Giving back

One candle at a time

Door County Candle Company is more than a candle company. We are a candle company with a cause and a candle company with a mission to help those in need, one candle at a time. With every purchase of your Door County Candle product, a portion gets donated back to charity.

Making a Difference

Creating Change



In February of 2022, Door County Candle launched a Ukraine candle fundraiser. This fundraiser sparked a light inside of us to use our candles as a way to help those in need. We have raised $1M for Razom for Ukraine to date! This candle was the beginning of our mission to create change with our candles.
