Candy fundraising can be a great choice if you’re doing charity work for a group that involves small children and youths. Candy can get them excited and motivated to sell, it doesn’t cost much, and it requires little in the way of organizing. It just requires the idea and connecting with a company that specializes in candy fundraisers, and there are plenty of those to go around. Here are four good candy fundraising ideas:
1. Make it chocolate. There are companies both large and small out there that offer candy fundraisers. You can go with a major brand that is known for chocolate products like Hershey’s or Nestle, or there are more mom and pop type companies that you can choose from online. Either way, you can’t go wrong with the huge profit margins and appealing chocolate products out there.
2. Make your fundraiser pop. Lollipop fundraising can be another fun candy fundraiser to head up. Again, do some searching online and you’ll discover a whole world of companies that offer lollipops at a discounted rate allowing for large profits that can go directly to your charity. From themed lollipops to personalized lollipop bouquets, the possibilities are endless with this option.
3. Go for a little sweet and salty. Sweet and salty is a dangerously delicious combo, and there are some businesses that specialize in offering pre-packaged snack boxes that combine the best of both worlds and offer sweet candy goodness with salty snacks.
4. Package it in a cute way. Whether you create candy gift baskets, gift bags, or even cute candy jars, selling candy in unique packaging and in a way that makes it ‘giftable’ can be a fun way to raise money for your organization. If you plan to do this around a holiday like Halloween or Christmas, you can really rake in the dough.
