About Diamond Group Fundraising

Based in Atwater, a small town in Portage County, Ohio, Diamond Group Fundraising provides personalized, expert fundraising services to groups within 2 hours of the Akron-Canton, Ohio area and offers online sales of fundraising candy to the lower 48 states.


Over the last 17 years, our President Kevin Nisly has worked with thousands of schools, band boosters, football teams, soccer teams, dance studios, day cares, youth sports teams and trip groups to provide the very best service, products and expert advice available today!
We offer three main types of services: Brochure sales, Cash and carry candy bar sales and Holiday Shop (Santa Shop) services.


Our goal is to make the most out of the sale, every time! By combining a custom built prize program with high quality, high value products, we ensure the best possible chance of obtaining your fundraising goals. Whether you are part of a large group, or a small team, we can help you find the right product to reach your financial goals.


Kevin Nisly started working as a sales rep for Award Fund Raising in 1998. Award Fund Raising was one of the nation’s largest distributors of Hershey’s candy bars and Zap A Snack French bread pizzas. Kevin maintained a territory of 7 counties, including Summit, Portage, Mahoning, Trumbull, Stark, Columbiana, and Ashtabula counties. In the summer of 2015, Kevin started his own company (Diamond Group Fundraising) and now cares for all of Award Fund Raising’s previous customers.


Kevin and his Wife Carol of 18 years have 4 kids and are active members of their community. Together, Kevin and Carol run a non-profit called aLittleBirdie.org. This online based 501(c)(3) is designed to help people in their time of need. Over the last several years, Kevin and Carol have used this non-profit to give back to their community and share the love of Christ with people of every walk of life.


“An Architect, Not a Salesman”


Over the last 19 years, Kevin has studied both successful and under-performing fundraising efforts and has a proven fundraising approach based on his experience. “There are 4 key factors that make or break a sale, all of them start with a P. Product, Promotion, Prizes and Payment collection.” Groups that follow the advice offered by Diamond Group Fundraising most often exceed their fundraising goals. Allowing our team to truly understand your goals, environment and challenges will help us custom tailor a fundraising program for you!
