Okay, so donuts aren’t exactly the healthiest breakfast in the world, but they sure taste good!  You could also pull in some easy cash for your charity with a Krispy Kreme fundraiser.

Krispy Kreme has a variety of fundraisers available. One way to raise money is to just sell the donuts. They offer doughnuts to non-profit groups at a reduced price, which are then resold for full retail price, or slightly higher.

When I was raising money for the Leukemia Society, I brought in a few dozen donuts to work and just left them in the break room. On the honor system, people put one dollar (or more) in a jar for each donut.

I put up flyers around the office a few days before too. The first day I did this I only brought two dozen donuts and they were gone in like 5 minutes! The next time I brought in five dozen and they too sold like crazy.

This fundraiser was sooo easy because all I had to do was buy the donuts and then collect the money from the jar when they sold out.

Hint: You can get a money collector that is locked with a plastic tie at the Container Store.

Krispy Kreme also has several other fundraisers like selling gift certificates and partnership cards. You could even do all three fundraisers at the same time!

You can increase your sales by adding some other breakfast choices for your hungry customers. Contact a local bakery or bagel shop and see if they will donate or give a reduced price on a breakfast tray. This way you can cater to those who prefer healthier choices (or even more rich with pastries!)

    We have 5 girls from our HS Pom Squad who qualified for a dance troupe going to NY in the first part of November this year. We would like to do a KrispyKreme fundraiser to help pay the $1000 needed per girl to attend. Could you please send me some info ASAP so we can get going with our plans.

    Thank you very much, Laura Bradley

    My daughter was chosen to participate in the People to People program that was started by President Eisenhower years ago. The cost of the trip will be around 7,000 dollars. Would this be a good fundraiser that might help her raise the money?

    THank you,

    The Krispy Kreme is good but will probably only raise a few hundred. You may want to also do a letter campaign to people who don’t live near you.
