Welcome students, parents, friends, family, and supporters! As you shop Near & Dear’s Fall collection for gifts (or for yourself), you'll be helping to raise much-needed funds for your school or organization while also lifting the local economy.
Let’s get started!
Enjoy looking through Near & Dear’s collection featuring great holiday gift items for everyone on your list. Ask family and friends if they would like to buy something to support your school.
Two ways to shop
Let people know they can place orders at neardearfundraising.com, or record orders on your order form that comes with the catalog distributed at school.
If you are using an order form, collect money with your orders, and submit everything together to your school. Schools will let students know the order deadline and to whom to checks should be written. Keep a copy of the order form for your records.
Extra order forms
You can make copies of the provided order form, or download additional order forms here. View Order Form
Be sure to fill out the top portion of each order form completely allowing Near & Dear to track funds raised per student and award top fundraisers with cool prizes!
If you, family and/or friends are ordering online, customers will be prompted to include school name, student name, and grade upon check-out. This allows Near & Dear to track funds raised per student and award top fundraisers with cool prizes!
Online order shipping
If you are ordering online you can have items shipped directly to your address with a shipping charge. You can also check "ship to school" when processing your order and items will be delivered to your school for free. We allow our vendors four weeks to fulfill customer orders after fundraising closes at schools. The estimated shipping timeframe is the week prior to the Thanksgiving or earlier.
School order delivery
Orders will be delivered to schools the week before Thanksgiving break with plenty of time for holiday preparation. School representatives will distribute orders to students.
Student fundraising prizes
Prizes will be awarded to participating students throughout the program, as well as when program closes for top student fundraisers.
