Cookie dough fundraising is becoming very popular with many fundraising groups today. It’s no surprise, since freshly baked cookes are as easy to sell, as they are to eat!
How Cookie Dough Fundraising Works?
Using order-taker brochures, your group members allow your supporters to choose from a selection of mouth watering flavors, some of which include Chocolate Chunk, M&M’s, Peanut Butter, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, Reese’s Pieces, Hershey’s Kisses and White Chocolate Macadamia.
Once all orders are taken and the money has been collected, the order forms are tallied and the cookie dough is ordered with your fundraising company. About two weeks later, your cookie dough is delivered for you to distribute to your buyers. The dough is usually packed in 3 lb tubs. Because most cookie dough comes frozen some planning with your fundraising company is needed for delivery day. However, some of the newest cookie dough requires no refrigeration and will keep for many months.
No Money Up Front
Since cookie dough fundraising is an order taker fundraiser, you can fundraise without putting any money up-front. This is great if you are low on cash to begin with. Most tubs sell for $10 and expect to make between 35% – 55% profit depending on how much your group sells. Make sure to choose a fundraising company that provides free shipping since 3 lb tubs can add up fast. A group size of 20 and larger is recommended, but any group can raise anywhere from $1,000 – $10,000 and more if they are motivated and focused.
