Fundraising Candy Sales

One of the most popular types of fundraisers are candy sales.

Candy fundraisers are direct sales which mean they should be be quick and easy. Each person selling for you gets a case or a few carriers of of candy bars to sell. Depending on your group size you could make 50% of the total sales or more in profit.

Candy fundraisers are particularly popular with youth sports organizations. Some leagues even require each registrant to purchase a carrier or two of candy as part of the registration fee. The family can keep the candy or sell it as a profit to recoup their registration costs.

Some of the benefits of candy fundraisers are that there is no need for a return visit with a future deliverable. All sales are concluded on the spot, which means that you?ll need fewer volunteers since all product is handed out at the kickoff meeting.

You collect your money on the spot so there is no collection issue. You simply take the money as if you were a retailer of candy and sell until you are out of candy to sell. It works well because it?s relatively easy to do and there is the immediate gratification of a quick sale. There are no orders to keep track of either.

The selling price of candy is attractive to lots of groups. They find it easy to sell candy for a dollar or two for a bar. In fact many people will purchase a few candy bars at that price. It may seem like it will take a lot of time to raise money a dollar or 2 at a time but it really adds up very quickly since you can sell to people you might not know at offices or sports fields and other locations.

One the of the downsides to candy fundraising is that you need to pay for the candy in advance.
