Raise money for your community organization with a VG Meats fundraiser!

Raise money for your community organization with a VG Meats fundraiser!

Now more than ever, people are looking for ways to give back to their community—and in some cases, families really need this support. It’s been a tough year for many Canadians, and if we can come together and lighten someone’s load or support an awesome organization, why wouldn’t we? It’s this commitment to helping others that make each and every community great.

VG Meats has a community fundraising program that allows public schools, sports teams, extracurricular clubs, choirs, nonprofits and other community organizations to raise money by selling something everyone needs and enjoys: delicious local meat. We’ve made sure to include high donation margins in order to maximize the amount of money that goes to the organization, and we’ve made it easy to execute with simple online forms. Here’s how it works.

Why we do it

Our first meat fundraiser took place in 2017 and since then, we’ve helped raise almost $90,000 for local schools, clubs and sports teams. It all comes down to a few things that truly matter to us: community, local food and family. VG Meats is a fourth generation family business with strong ties to our community. We’re more than happy to help organizations across southern Ontario raise money for education, team sports and other worthwhile initiatives. It makes us happy to see these organizations thrive with the support of their community and our team!

We’re proud to sell high quality beef, chicken and pork products raised in Norfolk County, and we’re able to offer great margins that add up to big donation numbers. Plus, we know exactly why these fundraisers matter. Years ago, the four VG brothers were kids who played sports, attended public school and took part in a variety of extracurriculars. Today, we’re the parents of school-aged children. We see how much it helps families to access and enjoy these programs.

How it works

To start your fundraiser, simply contact our team. We’ll get you set up and provide simple instructions for communication and online ordering. Your supporters will be able to choose from a variety of VG Meats products — such as our Little VG pepperettes, delicious sausages, hot dogs, and ground beef — and the donation amount is clearly noted above every item price, so they’ll know exactly how much their order is contributing to your school, club or team.

Placing an order in support of a VG Meats fundraiser is easy, convenient and contactless. Supporters will visit our online order page to choose their favourite products and select the organization they are supporting (for example, “Localtown Public School”). They’ll be asked to identify the individual fundraiser (i.e. the student/team member) and enter their own customer information. An email with additional instructions and delivery/pick up information will follow. All online payments are secure.
