FUNDRAISING

Welcome to our fundraising page. Clair Scent Décor is passionate about fundraising and know how hard committees work to achieve profits for their organisation. Half the battle is coming up with an easy, fun, and unique idea that will keep everyone interested while raising lots of money. Over the years we have worked with kindergartens, schools, sporting organisations and senior citizen clubs (just name a few). During this time, we have perfected a few different fundraising ideas that can assist any organisation. Our most popular fundraiser is the ‘Picture / Photo Candles’, closely followed by ‘Candle Drives’. However, in most cases organisations run both at the same time.

The best news is now our fundraisers are all held online. When COVID-19 hit we were force to evaluate our system as paper fundraisers were no longer realistic. In the last two years we have tried and tested an online ordering and payment system that has worked perfectly. This system keeps getting better and better and means a lot less work for the committees. Families make payment via Paypal & Credit Card direct to Clair Scent Decor. Committee members are given private access from the start to see the orders/money as it comes in. Profits are then calculated in the end and transferred into the organisations nominated account. Before we introduced our fundraisers online, we didn't realise that the money handling side was such a big headache for committees, so this has been a breath of fresh air for every organisation that has used this system so far. Big win!

 

PICTURE / PHOTO CANDLES

Picture Candles are our most popular fundraiser with Childcare Centres, Kindergartens and Primary Schools. If you have had a child go through kindergarten, then you would remember ‘Picture Plates’. Well, this is similar.

Children do a drawing either at school or at home and then the drawing is transferred onto our gorgeous white candles. We use a special label that is super thin and looks like the child has drawn on the candle jar. High resolution photos are also accepted and look amazing. $5.00+ profit can be made on each candle. We have recently gone online with our order forms making the process a lot easier for both us and the organisation. Children still do a drawing on a piece of paper, but this is then uploaded onto the order form.  However, we still have hard copy forms available if that is more suitable for your organisation. If the children do the drawing at school or have their photo taken for the purpose of the fundraiser, then families still order online and staff send images to us via PDF or something similar. Therefore if you would like the image to be a suprise for the families then this is the best way. This is very common for Mother's Day fundraisers.

A popular option is to add a Candle Drive to the Picture Candles too. This will increase your profits.

CANDLE DRIVE

Candle Drives are so easy! They work with absolutely any organisation or can be added onto a Picture Candle Fundraiser. Think of a Pie Drive where you have a form with a list of pies and can simply order them. Well this is the same but with candles (not pies) and we choose our most popular products and fragrances available to order. We also add other goodies such as reed diffusesr, room sprays, candle care sets and wax melts. The organisation then receives 20% of total sales for profit. Therefor this 20% is seperate to the profits from a Picture Candle Fundraiser if you are having both. Easy money! Once again this is all handled online with each product beautifully showcased with detailed descriptions.

OTHER IDEAS

  • Mother’s Day Stall items at reduced prices.

  • Pop up stall with a percentage of sales going to the organisation.

  • Designing candles for specific fundraisers at reduced prices

Easter is quickly becoming a popular time for fundraisers. Also do not forget Winter. Candles, fire, and warmth…. this is the perfect time for a ‘Winter Warmer Candle Drive’.
