Lollipop Fundraisers - Learn How to Raise the Most Money
Written by Howard Gottlieb
There's been a common trend throughout fundraising over the past few years. The prices for products continues to increase and the size of the product decreases.
Fundraising lollipops, however, are the exception to the rule. They are still one of the most affordable fundraising items available.
What Are the Most Popular Lollipop Fundraisers Right Now?
1. Yummy Licks
Yummy Licks are our #1 lollipop. They come in an assortment of all your favorite flavors. Yummy Licks Round lollipops are packaged in cases of 640 lollipops. Inside the case are 8 packages with each package containing 80 lollipops. You will make 50% profit selling just one case. Shipping is FREE.
Color Blasters are a fun candy. These swirl lollipops look like a tie-dyed shirt. All of the different flavors are thrown together and you get a unique mixture of color and flavors. Since no two lollipops are exactly the same you get to offer new fresh products each time someone buys one.
Shockwave Sour Pops are one of our top elementary school lollipop fundraisers. Both kids and adults love sour candy. These are the original sour lollipops
Lollipops are perfect for fundraising. Kids love them. Adults enjoy them. You double your money on every lollipop you sell. There's only a 1 case minimum order and shipping is always FREE.
So what else do you need to know?
Below we will discuss packaging, minimums, shipping, shapes, sizes and more. By the time you've read this page you'll know everything necessary to start and run a successful lollipop fundraiser from start to finish.
#1 How Do You Choose the Best Lollipops?
Lollipops are unique in that there are lots of choices though really you just need to choose a shape and flavor selection. For the most part most lollipops are confectionary, are approximately 1 ounce and sell for $.50 each.
We offer more than a dozen different shapes and types of lollipops. They all sell well.
But if you are looking for the best seller then go directly to Yummy Licks. They have been the top seller for years and years. They are 1 oz round confection lollipops that come in pre done assortments that include dozens of different flavors. They are good for any group any time of the year.
From there you can choose from different shapes depending on the time of year and the type of group you have. There are Christmas shapes and Valentine's Day shapes. There are sports lollipops and other gourmet flavors.
Choosing the best for your group is a matter of taste. Since there's only a 1 case minimum we suggest you try a case of any suckers that look interesting and try it. If it doesn't sell as well as you'd hoped you only have 1 case to sell before trying something different.
#2 Is Their Shipping Free? Our's Is!!
Did you know that a case of lollipops weight around 40 pounds? Well they do. So be sure that you are not going to be charged for shipping.
The cost of shipping is included in the prices we charge for a case of lollipops. So when we tell you shipping is FREE we mean shipping is free to any address in the 48 continental United States.
Some people are skeptical of free shipping offers and feel like there are gimmicks somewhere. We want to assure you Easy Fundraising Ideas pays 100% of the shipping costs. You pay only for your lollipops. Period.
#3 Lollipop Packaging
Lollipops are also sold by the case. Most come with 640 lollipops per case divided into 8 bags containing 80 pieces.
Some lollipops like our Shockwaves Sour Lollipops are packaged in smaller carriers like the one shown above. When you purchase a case of Shockwaves you get 4 carriers that are put into one larger case.
Some other lollipops are packaged in bags that are then placed in a larged case to be shipped.
The important thing to remember is that you purchase lollipops by the case. You can not mix and match shapes and flavors within one case but you can buy one case of one shape and another case of a different shape.
#4 What's the Minimum Order?
There is only a 1 case minimum on all of lollipops regardless of the case quantity.
That's one of the best things about lollipop fundraisers. You can buy one case, see how it sells and decide if you want to buy more. Once you know what sells you can always purchase more.
#5 How Much do the Lollipops Sell For?
All of our confection lollipops currently sell for $.50 each. The chocolate lollipops sell for a dollar. The low retail price is one of the most attractive things about fundraising lollipops.
How much does it cost to get started?
Lollipop fundraisers work the same as candy sales do. It is a direct sale item that you purchase and then sell. That means you need to have the money to buy lollipops. You can charge your order or we can send an invoice and you can mail us a check or money order. But payment arrangements need to be made before we can ship your order.
If your group has no money to spend then lollipop fundraising might not be for you. You might look at our no upfront money options.
The only type of group that we don't require upfront payment from are public schools that issue public school purchase orders. Public schools can get 30 day terms with purchase orders.
Your cost to get started depends on which product you choose and how many cases you purchase. The cost for a single case ranges from $144 to $160 per case.
Why should I buy from Easy Fundraising Ideas?
We offer a low price guarantee on all of our lollipop fundraisers. If you find the exact same lollipops that are shipped directly to your door at no cost for a lower price we will match that offer. We want you to know you are getting the best deal right here.
We want to be the most transparent fundraising company on the internet. There are no hidden costs and there are no ridiculous claims of 100% profit or more. We help thousands of groups every year and would be honored to help with your lollipop fundraiser.

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
