they would be if we had not trimmed them.
What is your customer service like?
We have a customer service team that works hard to be accessible, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We pride ourselves in offering customer service that goes the extra mile every time! Remember, your success is our goal.
How does our group price the products?
Your group decides your own prices. We feel it is important that every group has the ability to decide their own profit margin and also be sure the prices fit for the community where they sell. In addition, to assist your group in deciding your prices, we have a price guide with our suggested retail prices. This gives your group a good idea for pricing. The products you are selling are the Premier Wreath of the Holiday Season. Remember this is a Classic Fund-Raiser with the highly valued and needed products.
How simple is the pricing strategy?
We strive to keep the program as simple as possible. One of the ways we do this is by keeping the pricing simple. We give you one total price per item to simplify the process.
How does the guarantee work?

We mail a final invoice to your group shortly after we receive your 50% payment to start processing. Terms for payment are upon receipt of invoice. We accept payment by, either a check or money order from your organization (have your customers write their checks out to your group) or Visa / Master Card.

Final Payment must be received before we can ship your wreaths.
This of course will be after you have sold all your products and collected all your money. We apologize for the changes but in an effort to keep cost down, we feel this will increase our productivity and efficiency. We have had groups over optimistically ordering in the past. (Ordering before collecting funds) This causes us to over manufacture products, and creates waste which cost all of us.
