Avoid Frozen Food Fundraiser Disasters: Tips for Success

Frozen Food Fundraising Questions & Answers

Don't sell cookie dough, pizza, cheesecakes, or candy with any fundraising company before you ask these important fundraising questions!

Is there a minimum purchase requirement? Almost all fundraising companies require a large 300-400 item minimum on their cookie dough. We do not have any minimum order requirements. One single person can sell our cookie dough or thousands of people, it doesn't matter. Look at your options.

Is there a shipping fee? Most fundraising companies do not charge a shipping fee IF you sell over 330 tubs/boxes of cookie dough but DO charge a fee if you sell less than that amount. Make sure your shipping fees are reasonable if you are not going to have a large number of items sold or you will end up spending all of your profits on shipping.

How is my product shipped? Make sure if you are selling a frozen product that your items will be shipped in dry ice or on a refrigerated truck. Cookie dough will survive days at room temperature but cheesecakes will not be as successful.

What will my profit be? Most companies only offer a 30% profit for orders under 300 items and require large commitments to achieve a reasonable profit margin for your group. Profit calculators on websites are an easy way to be fooled into thinking your receiving a higher profit then you are. We offer a flat rate profit of $5.50 for every single item sold, regardless of the number of items sold. Your fundraising profit will be larger and you won't have to use a sliding scale to determine what your group might earn depending upon what your group might sell. Make sure you understand the profit.

What is the sale price of the cookie dough? Cookie dough prices vary depending on the company you choose. Don't fall into the trap of selling your cookie dough for $13-$16 per tub. If your selling them that high you will not sell as many.

Do you offer a prize program? Some companies do offer a program and others do not. This is a very important part of your cookie dough sale. Prizes incentivize your sellers and a sale without prizes will not be as successful as a sale with prizes. Make sure if they don't offer a prize program that you do with each any every fundraising sale. It will increase your profits.

Do we have to pay for the prizes out of our profit? Make sure if a company does have a prize program that the money for these items does not come out of your profit. You do not want to learn at the end of your fundraiser that the prizes will cost your group an additional 20% of your profit. Prize programs should be provided with no charges to your group.

Do you provide the supplies to get started at no charge? Never pay for your selling brochures or posters to advertise your sale. About 75% of companies offer these items for free.
