Candy Fundraising

Candy fundraisers are about as American as it gets. They’re simple, easy, and efficient and will definitely help you reach your fundraising goal if executed properly. A few things to keep in mind if you’ve decided on a candy fundraiser: mind your audience, pair it with the right seasons and holidays, and keep it easy and affordable.

Candy Fundraiser Audience

Audience is the easiest part of candy fundraisers: kids! Kids have always been and will always remain the biggest consumers of candy. This makes candy fundraisers ideal for younger grades, like elementary school. Try running a candy fundraiser during an after school program when kids have split up to work on homework or play outside. Students will be eager to purchase 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 bars are perfect for kids in need of an after school pick-me-up. Even if your audience is primarily older students, they will still love a candy fundraiser. For middle or high schools that have earlier start times, consider selling your candy in the morning before school so everyone can plan ahead with a snack for between classes.

Seasons for Candy Fundraisers

Holidays are primetime for candy sales. Americans spend $2 billion annually on Halloween candy and $1.9 billion on Easter, so try to orbit your fundraisers around big holidays like these when people are already planning on consuming more candy anyways. When customers purchase from a student candy fundraiser, they can make their candy purchases conveniently without contending with the craziness of stores. They’ll also feel good, because their purchase will be supporting education. Our candy fundraising programs programs offer an assortment of candy options to suit multiple holidays, like heart shaped lollipops for Valentine’s Day or the Yummy Star lollipops around the 4th of July.

Candy Fundraiser Ideas and Benefits

The best part of candy fundraisers is the affordability and simplicity. Aim to fundraise during a time of day when money is accessible to kids, whether it’s around lunchtime or after school when 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 candy fundraising sales is during carnivals or book fairs, when kids may have brought money with them to participate in the activities. Notice is 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 backend, accounting for items and payment is easy with $1 candy options. Candy fundraisers are the classic and convenient idea to reach your fundraising goals.

Some candy fundraisers can be paired with an outstanding price program that rewards students in the form of cash, clothes or toys and gadgets. Candy fundraising is even sweeter when students see exciting prizes in their future.
