What you need to know about candle fundraising:
Candle fundraising is one of the most popular ways for groups to raise money. So many people enjoy candles in their home and office which means you have a natural market for these products.
Candles can add color, ambience and warmth to any room or office. They also make great gift items. Just think of all the occasions when candles can be the perfect gift. Think about holding your sale to coincide with Christmas, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day. To increase sales make sure you tell potential customers that candles make perfect birthday gifts as well. Can you see the sales opportunities?
How does a candle fundraiser work?
Candle fundraisers fit into a category called brochure or catalog sales. Basically that means that we provide a full color brochure, order form and cash collection envelope for each member of your group. They use those materials to sell candles with.
Your members show the brochures to friends, family and others and ask them to purchase candles. They'll take orders and collect payment. We suggest they sell for around 2 weeks.
At the end of your sale you collect everyone's order forms and tally both your orders and money together and you are ready to place your order.
You are not buying anything to start your sale. You only buy the candles that were already sold so there's no excess inventory risk or need to lay out any money.
How much does it cost to get started:
There is absolutely no upfront cost to get started. We will provide everything you need to start your fundraiser including brochures, order forms and cash collection envelopes. You don't even pay to have those materials shipped to you.
Your cost comes at the end of your sale when you order the candles you've sold. By then you will have collected the retail price of the candles and you can use part of that money to pay for your order. So there's no upfront cost and therefore no risk to try a candle sale.
Low Price Guarantee
We offer a low price guarantee on all of our candle fundraisers. Not only do we offer the best candle fundraising ideas we also insure that you are making the most money possible with our guarantee. If you find the identical candles available for a lower price we will match the lower offer.
There is no cost to start our candle fundraisers. You will make 50% profit on each and every item you sell. Take a look at the great candles on this page, choose your favorite and get started today.
Minimums, Packaging and Shipping
There is actually no minimum order on any of our candle lines. If you sell only one candle we will ship you one candle.
Although there is no real minimum we charge a shipping and handling fee of $65 if you sell less than 150 candles. Once you've sold 150 items we pay 100% of the cost of shipping. Obviously it pays to make sure you can sell 150 items or more to maximize your results.
Three of the candle lines offer candles in glass jars. The jars are packaged in individual boxes which are then placed in larger heavy cardboard boxes for shipping. Be aware that candles are heavy and fragile.
Our newest addition to our candle line is called Magic Melts. Those are wickless wax fragrance bars that you melt in candle warmers. The best known manufacturer of a similar product is Scentsy.
When you're ready to get started:
We offer 4 different candle lines. Earth Candles are the most popular because of the depth of the line. We offer Journey of Faith candles for church and Christian groups. Our newest glass jar candle is called Quote Candles. They have secular inspirational themes on the labels so they have broad appeal. And finally we have a brand new line of wickless wax fragrance bars called Magic Melts.
You'll find much more detail on each product page so we won't review all of those details here. But they all work the same.
When you're ready to get started you simply go to the product page and click on the Get Started button. We will ask for some basic information about your group and contact info. We'll ask how many brochures you'll need and when you want to get started. And that's it. We will send all your materials out within a day or two. When you get your brochures you are ready to go.
