How To Organize Your Edible Cookie Dough Fundraiser
If your non-profit group, sports team or school is going to make the most money you better have a good plan. So here are a few ideas on how to organize your edible cookie dough fundraiser.
Tips to organize your edible cookie dough fundraiser
- Choose a captain. Every team needs a captain. The same goes for your gourmet cookie dough fundraising team. Select a parent from your PTA, PTO or sports booster club to be your “go to” contact for your edible cookie dough fundraising event. The captain plays an important role in taking the lead in training, encouraging and motivating your sales team.
- Set a goal for how much edible cookie dough to sell. What are you raising money for? How much do you need to earn? This is your goal. Divide the number of students on your sales team. This will give you the goal to set for each student to sell. Remember that the more you sell, the more your group can earn. If you have a school, then set a goal for each classroom. Each 2 pound tub of cookie dough is only $17. Your group can earn up to $8.50 on every sale you make.
- Draw a fundraising thermometer. Have one of your artistic students draw a fundraising thermometer for everyone to see the progress of your team. Make it big and put it in a place that everyone can see. Remember to use red ink to show how much you have raised so far. Update this as often as you can.
