Easy step-by-step guide for your school fundraising cookbook project

Each school has it's own way of setting up their cookbook book fundraiser. Here is what seems to be the most popular process, and some top tips to make it a success!

1. Ask for your free cookbook template here (MS Powerpoint, Google Slide or Adobe Indesign). We can make the book for you if you prefer (£2 per page).

2. Get parents keen! Some PTAs ask for a small fundraising amount for recipe entries (£1/£2). You could even make it into a competition! Why not ask a local restaurants to pick a winner(s) and give a meal discount as a prize?

This helps ensure maximum fundraising and keep the book price low, so families can afford to buy more than one. School Fundraising Cookbooks make great gifts! Also make sure you show families our beautiful sample book PDF, as this should give them an incentive to participate and buy.

3. Come up with a book price you feel comfortable with (see pricing below).
Get some sponsors!
This could cover part or all of the printing costs making profit for PTA 100% of the sale. Can you give parents who have their own business and local businesses the opportunity to advertise in your cookbook? Check out the Facebook group "PTA ideas exchange" for ideas and ask others how they did it. It's a very helpful group! You can also contact us - we're here to help!

4. Decide how you want to collect recipes/photos. Should you wish to, we can setup a free secure online form where families can submit their recipes and upload their photos - all free! You can view a sample form here; it can be customised to suit your requirements.

5. You/We make the book.

6. Proof your fundraising cookbook before it goes to print. We can send you a link to your cookbook online, so you can show it to parents. If it's beautiful, they'll buy it!

7. Take orders. No minimum order. No stock left over! Choose option from:
- Parents buy from school: Send a group order to us. Pay by bank transfer.
OR
- Parents can buy on our secure website. Just tell us the price you want to sell the books for, and we'll setup a page like this one. We can deliver all books as a group order to your school; and donate your fundraising amount back to you. No additional costs to the school. We'll just charge parents an extra 50p to cover transaction fees (see pricing below).

8. Allow about 12 days for delivery.

Saronti are amazing. They held our hands all the way through the process of creating a fundraising cookbook, which was new for us, and made it so simple. They were patient and helpful when... we got stuck and delayed. And the finished product was lovely - everyone was delighted with it and we sold every single copy!I can’t thank them enough!read more

Useful Tips for a successful fundraising cookbook project

Tip 1. Sponsors can cover part or all of the printing costs making profit for PTA 100% of the sale. Can you give give parents who have their own business and local businesses the opportunity to advertise in your cookbook? Check out the Facebook group "PTA ideas exchange" for ideas and ask others how they did it. It's a very helpful group!

Tip 2. Get parents keen! Some PTAs ask for a small fundraising amount for recipe entries (£1/£2). You could even make it into a competition! Why not ask a local restaurants to pick a winner(s) and give a meal discount as a prize?

This will help with getting parents engaged, ensure maximum fundraising profit and keep the book price low, so families can afford to buy more than one. School Fundraising Cookbooks make great gifts! Also make sure you show families our beautiful sample book PDF, as this should give them an incentive to participate and buy.

Tip 3. Using an online form to collect recipes is by far the easiest / quickest way. Saronti offers a free form to help you. You can see an example here

Tip 4. Measurements conversion: Not everyone uses the same measurements; so it will be very helpful to have a page in your book showing conversion charts for Imperial/ Metric measures and Oven temperature Centigrade/Gas/Fahrenheit. This is already included in our free cookbook template.

Tip 5. Beautiful images: Images families send are not always the best. The trick to make any photo look good is to zoom in as much as possible, and make them brighter/more colourful/more contrast. Most phones do this nowadays or you can use a free editor like this one

Tip 6. Check for capitals/ full stops etc.. Running a spell check is also useful!

Tip 7. Duplicates: If you have several of the same recipe, use the child's name in the title: eg. Nathan's Macaroni cheese, Daniel's Macaroni cheese.

Tip 8. Copyright: Our online form includes a prompt for parents, advising them to ensure the recipe is their own, to add their own ingredient/quantities and to write the method in their own words. If you're not sure, you could use an online checker like this one to check for duplicate content. We also encourage them to use their own photo. If that's not possible then we recommend you include a copyright page in the book and mention sources for recipes or photos.

Tip 9. The book is a great way to promote your PTA. Add a page with links to your facebook group, PTA site (if you have one), ways to donate ect...
