  • How to choose your perfect fundraiser

    Are you overwhelmed with options for your fundraiser? Or trying to find the perfect fundraiser for your group and not sure where to start?

    Customers often ask us for advice about what products will work best for their group fundraisers. They wonder if they should choose products based on the percentage of profit they make or choose based on the season or fundraising event.

    Profit Margin

    Choosing a fundraiser based on profit margin is essential when shopping for your perfect fundraising items. All of our varieties have a high profit margin compared to competitors, but you still may be wondering how the difference in profit margin between our varieties can affect your fundraiser.

    We encourage fundraisers to try varieties with higher profit percentages. (Our Monster Variety is a very popular choice.) While sellers will have $2 items instead of $1, this usually doesn’t make a difference to donors. A $1 upsell isn’t enough to turn off a donor once they are ready to help your cause.

    The $1 item difference can have a significant impact on your fundraiser and can help you make more profit and get your fundraiser done in less time.

    Consider your audience

    Customers have told us they have the best luck if they get chocolate for adults and fruity candy for kids.

    Consider whom you will be relying on most for donations. We have cases with all sorts of wonderful and popular chocolate, candy, and snacks. (Supreme Selection is very popular, and Choco Blast is popular for chocolate lovers.)


    No matter what group you are with, chances are you will not be the only one fundraising. If you cannot be the only fundraiser on a given day, there are ways that you can stand out.

    If there are other fundraisers at the same time as yours, choose a fundraising product different from what others are selling.
    Provide a variety of pricing. With no minimum order, you could sell several differently priced items to increase your sales.

    Do you have past experience?

    If you have seen something do well in the past, it’s likely it will succeed again. However, one of our recommendations is that you try $2 items if you've had luck with $1 items. You may be surprised by your results.

    Never be afraid to try a new product. Customers have used some of our more unconventional items and had excellent results.

    Some helpful Old Fashion Candy features

    No minimum order makes it easy to order a few cases of several different varieties so that you can test different kinds of candy.
    All varieties come in convenient and sturdy carrying cases.
    A word of advice: If possible, set up a display table to get the most exposure possible. Donors will find the display inviting and see the variety of candy you have.

    Our goal is to take away the stress and hours of prep time from your fundraiser. Whether you are experienced or just starting, our experts are here to answer your questions, help you select your best fundraising variety, and get your order shipped to you quickly. Call 1-800-500-1234.

  • Energize your fundraiser with a powerful message!

    Once you’ve found the right product for your fundraiser, putting thought into the message you give donors will maximize your sales.

    We have some advice on how to amp up your message so that it connects with donors. It’s essential to the success of your fundraiser that donors understand why your group is so important.

    The rules in this blog apply to both what you say verbally to donors or information you may include in a letter or email.

    Message with emotion.

    You can start your message with a fact, and then use emotion to back it up.

    You will be less likely to get action from a donor when using numbers than when telling stories about specific people. When we hear stories about people, we are much more likely to become emotionally attached.

    To demonstrate this point, picture these two examples.

    Donor A hears that every year your group sends 200 students to volleyball camp.

    Donor B hears the story of one student who always dreamed of playing collegiate volleyball, and your group sent her to a volleyball camp that gave her the training she needed and helped her earn a volleyball scholarship that year.

    Which donor do you think is more like to have an emotional connection to your group that compels them to donate?

    Remember to end your story with a clear call to action, and your listener will want to help!

    In your message, make the donor realize that your organization is not the one in need. The people that your group helps are the ones in need.

    Make donors feel important.

    You should let donors know that they are making a difference.

    Instead of talking about what your group does, think about phrases that say, “Because of you, students have the (computers, sports equipment, training, etc.) they need.”

    The right product along with the right message can make a winning fundraiser for your group. Try our Large Chocolate Bars. People love our signature chocolate recipe. Also our exclusive Monster Variety has eye-popping large sizes of top brands. The simple ideas in this blog will be beneficial, and we think they should be shared to remind fundraisers how to think about messaging. Be sure to show your team!

    We are ready to answer your fundraising questions. Give us a call at 1-800-500-1234.
