- Football Lollipops
- Soft Caramels

Tumblers seem to be the popular choice for schools and sports teams this Fall. There are several choices for tumblers, including custom stainless steel or college team logos in your choice of order-taker brochures or up-front sales. Everyone loves tumblers!
2. Fund-Pass App
The Fund-Pass App is a new and unique fundraising idea. This is one of the easiest fundraisers, as it does not involve an actual product to deliver or purchase up-front by the school. And, it earns a 50% profit!
3. Halloween Smencils
Smencils (scented pencils) are one of my favorite fundraising products for schools! These scented pencils are something all students will need and will love to use and collect the different toppers. Also, it’s considered a “green” fundraiser because Smencils are made of recycled newspapers! Halloween Smencils include fun toppers with images of pumpkins, mummies, monsters, Frankenstein, and more. Plus, Halloween scents: Goblin Grape, Slime Lime, Monster Marsh, and Pumpkin! A great idea for students!
4. Halloween Lollipops
Halloween Lollipops are a sweet Fall fundraiser! The Halloween shapes of ghost, pumpkin, and skeleton lollipops will be a big hit with students and an easy sell.
5. Football Lollipops
Football Lollipops are also a fun idea for a Fall fundraiser. The football shaped pops include 6 yummy Fall flavors!
6. Soft Caramels
Soft Caramels make a great Fall fundraising choice. Caramels always remind me of Fall! There are 6 yummy flavor choices. This product is available in an order-taker or to purchase to sell.
7. Virginia Diner Peanuts
Virginia Diner Peanuts Order-Taker Fundraiser is a popular choice for Fall. The Holiday and Designer canisters make a great Christmas gift idea and your customers will take advantage of this fundraiser to do a little Christmas shopping. Plus, VA Diner Peanuts are the BEST!
8. Gourmet Popcorn
Popcorn is a great idea for Fall fundraising. With the cool weather, everyone is staying inside, watching a movie on TV and eating popcorn. The order-taker brochure offers 6 yummy flavors of popcorn.
9. Cookie Dough
The Cookie Dough Order-Taker is not new or unique, but it is still a popular Fall fundraising choice for schools. You can’t go wrong with cookie dough! Fall is a great time for cookie dough, since customers will need it for Christmas baking coming up soon. We do have new cookie dough brochures for Fall!
Candles are always a great choice for Fall, or any season. The wonderful Fall scents (Hot Apple Pie, Pumpkin Spice Pie, Sugar Roasted Chestnuts) will be hard to resist. Plus, candles make great holiday gifts. Available as an order-taker brochure or easy to order online.
New Fundraising Products
It’s always hard to come up with a new product for school fundraising. And, when you do, it’s always a risk with trying a new product. Will it sell? Usually, it’s worth it, so don’t hesitate to branch out and try your luck with something new. Parents and customers get tired of seeing the same brochure from your school year after year. Give them something new this Fall!
The Tried and True Fundraising Products
Maybe you’ve decided you still want to stick with the tried and true fundraising products. There is nothing wrong with a cookie dough or candle fundraiser! In fact, Fall is the perfect time for cookie dough, with Christmas baking coming soon. And, candles make great Christmas gifts. And, don’t forget the old stand-by, Scratchcards, for the highest profit.
A Successful Fundraising Campaign
Whichever product you choose, the main thing is to get the students and parents involved and excited about having a successful fundraising campaign.
