Fundraising for Animals: Bakeless Bake Sale Fundraiser

Looking for a simple and easy fundraiser for a project your animal rescue organization is undertaking? But don’t have a lot of time to plan it?  Look no further than a Bakeless Bake Sale fundraiser.

No venue needed.  No selling.  What could be better than that?

A Bakeless Bake Sale fundraiser is so simple to set up, all you need is to print out some letters and mail, or hand them out to your mailing list.

Bakeless Bake Sale Sample Letter #1

You are invited to NOT bake a cake, pie, cookies, or brownies.

You do NOT have to find the recipe.

You do NOT have to shop for the ingredients.

You do NOT have to mix.

You do NOT have to cook.

You do NOT have to cut.

You do NOT have to wrap.

You do NOT have to wash dishes.

You do NOT have to clean up your kitchen.

You do NOT have to deliver the baked product.

You do NOT have to stand in the heat/cold/rain to sell the baked product.

You can write a check for $10.00  to “name of organization” and stay home and enjoy doing something yourself or with your family!

Bakeless Bake Sale Sample Letter #2

Many is the time I heard you say
I would rather give a “Dollar” than bake today
And so, we are asking you to help more or less
To make our Bakeless Bake Sale a big success.

Just send us the money that it would take
To Bake a loaf of bread or a beautiful cake
Or send in the amount of money it takes to buy
A dozen rolls or maybe a pie
We know you can help us if you will but try.

I am buying or baking the items marked below.

Bakeless Bake Sale Sample Letter #3

A bit of news we have today…
A BAKELESS BAKE SALE is on the way.
In these busy days, who wants to bake,
A pie or cookies or even a cake.

You’d be surprised if you counted the cost,
of ingredients, heat, and the time you’ve lost.
Baking for sales is extra work.
Yet nobody really wants to shirk.

So we’ve thought of a plan that’s really grand,
and feel quite sure you’ll understand.
In an envelope, if you like, please include the price…
of a pie or cake or anything nice.

Without fuss or bother, you’ve done your part.
We hope you’ll give with a willing heart.
Wishing success for our BAKELESS BAKE SALE,
This is the end of our little tale.
