Turn your supporters into donors, one batch at a time. Cookie dough fundraisers are a sweet way to make money for your charity or non-profit group.
Running a cookie dough fundraiser gives you the support of a fundraising company, so you can focus on what you do best: Making money for your worthy cause.
Types of Cookie Dough Fundraisers
There are two main types of cookie dough fundraisers: frozen cookie dough and dry cookie dough. Both types are sold by fundraising companies.
Here’s how it works: You chose the cookie dough fundraising company you want to work with and they’ll supply you with sales materials. Next, your group distributes catalogs or flyers, takes orders and collects money from customers. The cookie dough fundraising company then delivers the product to you or your customers.
Cookie Dough Fundraiser Tips
Nobody likes a half-baked fundraiser. Follow these tips to ensure your cookie dough fundraiser runs smoothly:
- Do your fundraising homework. Before you start fundraising, read over the sales kit from the fundraising company carefully. Make sure all of your questions are addressed, such as minimum order amounts, when to collect payment, and after-sales support.
- Provide incentives. Offer prizes or rewards to the member of your group that sells the most cookie dough.
- Organize cookie dough delivery in advance. Some companies will deliver all of your orders to one location: For example, your school or home. It’s then your responsibility to get the orders to your customers. Find out whether your company will handle direct delivery and, if not, give your customers the delivery details as soon as they place an order. Ideally, you want to avoid running a door-to-door delivery service and have most customers pick up their cookie dough from you instead.
