If you are thinking about running a cookie dough fundraiser for your school group, church, or sports team, you’ve come to the right place. We have a variety of cookie dough fundraiser ideas, ranging from mixes all the way up to pre-formed cookies that you just pop on a baking sheet.
Choosing the right fundraiser is important, but even more essential to your fundraising effort is knowing what you need to get started. The first thing you need is a clear financial goal. So many fundraising efforts fail because the group had no idea what they were aiming for.
“We just need a lot of money” isn’t good enough – you need to sit down and figure out exactly how much so that you have a concrete target to aim at. The size of your fundraising team and the amount you need will determine what sort of cookie fundraiser will work best for you.
The next things you need are the right tools to get the job done. Cookie dough fundraisers aren’t difficult, but they do involve order forms and product distribution. We send you all the brochures and order forms you need to get started, no matter what the size of your group, but it’s up to you to make sure that it all stays organized.
It’s a great idea to delegate the specific task of keeping track of the orders so that there’s one person who knows exactly what’s going on and can handle the situation if any confusion arises. But the most important thing you need for organizing a cookie dough fundraiser is a positive attitude.
Make sure that your group is happy with the fundraiser you’ve chosen, and that it’s the right product for your target market. Cookies work well in a variety of contexts, so with any luck, finding supporters will not be a problem!
