What Our Customers Say
Delivery went very well and we were extremely pleased with how organized everything was. The only issue we had was with FedEx delivering a day late. All of our volunteers and parents were ready for pick up and then we found out last minute it wasn't showing up. Otherwise, we had a very successful fundraiser and look forward to doing business again with you in the future!
Answer all my questions in a timely manner. All items where pack very well. Very nice people. Always made sure everything was ok.
Our experience with your company was outstanding! Well organized from start to finished and out of all our orders (there were a TON) we only were missing 2 boxes of dough. I was so impressed and will certainly be looking to organize another fundraiser with this company in the future. Thank you for making it smooth and easy!
Great! Easy to get questions answered and complete the sale.
This was pretty straight forward. Easy to start and came all organized and labeled.
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Your group profits when participants take orders from your Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough brochure.
Do participants get a brochure to show?
Yes. Every participants receives a brochure, order form, and money envelope.
Is money collected up front?
Yes. Supporters can pay by check, cash, money order, or cashier’s check.
They also have the option to pay using their phone. (These orders still need to be written on the order form)
Are there any fees?
There are no setup fees or supply costs to start an Otis Spunkmeyer 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.
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.
How long can cookie dough be left unrefrigerated?
Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Dough can be left at room temperature for 6-8 hours.
What are your cookie dough baking instructions?
PREP: Do not thaw before baking. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
BAKE: Place frozen cookie dough pieces 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Bake to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
COOL: Let cool for 15 minutes before removing from baking pan. Cookies will remain soft after cooling.
Can we also raise money online?
Yes, online selling is an important part of your Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough fundraiser. Prior to your start date you’ll receive instructions so your participants can register. 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.
Do participants need to register?
Registration is the most effective way to generate Otis Spunkmeyer cookie sales 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, “Thank you for supporting John Doe with ABC High School Band!”
Registered sellers will also be eligible to earn credit towards prizes. We encourage groups to supplement our prize program with their 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, your group will receive its own group ID number. Participants will need it to register and share your store with others using social media, text, and/ or email.
- Direct Link: Or, we can create a unique link that would bypass the registration process. You can then post the link on your website as well as on various social media channels. Your group would also be able to share your link with their friends and family. If you want this option simply let us know in the comments section when submitting your start a fundraiser form.
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?
Yes, Otis Spunkmeyer can be set up to accept donations. You make 70% of the donated amount. You have the option to turn this feature off when logged into your portal.
Donations do not count towards items sold.
Can buyers credit more than 1 participant?
Yes. Buyers can choose to support more than 1 participant. Before continuing to the store, supporters would need to select a participant. Then choose the ‘Support another seller’ link to add another participant.
However, participants themselves need to register individually. Each participant has their own login and sharing options.
Is there a minimum order?
There are no order requirements for a Otis Spunkmeyer 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 $22 so your gross sales would be 600 Items x $22 = $13,200.
- Since your profit is 40%, your group profit would be $13,200 x 40% = $5,280.
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:
- Which participants have registered
- Email and social share activity
- Participant and group sales progress
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: We deduct your online sales profit from your invoice. If you raise more money online, we’ll send you a check for the difference.
Donations: Any profits from donations are deducted from your brochure invoice.
What is our profit?
Groups make 40% off of all brochure and online items.
You receive 70% of online donations.
(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 3 business days after purchase.
How are online customers notified about their order?
Customers receive a confirmation email when they place their order. A notification email is sent once their order ships.
Where do orders ship to?
Product ships out of our Indiana warehouse to all lower 48 states.
How is our order packed?
Brochure orders deliver prepacked by seller.
Is there a shipping fee?
A shipping fee is charged based on the total items sold by your group.
|Items Sold||Profit||Shipping Fee|
Minimum Order Requirement: Your group must sell a minimum of 100 items. If you fall short of 100 items, you will need to purchase additional items to meet or exceed 100 items.
NOTE: Both brochure and online sales are factored into the total items sold.
Sellers show buyers a brochure and they write their order on the order form and pay. All brochure orders are shipped to your group. Buyers do not pay a shipping fee.
Sellers invite buyers to shop at your online store using email, text, and/ or social media. There are 2 ways that buyers can choose to have their online order shipped:
1. Ship to Buyer
Customers pay a shipping fee at checkout to have their order shipped direct to them. Free shipping on all orders over $100.
|Order Amount||Shipping Cost|
*The following states have a $120 free shipping minimum order requirement: AZ, CA, CO, ID, MT, ND, NM, NV, OR, SD, UT, WA, WY
Only nonperishable items are shipped to the buyer.
2. Ship to Group
Instead of paying the shipping fee, online customers can choose the ‘ship to group’ option. They pay a 5% processing fee to have their order shipped to your group.
For example, a $50 order would be charged an additional $2.50 ($50 x 5% = $2.50). The total cost for the order would therefore be $52.50.
We then combine all ‘ship to group’ orders and ship them to your location along with your brochure order.
Both nonperishable and perishable items can be ordered online and shipped to your group as long as you are using a cookie dough or frozen food brochure.
An extra fee will be charged for a liftgate, inside delivery, and/or delivery to a residential address.
Groups with over 100 participants
As long as groups with over 100 members average $20 or more in retail sales per enrolled participant they will avoid our supply cost fee. (Since the average price of an item listed in a typical cookie dough or frozen food brochure is about $20, that is about 1 item per enrolled participant)
|Ave. Retail Sales / Enrolled||Supply Cost Fee|
|$0-$9.99||$1 / Enrolled|
|$10-$14.99||75¢ / Enrolled|
|$15-$19.99||50¢ / Enrolled|
A quick way to determine your average retail sales per enrolled participant is to divide your total sales by your group enrollment. Consider the following 2 examples.
If your group raises:
- $2,500 with 150 participants, your average retail sales per enrolled participant would be $16.67. In this case you would be charged 50¢ x 150 = $75 (See chart above).
- $3,500 with 150 participants, your average retail sales per enrolled participant would be $23.33. In this case you would not be charged a supply fee because you reached $20 per enrolled participant.
Another way is to multiply $20 by your enrollment number. So if you have 150 participants, your shipping would be free if your retail sales are $3,000 or more (150 members x $20 items/member).
Keep in mind that many sellers will sell more than 2 items while others may not sell at all. As long as your group averages about 2 or more items you shouldn’t incur a shipping fee.
Additional fees are added to the invoice. Order delivers within 3-4 weeks after order forms are received by the company. Big Fundraising Ideas is not responsible for products not stored properly.
Late orders that aren’t received in time to be added to the first order will not count towards the shipping minimum order requirements. The group will also be responsible for any late order shipping fees.
Do you ship orders to sellers?
There is no ship to seller option available for an Otis Spunkmeyer 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. Sellers will have 7 days to report any missing or damaged items. Groups are allowed 1 submission per fundraiser.
