Why is Watkins the best way to
- Recognition! Watkins Products have
been distributed directly to our homes since
1868! That has made us a household name for over
and Selection! Over 350 individual products that appeal
to all members of the family. These top quality spices,
gourmet seasonings, health and wellness items, personal care
and household products are things that people need,
use and offer as gifts to others every day.
- Flexibility! You are not
asking your supporters to spend additional dollars from their
budget; you are only asking them to change brands. They will
not be asked to buy a case of something they don't
usually purchase or something they don't really want. There
is sufficient variety in our product line to meet the needs and
wants of every member of the family.
- Quality! Watkins'
100% Satisfaction Guarantee was the first of its kind in North America and assures
you continual support for your programs.
- Experience! We like to say we are old
because we are good; not good because we are old. Since our
foundation in 1868, many service clubs, charitable organizations,
teams, church and school groups have used Watkins Products
to reach their fundraising goals.
- Service! Watkins makes available all
the materials and support your organization needs for a successful
- Profit! Watkins offers your organization
the opportunity to make more money. Because you are offering
products used in millions of households daily, your average order
will increase over time; and so will your profit. Your
non-profit organization will earn between 19% and 25% of all
orders; providing a steady stream of income once your supporters
switch their shopping to Watkins products.
- Simplicity! Your supporters order
directly from Watkins Inc. using a catalogue or our easy to navigate website. They
can order online, by 800#, fax or even by regular mail. You don't have
canvassers (a real safety concern, especially where children are
involved), you collect no money, you handle no merchandise
and you make no deliveries!
reduce the costs of running a Fundraiser!
Watkins Inc. is proud to introduce a revolutionary, risk free
fundraising opportunity. Nonprofit organizations receive a free web site
where supporters can visit, read about the organization's goals and
activities, and support those goals with purchases of Watkins quality
products. Your organization's free web site links directly to Watkins'
online catalog giving your supporters access to over 350 Watkins
products. All sales generated through your site will benefit your
organization. Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to personalize
their own web sites and use the home page to share their mission and
fundraising goals (all through a simple to use online editor).
is absolutely no financial risk for your organization and it provides an
ongoing method of fundraising.
Consider The Following Example:
Let's assume that between your membership
and their friends and family you can count on 500 people to support
your efforts. If each of them ordered only $30.00 worth of
Watkins Products; products that they are already buying at the
grocery or drug store, that would result in $15,000 in sales. Assuming the minimum percentage of 19%; that would yield $2,850
dollars for your organization (at 25% you would have $3,750). If this were a one-time fundraiser that would probably not be too
bad! But... Since we are talking about every day products that
people use up and re-purchase, this
activity could go on month after month after
month! And, satisfied members will refer
others to your site so that your fundraising income would continue
to rise as your support
