Pecans For Fundraisers

Good pecans have a crisp texture and nutty-oily flavor that most people have come to know as that sweet buttery aftertaste. They are a nutritious choice for a quick bite and a delicious ingredient for making desserts.

Need bulk pecans or special pecan treats for your charity or fundraiser? Finding quality pecans to help with your fundraising efforts is easier than you might think. Millican Pecans understands what fresh means and can meet your pecan needs for any type of fundraiser.

Why pick pecans for your fundraiser?

Pecans are a heart-healthy snack, carrying over nineteen vitamins and minerals. The natural fats, proteins, and carbohydrates it offers are enough to give you a boost of energy to get through the day. It is a great source of monounsaturated fats, which help remove LDL or bad cholesterol from the arteries. This helps to lower the risk of heart disease or stroke by removing any build-up that would cause dangerous blockages.

Antioxidants help fight off free radicals that cause damage to your cells. Pecans contain folic acid, vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, vitamin A, zinc, and B vitamins, minerals that help enhance the body’s immune system. These antioxidants help repair the body’s cells and support muscle health while keeping free radicals from causing oxidative stress.

 Having enough fiber in your diet is important for digestion and the heart. Fiber helps lower cholesterol and keeps your digestive tract running smoothly. This nutrient is well-known for weight management as it makes you feel full longer. Pecans are the perfect go-to snack between meals.

 Fundraising Ideas

In addition to the health benefits, pecans offer a delightful taste that people of all ages can truly appreciate. There are several unique pecan fundraiser options to meet the needs of any age group or organization.

 School Functions

Raising funds to help with field trips and school events does not have to be a hassle. One of the most popular selections for these groups is the candy pecan fundraiser. Millican Pecans offers a brochure of exceptional sweets and products. It includes a sales packet for each student that is participating in the fundraiser. These sweets and candies are handmade using fresh, Texas grown pecans and have been met with great success. 

Imagine raising enough funds to bring your fifth-graders on a school camping trip. Better yet, what if the students sold enough candy pecans to host a school-wide family fun day. Events like this are an excellent way to interact with the community while celebrating the student’s achievements.

Fundraisers are an engaging and fun way to finance all types of school clubs. Maybe the band room needs new instruments or the library needs new computers. Have your middle-schoolers been wishing to take a class-trip to their favorite amusement park? If your choir group lacks the budget to compete, consider a fundraiser. Perhaps your science club would like to visit the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC, or the Exploratorium in San Francisco. No matter what reason the funds are needed for, a candy pecan fundraiser will not disappoint.

Seasonal Fundraisers

Pecans increase in popularity during the fall and winter months. It’s no surprise as pies make their yearly table-top appearance. The holidays have always been reason enough to enjoy a slice of pecan pie or delectable chocolate-covered pecans. After all, it is during the fall and winter months that you tend to see more pecan gift baskets and tins out.

Millican Pecans offers gift tins of pecan nuts covered in dark chocolate, white chocolate, milk chocolate, or amaretto. There are also pecan clusters and sugar-free options.

Holiday baking is another reason there is an increase in the sale of pecan halves and pecan pieces. If you are interested in taking advantage of that time of year a seasonal pecan fundraiser would be an outstanding choice.

Sporting Events

Pecans for fundraising is one of the best and healthiest choices for athletic clubs. Not only are pecans a tasty snack, but they also provide much-needed nutritional benefits for athletes. Easily educate your soccer team on the healthful gains of pecans while boosting support for new uniforms.

As a teacher and coach, it’s easy to recognize when some students cannot afford dues for playing sports. Why not rectify that by holding a pecan fundraiser? No more leaving teammates behind just because it wasn’t in the budget. It’s also a great way to cover the expenses needed for away-games and overnight stays.

Church Fundraiser

Is your church group seeking new ways to interact with the local community? Perhaps your congregation is interested in hosting weekly dinner events in which the whole neighborhood is invited? The lack of a decent budget can certainly present some issues with these plans.

A pecan fundraiser could be what turns the tide. Simply combine a church bake sale with some friendly conversation. Raise the funds you need by presenting people with savory flavored pecans, yummy treats, and enticing Texas pecan pies.

Charity Events 

Public awareness and community support can be difficult to attain when you are trying to raise funds for a charity. A pecan fundraiser is one way for your charity event to get recognized. What better way to bring people together than to offer a distinct treat that everyone can enjoy.

Does your equestrian foundation lack the funds to teach more children? Maybe you need to raise money for the local animal shelter? Regardless of the type of charity event you are hosting, using pecans for your fundraiser is an enjoyable way to satisfy people’s stomachs, hearts, and minds.
