Fundraising idea - Krispy Kreme

Here's a great idea for anyone interested in doing a fundraiser for the HPS Network. As I hope you all realize, we are in great need of funds for this year's conference. This would be an especially great fundraiser if you've got access to a high traffic area. We have a number of college students - a college campus would be ideal!

4 Ways To Raise Funds


Traditional Doughnut Sales
Krispy Kreme offers our doughnuts to non-profit groups at a reduced price, which are then resold for full retail price, or slightly higher. Pre-selling doughnuts to family, friends and neighbors or selling doughnuts at high-traffic areas such as shopping centers or community festivals can generate significant funds.

Check with your local Krispy Kreme store regarding ordering details.


Certificates are a great alternative to selling actual doughnuts. You sell certificates to family, friends and neighbors, which they can redeem for one dozen Original Glazed® doughnuts (per certificate) at any participating Krispy Kreme retail store. That way they still get the delicious Krispy Kreme doughnut experience, but can time it for the exact moment their Krispy Kreme craving hits! It also means you don’t have to deal with ordering and delivering doughnuts after you’ve made the sale.


Partnership Cards
If your school or organization is within 30 minutes of a Krispy Kreme retail store, you may want to consider selling Partnership Cards as a fundraiser. With a Partnership Card, customers get a free dozen Original Glazed® doughnuts with the purchase of a dozen of their choice. Their card gets punched each time they use it, and they can use it up to 10 times (limit 3 free dozen per visit).

Please Note: Partnership cards and certificates are valid only at participating Krispy Kreme retail stores. They are not redeemable at grocery stores or convenience stores or any other location that is not a Krispy Kreme retail store.


Krispy Kreme’s Signature Coffees are available for fundraising in participating markets. We have four great coffee blends: Smooth, Bold, Rich and Robust Decaf. Try selling 12 oz. bags on their own or with our other fundraising products. When you sell Krispy Kreme Signature Coffees for your fundraising activity, your profit is $3.00 or more per bag. Ask local store managers for details.

Heather - your post today about Krispy Kreme is a great idea. I thought they only did doughnuts. Did you know you could take this one step further? I run a company called Signature Joe (signaturejoe.com). We create personalized fundraisers similar to those famous cookies only with gourmet coffees. The fundraisers can be traditional off-line or completely online or a mix of either. Feel free to give me a call or email.
Cheers, Jeff
