If you’re looking for a way to run a great fundraiser featuring lollipops, a Carousel lollipop fundraiser is probably your best bet.
It makes sense for all kinds of groups at all selling levels because there’s a minimum purchase of just a single case. You don’t have to worry about having a lot of extra lollipops – just buy exactly how many cases you think you’ll realistically sell. A Carousel lollipop fundraiser is always popular, because the lollipops are inexpensive, and they come in flavors everyone enjoys.
The first thing you need to understand about the Carousel lollipop fundraiser is how the case system works.
Basically a case has eight packages inside, and each package contains 72 lollipops, for a total of 576 lollipops in a case. Most people like to purchase somewhere between two and four packages of lollipops for each member of the fundraising team. If you have a small fundraising team of eight people, for example, three cases would mean that each person is responsible for selling three packages, or 216 lollipops.
It may seem like a lot on paper, but when you get out there and start selling them at only $.50 apiece, you’ll see just how fast they sell, and you may even find yourself ordering more stock for your Carousel lollipop fundraiser at some point.
Once you have made the decision to do a Carousel lollipop fundraiser. the rest is easy. You pay for your order up front, and we do our best to ship it out to you the next business day. Once you receive your lollipops, that’s it – it’s all up to you. Distribute them among your fundraising team, and see what they can do.
You might even try running a contest with prizes for the team member who sells their packages first, just to add a little friendly competition and a sense of urgency into the fundraiser. Every little extra push helps.
