Overview of a Cookie Dough Fundraiser
Cookie dough is sold to parents, relatives, friends, supporters, and the general public by way of an order form supplied by a fundraising supplier. Orders are taken over roughly a two week period for specific dough flavors. At the end of the sale period order forms are tallied and the cookie dough is ordered. About two weeks later your cookie dough is delivered and you distribute the dough to your buyers. The dough can be refrigerated for weeks and frozen for months (exact lengths vary with each supplier).
All cookie dough suppliers offer frozen dough in several different flavors. Tub sizes and price points vary among suppliers. Some fundraising distributors offer more than one manufacturer, brand, brochure, or program. You may also find cookie dough included in a brochure along with snack items, cheesecakes, pretzels, drinks, and more.
And there is a new kid on the block- dry mix cookie dough. These dry mix cookie dough products ship and store easy and they are price competitive.

Potential Income for Cookie Dough Fundraising
Generally speaking, you can make between 30-55% profit on a cookie dough sale.
There are some variables that will determine your bottom line. The most important is how many tubs/cartons you will sell. Some suppliers offer free shipping on all orders (with a minimum order amount) and others have a case minimum before free shipping kicks in. Most all suppliers charge less per tub as the size of your order increases (increasing your profit). The best way to figure out what you will make from a sale is to talk to each company and have them help you calculate how much your group will sell and what your profit will be.
Other things will affect your profit so be sure and ask about them:
Most cookie dough suppliers recommend you have a minimum of 30-50 sellers to make your program successful.
