Lollipops are timeless candies that delight very young children as well as adults. That's why lollipops are perfect to use as a fundraiser for any organisation. You can use lollipops to help generate profits while you are conducting other fundraisers or you can have a stand-alone lollipop fundraiser. Either way a lollipop fundraiser will help sweeten your organisation's cash.

Decorating Lollipops

This is a nice fundraiser to use in conjunction with a carnival. Order oversized lollipops and provide a booth with icing and assorted small candies. Charge a fee to decorate the lollipops. Children and adults will enjoy eating a lollipop that they designed themselves. Lollipop decorating can also be offered with other fundraisers.


Some companies will custom design lollipops for your organisation to sell. Rather than submit a design or slogan, have a contest to determine what will be placed on the lollipops. Charge a fee to enter the contest. Organization members will love participating in the contest and it will generate interest in the lollipops before they're sold.

Games of Chance

Lollipops can be used for games of chance at fundraisers. Use a magic marker to colour the sticks of a few lollipops red or black. Charge a nominal fee for people to select a lollipop from large bag or arrange the lollipops by placing the sticks in a large piece of styrofoam. Give a small prize to anyone who selects a lollipop with a coloured stick. You can use smaller pieces of styrofoam and insert an individual lollipop in each one. Spread the upright lollipops on the floor and charge a fee for rings so people can try to throw them around the lollipops for prizes.

Themed Lollipop Sales

Lollipop sales can be used in conjunction with any other fundraiser or event. They are perfect to sell at book fairs, concerts, movies and sporting events. Additionally, themed lollipops can be sold to coincide with holidays and special events. Lollipops can be themed to complement Halloween, Valentine's Day, Christmas, Mother's Day or any other holiday. Advertise the sales well in advance of obtaining the lollipops and provide a small discount for advance orders.
