We’re taking the question marks out of this year’s biggest fundraising dates.
Throughout the year, holidays are times of celebrations, gatherings, and nostalgia. And food!

The new year is a time to reflect, regroup, and plan for a banner fundraising year ahead! Here we are in the first chapter of 2022 - what story will your fundraising group write throughout the year? If you’re looking for inspiration and ideas, the holidays are a great place to start!
Why holidays? Throughout the year, holidays are times of celebrations, gatherings, and nostalgia. And food! Think of Grandma’s Easter rolls, or Mom’s holiday snack table. Food is a gesture of love and community - making your fundraiser with Terri Lynn premium nuts, snack mixes and treats an excellent fit.
We’re taking the question marks out of this year’s holiday planning with calendar dates, order cut-offs, and product recommendations below. We recommend identifying your top fundraising holidays now, marking your calendar, and then starting to plan for a productive 2022 with Terri Lynn!

St. Patrick's Day

Turn the luck of the Irish into an extra lucky fundraising day for your group! St. Patrick’s Day is all about fun, which means you can be catchy, creative, or clever with your marketing materials. Think about hosting a Shamrock-themed baking contest with Terri Lynn signature nuts, or sharing your favorite ways to use Terri Lynn snack mixes in a party-sized charcuterie board.

Easter comes along right when we’re all ready to shed our winter coats and start gathering together outdoors again. It’s also a great time to rally your community around a common cause. Some fun Easter-themed ideas include Terri Lynn baskets full of signature mixes, or even hosting a community picnic with Terri Lynn treats on the table.

There are a handful of gifts moms love most on Mother’s day: handmade art, chocolates, and food cooked by loved ones. Terri Lynn can help with the latter two! Mother’s Day is a great time to sell chocolates for gifting to Mom, or promoting premium nuts as the perfect addition to a family-made dinner or dessert (while Mom relaxes with her feet up).

This midsummer celebration is a great time to hop on your supporters’ radar with snacks that pair perfectly with Fourth of July barbeques and picnics. Make fundraising sparks fly with a table at your community center or parade, or set up shop at your local grocery store where everyone’s headed for burger-makings (a bag of Terri Lynn nuts is sure to be the perfect addition to the neighborhood potluck).

Wrap up the summer with a fundraiser all about heading back to school! Terri Lynn mixes make the perfect addition to lunch boxes and sports activities (and snack bowls for parents headed back to work after summer vacations). Think of ways you can involve your school district or local sports venue as partners.

Fundraising at Halloween isn’t spooky at all! Get sweet rewards with a fundraiser that focuses on the fun of the season. Bring out your inner kid with a fundraising theme focused on treats, or use the holiday as an opportunity to promote the baking season that lies ahead.

Buddy the Elf said it best - the main food group during the holidays is candy! And it’s no coincidence that Terri Lynn premium snacks and treats fit perfectly into stockings. Plan a holiday-season fundraiser where your supporters can purchase their loved ones’ favorite goodies, and give the gift of Terri Lynn!

New Year’s Eve
December 31, 2022
While New Year’s resolutions are on everyone’s mind, plan a fundraiser to get them set up with the nuts and healthy mixes they’ll reach for in the coming months. Almonds are full of vitamin E, cashews have heart-healthy fats, and apricots are rich in vitamin A. All are great and tasty ingredients for a healthy start to the year!
