Candy Fundraiser: Is a candy fundraiser the best choice for a fundraiser?
If you are thinking of doing a Candy Fundraiser, read this article. A candy fundraiser is an easy fundraiser to do. You secure the candy either by buying it in bulk yourself from a big box store or through a company. Then, your members sell the candy to friends, family and neighbors. The benefits of a candy fundraiser are: it is easy to do, people don’t have to spend a lot to purchase a candy bar from your group members, and people like candy. However, it seems in recent years that the candy fundraiser has fallen out of favor.
Here are some reasons the candy fundraiser has lost popularity. People have become more health conscious or want the sweet and junk food calories that they have to be things that they really love and crave rather than generic fundraising chocolate or candy. Because candy is so cheap, your group has to sell A LOT of candy to make a decent profit. The candy is often perishable and prone to melting so during certain parts of the year – it is harder to store or the candy can melt and become unsellable. You can still consider a candy fundraiser if you think people in your area will respond well to it but you may want to consider some other easy fundraising ideas.
Instead of a candy fundraiser, consider another more original food fundraiser with Auntie Anne’s Pretzels. ABC Fundraising® is excited to offer this delicious product. A pretzel fundraiser is an excellent fundraiser to do year round. It is easy – you can get started immediately by printing out the pretzel order forms directly from your home printer. It’s more than just pretzels. As much as you may love delicious Auntie Anne’s pretzels, your supporters will love that they can get breadsticks, pizza rolls, and kits to make cinnamon rolls or pretzels just like Auntie Anne’s in their own kitchens. A pretzel fundraiser is more exciting than a candy fundraiser and definitely more profitable too.
Instead of a candy fundraiser, why not save your supporters money with a discount card fundraiser. Discount card fundraisers have become really popular lately as they are a great way for you to offer something of value to your supporters that will save them money for a whole year. ABC Fundraising has taken the work out of it. It’s even easier than a candy fundraiser now. All you have to do is print and fill out the merchant wish list and ABC will secure the merchants for your card for you! When your custom discount cards arrive, you sell them to friends, family, neighbors and community members. Check out the Profit booster program that ABC is currently offering to make your discount card fundraiser even more profitable.
Whether you choose a candy fundraiser, a pretzel fundraiser, scratch card fundraiser or a car wash, make sure to set a timeline, get your group motivated and encourage each group member to raise as much money as they can so your group can reach the fundraising goals that you set.
