Planning a Fundraising Cookbook

Creating a fundraising cookbook is a fun and creative project, its simple to organise and can potentially raise considerable funds for your good cause.

Step One – Asking People to Submit Recipes for Inclusion in your Cookbook

The first step in creating your fundraising cookbook is to source suitable recipes to be included within your books. One way is to ask your community members to help you to create your cookbook by supplying you with recipes to be included.

Step Two – Typing Up Your Recipes

You want to set a deadline for the submission of their recipes. You will have to set a deadline as you will need time to have all your recipes typed up in a suitable desktop publishing program.  You can layout your cookbooks exactly as you require and you can jazz up your recipe book by using images to illustrate your recipes. You could ask people to supply an image for you to use when they supply their recipes. You just need to consider copyright when using images.

Step Three – Proof Reading Your Cookbook

Once all your recipes are typed up you want to proof read your cookbook, you are looking for typing errors so check all spellings. There is nothing worse than having your cookbooks printed only to notice at a later date that there are spelling errors that were not noticed before printing.

Step Four – Convert your recipe book to a pdf file

You have checked and checked your cookbook for spelling errors, you are now ready to send your file to us for printing. The most convenient way to send your file to us is to convert your fundraising cookbook into a pdf file and email your file to us for printing.

Step Five – Send Your Cookbook File to us for Printing

Email your file to us for printing, you can also save your pdf file to a memory stick and then post it to us.

Step Six – We send you a Proof for you to check

Once we have your file, we can then make sure your file is good to print and we will email a pdf proof for you to approve.

Step Seven – We print and arrange delivery

You approve your proof and we then print and arrange delvivery of your cookbooks
