Fund Raising Opportunities

Because MAC's Gourmet Popcorn Company cares about supporting the community, we offer non-profit organizations special pricing for fund raising events. Profits of 50% or more are realized through taking orders or selling at events. Some organizations have done both at the same time. If desired, we can provide references from some of the organizations listed below.

Some of the organizations below have been using us for their fund raising needs every year for the past four years when we added the flavors to our line of products.

  • Lisbon High School Senior Class
  • The Auburn Preschool, Auburn, Maine
  • Lisbon Recreation Track and Field
  • Geiger Elementary School Sixth Grade Class, Lewiston, Maine
  • Milbridge Home, Milbridge, Maine
  • Leonard Middle School, Old Town, Maine
  • Walking With Grace, MS Benefit, Leeds Maine
  • Top Hat Dance Team, Holden, Maine
  • Saco Jets Baton Team, Saco, Maine
  • Lisbon Community School Teachers

Taking Advance Orders

This is the least risky of fund raisers. By taking advance orders, there is no risk of being left with unsold bags. The steps for this process are:

  • Notify us of the fund raiser and we will send a Word document with an order form via email. Make as many copies as necessary for your group.
  • Notify us of the start and end dates for taking orders.
  • Submit the summary of orders taken by flavor via email. Attached spreadsheets work best or list the total for each flavor within the email, one flavor on each line.
  • We will provide a delivery date based on the size of the order. A minimum 3-week leadtime is required.
  • Payment is expected at delivery by one check from the non-profit organization made out to MAC's Gourmet Popcorn Company.
  • Delivery is made as coordinated. Bags must be counted and compared to the invoice within 24 hours of delivery AND BEFORE the order is separated into individual orders. Any discrepencies to the invoice will be corrected at no charge. AFTER the order is separated or AFTER 24 hours, exchanges will be made at the quoted price per bag.
  • White plastic, grocery-type bags will be provided with the popcorn to assist in distribution.
  • We believe in reusing where possible. If we delivered, we appreciate having any boxes not used in distribution returned for reuse.
  • If delivering is not possible due to distance, we can ship.

You decide whether to collect funds at time of order or to collect when you deliver the popcorn to your customers. Please do not have your customers write checks out to us. Their checks should be made out to your organization.

Selling at Events

This fund raiser can be more risky because the quantity needed is not definite. The risk is that there may not be enough or there may be many unsold bags. Although, we have had some organizations start there fund raising with an event and then any overage is applied to orders that they take during the same time frame. The steps for this process are:

  • Notify us of the date of the event and the date the order will be needed.
  • Order the quantity and flavors that are expected to sell at the event. There is a 7 week shelf life, so if events are school sporting events, take that into consideration.
  • If local, we will deliver. If not, we can ship.
  • Payment is expected at delivery by one check from the non-profit organization made out to MAC's Gourmet Popcorn Company or prior to shipment via credit card or check.
  • We believe in reusing where possible. If we delivered, we appreciate having any boxes not used in distribution returned for reuse.
