Illuminate Your Cause: Top 15 Candle Fundraisers for Every Group

Warm Welcome to Candle Fundraising

Hey there, fundraising enthusiast! Ready to dive into the world of candle fundraisers? Whether you’re looking to support a school club, a youth group, or even a daycare, candle fundraisers are a fantastic way to bring in some extra cash while spreading light and warmth. Candles have a universal appeal that transcends age, gender, and personal preferences. They make perfect gifts for any occasion and are cherished by people for their ability to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. By choosing a candle fundraiser, you’re offering a desirable product and engaging in an activity that brings people together for a shared goal.


Why Candles Make Great Fundraisers

Candles are universally loved. They add a cozy ambiance to any space, make perfect gifts, and come in various scents and designs. Plus, they’re easy to sell and appeal to a broad audience, from parents at preschool events to church community members. Candles are also relatively low-cost and can be sold at a significant markup, allowing for substantial profits. Their long shelf life means there’s minimal risk of spoilage or obsolescence, unlike perishable items. The diverse range of candle types—from eco-friendly soy candles to luxurious scented varieties—suits every taste and budget.

The Classic Candle Sale

Setting Up a Traditional Candle Fundraiser

Starting a classic candle fundraiser is straightforward. Connect with a reputable supplier, decide on the range of candles to sell, and set a timeline. Distribute order forms to your high school students, cheerleading squads, or booster clubs, and let the sales begin. Ensure your team understands the importance of customer service and timely delivery. Setting up involves a few key steps: selecting a variety of candles that cater to different preferences, setting a realistic sales goal, and organizing a kickoff event to generate excitement. Encourage participants to contact family, friends, and neighbors and use social media to spread the word. Clear communication and organization are vital to keep track of orders and ensure smooth delivery.

Tips for Choosing the Best Candles

When it comes to choosing candles, variety is vital. Offer a mix of scents, sizes, and price points. Go for high-quality products with appealing packaging. Think about your audience: a gymnastics team might prefer fresh, clean scents, while a football booster club might go for more robust, earthy tones. Consider partnering with a reputable candle manufacturer known for quality and consistency. Look for candles that burn cleanly and evenly and those made from natural ingredients like soy or beeswax. Offering limited edition or seasonal scents can boost sales, as people are often drawn to unique or exclusive products.

Engaging Your Community

Involve your community by hosting a kick-off event. Perhaps a small gathering where people can smell the scents and see the candles firsthand. Use social media to showcase your products and encourage participation from your PTA & PTO and nonprofits. Community engagement is crucial for the success of your fundraiser. Host events where potential buyers can sample the candles and use these opportunities to explain the cause and how the funds will be used. Leverage local media, such as newspapers and radio stations, to spread the word. Personal stories and testimonials from previous successful fundraisers can also help build credibility and excitement.

Seasonal Candle Collections

Embracing the Seasons with Candle Fundraisers

Align your candle fundraisers with the seasons to maximize appeal. Spring-themed floral scents, summer’s tropical vibes, autumn’s pumpkin spice, and winter’s cozy pine and cinnamon – there’s a candle for every time of year. Baseball teams can capitalize on spring sales, while choir groups push winter scents. Seasonal collections create a sense of urgency and excitement, encouraging supporters to purchase candles while they’re available. You can tap into your audience’s natural buying cycles and preferences by aligning your products with the changing seasons. Each season brings opportunities and challenges, so plan accordingly to make the most of these periods.

Best Times of Year for Seasonal Candles

Plan your fundraisers around crucial selling periods. Spring and fall are prime times for candle sales, but don’t overlook the holiday season. Dance teams can boost sales leading up to Christmas, while hockey teams might find success with New Year’s themes. Understanding the best times to sell can significantly impact your fundraiser’s success. For instance, spring fundraisers can focus on fresh, floral scents that evoke the feeling of renewal. In contrast, autumn fundraisers can capitalize on the popularity of warm, spicy scents that evoke coziness. In winter, particularly the holiday season, people are actively looking for gifts, making it an ideal period for candle sales.

Marketing Your Seasonal Candle Collections

Use seasonal themes in your marketing materials. Create eye-catching flyers and social media posts highlighting the scents and the benefits of supporting your middle school or elementary fundraiser. Engaging visuals and clever captions will draw attention and drive sales. Utilize the power of storytelling to connect with potential buyers on an emotional level. Share stories about how the funds will benefit the community, and use high-quality images that capture the essence of each season. Consider creating a sense of exclusivity by offering limited-edition scents only available for a short time. This can create a buzz and encourage quicker sales.

Custom Candle Creations

Offering Personalized Candle Options

Custom candles add a unique touch to your fundraiser. Allow supporters to choose their scents, colors, and even labels. Personalized candles can commemorate events or achievements, making them a hit for Little League teams and martial arts schools. Offering personalization can significantly boost your fundraiser’s appeal. Customization options might include monogrammed labels, unique scent combinations, and the ability to choose the candle’s color or container. These personalized touches make the candles more memorable and meaningful, increasing their value and the likelihood that supporters will purchase them as gifts or keepsakes.

How Customization Can Boost Sales

Customization turns a simple candle into a cherished keepsake. It’s a great way to increase sales and appeal to a broader audience. Imagine a volleyball team’s logo on the candle or a soccer team’s colors and scent combo – these personalized touches can make all the difference. Customization can also create a deeper connection between the buyer and the cause. When people see their names, favorite colors, or personal messages on the product, they feel a stronger sense of ownership and support. This emotional connection can lead to repeat purchases and increased word-of-mouth referrals.

Creative Ideas for Custom Candle Designs

Get creative with your custom designs. Think outside the box with themes that resonate with your group. Band fundraisers could feature music note designs, while softball teams might opt for sporty labels. The possibilities are endless, and the results are rewarding. Consider collaborating with local artists or designers to create unique labels or packaging. You could also offer themed collections that reflect your group’s spirit, such as candles with inspirational quotes for church fundraisers or colorful designs for elementary school events. Creativity in design not only makes your candles stand out but also enhances the overall fundraising experience.

Eco-Friendly Candle Fundraisers

eco friendly products | Presented by Midland Fundraising
The Rise of Eco-Friendly Candles

Eco-friendly candles are becoming increasingly popular. Made from natural ingredients like soy or beeswax and packaged in recyclable materials, these candles appeal to environmentally conscious buyers. They’re perfect for fundraisers supporting nonprofits or food sustainability initiatives. As awareness of environmental issues grows, more people seek products that align with their values. Eco-friendly candles cater to this demand, offering a sustainable alternative to traditional paraffin candles. They often burn cleaner, with fewer toxins and pollutants, making them a healthier choice for the home.

Benefits of Sustainable Candle Fundraising

Choosing eco-friendly options attracts a broader audience and aligns your fundraiser with a positive cause. Promote these benefits in your marketing to resonate with high school and middle school supporters passionate about sustainability. Highlighting the environmental benefits of your candles can enhance your fundraising message and appeal. Emphasize that your candles are made from renewable resources, are biodegradable, and are packaged in eco-friendly materials. This attracts eco-conscious buyers and positions your fundraiser as a responsible and forward-thinking initiative.

Promoting Your Eco-Friendly Options

Highlight the eco-friendly aspects of your candles in all your communications. Use hashtags and keywords related to sustainability, and partner with local green businesses to boost your reach. A tennis fundraiser could gain extra traction by emphasizing their eco-friendly efforts. Social media is an excellent platform for promoting your eco-friendly candles. Use compelling visuals and informative content to educate your audience about the benefits of sustainable candles. Partner with influencers or bloggers who advocate for green living to reach a broader audience and enhance your credibility.

Candle Fundraiser Events

Hosting a Candle-Making Workshop

Take your fundraiser to the next level by hosting a candle-making workshop. This hands-on event can draw participants from school classes, groups, and clubs to church communities, offering a fun and educational experience while raising funds. Workshops provide a unique opportunity for supporters to engage with your cause meaningfully. They can learn a new skill, create candles, and leave with a tangible reminder of the event. These workshops can be tailored to different age groups and interests, making them versatile and inclusive.

Ideas for Candle-Themed Events

Think beyond the workshop. How about a candlelit dinner or a glow-in-the-dark dance? These events can attract basketball teams and youth groups, providing a memorable experience and an opportunity to sell more candles. Candle-themed events can create a magical atmosphere that draws people in. Consider hosting a romantic dinner under candlelight, a relaxing spa night featuring candlelit massages, or even a spooky Halloween event with themed candles. These unique events help sell candles and create lasting memories for participants.

How to Make Your Event a Success

To ensure your event is a hit, plan meticulously. Promote it well in advance, offer incentives for participation, and ensure you have enough supplies. Engage soccer and choir members to help spread the word and create a buzz around your event. Successful events require careful planning and execution. Set clear goals, create a detailed timeline, and assign specific tasks to team members. Use multiple channels to promote your event, including social media, email newsletters, and community bulletin boards. Providing incentives, such as early bird discounts or door prizes, can also boost attendance and participation.

Online Candle Fundraisers

online shopping | Presented by Midland Fundraisings

Setting Up an Online Candle Store

In today’s digital age, an online candle store can reach supporters far and wide. Set up a user-friendly website, showcase your products with beautiful photos, and make purchasing easy. This approach is ideal for dance teams and daycare centers looking to extend their reach. An online store allows you to cater to supporters who may not be able to attend in-person events. Ensure your website is mobile-friendly, has secure payment options, and provides detailed information about the candles and their cause. Offering special online-only promotions or discounts can also drive traffic to your store.

Leveraging Social Media for Sales

Social media is a powerful tool for promoting your online candle store. Use platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to share updates, special offers, and success stories. Encourage hockey and football team members to share posts to amplify your reach. Regularly posting engaging content can keep your audience interested and informed. Use a mix of high-quality images, videos, and interactive posts, such as polls or Q&A sessions. Collaborate with influencers or local celebrities to further boost your visibility and credibility. Hosting live demonstrations or virtual candle-making sessions can also attract more followers and potential buyers.

Tips for Maximizing Online Fundraising

Optimize your website for mobile use, offer secure payment options, and provide excellent customer service. Regular updates and engaging content will keep your gymnastics supporters returning for more, ensuring steady sales. Make the online shopping experience as seamless as possible. Offer multiple payment methods, clear return policies, and responsive customer support. Regularly update your inventory and inform supporters about new arrivals or limited-time offers. Use analytics to track your sales and identify trends, allowing you to continually adjust your strategies and improve your online presence.

Partnering with Local Businesses
community | Presented by Midland Fundraising

Collaborating with Local Candle Makers

Forge partnerships with local candle makers to add a unique touch to your fundraiser. This collaboration can bring exclusive products to your baseball or volleyball fundraiser, attracting local supporters who value community involvement. Regional partnerships can add authenticity and a personal touch to your fundraiser. Working with local artisans or small businesses can also create opportunities for joint marketing efforts, expanding your reach and building stronger community ties. Highlight the regional aspect in your promotions, emphasizing the support for small businesses and the community.

Benefits of Community Partnerships

Partnering with local businesses boosts your fundraiser’s credibility and reach. It’s a win-win situation: you get high-quality products, and the local business gains exposure. These partnerships can be especially beneficial for preschool and softball fundraisers. Community partnerships can enhance your fundraiser’s appeal by showcasing local craftsmanship and fostering a sense of regional pride. They can also provide unique products that stand out from mass-produced items. Collaborating with businesses that share your values and mission can further strengthen your fundraising message and create lasting relationships that benefit future endeavors.

Success Stories of Local Collaborations

Countless fundraiser success stories have thrived thanks to local collaborations. For example, a band partnered with a local artisan to create limited-edition candles, resulting in a sold-out fundraiser and a strong community bond. Highlighting these success stories can inspire confidence and participation from your supporters. Share testimonials from past participants and local business owners who benefited from the collaboration. Use these stories in your promotional materials to demonstrate the tangible impact of the fundraiser and the positive outcomes of supporting local businesses.

Themed Candle Fundraisers
themed events | Presented by Midland Fundraising

Fun Themes to Attract Attention

Themed candles can add an exciting twist to your fundraiser. Consider holiday, sports, or pop culture themes that resonate with your audience. A choir fundraiser with music-themed candles can capture the hearts of supporters. Themed fundraisers can create a sense of novelty and excitement that draws in supporters. Choose themes that align with your group’s interests or the time of year. For example, a volleyball team might sell beach-themed candles in the summer, while a softball team could offer springtime floral scents. Creative themes can make your candles more appealing and memorable.

Creating a Buzz with Themed Candles

Use themed candles to generate buzz and excitement. Promote them heavily through your booster club and church networks. The novelty of themed candles can drive sales and make your fundraiser stand out. Creating a buzz involves strategic marketing and engagement. Use eye-catching visuals and clever taglines to promote your themed candles—host launch events or social media countdowns to build anticipation. Collaborate with influencers or local celebrities to amplify your reach. Engaging your community through interactive activities, such as contests or giveaways, can generate excitement and increase participation.

Examples of Successful Themed Campaigns

Look at successful themed campaigns for inspiration. A tennis team might sell Wimbledon-themed candles, while a little league could go for baseball-themed scents. These targeted themes can significantly boost engagement and sales. Successful themed campaigns often involve a strong narrative or story that resonates with supporters. For example, a martial arts fundraiser might offer candles inspired by different martial arts disciplines, each with a unique scent and design. Sharing the story behind each theme and its connection to your group can create a deeper emotional connection and encourage more sales.

Incorporating Candle Subscriptions
subscription box | Presented by Midland Fundraising

How Candle Subscriptions Work

Candle subscriptions offer a recurring revenue stream. Supporters sign up to receive a new candle every month, providing ongoing support for your nonprofits or school classes, groups, and clubs. Subscription-based fundraising can provide a steady and predictable income, allowing you to plan and budget more effectively. Offer different subscription tiers, such as monthly, quarterly, or annual plans, to cater to various preferences and budgets. Ensure each delivery offers something unique or exclusive to keep subscribers excited and engaged.

Benefits of Subscription-Based Fundraising

Subscriptions provide consistent income and keep your supporters engaged over time. They’re perfect for PTA & PTO fundraisers, ensuring a steady flow of funds throughout the year. Subscriptions can also build loyal customers who feel more connected to your cause. Regular deliveries remind supporters of their contribution and inform them about your group’s progress and achievements. Offering exclusive benefits, such as first access to new scents or special discounts, can further enhance the value of the subscription and encourage long-term commitment.

Encouraging Long-Term Support

To encourage long-term support, offer subscribers exclusive scents and early access to new products. Highlight these perks in your martial arts and middle school communications to attract and retain subscribers. Building long-term support involves creating community and belonging among your subscribers. Use personalized communication, such as thank-you notes or updates about how their contributions make a difference. Engage with subscribers through social media, newsletters, and special events to keep them informed and invested in your cause. Recognizing and celebrating their support can foster a more profound sense of loyalty and commitment.

Promotional Strategies

Effective Ways to Market Your Candle Fundraiser

Effective marketing is crucial for the success of your candle fundraiser. Use a mix of online and offline tactics to reach your audience. Flyers, posters, and brochures can be distributed at cheerleading events, while digital marketing can reach a broader audience. Develop a comprehensive marketing plan that outlines your goals, target audience, and critical messages. Use visually appealing graphics and compelling copy to capture attention. Consider creating a dedicated website or landing page for your fundraiser that provides detailed information about the products, the cause, and how to support them.

Utilizing Flyers, Posters, and Brochures

Create visually appealing flyers, posters, and brochures highlighting your fundraiser’s benefits. Distribute them at elementary schools, high school events, and volleyball matches to maximize visibility. Physical marketing materials can be highly effective in reaching local supporters. Use bold colors, clear images, and concise text to make your materials stand out. Include essential information, such as ordering instructions, deadlines, and contact details. To reach a wider audience, display these materials in high-traffic areas, such as community centers, libraries, and local businesses.

Engaging Content for Social Media

Social media is a powerful tool for engagement. Post updates, photos, and testimonials regularly. Use engaging content like videos and stories to capture the attention of your youth group and nonprofit supporters. Social media allows you to connect with your audience more personally. Share behind-the-scenes content, such as candle-making processes or interviews with team members. Use hashtags and tag relevant organizations to increase visibility. Encourage supporters to share their photos and experiences with your candles, creating a sense of community and involvement.

Incentives and Rewards

Offering Prizes for Top Sellers

Incentives can motivate your team to sell more. Offer prizes for top sellers, such as gift cards or special event recognition. This strategy can be particularly effective for food and softball fundraisers. Prizes can create healthy competition and encourage participants to put in extra effort. Consider offering a range of prizes to appeal to different interests and age groups. Publicly recognizing top sellers at events or through social media can also boost morale and inspire others to increase their sales efforts.

Motivating Your Team with Rewards

Rewards can keep your team motivated and driven. Publicly recognize their efforts and celebrate their successes. This positive reinforcement can boost morale and drive sales for soccer and elementary fundraisers. Regularly acknowledge and appreciate your team members’ hard work. Use formal and informal recognition, such as certificates, shout-outs on social media, or small tokens of appreciation. Creating a supportive and encouraging environment can help maintain enthusiasm and dedication throughout the fundraising campaign.

Creative Incentive Ideas

Get creative with your incentives. Offer experiences like a behind-the-scenes tour of a local candle factory or a candle-making workshop. These unique rewards can inspire football and gymnastics teams to reach their goals. Think outside the box to come up with incentives that are both exciting and relevant to your supporters.

Our Client’s Testimonial


This will be my first time participating so I am excited about it! Everything has been seamless and so easy to get started. We can’t wait to get our fundraiser off the ground!

Breeanne P.

I have been working with Midland Fundraising for the past three years for all of the fundraisings I do at Haviland Middle
School. During that time, they have been incredibly efficient, courteous, and professional. I organize fundraisers for
two groups that have about 150 students combined. Each time I do a new fundraiser, they get me all my forms
and materials quickly and takes the time to explain what I need to do. She makes my job very easy by providing
me with step-by-step instructions and giving me tips on how to make our event successful. Always very
polite and friendly and doesn’t hesitate to send me new copies of papers that I misplace (multiple times). Although
I’ve never met her face-to-face, I feel that Mysti is a wonderful, reliable contact of mine and I’m grateful that she is
in charge of my fundraising needs.

Coach Maggie

I am writing to express my pleasure of working with Midland Fundraising. For the past two
and half years, I have used Midland for fundraising for my school soccer team. They have been so helpful and
always ready to assist from the beginning of my experiences with the company. Mysti has always been my representative
and has always been available for questions and help with orders. She is very prompt with replies to my emails and very
thorough with my questions. Mysti has helped with things such as adding tax to our orders since we are a food taxing state
(meeting district fundraising guidelines), and she always checks up on our sales and if we need anything at all. She has been
very helpful with the selection of products and followed up on all aspects from contract correctness, delivery dates and times,
delivered items, and if we will continue to use the company in the future. Mysti Oliver has been so good and helpful to me
that I have referred her to other coaches and teachers at my school to use for their fundraisers! I would recommend her to
anyone! She has made my experiences simple and painless!

Chris C.

We have had two great experiences working with Midland Fundraising.
We were a bit skeptical at first about working with a company halfway across the country,
but it has not been an issue. Mysti has worked with us closely, always working to satisfy
both our group and our customers.
The products have been of good quality, and any issues with breakage or wrong item have been
taken care of immediately. We were happy to find a company that offered items at 50% profit
in brochure format, too.


“Your company has been a pleasure to work with. After years of selling candy bars, my Environmental Council group was looking for a company that sold high-quality products that were eco-friendly. I am so glad that we found you! I am completely satisfied with the products we have ordered but more importantly, in the high standards of customer service from you. From the very first phone calls and e-mail exchanges with you – I have found you to be helpful, cheerful and so efficient. You took care of any concerns I had with a professional yet personal touch. Nowadays, many companies don’t take the time to ensure customer satisfaction; but not with you. I have always been treated respectfully, and you keep in contact with me throughout the fundraising process. I still marvel at your efficiency – especially the one and only time there was a mix-up with one of my student’s orders. You were with me every step of the way, making things right for him and his customer. I can’t praise you enough. I have dealt with many vendors over my 26years of teaching and you and your company tops all of them for customer satisfaction,courtesy, and professionalism! I have complimented you many times over the last few years for your professionalism and outstanding customer service that goes well above and beyond in every sense of the word. You have humbly and graciously accepted it but I can tell that you truly have a sense of pride and accomplishment in all that you do so you say that no ‘thanks’ are necessary. But in this economy, people can choose to go anywhere for their fundraising needs and you have kept me coming back to your company.”
