Wine Experience

Wine Experience

Why raise money through wine?

Even if your fundraising group is not large, the dollar-for-dollar return on specialised wine sales is a proven earner that can outperform almost any other single fundraising initiative. Why? Because it taps into a quality consumer product that people buy anyway, and because it delivers them real savings on their normal expenditure.

How do we choose our wines?

We are happy to guide you through your selections over the phone or via our website. Also, you are welcome to buy any tasting stock at the fundraising rate.

Can we customise our label?

For a minimal fee per case, we can incorporate your logo, letterhead, drawing or any other item or text you’d like. We have a variety of label templates that may appeal, or we can design something completely original on your behalf.

How long does it take once order forms are submitted?

Allow us two weeks to process cheques and credit cards, and to prepare all your customer’s orders. No additional outlay is required from your charitable organisation, nor are there any hidden charges.

Are there any delivery charges?

Wine Experience will deliver your wine direct to your customer’s door Australia-Wide, charges can be checked and confirmed at checkout. If you would like to collect your wine in store, no charges will apply.

Do you have a success story?

One school is using their own custom labelled wine as an ongoing ‘wine club’. Orders are placed directly on our site and delivered to the purchaser’s door. The promotion, ordering and purchasing is all handled direct to parents.

How important is sponsorship?

Sponsorship is the biggest missed opportunity for most schools and clubs. Even the smallest groups can benefit more than they imagine from building long-term relationships with sponsors. Local businesses also benefit by connecting with families in their local community.

Who is Sponsorboard?

Sponsorboard was set up by Jo, a mum of 5 who has spent years volunteering on sports, kindergarten and school committees. The sponsorships she helped to establish have created an important ongoing source of funds for these groups – even long after she left! Jo has seen other groups struggle to create these results and wanted to help.

How can Sponsorboard help?

Sponsorboard helps schools, kindergartens and clubs to organise sponsorship, and creates a custom sponsored magnetic fridge calendar for all students/ members to provide value for sponsors. Sponsorboard has developed a seamless system to manage this process and, importantly, you get to keep the overwhelming majority of the money made!

What is the long-term benefit?

Sponsorboard has designed this program so the sponsorship can support your school or club well into the future. This means you can raise more money without increasing the burden on your own families.

How much can we make in sponsorship?

Get in touch to discuss the potential for your group. Many schools and clubs have the potential to make thousands – the figures might surprise you. head to our website or give us a call to request an info pack with free sample calendar, case studies and profit table.
