MORE IDEAS FOR CANDY FUNDRAISERS
Candy fundraisers are about as American as it gets. They're affordable and can help you reach your financial goal fast. If you’re thinking about a candy sale, be sure to mind your audience and pair it with the right seasons and holidays.
The Right Audience for Candy
Audience is the easiest part of a candy sales campaign: kids! Kids have always been and will always remain the biggest consumers of candy. This makes selling candy ideal for younger grades, like elementary school.
Try marketing it during an afterschool program when kids have split up to work on homework or play outside. Students will be eager to buy a treat as a personal reward at the end of the day. And a little sugar can help them stay focused to get their homework done.
Our $1 candy bar fundraisers are perfect for kids in need of an after school pick-me-up. Even if your audience is primarily older students, they’ll still want to buy candy. For middle or high schools, consider selling candy in the morning before school. This way everyone can plan ahead with a between class snack.
Seasons for a Candy Sale
Holidays are prime-time for candy sales. Americans spend over $2 billion each year on Halloween candy and $1.9 billion on Easter. So try to plan your fundraisers when people are consuming more candy anyways.
When buying from a student, people don't have to contend with the craziness of stores. They’ll also feel good because they're buying to support education.
Our candy programs offer an assortment of options to suit multiple holidays. Try our heart shaped lollipops for Valentine’s Day or the Yummy Star lollipops around the 4th of July. And of course you can sell our Yummy Lix® lollipops anytime. They’re our top selling flavor.
Candy Fundraising Ideas and Benefits
The best part about candy is the affordability and simplicity. Aim to fundraise during a time of day when money is accessible to kids. Whether it’s before or after school, they can borrow from a parent. In fact, after school sales might just tempt parents to buy a little sweet treat for themselves.
Another good idea for a candy sale is during carnivals or book fairs. This is when kids may have brought money with them to take part in the activities. Notices are key for events like these! You’ll want parents to remember to send a few extra dollars with their kids.
Candy fundraisers are also very "volume-friendly". It’s likely that students will buy multiple pieces, given the low price-point and high appeal. On the back end, accounting for items and payment is easy with 50¢ or $1 candy options. Candy sales are the classic and convenient idea to reach your goals.
