How To Host A Cookie Fundraiser

December 12 2017

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

A cookie fundraiser is a simple and easy way to raise money. If you have a FlipGive fundraising page, you could earn up to 10% cash back on everything you purchase for your cookie sale! 


When to run your fundraising event:

You can run your cookie fundraising event anytime, but these kinds of fundraisers are most successful when they run at the same time as holidays, like Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. You can sell themed cookies to your supporters, which could help you raise more money. There are a couple ways you can raise money for your fundraising event. 


Bake sale style fundraiser:

Talk to your local bakery and see if they would be willing to donate cookies for your fundraiser. If you’re planning on running your event more than once, you can have an ongoing agreement with your bakery. You can also pre-order cookies through FlipGive, which means that on top of your fundraising dollars, you earn up to 10% cash back. If you’re planning on running your fundraiser this way, make sure you have bags and boxes for your supporters to take their cookies home in. 


Online cookie sale fundraiser:

If you start a FlipGive campaign page, you could earn 10% cash back on cookie gift baskets, making your fundraiser completely hands free, you won’t even require volunteers!


Organizing volunteers for your cookies sale:

If you’re planning on running your fundraiser more than once, after team games for example, have a reliable schedule for your volunteers so that they can plan and be available during your fundraising event.
