With all of the different fundraisers out there, it’s important to understand what each one has to offer in order to decide on the one best suited for you. For now, we will focus on one of the many fundraising opportunities out there by answering a simple question: What is popcorn fundraising?
Popcorn Fundraising is a simple yet popular and profitable way for organizations to raise money. Some of the more common groups who sell popcorn as a fundraiser include schools, sports teams, dance studios, gym studios, and 4-H clubs. When an organization does popcorn fundraising, they sell bags of popcorn for an average of two weeks while earning a profit on each sale. When working with Pop Fund for example, you will have 15 delicious and Popular flavors to sell during your fundraiser, making it a fundraiser favorable for nearly everyone.
Unlike many other fundraisers with low-profit splits, popcorn fundraisers offer high-profit margins that allow your organization to raise large amounts of money in a short period of time. Doing this type of fundraiser also gives you a competitive edge due to the fact that everyone loves delicious popcorn! Because of this, sellers are able to sell to almost every person around them with ease. When working with popcorn, you also have the comfort of knowing that you are working with a packaged product that can be transported to your supporter with guaranteed freshness.
The first and potentially most important benefit is the fact that popcorn is an easy sell. With the exception of a very few, it seems that everyone we’ve talked to LOVE’s popcorn. At Pop Fund, we decided to pair this “LOVE” of popcorn with a lower price point for the buyer/supporter and a higher profit percentage for you, the seller. Our popcorn has a long-lasting shelf life of 8 months when stored in a dry, cool area like your home. This allows supporters to buy many flavors from the seller at one time while having the ease of mind of knowing they can eat it throughout the remainder of the year.
Many organizations have in-person events for their fundraisers, which can be hit or miss. This is mainly because it’s hard to get people to commit to showing up to events a lot of times. This is another benefit to doing a popcorn fundraiser instead. With popcorn fundraising, you can take the sale to a person rather than the person having to come to the sale/event. Plus, you can give your supporters the option of purchasing from you in person or online so that we can ship directly to them. Rest assured, every purchase has the same results: You, as a seller, receive a high-profit percentage for sale, your supporter is happy to support you, and they also get delicious gourmet popcorn for them to enjoy. Everyone wins!
