School, Church & Non-Profit Fundraising Programs
Wagners has been an active part of the Twin Cities community for more than 100 years! Our seasonally-offered fundraisers are the perfect solution for groups in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul metro. Occasionally, we offer other plant fundraisers than the current ones listed below. Unfortunately, we’re only able to partner with organizations in the Twin Cities metro and surrounding areas due to logistic restrictions of live plant delivery. Please contact us if you’re unsure whether we can partner with your organization.

Testimonials From Past Fundraising Programs
- Our poinsettia program has been wonderful! These plants are received so well in the community that the kids love to sell them. Wagner’s turn-key program with plenty of days for delivery, clear ordering instructions and colorful flyers makes this an easy fundraiser to manage. We are so blessed to be able to support our school through selling these beautiful plants!!
- This fundraiser has gone from nothing to our second biggest source of funds for charitable giving for our Club. The credit for this goes to the hard work and commitment of our members and the superior product which we are providing through Wagners.
- Our Club made over $500 last year! The process could not be any easier for us. Our parents know how beautiful the plants are and always wish they would have ordered more. The staff at Wagner’s is always there to help out and answer any questions for us.
