candle fundraiser for schools

Here are a few ideas to help you sell more candles this year.
  • Have you sold candy in the past? Take your past customer list and contact them first. Remember if they supported you in the past — they like you already!
  • Collect photos and videos of happy customers enjoying their new candles.
  • Post all of these upon social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, etc.
  • Talk to your candle fundraising volunteers about the prizes and items they can win using the prize incentive program.
  • Set a reasonable candle fundraisers goal for your group. Don’t make it too high because you may be discouraged if you don’t reach it. Yet make it high enough to get your group excited. Offer to have a pizza party if your volunteers meet the goal for candles sold.
  • Be open to having a sales contest to reward your top seller of your fundraising program!
  • Review what is working for your sales team. Then have training sessions to practice the pitch they have learned.
  • Remember to send cards to your donors and thank them for their donation for the candles they purchased.
  • Keep a good record of all of your donors. Start a newsletter and reach out to them several times a year so that you keep your name and cause in the mind.
  • Rinse and repeat your candle fundraiser next year!
