Our Top 5 Online Fundraisers

Top 5 online fundraisers

Only a mere 12 months ago, “online fundraiser” may have conjured a whole two images: crowdfunding platforms and Giving Tuesday campaigns. But oh what a year it’s been! These days, anything can be an online fundraiser and we love it. In fact, the verdict is in and its unanimous – online fundraisers are here to stay.

We’ve listed our top 5 online fundraisers, why we like them, and how you can add some creative twists.

Let’s get to it!

1) Popcorn: Not Your Dad’s Bedtime Snack

Popcorn brands are really upping their game with cool marketing and delicious new flavors. In fact, with stay-at-home orders firmly in place, this has been a great year for popcorn sales! If your memories of popcorn are bland and butterless, it’s time to toss those aside and check out our full-of-flavor Gourmet Popcorn.

Why We Like It:

  • Brands like Bad Monkey Popcorn and Boom Chicka Pop are helping to reinvent popcorn’s image from stale to salty, making it a fun, easy sell.
  • On the other hand, popcorn’s nostalgic! It can evoke memories of sleepovers and movies or late summer nights at the fair. There’s something special about a snack that’s been around for centuries.
  • In general, popcorn’s a healthier option to many other sugar-coated snacks so you can snack away and not feel guilty.
  • 40% profit with no start-up costs.

Creative Twist:

  • Take your popcorn fundraiser to the next level and combine it with an online movie night fundraiser! Charge admission or ask for donations and stream a movie everyone will love.

2) Cookie Dough: Not Just Another Baked Good

It’s no surprise that cookie dough is our overall most popular fundraiser. Cookies have deity status. They’re a never ending source of innovation. No matter your taste bud’s predilection, there’s a cookie to capture your affection.

With that in mind, there’s a good chance that our online $10 Cookie Dough Plus fundraiser has something you’ll love!

Why We Like It:

  • Now that we’re spending more time at home, we see our friends, family, and neighbors less. So why not bring them a plate of cookies? No matter if you’re a team, group, or school, a cookie dough fundraiser can correspond with a bigger lesson in virtues.
  • Freeze it. You don’t have to make all those cookies at once, toss that tub in the freezer and use it when you want to make oven fresh cookies.
  • Up to 55% profit and free to start.

Creative Twist:

  • Double up and sell cookie decorating kits or cookie cutters for additional dollars with your cookie dough fundraiser!

3) Candles: Not Just Another Tea Light

Out of all of our online fundraisers, our Candle Fundraisers offer the most variety. Mix and match which candles you sell, and curate a selection that will satisfy everyone. Maybe you want to sell both Quote Candles and Holiday Art Collection Candles—no problem!

Why We Like It:

  • Candles make awesome gifts! And, each candle comes with a gift box to make it as simple as possible.
  • Candles help make our homes cozy, and as we’re all staying home more there couldn’t be a better moment for a candle fundraiser!
  • All candles are made from premium natural wax, feature lead free wicks, and are hand poured in the USA.
  • Earn 50% profit with no initial start-up fees.

Creative Twists:

  • Combine it with another product to optimize your sales and uniquely brand your fundraiser. Selling both candles and cookies is a great idea for winter fundraisers, the combination of the two are cute, cozy, and popular!

4) Snacks: Not Your Grandma’s Peanuts

Here’s the thing about snacks: they can be exciting or they can be …carrot sticks. Both have their place, but people love to buy exciting delicious snacks, especially when it’s for a good cause! Our Snack Fundraiser is great because it features a variety of 20 different snacks, so there’s truly something for everyone.

Why We Like It:

  • Pack them in lunch boxes, tuck them in your purse, or eat them right out of the bag—snacks are versatile!
  • Sports team? We offer a specifically sports-themed snack fundraiser called Nuts About Sports. It’s the exact same as our Snackin’ In The USA fundraiser but geared towards teams.
  • $8 per bag, 50% profit, and free to start.

Creative Twists:

  • Once everyone’s snacks arrive, hold an online Snack & Art night! Find a volunteer to guide participants through an easy art project while enjoying your snacks on the side. Set a price or charge by donation to join the art night, and have fun snackin’ and craftin’.

5) Custom Face Masks: Not Another Disposable Mask

The more masks the better, but only if they’re reusable! Don’t worry, we’ve got you(r face) covered. Our Custom Face Mask Fundraiser will print your school, group, or team’s name and logo on washable, reusable masks so you can be safe and look cute.

Masks are only $15 each or sold in a set of 3 for $39.

Why We Like It:

  • Along with custom logos, we offer a fun selection of prints, bedazzled rhinestone options, and solid colors.
  • Selling face masks with your logo is a great way to keep up the community, team and school spirit while people continue to social distance and spend more time at home.
  • Up to 50% profit for your group!

Creative Twists:

  • Once everyone’s mask orders arrive, hold a school, group, or team Spirit Day! For a small donation, invite people to dress up in school colors and wear their new custom masks. This can happen online or in person.
