We have found that the pre-portioned cookie dough sells better. We with MC Fundraisers...they have an ad in the yellow pages here. The cookie dough sells for $15 per box and for every 10 boxes the seller sells they get a free box of dough. They also send 10 free boxes of cookie dough for booking a sale. They then have a directors incentive sheet as well. We have done a sale with them for several years. Orders are back in 15 days and pre-sorted per seller so we dont have the hassle on delivery day.

They dont offer prizes (just the sell 10 get 1 incentive) but their profit is WAY better than most! We offer small incentives from our profit for top sellers to keep everyone motivated. As I have stated in other fundraising topics last year we raiserd $37,000.00 with 500 kids selling an average of 10 boxes each.

After driving my daughter around to get orders, twisting arms, and driving to drop off the product, I spend well over the $40 on gas. As a teacher I dislike having money tossed at me to organize and keep track of before it is handed in.

I hear this from a lot of people and I know how these campaigns just soak up time and extra money. I'll give you a tidbit of scheduling advice to cut back on some of that:

One of our clients in the past scheduled a saturday after their cookie dough shipment had arrived. He called his customers/donors through the week and gave the time and location where they could pick their order. He said after 2 hours all the buckets were picked up!

Now all your campaigns won't work that neat and tidy but it should cut down on the amount of deliveries you have to make.

I have found with the company we use, I can work out a better percentage for the school to earn. So when the flyers come, they may say 40%, I get to sharein the parent letter we are actually earning 50% profit and the proceeds help XYZ.

If you search cookie dough fundraisers, it's crazy how many are out their and everyone- EVERYONE- has a story! Our tubs were $12 and $14 for boxs. And while I'm more likely to bake my own, I just can't compete with Apple Cinnamon Raisin Cookies!

Fundraisers are our never ending homework assignment!

Your best bet is to buy from a company that gives a lower percentage of profit and spends more on rewards. That way you will sell a lot more cookie dough and make more money. Your best bet is to stay with the $12 tubs and order them by the case of six. This gives you some extras left over for those that forgot to order, and also gives you some leeway in case people said "but I meant to order...." As to cost, cookie dough is heavy, and costs a lot to deliver. The more diesel fuel goes up, the more has to be built into the price of the dough to cover delivery.

Fundraising is an oddity in marketing. It works on net profit rather than gross profit. In any marketing/retailing the net profit is determined by income less expenses. Some companies will work with you on a gross profit program which allows you to control your own overhead.
