One of the best ideas for lollipop fundraising is to hold a Lollipop Friday Fundraiser.
You set up a table near the main school exits every Friday afternoon. When the kids are about to head home for the weekend you offer them different kinds of fun lollipops to take home and enjoy over the weekend.
The good thing about doing this on a regular schedule is that the kids come to expect it. Parents know that every Friday will be Lollipop Friday and that they need to send a little money with their students to school that day.
Over time the kids really come to expect the lollipop fundraiser sale and look forward to it. Since most fundraising lollipops sell for only $.50 many of the kids will buy more than one.
This is a great fundraising idea for parent organizations or schools wanting to raise a little bit of money every week throughout the school year. It is easy to administer. The products are definitely enjoyed by the kids. The price point is good and the profit even better. You will double your money every time you sell a lollipop.
These days some schools can not offer candy on the school grounds so be sure to check with your school district. Many do not mind the sale of lollipops that will not be consumed on the school campus.
A couple of other tips to remember when you hold your lollipop fundraisers:
1. Keep plenty of quarters on hand to make change for the kids.
2. Advertise your sale so the parents know about it.
3. Change up the style or shape of the lollipops you sell periodically. There are lollipops for just about every major season and holiday so keep offering new products.
