Another recommended fundraising supplier is Con Yeager Spice Company, an 85-year old spice and seasonings company based in Western Pennsylvania. Their spice fundraiser program offers great value to customers with extremely generous portions of their various spices and seasonings for the money.
Doing an order-taker fundraiser with gourmet spices and seasonings is a great fundraising idea for small groups, youth sports teams, churches and schools. The products offered by Con Yeager will practically sell themselves because they are such a good deal. Another plus is that they manufacture all their own spices and seasonings, so there’s no middleman or fundraising distributor in the equation.
For example, their Rotisserie Chicken Rub is a full pint (12.6 ounces) of blended seasonings and the retail price is just $6. Similarly, a pint (12 ounces) of their Smokey BBQ blend is also just $6.
Regular spices that everyone uses also come in generous sizes, which means you’ll get more orders because your supporters will realize its a good deal. Finely ground Black Pepper or Cinnamon come in 7.5 ounce sizes and are $6 as well.
Here’s a partial list of some of their best fundraising products:
- Sweet Basil
- Fine Ground Pepper
- Granulated Garlic
- Chopped Onion

Their fundraiser brochure provides a good explanation of all their unique items and clearly lists the portion sizes of each spice, seasoning, marinade, rub, etc. It also lists any possible allergens next to each item, which means that customers will feel safe ordering from you.
As with any fundraising product sale, you can raise more money by doing these three things:
- Provide samples of the products so people can see, taste, and smell the spices
- Use a sales script that explains why you are raising funds and asks for their help
- Offer an alternate product like 2-for-1 pizza discount cards for people who don’t want the spices
