After years of working in the fundraising industry, our president and founder, Mark Foertmeyer, noticed a shocking truth: “Traditional” fundraiser items do not have any value. The industry was in a race to the bottom, and it came at the expense of the customer's experience. Mark knew that a fundraiser should be more than that. He took all of his fundraising experience, mixed with years of knowledge and a passion for horticulture, to create Foertmeyer and Sons Greenhouse.
In 1988, we disrupted the fundraising industry by offering a long-term, highly sustainable program our customers and community look forward to year after year. These customers were immediately able to see the value of what they were selling; as a result, over 90% of our customers have continued to partner with us.
At Foertmeyer & Sons, the real product is more than just fresh, healthy, beautiful plants - it is a strong partnership with our customers that will grow and adapt to their needs. We do this by providing unyielding demand for quality and a sustainable program that communities anticipate annually. C ontact us and see the Foertmeyer Difference for yourself!

Welcome to Foertmeyer
& Sons Fundraising
5311 South Section Line Road. Delaware, Ohio 43015
We made the difficult decision to permanently close our retail store. We would like to thank our customers for 25+ years of loyalty and friendship. We are so thankful for your support throughout the years.
This change, although difficult, is due to the fact that we have greater positive impact in many local communities, state-wide with our fundraising programs. Additionally, we have helped raise nearly $40 million in funds for schools and other communal groups since 1988. It is because of this mission and influence in these communities, that we are deciding to focus on the fundraising portion of our business.
As of December 27th, 2019 Foertmeyer & Sons Greenhouse purchased the greenhouse facilities and property of Schmidt Bros., Inc., and will be assuming operations at their facility on January 2nd, 2020.
Located in Swanton Ohio, Schmidt Bros., Inc. has been a successful grower in our industry for over 80 years. Their experience and growing excellence is something that we are thrilled to be partnering with. Bringing knowledge of both horticulture and marketing, we will collaborate to bring the best possible products and programs to the fundraising and wholesale markets! We are excited to continue with their staff and customer base, as well as implementing and developing our fundraising model further into Northern Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Pennsylvania.
As we continue to grow and add to our journey, we are so blessed to be in the position that we are. Without the support and loyalty of our customers, we would not be able to grow our brand into the markets that are looking for our fundraising alternative. We want to personally thank everyone involved in helping us reach our mission that we set over 30 years ago! We cannot wait to bring our top-quality plants and service to these surrounding communities; all the while helping them raise the necessary funds for their organizational goals.
