Fundraiser Seller Tips




Choosing a Distributor
A reputable fundraising distributor is crucial to a successful fundraising event. Once your organization has decided to sell HERSHEY'S candy, you will need to discuss your fundraising goals with a fundraising distributor that distributes HERSHEY'S products and will ultimately supply your group with the product to sell.

To receive the name of a HERSHEY'S distributor, simply call 1-800-803-6932 or complete the form on the "Contact Us" page of this web site.

When choosing a distributor, it's helpful to have them answer the following questions:

  1. How long has the company been in the fundraising business?
  2. What value-added services, such as tallying, student packing, etc. does the company offer?
  3. How much do these services cost, and who pays for it?
  4. How will the company's program meet the financial needs and fundraising goals of your group?
  5. What percentage of profit will your group receive?
  6. Does the company deliver in the evenings and/or on weekends?
  7. Does the company offer 24-hour reorders?
  8. How responsive will the company be should problems arise?
  9. When does the group pay the company?
