Delivery Sponsorships

DELIVERY CARD SPONSORSHIP ($1 per card, 250 card minimum)

One of the easiest ways to support us is to directly sponsor our deliveries of recycled flowers, encouragement and personal moments of kindness. Become a monthly sponsor, sponsor deliveries to a particular facility, or sponsor one of our special deliveries over the holidays, for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Veteran’s Day and other major days of recognition.

Your company’s logo will appear on the delivery card of every bouquet delivered as part of your sponsorship.

The back of the card contains three main areas:

  • Top Section: Promotes a corporate partner that financially supports the mission.
  • Middle Section: The volunteer who created the bouquet signs their name, offering a personal community connection to the recipient.
  • Bottom Section: Acknowledges where the flowers have been donated from to make the bouquet.

“To the organizers & sponsors, and especially Trader Joe’s and Lisa, what a kind and thoughtful gift you give to patients. We certainly appreciated the beautiful yellow lilies that continued to open for days that came to Jack during his hospital stay. A sincere thank you.”

In 2017, more than 30 groups engaged in our mission through paid Group Engagement Opportunities.

“This place is phenomenal. It is a great concept of bringing smiles and happiness one flower at a time. Had a great day with my coworkers from Determine, Inc. for our Day of Service. We loved putting the bouquet of flowers together and we loved delivering them to the residents at the nursing homes even more. Every resident was so appreciative to receive the gifts. Every encounter was a blessing.”

Gather your friends and colleagues for a happy hour experience like none other. Flowers After Hours is a perfect way to participate in our mission of hope and kindness, while enjoying drinks, hors d’oeuvres and the healing power of flowers. Attendees will participate in a hands-on demonstration with a local floral design expert. Each person will take home an arrangement that they create to enjoy at home. Any additional arrangements made will be donated to our deliveries at nursing homes and hospitals throughout the week. No previous floral experience necessary!

“Such a good time! Such a wonderful cause! I really enjoyed the evening and meeting several new ladies!”
“Great event! Met some lovely new women and learned a new skill!”

Flowers After Hours includes:

  • Organizational Overview
  • Meet and Greet with fellow attendees
  • Floral Instruction from a local florist
  • One floral arrangement to take home and enjoy!

Minimum of 15 participants required for a private Flowers After Hours.

Bi-monthly public Flowers After Hours are also available (please see our Events tab for more information).

Vase Drive

Random Acts of Flowers repurposes vases, reducing the impact on our landfills, by actively collecting vase donations to support our mission. Nearly 500 delivered bouquets each week are arranged in donated vases!. Help keep RAF’s shelves stocked by encouraging group participation and holding a “vase drive.” Challenge your teams by setting a goal and/or asking them to include $1 in each vase, then match the total with a tax-deductible donation. RAF will provide marketing materials and work with your team to ensure a seamless vase drive.

Percent of Sales Event

Involve your audience and the community by hosting a “percent-of-sales” event benefitting Random Acts of Flowers. This is an excellent way to demonstrate your business’ community commitment as well as an important opportunity to introduce RAF to new patrons. RAF will work with your marketing team to create cross-promotional elements to generate sales, including targeting RAF volunteers, to further build on your support of RAF’s mission.

Operational Underwriting

Each RAF branch operates on an efficient budget with expenses that may be offset by support from the community.

You can support our mission contributing funds or in-kind services including:

  • $250 Overhead Cost of 25 Arrangements
  • $500 Floral Supplies for 6 months
  • $1000 Annual workshop supplies
  • $1200 Facility Utilities + Maintenance for 1 month
