Top Tips for Organizing a Successful Candy Fundraiser
Organizations, big or small, may engage in candy-selling for fundraising purposes. And it’s nothing to be surprised about since candies are obviously a great way to make money, especially when the group has many kind-hearted volunteers and supporters doing the work on their behalf.
If you intend to organize a candy fundraiser yourself, below are tips that can help you achieve the highest sales possible:
Have candy bar captains.
Begin by designating candy bar captains who will take care of specific areas, companies, or volunteers groups. Say, if your church is raising funds and you have five major towns covered, designate a captain every one of these towns. Their job will be to store candies, monitor and motivate the volunteers, and submits reports on a regular basis.
Offer exciting benefits.
Candy bar fundraising need to be fun, so be sure you have fun benefits in store so that your volunteer sales force will be well-motivated. ) to awards for top sellers and so on. Be creative to make things more exciting!
Encourage online selling.
If you are able to accept donations through the Internet using credit or debit cards, set up a page where you can promote your cause and your supporters can e-mail their friends, asking them to buy candy. But you must devise a way to keep track of who made every sale (say, ask the buyer how they learned about your fundraiser) so you know which seller should bring the candy to the buyer.

Scout for great table spots.

They can go to local supermarkets, shopping malls churches and the like and ask you may be permitted to set up a fundraiser spot. Then get volunteers to take charge of every spot. If you manage each table right, you can sell as much in a single afternoon as you can online for a whole month as an individual seller.
Monitor your sales staff and keep them motivated.
Keep track of what your sellers are doing by asking for weekly sales reports, and be sure to keep motivating your group by holding events, sending out e-updates, and including fun contests and prizes.
Choose your candy suppliers.
Lastly, don’t think all candies are pure delight, especially when you’re selling them. No matter how great your cause, selling poor quality candies can throw a shade on your organization’s credibility. You may even end up getting sued if your candies actually cause illness. Sounds like a remote possibility, but it can happen if you’re not careful with your candy supplier.
