How to do it:
2. Advertise the sale using email, flyers and newsletters and signs.
3. On the day of the sale, decorate several different tables with different themes, cupcakes, pies, tarts, cookies, candy etc. Assign 1-3 volunteers per table. Ask people who are dropping off baked goods for the sale to arrive 1 hour to 30 minutes early. Arrange the goods on the correct tables and mark them clearly. Do not overcharge as customers know product was donated and may even have donated themselves. Make sure to thank everyone who donated items!
Combining a bake sale with another event can create a buying frenzy. Consider hosting a bake sale at a school sponsored movie night, a big game, school carnival or another school event. Any opportunity you have to offer food to a captive audience is an chance at a successful bake sale!
PROS: One of the easiest fundraisers to host. Parents enjoy preparing and providing baked goods. Schools can utilize their kitchens as well. This fundraiser requires little to no monetary investment and time required to plan and host is limited.
CONS: Many schools, districts and states have regulations against providing junk foods to children and cooking in home kitchens may be a violation of health and safety laws regarding safe food preparation.
