Candle fundraising does not need to be complicated and offers simplicity when choosing the right company to work with.

Everyone loves Candles. They are easy to sell and make for a great candle fundraiser! According to the National Candle Association, candles are used in 7 out of 10 homes and offer a wonderful candle fundraising opportunity you can be confident about selling. Roughly one-third of all candle sales takes place during the holiday season. Candle sales in the U.S. are estimated at roughly $2.3 billion a year. With so many people purchasing candles for their own enjoyment, and for gift-giving, candle fundraisers are an excellent choice for organizations searching for new fundraising ideas. Every year, candle fundraising sales continue to grow and we have many groups who continue to repeat our candle fundraiser year after year because they know they can count on doing very well selling candles.
Candle Fundraisers are a great fundraising idea for any time of the year. Winter holiday candle sales make up only 35% of the total candle sales in the U.S. The other 65% of total sales are classified as non-seasonal. But this 65% certainly includes many opportunities for candle fundraisers for holidays like Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, and Thanksgiving, where many also enjoy candles and consider them as a gift of choice for others.
For Fall fundraising, Candle Fundraisers are a perfect choice for promoting sales for Thanksgiving and for Christmas gift-giving. We highly recommend starting early for the best results. Beat the competition and promote your candle fundraiser for both Thanksgiving and Christmas! Years of experience has proven that the most successful fundraisers are those held earlier in the fall season. Unlike food items that are essentially made to order and require more time for processing and shipping our candle fundraising programs provide extended selling seasons. Your organization can fund raise thru Thanksgiving for Christmas Delivery. Christmas Deadline is December 10th!
For Spring Fundraising, every month is a great time to be holding a candle fundraiser. Candles are purchased in retail stores year-round and your customers will welcome the opportunity to support your fundraiser by purchasing candles for themselves and for gift-giving. A spring candle fundraiser is wonderful to promote for Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, and for spring sports, end of the school year spring fundraisers, and for raising money for summer youth programs.
Did you know? Both men and women consider candles to be an always acceptable and highly appreciated gift for a wide variety of occasions? Many of our most successful candle fundraisers have been held with Football fundraisers, Hockey fundraisers, Boy Scout fundraisers, and a host of other organizations. Additionally, customers purchasing candles, including those buying from a candle fundraiser say they view candles as an appropriate gift for the holidays (76%), as a house warming gift (74%), a hostess/dinner party gift (66%), a thank you gift (61%) and as adult birthday gifts (58%). Candle fundraising is such a perfect choice for organizations looking for new fundraising ideas. Not only do most people purchase candles they also like to buy more and replenish their candle supply season to season, year after year! Many, many of our organizations began with just trying a candle fundraiser for one time. Little did they know they would come back time and time again because their supporters ask when another candle fundraiser will be held so they can purchase more candles. When you can offer a premium quality product at an affordable price, and an item that's consumable and people want more, you've found the right fundraising idea that will assure success.
We researched to find the best candle fundraisers. We have purposely selected the best candle fundraisers to offer you premium quality, wonderful candle scents, and affordable candle fundraisers. Our candles are priced affordable at $10-$12 for the majority of our options. Affordable pricing results in successful candle fundraisers! Your supporters will be eager to purchase and support your cause. When items are over-priced your participants are easily discouraged when people say "no thank you" and do not purchase when candle fundraisers are over-priced. $10-$12 candles are easy to sell and your participants do not have to sell hundreds of candy bars or have to convince supporters to purchase $20-$30 priced candles. With our candle fundraisers, many of your supporters will purchase multiple items because they believe they are getting value for their dollar, and will be happy to support your cause.
We offer what customers are looking for. When shopping for candles, the number one factor in making a purchase is the scent, followed by color, the container, and the price. We took all those factors into consideration while doing our research. Our programs offer many choices for scents. La-Tee-Da! Fundraising offers 14 scents and also provide non-flame alternatives by including aroma beads and wax melts. With Heritage Candles, there are several brochures and you can combine two and offer more choices. For example, by combining our Earth Candles Brochure, which has 18 different candle scents, with our Home for the Holidays Brochure, which has 8 additional scents, you can now offer a variety of 24 different candle scents for your customers to shop from. Each brochure was created to offer a variety of colors, and we offer you different container styles with La-Tee-Da! as compared to Heritage Candles. For candle fundraising, the pricing and the quality can't be beaten.

No Upfront Costs Review our candle fundraisers and choose either the La-Tee-Da! Fundraising or Heritage Candles Fundraising brochures. With Heritage Candles, you can select up to two brochures to offer more variety and sales from both are combined to qualify for free shipping. We don't advise selecting both La-Tee-Da! and Heritage because each order will be processed separately and can't be combined for free shipping. Brochures are Free and we'll ship one brochure for each seller. Due to the cost of purchasing and shipping the brochures to you, we do require that you are 100% committed to doing the fundraiser and that you do not cancel.
No Minimums! No Case Requirements - Many fundraising companies require high minimums and case requirements, particularly companies who ship food products on pallets and dry ice. Candle fundraisers do not require the same restrictions and even though some candle fundraising programs still require high minimums to place an order and case requirements both La-Tee-Da! Fundraising and Heritage Candles offer programs that even small groups can participate in. Neither company requires a minimum to place an order and neither requires you to round up and order by the case. With no minimums to place a candle fundraising order or case requirements, our candle fundraising ideas are a perfect choice for a candle fundraiser. Don't worry what to do if you get a late order or realize you made an error in ordering. We can accept an order for just one candle! Naturally, there will be a small shipping fee to cover the cost if you are ordering just a couple of candles. With La-Tee-Da! Fundraising, any order less than 9 items is charged $12 shipping. With Heritage Candles, actual shipping charges will be checked and we will let you know the fee before processing an order.
Worried about breakage during shipment or student delivery? Don't be! Both companies pack each item individually in gift boxes that are designed for candles making distribution by your sellers easy. Candles are shipped in thick cardboard shipping boxes with a lot of packing materials and rarely are any candles broken. Any broken items are quickly replaced.
