Community

"Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered." ~ Proverbs 11:25

The Chocolate Shoppe would not be here if it weren't for the support of our local community members. It is our honor and privilege to give back to our community through a variety of ways including sponsoring local teams, offering fundraising opportunities for local schools and troops, and raising money for local families in need.

The Chocolate Shoppe offers fundraising opportunities for a variety of needs, including schools and daycares, sports teams, scout programs, church groups, cheerleading, dance teams, walk/run race benefits, clubs and activity groups, choir and orchestra, social services groups, animal rescues, wildlife rehabilitation centers, and so much more. Your organization can earn up to 50% in one of three ways:

1. Designate a date for your fundraiser to be held at The Chocolate Shoppe, present your guests with a special info-graphic that they show on their phone when they come into our store (Plano location only), and 25% of the pre-tax sales from your guest’s purchases will be donated to your cause or organization the next business day. We will promote this event throughout our business networks, social media, and neighborhood apps!

An online fundraising portal will be available this fall for any school or organization within the continental United States! Check back soon for details.

2. Present a special fundraising catalog sheet to guests where they will order selected products over a period of two weeks, and 25-40% of the pre-tax sales from your guest’s purchases will be donated to your cause or organization based on a tiered level of sales. We will deliver the items to you within two weeks of receiving the order forms, and you can distribute to your guests.

  • Sales up to $1,500 will earn 25%
  • Sales between $1,501 to $2,000 will earn 30%
  • Sales between $2,001 to $2,600 will earn 35%
  • Sales over $2,601 will earn 40%

3. Select a product to purchase at a significantly reduced rate and sell the item at a suggested retail price. For example, order bags of our Windy City Mix Popcorn at just $4.00 each, and sell the packaged item at sporting events, school concerts and plays, open houses, etc. for $8.00 each (or more). Your organization will earn 50% from the sales of these items, and you just sell them at times that are convenient for you. No pressure for order forms to be returned, no need to plan an event; just sell them at your events as they come up.

Please contact us for additional information or to schedule your fundraising event. Please allow two weeks to plan for a fundraising event with The Chocolate Shoppe. Please note - fundraising is not available during the months of October through February, or within two weeks of a major holiday (Easter, Mother’s Day, etc.)

The Chocolate Shoppe is the founder and sponsor of the annual Christmas Wish Fundraiser. Since 2011, the Christmas Wish Fundraiser provides a monetary donation to a local family for Christmas gifts and grocery needs, which is raised by donations from community businesses and residents. The recipient family is determined each year through nominations received by members of the surrounding communities. Over the past 13 years, we have raised nearly $20,000 through our Christmas Wish fundraisers.

The Chocolate Shoppe would like to thank Planet Pizza of Plano, IL and Scrap Wood Wonders of Plano, IL for being a business sponsor of our 2023 Christmas Wish Fundraiser (both for a second year in a row). Because of their kindness and generosity, we were able to raise $2,000 for two families in need during the 2023 holiday season.
