My 5 yr old and I had an idea for a fundraiser for the local animal shelter, but have NO CLUE how this might work. It would involve making cookies (LOTS, hopefully), which would include the artwork of kids, which parents would pay for, and the $ would be given to the shelter. Since i would include edible images, I would like to get enough $ to cover just that aspect - otherwise I would donate the cost of ingredients and my time.

How can I pull this off? Is it a good idea or terrible? Any feedback would be most appreciated.

thanks, but I don't know the ins & outs of what I can or cannot do regarding baked goods. Hence my request for help. I want to make $ for them, not for me to get into trouble. icon_wink.gif

I helped with a fundraiser very similar to this, the team leader asked the organization that they were donating to to supply the start up money(it was only about $50) you should try and ask them. the worst they can say is no

We just had ours. Each year they hold a spaghetti dinner. Tickets are $5 and the local fire hall allows us the hall & kitchen for free. Desserts are by donation. If you look at my pictures you'll see what I donated this year.

good luck,

do I have to be a legal business?

Discuss it with the shelter and their board of directors. They may have one that you aren't aware of and then you just organize your idea into what they already do.

Good luck,
