Fundraiser cookbooks are a unique and effect way to raise money for your organization, charity, or nonprofit. They have gained popularity over the last decade and are now used by churches, schools, and other organizations as a way to raise money while getting everyone in the organization involved in the process. Knowing how fundraiser cookbooks work is the first step on making money for your charity.
When dealing with fundraiser cookbooks, you do not have to worry that the expenses of producing a book will cost you more than you will earn. Fundraiser cookbooks can be made online with a fundraising cookbook website that will do the work for you. You can go online and upload recipes as well as choose the cover of the cookbook so it will be specific to your organization.
Now comes the fun part. If you announce to your organization that you are putting together a cookbook and want people to contribute, you will be provided with more “family” recipes than you will know what to do with. This is why fundraiser cookbooks are a great idea. They will not only make money, but everyone will feel like they contributed in a major way when they see their name and recipe in print.
Upfront money is not needed with fundraiser cookbooks. Many publishers will allow you to produce the book and pay over time. This will allow you to order copies of the cookbook and show them to potential donors. They can be pre-ordered by the donors and paid for upfront. The money that you generate can then be used to pay for the order. This way you will not have to pay any money out of pocket and you will know how many you will sell prior to even placing the order. This is a win/win for your organization and another reason why you should consider fundraiser cookbooks.
The final thing to keep in mind is that you will always have access to future fundraiser cookbooks if you need them. If you have a surprise order because you ran out or are just looking to stock up and sell them at a future function, you can order more from the publisher and have them delivered directly to you.
