Looking for Fundraisers for Small Groups? Let’s explore some options along with the pros and cons of each.

1. Lollipop Fundraising: Fundraising lollipops are great fundraising products for any sized group needing to raise a small to moderate amount of money. By that I mean someone needing to raise $500 or less. The reason lollipop fundraisers are great Fundraisers for Small Groups is the small minimum order requirement.

You can purchase lollipops one case at a time. A case typically costs around $150 each and you double your money on every lollipop you sell. There are lollipops in seasonal shapes that make selling extremely easy. For those reasons we consider lollipops one of the best Fundraisers for Small Groups.

2. Scratch Card Fundraisers: Scratch card fundraisers are especially good for small motivated groups. Each member of your group is given a card that has 50 concealed dots. Under the dots are amounts of money ranging from $.50 to $3. You ask people to scratch 2 or more dots and donate the revealed amount of money. When all 50 dots are scratched off you will have raised $100. You are given coupon sheets as thank you gifts for donors.

You can purchase as little as 1 card at a time. Prices are dependent on volume however. The more cards you purchase the lower your price. The good news, though, is that you would make 70% profit purchasing even 1 card. This is a perfect fundraiser for groups that need to raise around $100 per member.

That means any group can try this fundraiser. There is no minimum order requirement. There is typically a shipping charge for smaller orders so ideally a group would want to sell 150 or more candles but it is not a requirement for the fundraiser.

There are lots of different candle fundraisers that are designed for different markets. There are all natural candles for earth friendly fundraising. There are faith based candle for church fundraisers for example.
