Great, I am approved, what is next?
Upon approval, the organization will submit a photo to be used on their personalized label for the Fundraiser Blend coffee. Within 2-3 days to the start date of the fundraiser, Java Momma will provide the organization and sponsoring barista with a personalized fundraising ordering link, as well as a printable fundraising packet that includes descriptions of coffees and a customer order form so that manual orders can also be collected.
Does Java Momma collect my supporter’s information?
The Customer Order Form is solely for the use of the Barista and/or benefiting organization to collect orders and the supporter’s contact information. Java Momma will not deal with any customer information past the point of the benefiting organization, therefore, this form is not to be returned to Java Momma. Additionally, the Customer Order Form is an added tool from Java Momma; Barista’s and benefiting organizations are not required to use the form and can choose to process all orders via their site.
How long will the fundraiser run?
Fundraisers will run for three weeks from the start date.
How are orders placed?
Sellers can choose to distribute the organization’s personalized ordering link to collect orders or can take manual orders with a printed seller’s packet. A combination of both can be used as well.

How are orders shipped?
