Fundraiser Question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Can someone help me interpret the law on home baked good for fundraisers?

I believe it says it is ok if it for a church sale.

 

Does it have to be for a church?  I wanted to donate a cake to my son's school.  They are having a Tricky Tray (Chinese Auction).  The money raised benefits the school.

 

Would this be ok?

 

Thank you!

I think you probably need to tell us where you live as different countries, and even different states, have different rules.

Maybe you can donate a gift certificate instead of an actual cake?

Seems like that would be closer to "selling" than I'd like to be.

If I donate a cake people will bid on it (with tickets) and a winner will be drawn at random.

 

But since it is not for a church I am not sure if it is ok.

I donated a cake to my daughter's school raffle last year.  Wasn't a problem.  I wasn't legal yet...

Fundraisers for non-profit organizations are usually considered "occasional" events and no permit or license is necessary, If you're worried, call your local health department.
