Next schedule a training session on how do use the brochures. Joe and Chris will teach you how to train your volunteers to sell candles.
Select a start day and end date for your holiday candle fundraiser event. This is perfect for a winter or holiday event. Typically it’s good to give yourself two weeks for your supporters to sell the candles.
Advertise your event on social media sites. Remember to tell your supporters why you are raising money. Give them the information they need to want to support your school or organization.

Easy Directions — Step By Step!
Here is another school fundraising idea. Make a list of all of your fans, supporters, volunteers and former donors to contact with your candle catalogs.
Simply show the Holiday Collection Fundraiser brochure to your potential donors. Allow them to pick the candle fragrances they like best.
Call payment upfront for all merchandise purchased. This way you have no money out of pocket expenses.
Afterwards, tally up all of the number of candles sold using the order sheets provided in each catalog.
Pay for your order.
Fundraising Zone will next mail your candle fundraising items to you.
When you receive delivery check the contents to make sure it matches your candle order.
Deliver your candles to your customers.
Finally, enjoy your profits.
Sell more candles For the Christmas Season
Here are a few ideas to help you sell more candles this year.
Have you sold candy, Auntie Annes or Poppin Popcorn in the past? Have you tried dough fundraising before? Take your past customer list and contact them first. Remember if they supported you in the past — they like you already!
Collect photos and videos of happy customers enjoying their new candles.
Post all of these upon social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, etc.
Talk to your candle fundraising volunteers about the prizes and items they can win using the prize incentive program.
Set a reasonable candle fundraisers goal for your group. Don’t make it too high because you may be discouraged if you don’t reach it. Yet make it high enough to get your group excited. Offer to have a pizza party if your volunteers meet the goal for candles sold.
Be open to having a sales contest to reward your top seller of your fundraising program!
Review what is working for your sales team. Then have training sessions to practice the pitch they have learned.
Remember to send cards to your donors and thank them for their donation for the candles they purchased.
Keep a good record of all of your donors. Start a newsletter and reach out to them several times a year so that you keep your name and cause in the mind.
Rinse and repeat your candle fundraiser next year!
