(NAPSA) - A number of non-profit groups have found the best way to supporters' hearts may be through their stomachs. Fundraising efforts that involve food have proven to be some of the most popular charitable initiatives nationwide.
They haven't always been profitable, however. While school and church bake sales do promote a community atmosphere, the time, effort and ingredients required tend to make bake sales a poor fundraiser when it comes to profits.
But all this has changed with the introduction of gourmet frozen cookie dough for fundraising.
Experts say the success of a food-centered fundraising program depends mostly on two key ingredients: Profitability and taste. Gourmet frozen cookie dough provides the quality and taste of home baked cookies with high profit margins that you can't get from a bake sale.
For example, several groups have had success selling gourmet cookie dough.
The frozen dough can be sold for 10 to 12 dollars a tub and profits can range from 30 to 55 percent (the more dough that's ordered, the higher the profit tends to be).
Equally important, however, is the popularity of the product. Different types of cookie dough (including Snicker Doodle Surprise, Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and Chunky Candy Delight with M&M's) are available and the cookies are easy to make-Moms and Dads need only scoop and bake dough that can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two months.
