Candle Fundraising Ideas - Why Offer Candles on Your Next Elementary School Fundraiser?

So, you're hosting a fundraiser and are online looking for school fundraising ideas.  You may run across a candle fundraiser or a chocolate fundraiser or even a magazine fundraiser.  But did you know that these fundraisers can be combined right into one school fundraiser?

Most large elementary schools already know that a fundraising gift catalog offers hundreds of items in various categories including gifts, jewelry, chocolates, candles and magazines but there are still a lot of folks out there that don't realize more product offerings are better than just one.  

Even candle companies put other items into their catalogs such as gift items.  The reason is simple... variety is the spice of life!

So, while candles may be popular, they are also limiting to people who don't want to purchase a candle through an elementary school fundraiser.  By offering a gift and wrap fundraising catalog, buyers have a wider range of types of products to purchase.

Hey, so the next time your looking for elementary school fundraising ideas, look for something that includes more than just one category type.  If you need proof, just compare fundraising companies based on their average per student sale and participation rates... you'll see what I mean. Sales with more than one category perform better.
You can thank me later for the suggestion :)
