Order and Delivery
Order Online on your Schwan’s Cares campaign page, or by phone via toll free number 1-855-870-7208 (Option 2). Existing Schwan’s customers on a designated delivery route must also order either online or over the phone to contribute to a fundraiser. Products are delivered directly to the home of each supporter during the time specified at checkout. You may change payment at the door to a preferred method of payment (Check, Cash, EBT, or Credit and Debit Card are accepted). If you are not home during the time of delivery, we will leave your items in a protected freezer bag.

Beneficiary Payout
Your organization will receive one check after your active period, which is processed 20 days after the last day of your active period (30-45 days). Your beneficiary will then receive a check every quarter during your annuity period. All payout checks are sent to the beneficiary address you provide during campaign creation.
