What Our Customers Say
I don't think BFI could have handled this situation better. There were never any rosy promises, but they were able to get us out of the penalty for being under our goal with the cookie company. I guess somebody ate this cost somewhere. I will definitely consider BFI again, hopefully under better circumstances next time.
Delivered on time.
Good. Made $2,600
As far as I know delivery and distribution went well. There haven’t been any complaints from the parents and the feedback on the quality of the cookie dough has been positive. We will most likely want to do another fundraiser around the same time next year.
This was a great fundraiser. Easy for all involved. Plus, the cookie dough is delish! Excellent customer service!
I don't think Big Fundraising Ideas could have handled this situation better. There were never any rosy promises, but they were able to get us out of the penalty for being under our goal with the cookie company. I guess somebody ate this cost somewhere. I will definitely consider Big Fundraising Ideas again, hopefully under better circumstances next time.
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Your group profits when participants take orders from your cookie dough brochure.
Do participants get a brochure to show?
Each participant receives a fundraising flier that has an order form attached along with a money collection envelope.
Is money collected up front?
Yes. Supporters can pay by check, cash, money order, or cashier’s check.
Are there any fees?
There are no setup fees or supply costs to start a $18 Cookie Dough fundraiser.
Can participants earn prizes?
Yes. Our prize programs are optional but recommended. You can boost sales by incentivizing your participants. It’s important to discuss your incentive plan at your kickoff meeting. Then, continue to remind your participants about your prizes throughout your campaign. This will keep them motivated to sell.
If your group has 100 or more participants, a prize flyer is placed in each seller’s packet. For smaller groups, the sponsor receives a PDF with their ‘fundraiser supply kit’ email.
There is no cost for our incentives.
How soon can we start?
After you submit our start a fundraiser form you’ll receive an agreement to sign. It will then take at least 7-10 business days to process your order and pack and ship out your supplies.
How long is the fundraiser?
Your sale lasts for 2 weeks. You can always change your end date. Simply let us know before your sale is over.
Can we also raise money online?
Yes, selling online is an important part of your $18 Cookie Dough fundraiser. Before your sale, you’ll receive registration instructions to pass onto your participants. Once registered they’ll be able to invite friends and family to shop at your store.
Selling online adds a 2nd way for your group to raise money.
Your online store will include additional items not found in the brochure. You will need to let us know if you only want to display your specific brochure items.
Online Store Options
You can choose between 2 different online stores:
- $18 Dough Only. 2 lb. tubs
- Full Inventory. This includes 2 lb. tubs, 2.7 lb. tubs and preportioned
By default, we’ll set you up as a ‘full inventory’ store. If you only want option 1 or option 2, you will need to let us know which one you want in the comments section of the start a fundraiser form.
Do participants need to register?
Registration is the best way to sell our products online. Once registered, participants can invite friends and family to your online store using text, social media, and/ or email. They’ll also be able to log into their sales portal anytime and track their online sales.
Once potential supporters arrive at your store, the participant’s name and group appear at the top of the page. This helps to personalize your fundraiser. For example, “Purchases from this site support John Doe at ABC Band”.
Registered sellers will also be eligible to earn credit towards prizes. We encourage groups to supplement our prize program with your own rewards. This can bring in even more sales. Here are some incentive ideas.
Do we get our own link?
There are 2 ways to promote your store:
- Registration: By default, you will be provided a link to forward to your participants. Once they click on it and register, they will receive their own unique online store link via email. They can then share their link with others using social media, text, and/ or email.
- Direct Link: Or, we can create a unique link that would bypass the registration process. Your group would be able to share your link with their friends and family.
By promoting a direct link, you will only be able to track online sales as a group, not by individual sellers. As a result, participants would not receive prize credit for selling online.
Online Ship to Group Orders
Another limitation with a single store link is getting items to online customers who choose the ‘ship to group’ option. Normally when participants register and send out their own unique links and customers make a purchase, orders are automatically tied to a particular seller.
Any items then ship to the group already packed inside the seller’s box with their other brochure items. Participants then deliver these items to their customers.
But with the single link option, you will need to let any ‘ship to group’ buyers know to pick up their order because it won’t be associated with any seller.
Can we accept donations?
$18 Cookie Dough does not offer a donation option.
Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?
No. The online store is set up so that only 1 participant receives credit for a particular sale.
Is there a minimum order?
There are no order requirements for a $18 Cookie Dough fundraiser.
How much money can we make?
You’ll need to know your group size as well your participant goal. Here’s how you can estimate your profit:
- Participant Count x Participant Item Goal = Items Sold
- Items Sold x Average Retail Price = Gross Sales
- Gross Sales x Profit % = Group Profit
- Let’s say you have 60 participants and you set your participant item goal at 10. The items sold would be 60 participants x 10 Items / participant = 600.
- Next, determine your gross sales. The average retail price is about $18 so your gross sales would be 600 Items x $18 = $10,800.
- Since your profit is 40%, your group profit would be $7,200 x 40% = $3,360.
Keep in mind, our example is only an estimated profit. In reality, participants probably won’t sell the same number of items. In addition, the average retail dollars sold per seller will vary.
Can we track our sales?
Brochure: You probably won’t know how many orders you get until you collect your order forms. But there are strategies that can give you a ballpark idea. Learn how to track your fundraising progress
Online: You'll be able to track online sales in real-time. By logging into your dashboard you'll see:
- Who’s registered
- Orders and units sold by seller
- Amount raised by seller and group
How do we receive our money?
Brochure Sales: Money and order forms are turned in at the end of the sale. The money gets deposited in the group’s account and the order forms are sent in for processing.
Once orders are processed, the group receives their sales reports and invoice. The group sends a check for the invoice amount and keeps the rest as profit.
Online Sales: Once we receive your brochure invoice payment, we’ll send your online sales profit check.
What is our profit?
Groups make 40% off of all brochure and online items.
(Use the ‘Calculate Your Profit’ calculator at the top of the page to learn how much money your group can make)
What about sales tax?
How soon do we receive our order?
We deliver brochure orders to your group 3-4 weeks after receiving your order forms. Online orders generally ship to customers within 5-7 business days after purchase.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships out of our Louisiana warehouse to all lower 48 states.
How is our order packed?
Brochure orders deliver prepacked by seller.
Is there a shipping fee?
Brochure Sales: Groups must sell a minimum of 500 items to waive the minimum order fee. The fee is $1.00 for each item short of 500 items sold. (For example, if group sells 450 items, they will be charged 50 items x $1.00 = $50)
Fuel Surcharge:To account for fluctuating fuel prices and the cost of transporting goods, a 50¢ per item fuel surcharge will be added to your invoice.
Online Sales: Customers pay a shipping fee at checkout to have their order shipped direct to them.
Buyers also have the option to ship their order to the group. In this case there is no shipping fee.
NOTE: Both brochure and online sales count towards waiving the 500 item minimum order shipping fee. When shipping to your group you must order at least 100 items.
Do you ship orders to sellers?
There is no ship to seller option available for a $18 Cookie Dough fundraiser.
How are product issued handled?
If you have any items that need replacing, you’ll need to submit a form that we’ll attach to your delivery notice email. You’ll have 2 days to report any missing or damaged items. Groups are allowed 1 submission per fundraiser.
