Non-profit & fundraising
Looking to raise money or say thank you to your donors and supporters?
The following FAQ will help you understand how the program works. If you have questions or are ready to move forward you can schedule a no-obligation, free consultation.
We love working with non-profit organizations to help raise money and awareness. Lakewood Candle offers wholesale pricing to non-profit organizations. This allows the organization to sell candles at retail pricing and turn a profit.
We wish we could give away candles to all of the wonderful organizations who contact us, but unfortunately that is not possible. However we do work with each organization to tailor a program that works best for the each particular group. Be sure to ask us how you can get a sponsor to pay for the candle program - you will love it!
The development time is guided by your request and desires. That said, we always work hard to meet design needs and deadlines. The container, packaging and fragrance program selected will determine the launch time. The lead time can be 2-8 weeks from artwork approval.
Finding the perfect scent to represent your brand is the goal. That said, we have an extensive library of fragrances we ave developed in house and/or worked with trained perfumers to develop.
If you are wanting to develop a new fragrance or try to duplicate a scent you love, we can help. This process requires research and development which takes time. A minimum charge of $250.00 per fragrance plus the cost of the fragrance oil(s), to test the fragrance, is required in order for us to present up to three versions of the target scent. Please note, we do not grantee to match other fragrances in the marketplace.
Each program is created based on the client's budget and desired retail price point. We will guide you through the options to help you meet your goal.

The first payment required will be to start the design process. During the initial, free consultation we will determine your artwork needs and discuss your specific artwork charges at that time.
Clients are required to pay for all non-stock packaging materials prior to order placement. You, the client, will own those materials and you will be billed for candle production at the time of order processing.
Because all orders are custom a 50% deposit is required prior to the start of product production. The balance plus shipping is due prior to shipping.
Our production team will prepare orders for shipping. We pack product in cardboard shippers and palatalize as needed for common carriers. We have the ability to ship large quantities to a single location or orders can be shipped to multiple locations at one time or various times. Shipping and fulfillment costs will be discussed based on a client's particular needs.
