What To Look For In a Candle Fundraiser

Post Icon Posted on 11/03/2009 by Howard Gottlieb
Candle fundraisers are very popular options for groups looking for a fundraising program that is highly profitable with easy to sell products that do not need to be frozen.

They work great no matter what time of year you need to raise money because unlike some other fundraisers, like chocolate sales, you do not need to worry about your product melting. And, because candles are a consumable item that gets used up, there is almost always a need (or at least a want) to buy new candles.

But, what do you want to look for when choosing a candle fundraiser? There are a number of important factors that you will want to consider to help insure that you have a successful candle fundraising program.

The first is the price of the candles. You can find candle fundraisers with candles as cheap as $5 and as expensive as $50 but there are problems with both ends of the spectrum. People tend to understand that you get what you pay for and the $5 candles tend to be small, not smell very good, and burn quickly. Conversely, at the higher end, not many people can afford a $50 candle. You want to find a program that offers candles in the $10 to $20 range.

There is a growing movement towards items that are more environmentally conscious and that holds true even with candle fundraisers. The best wax that candles are amde from is a soy based wax. This type of wax burns longer and is organically based making it more earth friendly.

Also on the list of considerations is where the candles are made and how much care goes into their making. The very best candle fundraisers offer candles that have been hand poured in the United States. This level of care guarantees that you and your customers will be happy with the candles.
