Welcome to a fresh idea in fundraising!

Fundraising With Fudge

Walnut Grove Mercantile offers an exciting program selling delicious, fresh fudge. We launched our WGM Fundraising program in 2004, when a local church group approached us.  The popularity of our fudge with the group’s need for funds made a perfect match. Since then, we have been proud to help many organizations across the country meet their needs. Let us help you today!

How It Works

Fundraising Information

Sales Programs

We offer two fudge fundraising programs, Advance Sales and Sales Event. Choose one or both, depending on your organization’s needs and schedules.

Advance Sales

Your organization chooses a defined selling period (many groups sell in advance of a holiday). After you set your fundraising goal, your members will take orders from family, friends, and neighbors. Once we receive your group’s order, we will make your fudge fresh in time for you to deliver it to your supporters or for them to pick it up at your designated site.

Sales Events

Special events for your organization, school, church, or community are great times to fund raise. Estimate the number of people attending, and we will help you determine how much fudge to purchase in advance so that it is available right at the event. Some types of events to consider include sports tournaments, community celebrations, arts events, church bazaars, and conferences.

Profits

Your supporters can choose half-pound boxes, sold for $5.00 each, or one-pound boxes, sold for $10.00 each. Your organization keeps half of the money you take in and sends the other half to us with your order. For a sales event, your organization pays half-price for your fudge in advance and then keeps all that is taken in at the event. Calculate your profits by viewing our Profit Chart.

Ingredients

Our fresh fudge is made with real cream and butter. All of our fudge is made in a facility that uses nuts in some products. View a detailed listing of the ingredients we use to make our fudge below.

Fudge Storage

Fudge will not spoil, but over time the outer edges may harden if the fudge is left in the open air. Keep your fudge at room temperature, wrapped in the special liner in its box. Storage in a refrigerator may cause fudge to absorb odors and moisture. To store fudge for a longer period of time, put the whole box in a zip lock freezer bag, squeeze out as much air as possible and place in the freezer. The fudge will keep indefinitely in these conditions. When you are ready to eat the fudge, remove it from the freezer, leaving it in the plastic bag until thawed.
