What you need to know about candy bar fundraising
Low price points and high levels of sweetness have made candy bars a popular option for fundraising for almost as long as schools, sports teams, churches and other organizations have been raising money. After all, everyone loves candy and what you don’t sell you can gobble up.
But in a time when more and more folks are paying attention to their dietary habits and saying no to sugar for themselves and their kids, maybe it’s time to start saying “no” to calorie-laden candy and other unhealthy fare that’s being sold to raise money.
Sure, it’s easy to sell a $1 candy bar and with profits of up to 50% it seems like the profits are just as easy, too. But at fifty cents profit per candy bar, that can mean selling a whole lot of candy to meet even modest goals.
Not Your Typical Fundraiser—Not Your Typical Profits
Why keep selling the same old stuff at the same old prices and ending up with the same old results? There’s a better, easier, and more profitable way to achieve success in fundraising and put more dollars in your organization’s coffers.
First, you need to begin with the right product at the right price.
Remember, you are selling to family, friends and neighbors. Most of your sales are to people you know. Why would you sell anything other than a high quality product?
With Yankee Candle Fundraising, your supporters choose from the same well-known, high-quality products they buy everyday. Plus, they can buy them for the same price they find them for in stores or online.
And you get 40% of the profits.
But percentage of profits is just a part of the story. You want to get the most bang out of your fundraiser. At the end of the day, your profit dollars are what you put in the bank, not your profit margin.
For example, you could sell 10 Yankee Candles and make $100 profit. Compare that to selling 200 candy bars to reach an equal amount of profit for your organization. Taken to the extreme, that might mean finding just 10 willing supporters versus 200 supporters to make the same amount of money.
And instead of hawking candy bars in front of the supermarket, with Yankee Candle Fundraising’s website your supporters can shop online from anywhere in the country. They can order directly and easily from the website and the profits go straight to you.
Get off the candy carousel and start making big profits the easy way…with Yankee Candle Fundraising!
