If you cook for a fundraiser does all the money go to them.I have been asked to bbq for a couple of fundraisers.Really not sure how to charge.I dont mind helping out,but Ineed to cover my cost.Any thoughts are appreciated.
I ALWAYS COVER COSTS PLUS A DOLLAR PER PLATE .. SOMEONE HAS TO PAY INSURANCE, ,TAXES, MILEGE AND ITS USUALLY ME .. NEED TO MAKE A PROFIT SO YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN NEXT YEAR .. MOST CHARITIES UNDERSTAND THEY CAN'T USE YOUR SERVICES IF YOUR NOT IN BUSINESS..
Watch out and read the fine print so to say on fund raisers. Some want your time and effort at no cost. The last two replies Billybones and BOS sound good. Make sure you know what is expected of you and what you expect from the group making the request. Most of my problems in the past with fund raisers is a break down in communication.

The key to fundraisers is to demonstrate to the organization that the draw that your name and product will bring is such that even with your portion of the proceeds deducted, the event will still net a healthy cash injection for the cause.
If you pull this off with success then you will benefit from one of the neat things about fundraisers, the organization will become your best marketing partner. Free promotion is a beautiful thing and of course the spin off business it creates is a real bonus.
