So you’ve decided: your group is planning a cookie dough fundraiser. Great! It’s a smart and easy fundraising idea because, hello, cookies are an all-time family favorite that can’t be beat.
But deciding to hold a cookie dough fundraiser is only half of the equation! We have a bunch of cookie dough options, so the next step is deciding which fundraiser is best suited for your group.
We’re going to break down all of our cookie dough fundraisers so you can quickly see the benefits of each one. But first, let’s talk about what to consider when making your choice!
What To Consider For An Easy Fundraising Experience
When deciding which cookie dough fundraiser is the best fit for your group and community, there’re a few things you’ll want to consider.
1. How Much Time Do You Have?
How much time do you have to properly plan, launch, and run your fundraiser? We all know that time and dates can sneak up on us, only to point out that we have far less time than we thought.
For shorter time frames, we suggest running an online fundraiser. Virtual fundraisers can earn your group the same or more than you could have raised in person because of the sheer volume of people it can reach. Because it’s so shareable, online fundraisers often take significantly less time to hit or exceed your fundraising goal!
2. Income Range Of Your Supporters
Before you solidify your fundraising idea, make sure it’s within a comfortable price range for your supporters! Better to offer a product with a lower price point and encourage supporters to buy more if they can afford to.
3. Know What Your Supporters Want to Buy
Sure, it’s true: for a good cause, most supporters will dutifully donate their money even if they don’t love what you’re selling. But your group will raise so much more money if your community is excited about what you’re selling. Don’t be afraid to survey them and find out!
4. Online or In Person?
Online fundraising was a lifeline last year and continues to be a highly convenient and safe option as we ride out the pandemic. But, fundraising in person may be the best option for your community or the favored method. Only your group knows what’s best for your community.

Our cookie dough fundraiser was so easy. We had not fundraised in several years, so we didn’t know what to expect. We were hoping to raise $4,000 profit, and we ended up earning over $8,500 profit!
