What Our Customers Say
I loved how every pie came labeled with the seller’s name on it. Our overall experience was very pleasant. Would love to deal with you again.
The product overall is great. Mainly the pies are what we sold and they are really good. A little pricey but overall no complaints.
The delivery went great and I love how the orders are packaged. It made it easy and organized for distribution. We had 2 orders with missing items and I submitted the paperwork for that earlier this week.
The fundraiser was amazing and easy to use. All item came packaged by child so distribution was a breeze. Clay made the whole experience very easy and smooth.
Everything was great and Clay took care of any issues we had quickly.
We sold jelly beans and we had a great turn out. Everything went great. We were very pleased with our outcome. We reached our goal to purchase t-shirts and had money leftover. Thanks for being patient and answering all my questions! Next time should go much smoother since we will know better how it all works.
There was a hiccup with the shipping costs which costs us more in the long run. Supply chain issues tried to stop this fundraiser but Clay helped navigate all challenges.
The fundraiser was great. The online sales made it very easy for my students to sell and have customers from areas outside of our normal fundraising area.
It worked great because it was food items. We had a great experience and the items sold really well.
Great service, great product. Very pleasant.
The communication and follow up from the company was great and our rep was amazing.
This was a great fundraiser. Easy for all involved. Plus, the cookie dough is delish! Excellent customer service!
Except for limited coffee choices in the online store, everything was great.
The delivery went well. All orders were delivered as promised. The driver was prompt and pleasant. This was our first time partnering with Big Fundraising Ideas and it was a learning experience. I personally want to thank you and Clay for being patient and understanding as we navigated through our fundraiser. I'm sure the next time would be smooth sailing.
The products sold well for the most part. We had planned to sell quite a bit more, but with quite a few of our group either being quarantined as a precautionary or no longer on the team after fundraiser was planned, it didn't go as hoped.

Brochure sales offer plenty of options and can thus yield great results. And showing a catalog to family and friends presents the opportunity to share your cause. Yet engaging your community can be intimidating.
But with our brochures and the right techniques you’re likely to hit your sales goals! One of our favorites is cookie dough, which is a tried and true classic brochure fundraiser. Or, if it’s autumn, try a pie brochure. Gourmet Pies offers a classic Pumpkin Pie that would be easy to slice up for Thanksgiving dinner.
Another option for traditional catalog sales is holiday gift wrap. Almost everyone will need it. So position this essential item alongside a compelling mission for your fundraiser. People will be thankful that you saved them a trip to a crowded department store.
Pro Tip: Make sure to remind people that the gift wrap is double-sided! This is a huge value-add, and customers will appreciate getting more for their money.
The major benefit to doing a brochure fundraiser is that you won’t ever run the risk of buying more than you can sell. This means that no matter the results, you will always be profitable. Brochure sales ensure no extra charges for needless products.
Sometimes with fundraisers like candy bars or pretzel rods, kids may lose an item or two. This results in an imbalanced spreadsheet of purchases. Selling out of a catalog eliminates this risk. When selling out of a brochure, customers place orders on an order form.
Additionally, catalog fundraiser sales are generally face-to-face with ample opportunity to converse. This benefit can make the entire process very personable. Delivering products is a great way to remind people why they supported you in the first place. And it’s a surefire way to connect with people in your community!
Building these kinds of relationships can create a sustainable customer base. Friends and family can support you year after year in reaching your sales goals. Be sure to thank customers again once they receive their product.
