WorldsBestWineClubs.com is an innovative solution for non-profit and for-profit organizations looking for alternate means of fundraising or revenue generation, though a privately-branded wine club using your organization's name and logo.
Fundraising has never been easier. Or more delicious.
How It Works
Partnering with WorldsBestWineClubs.com to launch your own fundraising wine club is simple. First, you work with our team to determine the best wine club model for your organization: the number of shipments per year, the number of wines per shipment, wine styles, and overall shipment price. Our standard shipment is three bottles of wine (one white, two reds) every quarter for $99, but we can customize your club to make it right for you.
Upon agreement, we launch your wine club with a privately-branded portal site featuring your organization's name, logos, and color scheme, linked either through our WorldsBestWineClubs.com website or your own site. You promote the club to your supporters and send them to your wine club portal, where they sign up for the club. Whenever a regular shipment is due, WorldsBestWineClubs.com charges the members' credit cards on file and ships out the wines across the country from our warehouse in the heart of California's Central Coast wine country. We handle all wine selections, procurement, licensing, shipping, compliance, liability, taxation, and customer service. Your organization just sits back and collects a check.
How And When You Get Paid
Payment to your organization is made no more than thirty days after your shipment is released to your members. We present you with a full accounting of the revenue raised and wine costs for the member shipments, and then we split the remaining gross profit with your organization 50/50. This means that on our standard 3 bottles for $99 wine club, our model guarantees your organization at least a $25 return on every club member shipment.
All overhead and logistics costs and handled through the WorldsBestWineClubs.com percentage of gross profit, so your organization is not responsible for them, nor will they dig into your profit. Non-profit wine club partners receive their portion of the revenue from us as a charitable donation, while for-profit partners receive the revenue as an licensing fee for use of your name and logo, which means no issues for either set of institutions with taxation, liability, or your tax-exempt status.
Where The Wines Come From
As a subsidiary of the country's foremost niche wine online retailer PasosBestWines.com, we have cultivated tremendous relationships with scores of winery partners throughout California to showcase their hand-crafted wines through our wine clubs. Typically, we work with smaller, family-run boutique wineries producing 7000 cases or less per year, and we work closely with our partners to provide only their finest award-winning, highest-rated wines to our club members. These are not mass-distributed wines that you will find in your local supermarket, liquor store, or wine shop. They are the true gems of California winemaking, wines of the highest quality that you will be proud to share at your next dinner party, cocktail reception, or just casually drinking with friends.
The exclusive agreements we have with our winery partners allows us to keep the cost of our wines low, typically at a 50% or less wholesale rate, which means a higher profit margin per member for your wine club. We are constantly seeking our new winery partners and adding to our portfolio of award-winning wines from throughout California. For a list of our current winery partners, please click here.
