NextGenTreesUSA structured its fundraising program to help you raise critical funding for your school programs. Tree seedlings are under $10.00 and provide an approximate 70% return on each seedling sold. That is an outstanding monetary incentive, even more so considering it is a product-based fundraiser. Besides offering one of the highest returns in fundraising, selling tree seedlings has a feel-good quality that comes from engaging families and friends. As you generate income for your school, you are also beautifying your communities, restoring our planet’s atmosphere, and creating a living legacy for your students.
NextGenTreesUSA offers two types: 1. Deciduous (hardwoods that lose their leaves annually) Northern Red Oak, Sycamore, Black Locust. 2. Coniferous (considered evergreens in our region, with needles and cones year-round). Eastern White Pine, Loblolly Pine, Virginia Pine. NOTE: Substitutions may occur depending on supplier availability.
All tree seedlings offered will grow in New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington, DC, Virginia, and North Carolina.
Yes, there is a nominal minimum order in the way NextGenTreesUSA is required to ship tree seedlings. Tree seedlings are packed in round lots of a 25 count for each species of deciduous (hardwood) tree seedlings and round lots of 50 count for each species of conifers (evergreen). Orders of deciduous seedlings that are a fractional multiple of 25 is rounded up. (Ex. 536 seedlings is rounded up to a total of 550, a whole number multiple of 25) For conifers, orders are shipped in whole multiples of 50. (Ex. 613 seedlings is rounded up to 650).
NextGenTreesUSA tree seedlings are one-year old trees, 6 to 8 inches tall. They are alive and tender. The supplier has packaged the seedlings using best practices to maintain the essential moisture for their longevity until planted in the ground within 5 days of receipt. Breaking up the professional packaging in their respective round lots would retard the survivability of the seedlings.
There are no hidden costs when fundraising with NextGenTreesUSA. The tree seedlings cost $2.70 each. Our online tools assume our suggested sale price of $9.00 each. That provides your school with a ~70% return.
NextGenTreesUSA charges a fee for the shipping and handling of the tree seedlings. There is a base fee of $29.00 for the first 100 seedlings plus an additional $10.00 charge for each additional 100 seedlings (or fraction of 100). NOTE: Each entity selling the seedlings must submit a Certificate of Tax Exemption to NGT to avoid state sales tax (and any additional jurisdictional tax) that would otherwise be due.
NextGenTreesUSA tree seedlings are packaged and shipped to your fundraising coordinator at your school from mid-March to mid-April for Spring planting. Note: Tree seedlings need to be in ground within 5 days of receipt. With COVID-19, arrangements can be made so families may pick them up at your school.
No. Due to the nature of the product and the sensitivity to getting them “in the ground”, NGT is unable to warranty either the survivability or growth of any tree seedling. We stress planting them within 5 days of receipt and nurturing them once planted in accordance with the planting instructions that accompany the seedlings.
