Old Fashion Candy
October 31, 2014
When selecting a fundraiser to do, we know there are many claims out there about "easy fundraising." At Old Fashion Candy, it is not just a claim it is one of our cornerstones. We've crafted, researched and refined not only our products but our business to better suit the needs of fundraising individuals and groups. We offer you fundraisers that can make you the most money as well as be a stress-free and easy going experience.
Throughout our 44 years in business, we've helped schools and groups all across the United States successfully meet or exceed their goals. We work with our customers to learn what is popular and sells the best. We do not just refine our varieties or offerings here and there; we are ALWAYS striving to give you the hottest selling items first and fast.
For our candy and snacks, we search the market to find quality products that provide a value to our customers and not some item that is inflated in price. Our selling prices are competitive and reasonable so you will not have to worry about missing sales or profit. Many of our varieties come packed into handy carrying boxes that keep the product safe and intact and are ready to pass out to your sellers. While candy remains the #1 fundraiser, we know that some groups are looking to fundraise with something different or are not able to sell food related items. Enter in our product fundraising items like candles, Donation Dots, key rings and more!
We have no minimum order on anything, and our case sizes are smaller than most competitors. Because of this you can order a single case to try a fundraiser or several to stock your entire group. No matter your quantity of sellers, we can outfit with them the items they need to meet goals. All orders ship directly from our warehouse and most within 24 hours so you can receive your order in 1-5 business days depending upon your location.
We also make paying for your fundraiser convenient and easy. We offer several payment methods including a 30 day billing so you can get your product and pay us later.
Let us prove to you how we offer the easiest fundraisers on the market. Our valued customers can attest to our quality of product and service:
Katrina V: "I ordered small at first to try the quality of the product, its ability to sell and if I could trust the company's claims in their marketing/advertising. This is the most honest program I have seen and used. You order and pay. They ship fast. You sell. Done. Love it. ORDERING AGAIN NOW THAT I KNOW IT IS SAFE TO DO SO! People are buying a product they like and can afford 'on the spot' and know they are supporting a cause because it gives them a feeling of giving while they are receiving."
Rebecca O: "No one at my school was using Old Fashion Candy, and my yearbook club wanted to do something that no one else was doing. Our first fundraiser sold out within a week, and everyone was asking where and how we got this new product. I told them about the catalog I received in the mail and how easy it was to use. Now, it seems like most of the clubs on campus are using OFC for their school fundraisers."

Successful fundraisers do not just come in the form of candy or snacks. Sometimes your fundraising situation may call for a food alternative fundraiser or you need to stand out from the crowd with something different. That is where our product fundraisers come into play.
If you are working with a high school, class of fundraisers are just up your alley! We offer Class of lanyards as well as silver or gold key rings in years from 2015 through 2018 to cover all current graduating classes. Each year is sold individually, so you can focus on the current graduating class or because we offer no minimum order, get a case of each year to cover them all. Both the lanyards and key rings are at 50% profit to you.
If you like the idea of key ring fundraisers, but want something less school oriented, try out our sports key rings. We have four popular sports team logos made out of a flexible plastic. Sports key rings are also 50% to you.
Two of our standout product fundraisers are our Celestial Candles and Excite Your Snacktime brochure fundraisers. Both brochures are completely free to order, and you only pay for the product you sell to customers. We offer premium items in each brochure, and they bring you 50% profit. You can find out more about our brochure fundraisers in last week's blog post.
Bring in that cash on the spot with our Donation Dots® cards! Simply have customers scratch off a dot on the card to reveal a donation amount. Our Donation Dots® cards coordinate with your group and come in 4 designs including an all occasion card that will work with any fundraiser. You cannot go wrong with this product fundraiser because these cards are worth a whopping 87% profit to you!
A new and bright fundraising idea is our new LED pocket flashlights. Each case comes with flashlights in four colors and is a great size to fit in a backpack or purse. All flashlights have a push button on/off switch and handy carry strap. Flashlights will bring you 50% profit.
All items above are listed under the "More Ideas" section of our website. If you have any questions or would like to get started with a product fundraiser, please give us a call at 1-800-500-1234.

If you are looking for an alternative to the normal snack and candy fundraiser or want a standout premium fundraiser, then our brochure fundraisers are the way to go. We have two superior brochure fundraisers: Excite Your Snacktime and Celestial Candles. Both brochures are order taking fundraisers filled with premium quality products for your customers.
This brochure contains all kinds of snack favorites as well as some new additions you and your customers will want to try. Choose from six pages filled with a variety of chocolates, nuts, gummies and more. All items sell for $7.00 each, making selling easy.
A candle brochure that has it all, premium glass candles, sand diffusers, wax melts with warmer and wooden wick candles. All your favorite fall and holiday scents to fill a home or office with and enjoy.
One of the standout features of our brochure fundraisers is that they cost nothing to get started. The brochures are completely free! Simply place your order online or via phone for how many you need (1 per seller) and we send them to you. You only pay for the products you sell, so you do not have to worry about any upfront costs. Plus, if your sellers collect money when they make their sales (which we cover further down in the post), then you will have your profit immediately in hand.
The second standout of doing a brochure fundraiser is that every item brings you 50% profit. Both brochures carry premium items and, for that reason, you can charge more for those items. In turn, that brings you a much larger profit.
Both brochures have a handy columned order form on the back side. This will help keep each seller's order separate and organized for when they have to deliver the products back to their customers. Totaling is made easy on the brochure too. Once you've received all of your sellers' forms, simply total all the forms to order the appropriate amount of each item and place your order at once. You only pay for the items you sell.
When your order arrives to you, allow a few hours to separate out the product by seller. If you have your sellers on hand, you may want to have them separate out their individual orders by person and label them for even easier delivery. Notifying parents ahead of time of product delivery dates may be helpful as sellers may need assistance in transporting all of their sold products.
For both brochures, the deadline for Christmas orders is Friday, November 21, 2014. The end of year deadline is April 4, 2015.
Collecting money for brochure fundraisers can be done in two ways. The first, and most preferred, method is for the seller to collect the money at the time the order is placed. This will ensure that the customer will not forget or back out of their order, leaving you with a product you must purchase. If you collect all the money up front, when you place your product order with Old Fashion Candy, you will have all the money in hand you need to purchase as well as your profit money.
The second method is to collect money from customers upon delivery of their items. If you choose to do this method, you may want to have your sellers remind their customers of delivery dates so they can collect their money accordingly. Do be wary that some customers may have forgotten they placed an order or are no longer interested and possibly decline to pay, leaving you with the product and out of pocket cost.
