A fundraising cookbook project can benefit your organization

My wife and I are involved in several non-profit organizations. Some are fraternal in nature, others have to do with our church, and one revolves around law enforcement. All of them have needed to raise funds at one time or another. Some of the most successful fundraising efforts have been cookbooks. Yes, the good personalized fundraiser cookbook.

There are several cookbook publishers that offer programs and products to help you create and market a quality, unique product for your fundraiser. It can be for a school organization, a civic group, or a charity. Regardless of the nature of your fundraiser, cookbooks are a well-established way to raise money for your organization.

Too Many Cookbooks Still Not Enough

Don’t be afraid that people already have too many cookbooks. If that were the case, fundraising cookbook publishers would not be thriving in this economy. The beauty of a cookbook is that they are personalized. They consist of recipes from members of your group and/or community. Every “little old lady” in town has at least one famous recipe that has been kept secret for decades. With the right approach, she can surely be persuaded to leave him for a good cause. I would buy a cookbook for just one recipe for my sister-in-law’s apple pie. So far I haven’t been able to take it off, but I imagine she would provide it if it helped find a cure for cancer, or ensure the school band could go compete out of state somewhere.

they are popular

One of the organizations we belong to created cookbooks about 6 years ago. Every year we get the cookbook publisher to print more copies and we sell every one of them. We had no idea how popular it would be. I guess what I’m trying to say is that instead of selling a boring t-shirt or a ridiculous foam hat, you should consider contacting a cookbook publisher to find out how easy it can be. Find one with a warranty and one that has been around for a while. A quality publisher will provide you with samples for you to look at, and once you’ve decided to do so, they should offer you support and guidance.

Start wheedling your friends, neighbors, and co-workers for your favorite recipes, find a publisher you trust, and create your own cookbook.
