How To Create A Cookbook Fundraiser

Step by step instructions on how to get it done!

Creating a successful fundraising cookbook has never been easier. CookbookFundraiser.com was developed to make the process easy to understand and accomplish. Here is a step-by-step guide to creating a successful Cookbook Fundraiser:

1. Choose Your Fundraiser Type

You can choose to create your own custom group cookbook, filled with your members recipes and photos or you can take advantage of our ReadyMade cookbooks filled with tried-and-true family recipes to save time.

You can also offer related items such as cookbooks, software, magazine, subscriptions, kitchen, items, and more, and receive 40% to 60% of the sales price for your group. Your website will also accept donations for people who are not looking to buy anything but want to help support your group which goes straight to your bottom line.

Now you can personalize your group’s cookbook webpage that will act as the centerpiece for your fundraiser.

2. Personalize Your Cookbooks

For your group custom cookbook, our platform will help you collect the recipes, design your cookbook, and pick a cover. It takes a little longer, but your group members will love seeing their family recipes helping the group.

Your ReadyMade cookbooks are personalized with your group’s name on the cover and two pages of texts and photos to describe your group and its need for the funds you are raising.

3. Peer to Peer Fundraising

Upload your group membership list or have them register directly on your website to get everyone involved. Our system will automatically send texts and emails to friends and family requesting their support while keeping your group members motivated.

4. Launch Your Website

Everything from recipe collection to cookbook sales are handled online in one place – your group website. Each active member also gets their own member webpage personalized with their name, photo and a personal welcome message for their contacts. They share that unique URL with family and friends and all sales from that page get credited to their efforts.

The organizer can see real-time sales information and who is responsible for contributing the most sales.

5. Collect Your Group's Profit

Within two weeks of the conclusion of your fundraising period, your group will receive a check with the proceeds from your efforts. You will receive 40% to 60% of the retail sales price without any upfront investment. Donation profits are even higher!
