Relay for Life Fundraisers - Learn How to Raise the Most Money

Relay for Life is a great way to show your support and contribute to the American Cancer Society. If you are not sure what to do, one of the best ways to contribute is to hold a Relay for Life fundraiser.

Relay for Life Fundraiser

Having a Relay for Life fundraising event will allow you and your group to raise money that will be donated to the American Cancer Society to help find cures for the disease of cancer.

There are many different Relay for Life fundraising ideas. Whether you are a single person wanting to raise money or a part of group or team there is a fundraiser for you.

Here are 5 different Relay for Life Fundraising Ideas to Consider:

5 Relay for Life Fundraisers

#1 Flower Bulb Fundraiser

Selling flowers and bulbs is the perfect fundraiser for every type of group. Here is how it works:

Easy Fundraising Ideas will send you full color brochures with outstanding photographs and descriptions of 24 different fundraising flowers and bulbs to sell to your supporters. The brochure includes a detailed order form with prices, planting instructions and other pertinent information.

Flower Bulb Fundraiser

Your members show the brochure to family and friends and ask them to purchase their favorite bulbs to support your group. You collect your money at the time of the sale. We suggest your sale lasts for two weeks. At the end of the sale order forms are all collected and you place a bulk order for the bulbs you have sold. You can use the money you have collected from the pre sale to pay for your purchase, eliminating the need for any upfront money.

Your group will make 50% profit on all the bulbs you sell. If your group sells more than 150 packages of bulbs we will pay for all shipping costs. On orders of 150 units or less we charge a $65 shipping fee. Take a look at just a few of the benefits YOU get when you use our fundraising catalogs!

# 2 Pizza Discount Cards

Pizza Fundraising Cards have been our top fundraising product for years. Now we have made our Buy One Get One Free Pizza discount cards available to be purchased directly online. Best of all you can choose one of the thousands of stores we have contracts with already or sign up your own store.

The holder of card can use the pizza card up to 20 times prior to the expiration date.

Pizza Card Fundraiser

This may be the most profitable fundraiser around. People search for pizza coupons online or search newspapers for Pizza Hut coupons all the time. In fact people try to find coupons to any pizzeria they frequent. Why not offer them a card with a Buy One Get One Free Pizza coupon they can use up to 20 times at your favorite local pizzeria?

Depending on the number of pizza cards you purchase, your group can make more than 90% profit! Your group sells the cards for $10 each. Your supporter gets up to 20 free pizzas worth up to $200 or more. Your local pizza establishment gets new loyal customers. Everyone wins! It is like having 20 pizza coupons on one card.

#3 Candle Fundraisers

Earth Candles are our best selling candles. They offer a great selection of highly fragrant, long burning, lead free wicked candles that are competitively priced and attractively packaged. It offers everything you need in a candle fundraiser.

Earth Candle Fundraiser

Earth Candle Fundraisers are a great way to offer your customers earth friendly candles made in the USA. This is one of the most exciting candle programs we have ever offered.

You will find a great selection of candle scents and styles. Best of all, your group makes 50% profit on every candle it sells with no money upfront!

You will receive a full color, four-page brochure for every member of your group. They will take that brochure around to all their friends and family and take orders for candles. We strongly suggest that they collect money at that time. Historically the most successful candle fundraising campaigns last for two weeks.

4. Lollipop Fundraiser

Yummy Licks Round Fundraising Lollipops are our top-selling lollipop. They are a great way for Relay for Life groups to raise money.

I loved this fundraiser. It was easy and convenient. They gave me no problems when I needed to change the end date of my fundraiser. The melts smell great. They send you order forms and money collect envelopes. I placed the order on Tuesday and received it on a Friday. I highly recommend this company

Review Posted by: Neosho Middle School - (February 17 2014)

Kari, Thank you so much for the quick shipping of our suckers. I just wanted you to know we sold out of our suckers in only two days! The students had a blast and I would do it again. We will be keeping your company in mind the next time we have a fundraiser. The only thing I can think of that would have made the sale easier is to have all of the same flavor suckers packaged together rather than mixed flavors in a bag. Sincerely, Deborah
