If you are in charge of organizing your group’s fundraiser, obviously profit is your chief concern. You have probably considered frozen cookie dough fundraisers, but you may have wondered if that sort of fundraising idea will work for a group of your size.
The truth is, cookie dough is such a long-standing fundraising idea, such a tried and tested fundraiser, there are very few groups out there who don’t have success with it.
The only real concern is keeping the orders and money organized, and of course, dealing with the chaos that delivery day can bring. If you can stay on top of those two issues, you can set yourself up for big success with frozen cookie dough fundraisers.
The most common type of cookie dough fundraiser is the ones where you sell tubs of dough to your supporters, take orders in advance, collect the money, and then deliver the dough when it arrives on your doorstep. It sounds easy enough, but there are several factors you have to take into account.
One is, you have to be organized about the order taking, especially keeping track of the money. If you can assign one person to be in charge of the accounting, that will probably work best. Of course, you need to be able to trust your individual fundraising team members to be able to collect the money for their individual orders.
If you are working with kids for frozen cookie dough fundraisers, you will want to encourage their parents to keep an eye on the money until they turn it in. Frozen cookie dough fundraisers are great fun, and you can make a decent amount of money with them. Just take the time to stay organized, and don’t panic if things get a bit complicated. It will all turn out well in the end with a little effort!
