Three different fundraisers with the same name: Krispy Kreme

  • Traditional Doughnut Sales. You simply buy the doughnuts at a reduced price and then re-sell them for full retail price or higher. Be creative about the location and time of distribution: you can choose to sell them at lunch time at high traffic areas, in the shops, intersections, community festivals, or to pre-sell them to family, friends and neighbors.
  • Certificates are an alternative to selling actual doughnuts. Your supporters can redeem each certificate for one dozen doughnuts at any participating Krispy Kreme retail store.
  • Partnership Cards. By buying a Partnership Card, your supporters will get a free dozen doughnuts by purchasing a dozen of their choice. Their card gets punched each time they use it and they can use it up to ten times.


  • Start pre-selling the doughnuts a couple of weeks before delivering; y our local store can provide you with pre-sell sheets to help keep the evidences;
  • Avoid shipping and ordering problems; work closely with your volunteers;
  • Set a reasonable goal for each person, for example, each person sells only 10 dozen;
  • After you take the order, select the coldest location available (out of direct sunlight and heat) as the point of distribution.
  • Watch out for hidden costs such as shipping and prizes as they may affect your profit.
