Our Fundraising Heritage
Our concept of Product Fundraising was invented over 75 years ago by our founder Ed Opler Sr. to help support the financial needs of schools, churches, athletic groups, as well as charitable community service organizations through the sale of our products. In 1949, chocolate product fundraising began with our World's Finest® milk chocolate with almond bar. Years later, we introduced our most complete line of fundraising products, with over 15 different flavors to choose from. Shortly after, our chocolate products entered the internet and other markets to broaden their distribution. By 2008, World’s Finest® Chocolate had created all kinds of custom fundraising solutions and packaging, such as personalized fundraising labels and the option to create your own variety pack. Today, we continue to lead the fundraising industry with our personalized premium quality chocolate products and programs. We’ve sold over 6 billion chocolate bars and helped raise over $4 billion for organizations across the country.
