Popcorn Fundraisers for Youth Groups & Schools

Here in America, we consume 14 billion quarts of popcorn every year. At 43 quarts of popcorn being consumed daily per person, we all could be enjoying an average of about half a cup of popcorn every single day. Consuming the buttery, kettle corn, and chocolate flavors of our popcorn fundraising gourmet treats transports buyers to an alternate reality.  With a smorgasbord of popcorn fundraisers and flavors, these options are among our top sellers in the market.

Whether you’re interested in selling popcorn flavors only or mixing it up with other options, we have it covered. Here are a few things to consider before finally deciding on which popcorn fundraiser fits your team.

Sugar, Spice, and Everything Nice

People want more than just sweet- cheesy, spicy, buttery flavors have equal influence on happy taste buds. The popular Chicago Style Popcorn has savory cheese popcorn mixed in with caramel corn for that coveted salty-sweet combination that everyone loves. The Blazin Chicago Style includes spicy popcorn with the cheesy and caramel kernels for an added kick of flavor. Other incredible unique flavors are Mowy Wowy with macadamia nuts and real butter, Peanut, Butter, & Jelly, and Caramel Apple Corn with real apple bits and cinnamon. The Gourmet Caramel Popcorn Fundraiser offers a total of 10 delicious choices to choose from.

More than Just Popcorn

Variety is the spice of life, and there’s no shortage of it with the Gourmet Snacks Fundraiser. This one includes 4 popcorn flavors from the Gourmet $7.00 Caramel Popcorn Fundraiser, as well as alternatives like malted milk balls, butter toffee peanuts, and Taste of the Tropics trail mix with papaya, banana, coconut, and more just to name a few.

Putting the Pop in Popcorn

There are so many ways for your group to put together a successful caramel popcorn fundraiser.  But nothing works as well as utilizing online resources such as email and social media blasting. Utilizing your organization’s email list and contacts online can get the word out much faster than going door to door alone. These free promotional tools help you do just that.

  • If you don’t have one already, start a blog. Have all parents, students, faculty, and staff sign up to receive your articles in their email and update it regularly to keep them abreast of how close you are to reaching your fundraising goals.
  • Social networks like Facebook and Twitter allow you to schedule your posts for future release, so you don’t necessarily have to update every single day. Being consistent with scheduling future posts is a must though.
  • Start a YouTube channel to showcase your group’s talents and raise awareness for your fundraising cause. This not only reaches those who are in your immediate network, but alerts people all over the world to what you’re raising money for. Get the word out!

 

Popcorn fundraisers work best in the fall season. People enjoy it as a comforting snack in the cold weather seasons. Getting your team, school, and community on board with your fundraising efforts in the name of popcorn is a sure shot for reaching your goals.
