A direct candy fundraiser involves taking possession of the product and selling directly to the customer. America's Favorite Fund Raising Products Company can assist you in determining how much to order of each candy product for each seller.
How Candy Fundraising Works
Your group chooses its favorite candy to sell. And if you are going to sell candy, variety packs are usually one of the most popular options - there are a wide range of candyvariety packs to choose from for your Candy Fundraiser. Your organization determines how much candy your group can sell by the number of fundraiser sales people that are participating and the average age of the group. That will give you a good idea of how muchfundraisingcandy you will need to buy. The type of candy fundraising items
you select should be determined by the kind of audience you are selling
to. As an example, high schools tend to sell one type ofcandy
and elementary schools are more successful with another. Feel free to
call us for suggestions. Or talk it over with your group. Once you make
that decision, look at the price list to find out your cost per master

Candy Fundraising Posters
Place posters in your church, school, grocery store, area shops,
meeting places and public buildings. Tell about your Fund Raiser. Once
again, be sure to get permission to put up any poster or flyer. Your Candy Fundraising
poster could be on a bright colored paper and should include:
Description(s) or even pictures of the product(s) you're selling, the
name of your organization or, if available, pictures of the group or a
group activity, and details about what you're raising money for, the
price, when the fundraising candy
will be available, the phone number for where or how to order and the
name of the person to contact for more information. If there is an
individual involve in your Candy Fundraiser
with art ability, or an art club or class available, ask for this to
become their project, too! It is a great opportunity to try some Candy Fundraising marketing techniques.
Candy Fundraising Flyers
Hand out smaller versions of the Candy Fundraising
poster, in the form of a flyer to all of your organization's
supporters. Your flyer should include the same information as your
poster but may be more along the lines of a letter sized sheet to hand
out and one that could be done inexpensively on a copier. This would be
more cost effective for when larger quantities will be needed.
Candy Fundraising News Releases
Your local news media (Newspaper, Radio & Television) might help you spread the word about your Candy Fund Raising Project.
Provide complete information in the form of a news release. A News
Release acts as a letter requesting interest and providing background
and information about your project. You may want to detail more about
how the Candy Fundraising
funds will benefit your organization. Mark the news release or letter
"FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE" to insure a timely response. Include a copy of
your Fundraising poster or flyer. Any related photos may encourage media interest in featuring you in a printed article.
