How do I organize a Great American Cookies fundraising event?

Fundraising with Great American Cookies is just as easy and even more rewarding than digging into some delicious cookies. It only takes 1 minute to set up! You’ll want to:


  1. Choose a Great American Cookies location that’s close-by for your group and its supporters
  2. Select a date and time that works well for your group
  3. Complete some basic information about your organization
  4. Submit your request!



Requests should be submitted at least 2 weeks in advance so the restaurant has enough time to confirm the event and prepare for your group. Any group can fundraise: college clubs, churches, school PTAs, you name it!


Once your event is approved, it’s time to promote! Spread the word to all your supporters and send them to your event’s unique Meal Page, where they can RSVP and learn more about the event. Check out our post – How to Host a Successful Restaurant Fundraiser – for more tips and tricks for setting up an unforgettable event.


Day-of, every person that shows up during your event and says they’re with your organization will have a portion of their bill added to your donation total. Delicious cookies + a fun time with your supporters + funds for your group = the best fundraiser ever. Within 4-6 weeks after the event, expect a check in the mail for 20% of the total sales from your event. Cha-ching!


Get this: there’s no limit to the number of Great American Cookies fundraising events you can host. That means there’s unlimited potential to how much your organization could earn!
