Here are some things to think about pertaining to Frozen Cookie Dough Fundraising Ideas:
1. The first thing to plan is your schedule. You want to make sure that you give your sellers two weeks to sell the frozen cookie dough. Less time might not allow for maximum sales. More time will mean early customers wait a long time for their cookie dough and remove any sense of urgency from sellers.
2. Give yourself at least a week before your sale starts to get your frozen cookie dough fundraiser brochures and promotional materials. That will allow you enough time to get organized and have everything ready to hand out when the time comes.
3. Don’t end your sale on a Monday or a Friday. Fridays are bad because if you have people who don’t turn in their orders on time they will have an entire weekend to forget again. Mondays mean people need to think about the deadline over the weekend and are more likely to forget. The ideal turn-in date is a Tuesday with a deadline of Thursday meaning you will not accept any more orders after that day.
4. Give yourself two full weeks in your schedule for delivery day. It takes that long for the cookie dough manufacturers to pull your order and get it shipped to you with on a frozen truck or packed in dry ice.
5. When thinking through your cookie dough fundraising schedule you want to allow 5 total weeks from the time you receive your order forms until the delivery date when your cookie dough is due to arrive.
