Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Mini Eats Fundraiser & why is my school doing it?

It is a school fundraiser where students raise money by receiving sponsorship from friends & family for growing their own veges & herbs. Every student receives their own mini garden (after raising $15) with everything they need to grow their own mini garden as well as a unique fundraising page & text code to receive donations for the school.

Are any details kept private?

Privacy was a key concern from the beginning with building our system, so the entire site runs on 256-bit SSL encryption & all details are securely held. You can choose to remain anonymous simply using a nickname/username if you prefer & all payments are handled directly through Payment Express - one of NZ's leading online payment processors.

Does it cost anything?

No - there are absolutely no costs to any student & you receive the garden & all sponsorship materials free of charge. We receive a percentage of the overall total raised from the school to cover our costs.

Can I only take donations online? What if someone gives me cash?

Cash can still be collected directly by the school - we recommend taking any cash received into school the next day so they are able to manually add the cash received to your donation total online.
