If you have decided to do a candle fundraiser, you were probably drawn to it for quite a few reasons. First of all, of course the products are beautiful, and they’ll be very popular among your supporters. There’s also the benefit that these are pre-sale fundraisers, so you don’t have to put any money down upfront.
The one thing you might be concerned about, however, is dealing with the candle fundraiser forms, especially if you have a large fundraising team. There are a lot of variables there, so understandably you want to make sure ahead of time that everything is as clear and straightforward as possible with your candle fundraiser forms.
First of all, we send everything you need to get started free of charge, and that includes your beautiful candle brochures and enough order forms for every person in your team. The order forms are actually very simple to understand, and even if you’ve got some young people on your fundraising team, understanding the candle fundraiser forms won’t be difficult.
It’s a great idea to have a meeting where everyone gets together after the fundraising materials have arrived, just so you can explain to everyone how the candle fundraiser forms work. It becomes pretty self-explanatory once you’ve spent a few minutes looking at the forms, and you shouldn’t have any trouble getting people up to speed.
The most important part of candle fundraiser forms is making sure that your team members are diligent about filling them out. If they feel they’re in a hurry or they get lazy, they could leave some important information blank, thinking that they’ll fill it in later, when they get home. Multiply that by several supporters and whatever delays life throws in the way, and by the time they get around to filling the form out, they can’t remember what the information was.
So stress to your team to keep current with their candle fundraiser forms, and everything should run smoothly.
