Fruit and coffee fundraiser
See Why Our Partners Love Inventive Fundraisers

“I have worked with Stan and the citrus program for over 25 years with my high school music programs in Montana and Washington state. The product is fantastic, the prices fair, the profit margins excellent and the personal service beyond reproach. This is one of the best fund raisers any program can do. Thanks Stan!” –Kevin Hartse, Spokane, WA

“Stan Rasmussen offers our students a quick and easy way to raise significant funds for our music program. His decades-long working relationship with the Missoula County Public School program is no accident. Stan works extremely hard to provide great service and great products. Every year community members call ME wanting to make sure they don’t miss out on our fruit sales! His experience and expertise make fundraising EASY!” Leon Slater, Hellgate High School

We appreciate his ability to work with us and his ability to provide us with a fresh fruit product that literally sells itself.  Stan is great to work with and the fruit quality is exceptional. Thank you for an amazing fundraising opportunity.”  Shannon McWilliams, Beaverhead County Extension

“I met Stan Rasmussen at our music convention in my second month of teaching, and he talked me into going with fruit sales for my yearly fund raiser. We have sold fruit, and now coffee, every year since 1990! My community looks forward to the products, especially since they know everything is guaranteed. Sorting day, followed by delivering that afternoon and evening, is always an adventure, but our customers are thrilled to receive their fresh fruit! Stan keeps me posted on when to expect the fruit, almost down to the quarter hour. I appreciate the service he provides so much, in fact, one year I rushed my order and ended up 100 boxes of oranges short – Stan somehow came up with what I needed and drove the oranges from Missoula to Cut Bank…in December. I have never even considered straying from this fund raiser. Stan is the best!” –Brenda Schilling, Cut Bank Schools

grapefruit“We have worked with Stan Rasmussen for 20+ years and would never consider changing! Citrus is the capstone fundraiser my group does each year and due to the quality of the fruit, it is our most lucrative. I start receiving calls in September from community members who want to be sure they are on the call list for the citrus sale that happens in February! And I always get calls from people who got missed when we actually sell–they are not happy! Stan is easy to work with, keeps me informed of the timeline, provides me with order forms, checks up on our order and is just generally very helpful. You won’t go wrong working with Stan!”Kay Randall, Troy High School

“I’ve been selling fruit through Stan for the last 9 years (longer if you go before my time here) and have never been dissatisfied. He is polite, consistent, easy to work with, flexible and guarantees a great product! My community looks forward to this sale every year. I plan on continuing to sell fruit though Stand until the very end!” –Jennifer Kirby, Florence-Carlton Bands

“In my fourth decade of collaborating with my ‘fruit guy’, ‘Stan-the-man’ Rasmussen.  We have successful events, well administered and professionally run. He is sure, steadfast, reliable and a gas! He will do you right!” Gary Gillett, Sentinel High School

“I first had the opportunity to meet and work with Stan Rasmussen in 1978. For the next thirty years Stan served my programs with a high quality product, terrific service and personal care. Stan has a unique understanding for the financial needs of our programs. He is respectful of my time as a teacher and the demands of a busy schedule. Year after year “the Citrus Sale” is a sought after commodity in our community. It has been a foundational source of funding for our music programs in Missoula. Terrific product and an outstanding salesman–you can’t lose.” –John H. Combs, Missoula Public Schools
