Reporting

At Random Acts of Flowers, we strive to be financially accountable to our donors, sponsors and partners, and to the communities we serve. We take pride in delivering beautiful floral arrangements that on average would carry a retail value of $52 — at a cost of only $17 per bouquet.

Financial Donations

We are grateful for the contributions from our exclusive national partners, as well as the florists, funeral homes, grocery stores, health care facilities and other companies we work with. Regardless the size, every contribution helps our organization carry out its mission.

Material Donations

In addition to our financial contributions, Random Acts of Flowers also receives various in-kind donations. Of course, the primary material donations come in the form of the hundreds of thousands of flowers that are repurposed into thousands of bouquets delivered to hospitals, assisted living, nursing homes, memory care facilities and hospices around the country every year. As thoughtful stewards of our finances, we also secure in-kind professional services and proactively negotiate discounts for tools and workspace materials.

2017 In Review

With the addition of RAF Indianapolis and a move to the Perennial Society model in Chicago and Knoxville, we have seen a rapid increase in deliveries nationwide. In October 2017, we reached our 250,000th delivery milestone and – by the end of the year – had far surpassed our 2016 totals.
