Have you considered holding a Candle Fundraiser?
If you haven’t researched candle fundraising let me give you some facts that will help you decide if a candle fundraiser is right for you or your group.
Candle fundraisers are really good for any group. They are especially good for groups that sell to friends and family because most people burn candles from time to time in both their homes and offices. When you have a product used by so many people it really opens up a huge potential market.
Candle fundraisers are like cookie dough fundraisers in that there is no cost to start a candle fundraiser. Each member of your group is given a brochure showing the candles being sold. People shop through the brochure and order candles. Your sellers should collect payment at the time of the sale. At the end of the sale, you tally together all of the orders and the money.
You will have collected the retail price of the candles. If you chose to accept checks those checks should have been payable to your group so you should have a lot more money than the amount you will pay to purchase the candles. The extra money is your profit. As you can see you will have your profit before you even place your candle order.
The great thing about a candle fundraiser is that you will know how much money you will make on every candle you sell. We offer a 50% profit on every single candle sale. The only additional cost would be for shipping if you sell fewer than 150 candles. Even then your shipping cost is capped at $65.
All of your candle fundraiser brochures and marketing materials are provided free of charge so there is no cost to get started which means there is really no risk whatsoever.
As you can see. A candle fundraiser might be perfect for your group.
