SAN LEANDRO, Calif., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Cookie dough has become one of the most popular ways for scholastic, community and nonprofit groups to raise money. Otis Spunkmeyer makes it easier than ever to tap into this trend with its Otis Easy Direct-to-You fundraising program. The program, launched by Otis Spunkmeyer in September, gives organizations the ability to work directly with the company and includes website resources such as ideas for fundraising activities, as well as product information and success stories. To support spring fundraising, the company is launching its "baker's dozen" program. For every 13 cases of cookie dough an organization purchases from Otis Spunkmeyer, it pays only for 12.

"Our fundraising customers are already a very loyal group," said John Schiavo, CEO of Otis Spunkmeyer. "This program recognizes that loyalty and gives them an opportunity to pull in an additional $90 in profit with every 13th case. It's also an attractive introduction for those who need to raise funds for their organizations but are first-time users." Information on fundraising with cookie dough in general, promotional ideas and the baker's dozen program can be found at www.myotisfundraiser.com.

"We are committed to providing fundraising organizations with the Otis Spunkmeyer products they love so they can more easily meet their financial goals," Schiavo continued. "After more than 20 years in the business, we felt our customers could benefit from our expertise and programs in a more direct relationship with us. They can now enjoy the complete confidence and convenience of partnering with the cookie experts, along with the knowledge that no one is more vested in their fundraising success than Otis Spunkmeyer."

Through the Otis Easy Direct-to-You fundraising program, the cookie company directly supports organizations through every step of the fundraising process to ensure the most enjoyable and profitable experience possible. From sourcing the finest ingredients, to manufacturing and quality control, to customer service and Direct Delivery off of an Otis Spunkmeyer truck—where products are delivered, unloaded and staged on-site—Otis Spunkmeyer is in control.
