Holding Your Own Candle Fundraiser

Nov 29, 2007
Only a few people are interested in launching a candle fundraiser because few people know how to make candles. Candle making does not require a lot of money because the materials are not costly.

If you wish to set up your own candle fundraiser activity, you will need some people to help you with the candle making. If you can find people or students who can volunteer to make candles for free, it would help the bottom line. Keep in mind that you are holding a fundraiser activity and hiring workers to be paid will eat up all the profits. How can you earn when you have a lot of expenses? You need to understand that what you gain from candle selling is not that much. Think of the money you can save if you did not hire workers.

Ask for volunteers as they are more likely to be interested and are the ones who can help you meet the success of the activity. Let them feel that making candles for a purpose lightens the burden.

If you want to get started with your candle fundraiser, think of your purpose. It may be a fundraising for a charity or fundraising for the improvement of your church. You should know your purpose so that you will know how much money you would like to raise. Estimate the profit you will need to make so you can estimate how many candles you will need to make for the event.

Make sure that your volunteers are well instructed and that they know what they are doing. Encourage them to use their creative ideas to bring out the best in them. Let them know that it is not just about candle making but making candles with style that the people will love and appreciate and most importantly, want to buy!

Of course in any fundraising or business, you need to have enough money to start so that things run smoothly. You can set up an estimate cost by considering the type of candles you wish to make, whether you want candles made out of bees wax or paraffin candles. The production costs of paraffin candles is lower that that of bees wax. If you don't have a very big budget, then paraffin candles are your best bet.

If you don't have enough knowledge on how to start a simple candle fundraiser, you can ask people who have done one already. Make sure that you know how to handle the profits wisely and minimize spending. You will see that your fundraising activity is successful.
