Candles for a cause
Launching in Fall 2020, we at IP Candles fell in love with our way
to support local non-profit organizations through our new Candles
for a Cause fundraiser.
WHY FUNDRAISE WITH IP CANDLES?
Fundraising with IP Candles is a great way to raise money with no upfront cost to
your organization. We offer a terrific selection of candles in many fragrances.
Our candles are hand-poured in Lombard, IL and are pure and clean soy candles
infused with essential oils. We never use any fillers or additives. Our 8 oz candles
burn for 45-55 hours.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
We charge your organization our wholesale pricing per candle. Your organization can
choose what price to sell the candles at. We recommend pricing the candles at $12-14 each.
We will provide your organization with digital materials to hold your candle sale. It is up to the organization to print copies of the order form, instructions, and candle descriptions. Your group sells candles to friends and family and collects payment. The sales period is usually 7-10 business days. There is no sales tax collected. There are no upfront costs. At the end of the sales period, collect the money and order forms and tally them together. Place your bulk order with us by phone or email. Your group keeps the profit.
"Because of the Pandemic, our PTO needed to rethink how we fundraise. We decided to give the IP Candles fundraiser a shot and we were totally blown away. Our small school had about 100 families sell to their personal networks and we sold exactly 1000 candles, generating a $4,000 net profit for our PTO. Jessica made this fundraiser so easy to do and the candles were so great to give as gifts for the holidays! We already have our next year's fundraiser on the calendar!."
-- Amy Remlinger, President, St. John's School Lombard, PTO
"We absolutely loved our fundraiser with IP candles! This was a last minute addition to our Ways & Means plan and we were pleasantly surprised how easy is was to make $800 for our LJWC Philanthropic Fund. We're already excited to do it again next year!"
-- Patti Blazejak, Ways & Means Chair, Lombard Junior Women's Club
