(November 30th, 2019)
It's time to think about the Easter bunny fundraiser! Last season we worked with many local schools with over 2000 bunnies sold by students, we were thrilled with just how many people ordered bunnies and the exposure we are gaining throughout these fundraising projects. Great job by all! Christmas season (2016) we worked with Canaan, Dexter, and Newport on the Christmas fudge fundraiser with over 800 pounds of fudge sold by students from those schools!!! We were very busy!!! A special thank you to the students, their parents, all the teachers and school faculty who are participating on these and past projects for your hard work getting the orders together and on time! Thank you so much for the great opportunity to get our name out there! We always look forward to working with you!

(School fundraising information) Updated November 30th 2019.
Through the years we have received many inquiries from local schools and organizations about getting on our list for the Christmas Fudge and the Easter bunny fundraisers. In the past we have had to turn down some requests as we reached our capacity very early on for each. I apologize as it is extremely hard for us to turn anyone away and we are so thrilled to have such interest in our products and the desire to buy local. With that said, we will be considering each inquiry each season on a first come first served basis. I have posted deadlines and information below for these fundraisers.


Be the first to get in on the Christmas Fudge fundraiser at the very beginning of each school year by contacting us in September, booking by October 1st. Remember to lock in with the Easter Bunnies at the beginning of January. We will be accepting letters for (Easter 2020) starting in January through January 30th. We are again thinking about a Mother's Day Fudge fundraiser if we have enough interest, and ask to be contacted by March 1st. Again, all will be considered on a first come first served basis until we are at our capacity. Please follow the instructions below to be placed on our list. Thank you!

Send a letter of intent to Nelson's Candies 949 West Ridge Road, Cornville Maine 04976. In the letter please describe a bit about how the funding is used to benefit your school or organization. Also state we have been approved by the school board or your organization to work on your fundraiser. Please include all contact information (including email as this makes it easier for me) for future fundraising and your organization's tax exempt #. This request is the first step to getting on our list and will be required annually for each fundraiser. Thank you in advance!


We appreciate your patience as we work out details to make it fair for everyone in the future. We thoroughly enjoy being a part of our community and value each and every one of our customers.
Thanks so much for your continued loyalty.
