Non-Profit Fundraising with Shaklee
It’s not always easy pouring cash when you are running a non-profit. I totally get that. Finding new revenue streams such as grants, scholarships and donations can be hard to come by. This is why it is important for non-profits to have alternate streams of income, to help support them through the present as well as afford them the opportunity to serve more and more people in the future. I know about this experience first hand as my previous employment was working for the Girls Scouts of Colorado as the Community Partnership Manager. There are so many people we want to serve, yet some years it was harder to serve as many girls as we would like due to funding.
So when I left Girl Scouts of Colorado, to start my own business venture as a Shaklee Business Builder, the first thing I wanted to make sure to do was to sign up Girl Scouts of Colorado as a non-profit distributor because I could see how a company like Shaklee, could help bring in additional revenue to the organization as well as help others in our community feel better, healthier, and live longer, all while protecting our planet.
Shaklee’s non-profit fundraising program is based on a simple concept called “Cause Marketing.” You are likely familiar with this term, it isn’t anything new. You can’t walk into a store today without being alerted to these kinds of programs as more and more for profit companies partner with good causes—and it’s based on the simple principle that you’d be willing to switch brands to support a worthy cause. You shop a certain grocery store so your schools can earn E-scrip; you buy certain products to benefit a program. As a kid, I remember my grandmother saving all of our Campbell Soup labels so we could help our school earn money.
Marketing for a cause is not something new—it has worked well for quite some time and will continue to be a legitimate way for nonprofits to fundraise, and for companies to support a cause.
Not only are you generating an alternative and sustainable revenue source, but you are getting products that do not cause harm to our planet. Everyone is talking about “going green” today, avoiding toxins in the home and in the environment. What if your membership could redirect their spending to green household products that are safe and effective, and in the process help support your work?
That’s a big WIN for everyone! And, even better for your fundraising activity, they are consumable—meaning that people purchase them all the time and use them regularly.
What if your membership could also purchase other top quality products that benefit their entire family, like children’s nutrition products, health and beauty products, vitamins, weight-management products—items that are good for you, and safe for your family? Wouldn’t that be a real plus that you can offer your membership while they help support your services? Everyone wins!
For over 50 years, generations of families have counted on Shaklee to make products that are naturally safe and proven effective. Research has shown that people who try our products discover for themselves just how great they are and remain loyal users for, on average, over 14 years. Shaklee products have been designed to improve health, work without compromise, and be gentle on the planet. And to back it up, your customers will enjoy an unconditional money-back guarantee. So there is nothing to lose and everything to gain. Total satisfaction guaranteed!
You can become sign up a non-profit you care about as a distributor with Shaklee and I am here to help show you how.

Girls of Courage, Confidence and Character
We are excited to announce that Girl Scouts of Colorado is now a Shaklee nonprofit distributor. What this means is that by shopping through Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Shaklee Personal Website, you not only get products that will help you and your family feel better, but also help support an outstanding organization.
Girl Scouts are 2.7 million strong—1.9 million girls and 800,000 adult volunteers who believe girls can change the world. It began over 100 years ago with one woman, Girl Scouts’ founder Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low, who believed in the power of every girl. She organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, and every year since, we’ve made her vision a reality, helping girls discover their strengths, passions, and talents.
Today, as yesterday, we continue the Girl Scout mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs for girls from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to do something amazing.
A Magnetic Fundraising Partnership
Girl Scouts of Colorado and Shaklee both have a similar mission to help make the world a better place. GSCO is the leading development organization for girls and Shaklee is the leading nutrition company. Just as Girl Scouts helps to build leaders, so does Shaklee. Shaklee’s Business Opportunity opens up doors for people to have the freedom they want to dream big and help others. Both organizations not only serve people in the United States but also around the globe.
