Whether you have tried selling candles for a fundraiser before or not you should consider different candle fundraising ideas that are now available.
The candle fundraising industry has changed dramatically over the past couple of years. Many companies that were successful in selling retail or even wholesale candles found they could not make money selling in the fundraising arena. There were too many hands in the profit picture and they squeezed the manufacturers to the point of exiting.
But a few smart producers found that everyone could make money selling candles. They just needed to market their candles a little differently. That is how we helped develop what are now our two best selling candle fundraising ideas:
Earth Candles: This candle line is designed to be earth-friendly from the packaging to the manufacturing process. The candles are made from soy and produced in the United States. They come with lead-free wicks too.
Each member of your group is given a fundraising brochure to sell with. They go around and pre-sell candles using the brochure and sales materials. At the end of the sale, all orders are tallied together and bulk order is placed. The sales materials do not cost anything and you can use the money collected during the pre-sale to pay for the candles.
Journey of Faith Candles: This candle line was designed for churches, youth groups, Christian schools, and other faith-based organizations. Each candle is packaged in a glass jar and labeled with a specific Bible verse and theme. The collection offers only the best selling fragrances. The quality of the candles along with the scriptural messages make this one of the best new candle fundraising ideas to come along in years.
Like Earth Candles there is no cost to get started and you can use the money you collect pre-selling to pay for your order.
So before you determine that candle fundraisers are not a good way to raise money to consider one of these two candle fundraising ideas. You might be pleasantly surprised by the results.
