FAQ

There are so many fundraising companies. Why Gold Canyon?

At Gold Canyon, we believe in giving back. By choosing Gold Canyon Candles for your Fundraiser, you’ve selected a simple yet highly profitable Fundraiser for your organization. It's an exciting product and easy program that will give your supporters A Happy Fragrance Experience™ while giving you a happy selling experience! Plus, with our updated E-Fundraising platform, organizations can raise money more conveniently than ever. Simply share your organization’s custom URL link via email or text and you can raise funds from all over the country!

 

How much will our organization earn?

The amount your organization raises is entirely up to you, but Gold Canyon has taken great strides to make sure you earn serious "scents". Our program is set up for you to see a generous gross profit of 40% from the price of each candle sold!

Is there a minimum requirement to submit a Fundraiser order?

Yes, the order needs to be $400 retail in order to qualify as a Fundraiser order—that's less than 20 candles!

How long should our fundraiser last?

The length of the Fundraiser is up to you. The average selling period for a successful Fundraiser is 2-3 weeks. Gold Canyon recommends staying within this timeframe for it to be the most effective.

Will our supporters like the fragrances you are providing us?

Certainly! We have hand-chosen our customers' favorites and best-selling fragrances for your supporters. With a wide array of succulent fruits, blooming florals and warm spices to choose from, the selection of aromas will appeal to every supporter of your organization!

Are your product selections simple for our sellers?

Absolutely! Your sellers will offer one candle size that’s available in 15 fragrances and colors.

What is the schedule if our organization has another Fundraiser?

There are two Fundraiser seasons per year that support your organization, Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. The current season, Fall/Winter, is from July 1 through December 31 and the upcoming Spring/Summer season is from January 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019.

How does an organization get started?

Simply create an account, submit a fundraiser application and we’ll get you up and running in no time. You can track individual seller’s progress if they create an account and join your fundraiser.

Don’t want to have individual seller accounts? That’s fine, we’re totally flexible. You can give out your organizer’s customer URL link and have everyone use that. This is a simple way to utilize the online selling feature without tracking how your individual sellers.

 
Do I pay tax and shipping on online orders?

Tax is charged on web orders based on the laws governing tax in the state that the order is shipping to and are not covered by the Exemption Certificate provided by the Organization.

Shipping is $6.99 or 10% of order subtotal on orders over $70 on all individually shipped orders. Shipping is free for any individual or organization order over $400. Direct shipment sales do not count towards individual or organization bulk orders.

Only closeout orders by approved tax exempt organizations will be tax free. Closeout orders are the final bulk order placed by an organizer that is the final order of the fundraiser.

For example: If your aunt purchases a candle to direct ship to her house, she would pay the $6.99 plus tax. Your organization receives $8.00 profit on that candle sale. For the approved tax exempt organization to receive free shipping on their bulk order they must still place $400 in non-direct ship sales.

 

Do we have to place a bulk order with our organization or can we just sell through our custom link and have it direct shipped to each buyer?

Our E-Fundraising platform is flexible which means you can run your fundraiser how you choose! If you’d like to only sell directly through your custom URL link and have candles ship directly to your supporters, you can do so. If you choose to hit the pavement and do a fundraiser the traditional way, collect cash and have your organizer submit a bulk order, you can do that as well. Keep in mind, if they place a bulk order, shipping is free on orders over $400!

Do your fundraiser both ways to optimize your organization’s profits!

 

Is there a minimum sale requirement to enter in a Fundraiser?

For E-Fundraisers, there is no minimum sale requirement. Simply sell amongst your friends, family, coworkers & more in person or online through your custom URL link and closeout at anytime.

Keep in mind, to receive free shipping on your bulk order, it must be $400 or more.

 

How and when do organizations get paid?

Organizations receive their payment following the closeout order of their fundraiser. The closeout order signifies that the fundraiser is officially over and no more sales will be made. At this time, payment will flow into Gold Canyon’s weekly payout process. Please allow for 5-7 business days for payments to be processed.

Organizations can choose to be paid by ACH or Check which can be updated in details of the My Fundraisers under their account.
