How To Be Successful With Cookie Dough Fundraising PDF

If you’re looking for a fundraising idea that promises big returns, then you can’t go past cookie dough fundraising. Buying the cookie dough in bulk and selling it through your school or organisation can give you a profit of up to $5 a tub! It’s one of the easiest (an yummiest) ways to make some money fast. In fact, cookie dough fundraisers are so popular that we’ve found many groups will get calls from families or members asking when the next cookie dough drive is going to be on!

So why choose cookie dough?

Who doesn’t love a plate of fresh cookies with milk? Baking cookies is a fun way to get the kids into the kitchen and families can save a lot of money by avoiding pre-packaged sweets. So using cookie dough for a fundraising drive is a win-win situation.

How does it work?

A cookie dough fundraising campaign is a simple, streamlined pre-order system, meaning you don’t have to worry about keeping any left-over cookie dough. First you need to select a distribution company. This is pretty easy because they’re all quite similar and offer a variety of flavours and varieties. Some favourites include Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal and Raisin, Snickerdoodle, Sugar Dough and Peanut Butter. Here are some of the best companies we’ve found online:

  • Easy Fundraising Ideas – these guys offer a range of cookie dough varieties from dry, frozen, pre-portioned and gourmet Chippery tubs. They’ll even throw in free shipping!
  • Fast Track Fundraising - this site has a great table where you can see how much profit you could make depending on how many tubs you sell. They also operate on a sliding scale whereby the more you sell, the cheaper the dough and the greater the profits are for you!
  • EZ Fund - offering cookie dough in 18 different flavours, EZ Fund also provide free selling kits in both English and Spanish.
  • The Goodies Factory - this company has a wide variety of cookie varieties, including fun “Create-a-Kookie” kits or fudge, brownie and slice mixes.
  • School Fundraisers - also featuring a profit chart, this company sells kosher cookies in a range of yummy flavours. They even have pretzel kits for the less sweet-toothed folk.

Next, you need to distribute your order forms and brochures. You’ll need a little bit of energy and effort to get the ball rolling here, but trust us – once people hear that you’re doing a cookie dough fundraiser, they will come to you! Then once you’ve collected all your completed forms, you use the money to place your order with the distribution company. Before you know it, people will be lining

How much does it cost the donors?

Depending on flavour, your donors can expect to pay anywhere from $12 to $15 for each tub. Considering each tub makes up to 48 cookies, that’s less than 35 cents per cookie! The cookie dough can be easily frozen and stored in the tub and baking is easy - simply scoop the dough into the size you want and place it on a lined baking tray. For the more portion-conscious, cookie dough is available in pre-scooped, individually wrapped ready-to-bake portions.

So, as you can see, with a little bit of organisation and effort, cookie dough fundraising is a guaranteed high-profit way to raise some money for your school or organisation. What’s more, it will be so popular that you’ll have donors begging for you to do it again!
